Carvahall, Eragon's home, is a sleepy little village tucked away in a secluded corner of Alagaësia. Imagine Smallville, Superman's hometown, except without any of the super-strong babies. (Heroes yes, but only the baby dragons are super strong.) But Eragon's home is more importantly his Uncle Garrow, cousin Roran, and the farm they tend together—you know, where the heart is. Our hero loses all of that early on in Eragon, and he's forced on a quest. And hey, maybe that quest will lead him to a place where he can find the same peace and security that has been taken from him by the forces of evil.
