During my research, I learned that in the ancient times, dragons were often seen as evil, destructive, and bringers of death. For example, the dragon Apophis in Egyptian mythology was the enemy of Ra, the sun god. Babylonian creation myths describe the dragon-like monster Tiamat, who was associated with chaos. Dragons also played a crucial role in the Bible, where they were frequently identified with Satan.
Research: In both the East and the West, the dragon is often associated with fantasy and mythical realms. Yet the outer appearances and common perceptions of the dragon differ greatly in these two parts of the world.
A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan (namely the Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian countries.
Eon is a young crippled warrior in a mythical land in Ancient China vying to become the apprentice to the Dragoneye. In the culture in the book, there are 12 dragons, one for each animal in the Zodiac, and each dragon has a Dragoneye, a human counterpart through which they commune and use their magical powers to protect the land. It goes in cycles, and each dragon and Dragoneye reign for a year before it moves on to the next one.
Eragon is a series about a boy who finds a dragon egg. It is a fantasy book and it is my favorite book of all time. It is very entertaining and it has a lot of good fantasy elements in it. The vastness of the mythical dragon world called Alglasia gives you a sense of reality even though the book is purely fiction.
