Eragon and Saphira from the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.

A smile tugged at Eragon's lips as he looked at the small creature. Tentatively, he reached out with his right hand and touched its flank. A blast of icy energy surged into his hand and raced up his arm, burning in his veins like liquid fire. He fell back with a wild cry. An iron clang filled his ears, and he heard a soundless scream of rage.
Every part of his body seared with pain. He struggled to move, but was unable to. After what seemed like hours, warmth seeped back into his limbs, leaving them tingling. Shivering uncontrollably, he pushed himself upright. His hand was numb, his fingers paralyzed. Alarmed, he watched as the middle of his palm shimmered and formed a diffused white oval. The skin itched and burned like a spider bite. His heart pounded frantically.[…]

I almost thought you had given Eragon long hair (who is that with Saphira) but then I realized it was just a shadow behind him. BTW nice job

Really? I always think he was light hair and I see the film after reading. But I might be mistaken :) I'll check it up in book ;)

While it has been some time since i read the book, and while om sure you are correct, i seem to remember that Eragon was also depicted with blonde hair in the Movie.

Never liked that...
