  1. He leaned forward, eyes gleaming. “Until then, I will say this to discourage any experiments: magic takes just as much energy as if you used your arms and back. That is why you felt tired after destroying the Urgals. And that is why I was angry. It was a dreadful risk on your part.

It is your best hope of matching his power.” The elf’s gaze sharpened. “What is the cost of magic, Eragon?”
  16.  
  17. “Energy. A spell costs the same amount of energy as it would to complete the task through mundane means.”
