    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    "Engaging yet predictable"
    Overall

    Paolini continues to spin his story that is engaging and entertaining to listen to. Though, as with his first novel, the plot is predictable and dialogue that is intended to be dramatic is often laughably absurd. The story is fun to listen to, but Paolini still needs to refine his style and his stories would benefit from more original plot twists (echoes heavily of LOTR and The Wheel of Time).

    That being said, I've just downloaded Brisingr and am about to continue the tale...
