    Oaths sworn . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide. Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

    Overall

    I loved the first two books and eagerly awaited this, the third and final installment of the famous Eragon trilogy. Unfortunately this is not the end. Evidently there will be another book. This book covers no ground. Most of it is mindless rambling or filling just to stretch out the adventure for another book. If Paolini is a great writer, he will write other great books with different characters, why does he see fit to drag Eragon out until he pulls the character down from one of present day literary greatness to a mediocre after thought. Greed is the only answer I can think of. It is such a let down and such a shame I spent 2 credits on a book I could skip completely with the exception of maybe three sentences and pick right back up with the next.
    I copied Douglas' comments because I felt exactly the same as he did. The ending was very unsatisfing!! Since this is a trilogy, there isn't suppose to be a 4th book, but there was NO ending provided in this installment. An extreme let down.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Excellent book. This is the first time I have listened to this author. I loved the book. It really makes you think. Well written with lovable characters.

    Billionaire genius Genoa Greeves never got over the shocking death of her favorite teacher, Bennett "Dr. Ben" Alston Little, murdered execution-style and stuffed into the trunk of his Mercedes-Benz. No arrests were ever made, no killer charged for the brutal crime. Fifteen years later, the high-tech CEO reads about another execution-style murder; this time the victim is a Hollywood music producer named Primo Ekerling.

    I really like this author, so mainly I enjoyed the book. Over all a little slow.
