    Not so very long ago, Eragon-Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider,l was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now, the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix.

    What made the experience of listening to Inheritance: The Inheritance Cycle, Book Four, Part One the most enjoyable?

    The story is incredibly captivating, moving, exciting and exilerating. The plot is incredibly well thought out and planned so that every part of the story starting from Eragon (Book 1 Inheritance cycle) up to the last one makes perfect sense and keeps on flowing into each other.


    What other book might you compare Inheritance: The Inheritance Cycle, Book Four, Part One to and why?

    I cannot compare the Inheritance work to any other fantasy work, because it is so much better than anything else that I have read. Christopher Paolini has re-defined the magic fantasy category, and lifte the bar WAY high.

    Game of Thrones meets Ancient Egypt in this magnificent, action-packed epic. On the gleaming banks of the Nile, the brilliant Taita - slave and advisor to the Pharaoh - finds himself at the center of a vortex of passion, intrigue, and danger. His quest to destroy the Hyksos army and form an alliance with Crete takes him on an epic journey up the Nile, through Arabia and the magical city of Babylon, and across the open seas.

    I longed for another true epic tale, like Smith's earlier titles, but was left wanting. A nice story. But it could have been so much more.
