    For generations the misty Shadowline has marked the boundary between the lands of men and the lost northern lands that are the lair of their inhuman enemies, the ageless Qar. But now that boundary line is moving outward, threatening to engulf the northernmost land in which humans still live - the kingdom of Southmarch.

    Laura says: "By Far, NOT Williams' Best"
    "Completely Incomprehensible"
    Overall

    I've been an Audible member since 2005 and have listened to over 120 books. Some good, some bad, but I finished all of them. This is the first time I've started a book I won't finish. I've listened to the first chapter twice and still kept scanning back on the second attempt. I finally gave up after chapter three. Maybe the story would be good if I could follow it. It's just not worth the aggravation of listening to each chapter over and over until it sinks in. Maybe it's just me, but I'll skip this one.

    My apology to the author, but I truly did find the whole thing confounding.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "And I thought Eragon was going to be a dragon"
    Overall

    This was a good book, a little obvious perhaps, but good. I enjoyed the energy of the reader almost as much as the way the author describes events. I can really only fault two things with the story. The first was the ease in which you can foresee nearly all major events and plot twists. Other than that, be prepared for the story to end abruptly into the void of the coming book two.
