Publisher's Summary

Darkness falls... Despair abounds... Evil reigns...

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 Ellesméra, land of the elves, for further training in magic and swordsmanship, the vital skills of the Dragon Rider. It is the journey of a lifetime, filled with awe-inspiring new places and people, each day a fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and Eragon isn't sure whom he can trust. Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle back home in Carvahall, one that puts Eragon in even graver danger. Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life .

    "OK"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    the narrator was horrible, accents terrible, and overall poor performance.
    Should never use an american accent for the audio book, it makes it feel cheap.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    plot was OK

    "The legend continues"

    I reviewed Eragon back in 2006 as Sanlan37 and looked forward to the next part of the story. A friend of mine had the Gerald Doyle version on cd but I prefer the narration of Kerry Shale after getting used to his character voices in Eragon so I downloaded the audio book from here instead. I was not dissapointed . You get a follow on from where the last book ended, and the story is progressed in such a way that it's possible to see a third book on the horizon without compromising the end of this story. A talented new writer without a doubt.

    "Epic tale"
    What did you like most about Eldest?

    The story stayed true and solid to the first book and slowly introduced you to new concepts and ideas that fitted the storyline.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love orrik and all the dwarves, they are amusing


    What does Kerry Shale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His storyteller tone and accents were incredible. The different accents help differentiate between characters upbringing and geography

    Story
    "Voices changes from previous book and bits missing"

    The voices have changed a lot like orick the dwarf goes from deep and powerful to like he has taken a load of helium . And bits was removed like the puzzle he was given by the dwarfs and the religious customs of the dwarfs ie how ereagon is now considered a dwarf that he must ensure that if a fellow dwarf dies that he makes sure he is returned to the catacombs or buried in stone ... All this and more was removed which explained a lot in the later books

    "Eldest just a fantastic listen"

    When I first heard about the inheritance cycle I thought it would be a set of book designed for kids but I was completely wrong, if I hadn't have found it then I don't what I would have done for the last few months, Christopher Paolini has a great style of writing which reaches all ages.
