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.
First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too.
The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength - as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices - choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.
Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

Mystery, who done it, medical, good YA, I'm in. light romance too. Bring on the gore but leave out the explicit love scenes please.
Brisingr was just as wonderful as the first two books in the series. While this was supposed to be the third and final book, I was greatly surprised to find out my enjoyment would continue to book number 4. Thanks Chris!! I really enjoy the characters, languages,and story line.
If you like the first two books you'll love this one as well! It's a little dull at parts but explains a lot and I think sets up the fourth book for nonstop action. There were a lot of unanswered questions and book three really dives into them which in my opinion, makes the prospect of book four the best yet!! I'm only sad I have to wait for the last book!! My 9 year old son also LOVES them as well, so they're great for kids who wouldn't get all the weird words we couldn't begin to pronounce! Great book!
Eragon,Eldest if you have'nt listened to them download them with this book and be happy!!!!worth the time and the credits. Good for the whole family.
I've been eagerly awaiting Brisingr ever since I finished Eldest (almost a year ago). So when it got closer to the release date I started getting scared that that I would be disappointed somehow because of how much I had hyped up myself. Paolini Far from disappoints in this book. His writing keeps getting better and better and this is the best book so far. And Gerard Doyle is one of the best readers in the business. I can always tell which character is talking, male or female; which is difficult to pull off for a lot of readers I've heard.
*If you haven't picked up this series then you're depriving yourself! But start at the begining with "Eragon" for the full effect.
i was excited after reading Eldest, but i felt the story just dragged on. I was just sick of it by the end. If the next book is like this one i won't be making the purchase
I loved the first two books, Eragon and Eldest, but Brisingr is my favorite so far. So many twists and turns. It made me laugh out loud and cry. I loved this book. My only regret is now I'll have to wait for the last one to come out to see how it all ends.
Granted, there is a lot more detail and not as much action in this book, but it makes it perfect for expanding upon the world that Paolini has created. You learn about the politics and the emotional struggles that Eragon is facing. I found this to be the perfect segue between Eldest and the 4th book as it helps to explain so much. For everyone who has said that this book is slow, they are unwilling to relax and simply enjoy the breathtaking detail that Paolini has inserted into the land. I can't wait for book 4 to finish up the story!
I am a huge fan of this series and loved this book. Like the others it is beautifully paced and full of imagination. I did not realize until the end that it was not the end of the series. So I anxiously now await more to come.
