Publisher's Summary

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.

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?

    "Fantastic!"

    I've lost count of how many times I've read this series, I love the story-line. This the second time I've listened through it and definitely will not be the last! Gerard Doyle does a fantastic job reading it, I love his voice. Easy listen!

    "Should have read it"

    I read the first two, and when I tried listening to this one I couldn't help but notice that the voice of the dragon was narrated by a man who spends his spare time eating glass. The dragon voices are the most annoying, overplayed, obnoxious, embarrassingly ridiculous nonsense I've ever heard. Aside from that, it was great =)

    "Sloooow,"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Disappointing read, it seemed to lack direction, and cohesion. What little action that there was came as a refreshing counter point to the rest of the plodding story line. The voice of the dragon, Saphira was a bit childishly done and got more annoying as the book dragged on. Over all it was not as good as the last two books.

    "Yet another good one!"

    I know they consider it a kids book.......who cares! This is a good series for anyone who wants a different approach to the world of magic and dragons. The story of a boy striding to be the best he can be against unbearable odds.The flow of the novels is smooth from one to the next, a great read for kids and adults.

    "Not terrible, but not especially good."
    Any additional comments?

    The Inheritance cycle is a little too full of cliche for my liking. It's not a terrible story, but there are so many other fantasy stories that are so much better. The reader does a good job, though, and is the primary reason I made it through these books. I know the fourth one has come out, but I really doubt I'll be reading it.

    Nothing like someone reading you a story, then having a nap. What a life.

    Yes without a second thought. this was an excellant story. The narration by Gerard Doyle brought the story to life


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brisingr?

    The way the dragons are presented


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is nothing that beats a good story except maybe a nap. This being read beat the nap

    Where does Brisingr rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank books by the series. I'd have to put this series in my top ten.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Saphira the dragon. She is awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It got me excited. So glad there is finally a series where dragons are actually cool. Unlike anything from Anne McCaffrey.
