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 Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn't know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle, one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life.

    "The best of the inheritance cycle."

    Eldest shows the transformation of Era gonna becoming a true rider and a man. This is by far the best book of the four that make up the cycle. The voice of Gerard Doyle also goes so well will the story. I have finished this series 5 or 6 times, all 4 books, and it still doesn't get old while driving down the coast.

    "Plot"

    Great book, but it had a fairly obvious twist.
    The ending was satisfying & heart-warming.
    Character development was superb.

    "loved it"

    thoroughly enjoyed it. and the voice acting was well done. it did bother me, for some reason, that the dragon voices were depicted as deep and gravely despite coming from their minds...but still well done

    "A joyful story of overcoming!"

    Love this "quadrilgy" and look forward to my grandchildren bering old enough to listen. I do tell them a barebones story just to pique their interest. We add to it, they offering possible ideas for the storyline. As a teacher, I LOVE audiobooks, and recommend them to my students.

    "Exciting Continuation of the Story!"

    Listen to this book was far from a let down. The story filled me with emotions as if I was right along side Eragon himself.
