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.

Understandably the first half drags on due to eragons wound and his needed training but once that is completed his story and rorans story quickly pick up pace bringing us to an entertaining end of the book. Now it is on to the next book
Eragon and Saphria are going to rule the EMPIRE! This is a good series. Started reading it while waiting on the next installation of Game of THRONES..... WHICH IS TAKING WAY TO LONG IF I MAY SAY SO!!
I do enjoy these books, but as an avid Tolkien fan I must say that there are many elements and even dialogue portions that are taken from The Lord of the Rings. I am somewhat disappointed by the obvious copying.
Unexpected twist & turns even for an experience reader.
Most chapters are extremely shocking, some move a bit slow, but not slow enough to cause disinterest.
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
The rebellion begins, Dragon joins the elves for his training, Roran becomes Stronghammer and Murtagh returns. Eldest is pure brilliance.
