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.

This series continues to amaze me, even though it is my second time reading through it. I still find it to be enthralling and mesmerizing. Paolini did such an amazing job with his series!
Very pleased to enjoy these stories during my morning commute. Sometimes I sit an extra few minutes in the car to finish a chapter!
Have listened to this saga several times, very well done !!! I own all four books & would recommend them to anyone who likes great stories !
I really enjoyed this book but couldn't help but feel that Eragon was ever more becoming a brat. And all the whining... even in books is annoying. I still rate this a 4 because I sup think it to be above average but not amaziiiiiiing.
The writing is much better than in the first book and the characters are more nuanced. There was also a good pace and some original ideas.
I'm starting to forget that Gerard Doyle is voicing all of this characters! He's so good at it that it almost feels like multiple voice actors are working together to weave this magnificent tale!
Great story once again! I wish that added the meaning of each ancient language word used in the book some how to the story but I guess I can go back to the book and look.
