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.

    "Excellent narration! "

    A little slower moving than book 1, Eragon, but still enjoyable and the narration only served to accentuate the story!

    "Pretty boring compared to the first book"

    While it has moments of greatest much of this book remains incredibly boring, though I've found it much more enjoyable in audio than in print.

    The performance is generally quite good, although Eragon's voice sounds almost identical to Roran's, a and the dragons are nearly indistinguishable as well.

    "Almost Perfect"

    The only gripe I have is that he doesn't get too into it, he doesn't feel as if he enjoys it very much. I still like his voice though. Love the book since it came out though.

    "Great Sequel"
    Any additional comments?

    Eldest: The Inheritance Cycle Book 2 picks up right where the first book in the series, Eragon, left off. We found the Audible version to be an exciting listen. There were a few too many battles and too little romance for my taste, but my husband loved it. It’s definitely a good story. Paolini seems to be developing as a writer. We liked it enough to immediately go on to Book 3, Brisingr. Definitely a good listen!

    "Good book"

    I love this book and the narrator was good but I though his voices were off a little. Especially Saphira's because she is supposed to be a girl and he does his voice really deep.

    "Better than Book 1"

    You wouldn't even be thinking of reading this if you hadn't enjoyed Eragon, so I won't go on about how that book borrows so heavily from other books in the genre. I will just say that I particularly like this installment of the series in which Eragon goes to the elves for training and Rorin becomes a major character.
