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 first half drags on a bit but the end is good"

    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

    "Very Good! πŸ‘"

    Very well written. Few slow points, but enough action you can listen to the audio and not fall asleep during the slow parts. Love the twist at the end.

    "Many Similarities. .."

    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.

    "Wow wow wow"

    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.

    ""Keeps you on your toes""

    These books are always full of twists. The narrator's voice keeps to drawed in the whole time. If like drawves, elves & dragons, than this comes highly recommended.

    "The rebellion begins"

    The rebellion begins, Dragon joins the elves for his training, Roran becomes Stronghammer and Murtagh returns. Eldest is pure brilliance.
