Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Teens Category, 2013

Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

    "Inheritance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I didn't really like that the book ended with a depressing note. Eragon should have been left happy that they won the war and would be able to see his friends and family.

    "Fantastic!"

    I've lost count of how many times I've read this series, I love the story-line. This the second time I've listened through it and definitely will not be the last! Gerard Doyle does a fantastic job reading it, I love his voice. Easy listen!

    "Very entertaining book!"
    Where does Inheritance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I truly enjoyed this book.


    What other book might you compare Inheritance to and why?

    The Harry Potter Books. The performance of the reader was great.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Saphira and Eragon find out that they are more dragon eggs.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it did not make me cry or laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked and disliked the fact that the book did not have a "Hollywood" ending. It was not really a happy ending but it was a more "human" ending.

    "I want another one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inheritance to be better than the print version?

    I am not able to read at this time so the audio was such a gift


    What other book might you compare Inheritance to and why?

    Anne Mcaffrey's Pern series started a world of working dragons, Christopher Paolini's world opens up the old longings for harnessing the power of the feared with companionship and a quest.
    Heady stuff


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    I love Gerard Doyle's performance
    He became the voices of alagacia to me
    So glad there was no changes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and I cried


    Any additional comments?

    I want to know what it was like for Eragon to train the new riders, how they were found and chosen. Who the new dragons were
    I want another book

    "Great book, but..."

    Great book, but you'll think it should be over with 5-6 hours left. Listen to your instincts and save yourself some time. You're not missing anything important.

    "Difficult to finish"

    The characters have not developed since the first book. The situations are contrived. The plot thin and slogging. This is a most difficult book to complete. I enjoyed the earlier books but found this to be filled with meaningless tensions and cheerless results.

    I'm a male 22 year old who is searching for amazing books that match my library. I don't like too much "magic" or non-fiction books.

    "CAN'T STOP YOURSELF!"

    The Inheritance cycle was an amazing series! Every story got you more in-depth and more addicted! You can't stop yourself from turning the next page! I loved every moment of it! I found myself more interested in Eragon's cousin Roaron story more than Eragon's. You really do see a lot of action in this book! You almost never seem to get away from it. There is a lot less charter development, but when you are this far into a series then that's going to happen. This is an amazing story with an amazing narrator! Gerard Doyle is by far my favorite narrator that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I've listen to all of Christopher Paolini's books narrated by Gerard Doyle!

    "Nice ending to a great series"

    When this book first came out I read all of the reviews and actually listened to them, boy was that a mistake. I left the book on my wish list and figured it would stay there for the foreseeable future since the reviews had me scratching my head. I am so glad I did not remove it. As I write this review I think folks are going to read this and wonder just what is he on about or what makes him a worthwhile reviewer. To be honest I listen to books because I have Dyslexia and it is difficult for me to read for a long time, that and I lose myself in books. When I start the iPhone app (sorry for the plug) I do just that I lose myself in the stories and it is a great feeling. When I listened to this and the rest of the books I was transformed to Alagaësia. Funny thing was; I found myself thinking about the story when I wasn’t listening and thinking just how is Paolini going to play everything out.

    To take time to write a review is a big deal for me and to write one for this book was important especially because of the negative one’s I saw when the book first came out in 2011. The bottom line is that this book was well worth your time and I do feel if you have listened to the first three than you are going to see this is a great ending to this series. If you have not read the first three I would suggest investing in those books and enjoy the adventure that Eragon, Saphira and the rest will take you on. Alagaësia is a wonderful place to get lost in for a few hours at least.
