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.

I truly enjoyed that most questions I had were answered by the end of the tale... Yet I can see enough left untold to lead to another story with another thread, not just of Eragon, but as a side story of other characters. Enjoyable.
I like a lot of different books, but I'm a sucker for a good love story.
I was surprised at the fresh twists in this story. A very different "boy and his dragon" story. Some question still linger which I don't particularly like. Like what was the price paid for the bright steel. Also the romantic in me was immensely unsatisfied by the ending. Left me wanting more.
Entertaining story with well conceived and crafted characters. Lovingly concluded with room for many further stories down the road. I look forward to more by the young Mr. Paolini
Awesome Sad and Long
All of it except the ending.
Orik's voice, I cringed every time I heard it.
I liked the entire story but I really didn't like the way it ended. Definitely no happy endings there. Not even a possibility of hope for a happy ending really. I would have loved to find out the story of Angela. That was left hanging for me. I would still recommend it.
The intricacies of humanity reflected in a continually evolving, emotionally realistic, fantastical story line. The four books worth every one of the hundred and 20-ish hours I have invested in listening.
