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 an absolute awesome conclusion to an incredible series. Narrated by Gerard Doyle, the story takes us all the way Galbatorix's castle where Eragon, Saphira, Fantastic, Shruikan, Murtagh and Thorn have an incredible confrontation which will leave the world of Alagaesia spellbound.
Steal my life, steal my love, and my voice will still not be silenced..
So much has happened since Palancar valley..I wish it turned out differently. It ended though.
I felt like the narration exacerbated some of the over the top dialogue. Reading the novels it is easy to lose yourself in the emotion of the events and understand the anger and desperation. Somehow, hearing it read aloud just makes it seem absurd and took me out of the story.
It has been years since I read Brsinger and I was able to remember and fall I to the story within the first few chapters. The book is addicting and the ending is one I would agree with.
I recommend this and every book in the Inheritance Cycle. The writing maybe a bit drawn out, but the stories are engaging, the characters memorable and the world building amazing. It's a story that draws you in and the conclusion is satisfying, but also leave you feeling like you want more.
The growth of the characters seemed to reach their logical conclusion. Each person arch ended in just the way it should given their trials throughout the books and it was amazing to see an out of the box solution to defeating the major villains of the series.
He indeed brought the book to life, it was a very easy to get lost in his methodical and often times rhythmic voice. Every character got a bit of personality and his voice acting never wavered throughout the book.
*Spoiler* The death of the Queen of the Elves, Islanzadí was particularly painful and saddening. She was a strong character whose death moved me.
This is one of the best series I've ever read/listened too. I recommend it to any and all audible users, not just fans of fantasy.
