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.

I love learning, teaching, and exploring!
I would listen again to catch up on details missed during the first listen.
I would have included more narrative from Saphira's perspective, or the other dragons for that matter. Her narrative is so different and intriguing.
This was my first time listening to Gerard Doyle. His performance was great and had many voices for the characters, although the dragon voices were not what I would have imagined.
No extreme reactions, just anxious to finish the cycle finally.
This story was well read and my children and I could listen to it together. It was a great family book. I highly recommend it for long car-rides with the kids. For us, we just listened to the entire Inheritance Cycle together after dinner. I knit and my 11 year old did a little homework (the simple stuff) and my 8 year old drew while we listened together. I found that at dinner we were eating quickly and excitedly talking about what would happen next. It was a fantastic family reading experience.
Yes, the story is broad and deep, very rich and well written.
He brings the charatcers to life.
I was overall dissappointed with the story it felt it was a little dragged out. no real twists I was anxious for it to be over but had to get to the end
if you are a fan then you have to finish the story but I wouldnt recommend it
Gerard Doyle was very good,
Paolini started these books as a kid and finished as an adult. There is real growth, both in the characters and in writing. Still, his style is plagued with
Yes, i like to go back for a different interpretation of events
That he covered all the bases, and those he did not he makes clear they will be for other books.
Rorin giveing it to King Orin
Chris did a great job. I think people are mad because their a bunch of winy babies who wanted thing to go the way THEY wanted, not the way that logicaly needed to happen. If an auther wrights just to please the readers and not to fulfill his storie then thats the real dissapointment. Chris did a great job and i love the ending. Some stories are not ment to go on forever, even if the charicters are.
The narrator: He is worse than ever before.
Also the the story completly failed to engage me in any way.
Im starting to think, the only reason I read the 3rd book was because I had just read the 1st and second. The characters have, after being fleshed out in great detail at first, steadily been reduced to one dimensional characters, that its impossible to relate to.
I was disappointed. The book was bad, the narrator was too and I should have listened to myself and not bought both parts of the book, when even the preview was unbearable to listen to.
The story was ok at best. The ending while interesting seemed very lack luster. I did however really enjoy the interview at the the end. I hope very much he will come back to the stories of Alagaesia and fill out the gaping holes he has left behind with this book. Narrator was great uses all the same voices for the same characters. Over all I don't believe this book is worth 2 credits and i should have waiting until the price can down a bit.
This was really well done and was I think the best of the cycle things got wrapped up nicely but let room for revisiting Alagasia later on.
