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 have loved this series from book one. I know that there are critics out there who would pick apart Christopher Paolini's writing style but I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every letter of every word of this series. I appreciate that in this last book, he effectively addressed all of the important questions that came up through the series. The book could have easily ended 100 pages earlier like so many other fantasy series with a quick little "and they lived happily ever after" but the author spent the time to close all of the loose ends. I highly recommend this book.
We adopt senior dogs and care for them throughout their end-of-life needs. Seniors are the best! Their unconditional love and loyalty is unmatched.
I've loved all the Inheritance novels. Gerard Doyle has been the greatest narrator ever. (I especially loved Saphira's voice.) I was tearful at the end of this book, but not without hope. A fine first four books for such a young author and I have to say this last one is my favorite. Thanks, Christopher, for the wonderful journey.
Christopher Paolini did it again...this was an action packed book that leaves not stone unturned...
Listening to audio books is my way of dealing with my hour long commute to work. Traffic! Yuck!
I like the end but I would have like more about the charters that where in the book. It also seemed a little rushed to complete the story in so few pages. It should have been lengthened to a fifth book.
