Part Two of the Fourth Book of the Inheritance Cycle - Inheritance, featuring an interview with the author and his editor at the end of the recording.
It began with Eragon.... It ends with Inheritance.
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 farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

Why is it necessary to repeat 12 minutes of the final part of the book? Did the audio engineer fall asleep?
I found the climax of the battle exciting and unpredictable, as it should be, and then enjoyed the long gentle wind down towards the end, even if it was marred by the 12 minute repeat.
The cynic in me says there will be a book 5, which will of course ruin the author's credibility but make him some more money. After all, I had to pay for this book twice when US listeners did not. Times are tough, even for teenage writers.

could not do a better ending has the ability to make more books if he choices to but i loved this conclusion and hope he writes more.
