Rezkin is an elite warrior who aims to restore order in Ashai after Caydean's attack on the King's Tournament transformed former allies and trading partners into enemies. With no army and only a ragtag group of refugees, Rezkin must wrest control of the kingdom from the mad and powerful usurper, who seems bent on destruction, and this may not be the biggest challenge. If he fails, the kingdom will be ripped apart, and Rezkin will have violated Rule 1 - to protect and honor his friends.

I enjoy the series but this book felt like a misstep. no real character progression or even an enemy I'm the book except when one suddenly appears and is as quickly dispatched. the ending is abrupt and really left me feeling unfulfilled.

I've listened to the whole series. The first book is VERY hard to listen to because of the hard things that everyone goes through and the horrible attitude of most of the people. I didn't like the first book. But it put things in perspective for this day and age and I realized it's not so bad in our time. The others were great and they helped me continue to realize all that God wants/has/ and will do through me if I let him!!

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. 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.

The story was good but a little dry. The reader was dry and didn't have much fluxion in her voice and all of the characters sounded the same.
