Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

Anyone who searches for adventure and fantasy this series provides both. Yes sometimes it can seem a little slow but never tries you. Performance was amazing, the different voices really provided character and help better understand what they were feeling.

This was his best writing up to about mid point where the fantasm gets a little too far but you go with it anyway because it's Mr. Perry and you trust him. And then you get to the last chapter and it wound together far too neatly and without explanation. Bummer. But his worst is still something I would regard as a favorite.

The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard. Just an old photo and a few words on a small square of heavy stock, but when she saw it, she knew she was seeing her future. That was half a lifetime ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby’s past. Her husband, George, is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone.

The title is enough. I really cant say why it's not; but it just isn't my absolute favorite of all.
