Publisher's Summary

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors, Eragon and Saphira narrowly escaped with their lives. But more awaits the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep, including his oath to cousin Roran to help rescue his beloved Katrina. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes, Eragon must make choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death await listeners as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist him to his own purposes. Can he become a leader who can unite the rebel forces and defeat the King?

the best book ever read (after the 1 and 2)

It was brilliant you just want him to continue writing and to think that he wrote the first book when he was 16 it's incredible. If you've read or seen lord of the rings eragon is about the same but with more magic in the story and bit less wars.

Good attempt

As with the others, the reader is treated as a little simple, and all the dragons sound like Daleks. Love the way the more slow characters have West Country accents...

Possibly a lot of filler here

I like Paolini's books. They tick a lot of boxes for the type of fantasy writing that I enjoy. However, like many middle books, this felt like filler.

Lets face it, Eragon is annoying. His dragon seems impetuous and they get themselves needlessly into a lot of trouble. There seemed to be a lot of it in this book, so much so that I can't remember the plot 4 weeks after having listened to it

Narration was at best OK - voice of Murtag is irritating

Relistened to this before the final book. Had to be done but was a bit of a struggle
