Publisher's Summary

Oaths sworn...loyalties tested...forces collide.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too.

The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength - as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices - choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

    "I enjoyed this more than the last book."

    The performance was very good as always. I was relieved that the elves home was limited compared to Eldest as I found it dreadfully boring. The developments with the characters both main and supporting (especially Roran) were very entertaining as well. I can't wait for the next book!

    "chapters? "

    Wish the chapters were better, instead splitting up one hour average chapters they could have split it up so that you heard from specific characters. or between settings.

    "As good as the first time I read it"

    This story is so well written and entertaining that I couldn't put it down! Love, love, love this story! I'm not a huge fantasy fan, but I get into the occasional magic/dragon deal. That being said, this series is AMAZING. Best series I've ever read.

    Story
    "A different but necessary portion of the story."
    If you could sum up Brisingr in three words, what would they be?

    Tedious. Revealing. Necessary.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really enjoyed hearing from and learning more about Roran in this novel.


    Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favorite?

    There was one particular conversation in which Nasuada and Arya were both speaking with Eragon. They are both young, female characters, but Gerard Doyle was able to distinguish them very well and show both of their sense of character through their voices. It was really wonderful.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "So many promises to keep, and yet he just keeps making more."

    "Just Keeps Getting Better and Better"

    Seriously, a great book series. Ignore the detractors and critics that compare the story to others. It is amazing in its own right.

    "An extremely entertaining book AND reading performance"

    I have NEVER read this long of a book (or listened to one), but I had been told by ALL of my family that I HAD to read this series. I'm already 3/4 of the way through, and I'm already thinking of
    how much I'm going to MISS the story.

    Again, READ IT!.

    Also, the reading performance by Gerard Doyle is absolutely fantastic. He brings the story to life!

    Thanks for this...

    JB
