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?

    "Best one so far!"

    This book is definitely the best out of the three! It has more action and both roran and eragon have very entertaining story lines. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now it's on to the last.

    "Great Fantasy Escape!"

    Might not be perfect, but it is a lovely listen.
    The story is a classical epic fantasy, very detailed and full of moments that can resonate with one's heart. Beautiful descriptions enrich the text and Paolini surprises with many wise instances of introspection and a surprisingly healthy and balanced view of politics, death and life, and real love.
    Listening to Gerard Doyle is like listening to a beloved grandfather telling stories of old.
    Overall great experience, obviously must read following the first two books.

    "What a wonderful fantasy!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Brisingr to be better than the print version?

    I loved it. I could distinguish the different characters better than trying to pronounce the names in the book. I have shared my copies with many people and they too enjoyed them as much as I did. I even wrote to Mr. Paolini and asked him to write more like this. I could not stop listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dragons!! they should make these in to a movie. The one that was made was made poorly. they need to redo it. If done right it would be a hit like Harry Potter.


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The character changes. It was wonderful. Mr. Doyle you did a great job. thank you for sharing your voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh, yes. I like audios you feel as if you are watching it from the side lines.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Paolini write some more books like this and I will follow you everywhere you go. Thank you for such a great series of books.

    Story
    "Many Similarities. .."

    I do enjoy these books, but as an avid Tolkien fan I must say that there are many elements and even dialogue portions that are taken from The Lord of the Rings. I am somewhat disappointed by the obvious copying.

    Would you listen to Brisingr again? Why?

    This is the second time I have listened to the series, it is very well read so I find I a joy to listen to it while out and about. As the story unfolds before you, you feel like you are along side the characters in the plights as you are transported in to their world by Christopher Paolini's words

    "Faster please"

    You should listen to it at a faster speed than is set, Paolini writes a lot, some of which is a passing pleasure, and Doyle reads at a very slow pace, so you will get very bored very quickly.

    "Paolini- A Born Storyteller"
    Where does Brisingr rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high! I found the story to be so captivating!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Safera. Easily! You can't beat a dragon.


    Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    He is a very good narrator. Would recommend him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I would have yes, but it's obviously very long!

    "Another long and detailed book"

    Yet again I slogged through an Inheritance book, wishing I'd downloaded an abridged version. In places I just wanted to move the story along a bit faster. But overall still good, just be patient when listening to it.

    "Well spoken"

    Paolini has brought us a magical world, and Doyle has brought it to life. He has a good speaking voice and gives each of the characters individuality and strength however small their part.

    "Very good series"

    I read the first two books of the series 6 years ago and liked them, but since the series was not complete then and I don't like reading a volume every 2-3 years, when I no longer remember the details, I waited for the last two to be out and then started again with the first volume. I'm just about to finish the last one and... no matter how it will end, I already know I love this series and I will read it again several times in years to come.



    I love the way the dragons are portrayed, I love the world the author created, I wish I could visit and meet all the characters... Someone mentioned their child loved it. Well... I'm 35 and I loved it :) I would venture to say they are not for children, though. Teens, yes, but they are scenes of cruelty and torture and... that's not for children.



    These are serious books, very well written. Wisely written, I would say, since they really contain lots of wisdom, in nuggets and... spread throughout. Buy and enjoy, they are well worth your credits!
