Publisher's Summary

Darkness falls...despair abounds...evil reigns....

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. Before long, Eragon doesn't know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle, one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life.

    "ABSOLUTELY THE GREATEST"

    The story is without a doubt, one of the best I've ever been exposed to. It is simple to follow, yet full of enough adventure to thrill any reader.
    If the book doesn't keep your attention, the reader, Mr Doyle will keep you interested. His voice inflections, various voices, etc are the very best I've heard since becoming an Audible member.
    Everyone with the remotest interest needs to download/ buy this book!

    "The female dragon's voice has a sex change"

    I really enjoyed the Eragon audio book and was looking forward to Eldest.

    The Eragon plot was good and the voices suited the characters including a female voice for the female dragon. In Eldest the same female dragon now has a rough male voice which ruined the audio book for me.

    Eldest has an extremely complex plot and seemed to go on and on and on and on. My daughter enjoyed it but I could not finish it.

    In summary Eragon was like the Hobbit, readable, concise with great character development. Eldest is more like the second book of the Lord of the Rings and I just lost patience with it.

    "There's no arguing that this is an amazing book"

    Spoiler alert!
    Please don't read if you don't want to know what's going to happen .
    I think my favorite parts of the book was when Rorin made his speech to save everyone in Carver Hall.
    My second favorite part is when Eragon gets healed and he dual Venna the elf with ease , how many wins he simply says, " dead "
    ( Eragon drops the mic)

    The one thing that I just kept shaking my head at was the fact that Eragon was going to waste that rabbit meat.
    He went from the top of the food chain to the bottom when he became a vegetarian. I would have no respect for him anymore LOL

    Everyday thousands of innocent plants are being killed everyday help end the violence

    "Eldest"

    Excellent book! My only gripe is that I don't have enough credits, currently, to grab the next two.
