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.

An epic!

Gerald Doyle brings to life a great epic rivaling that of The Lord of the Rings. Every character is graced with a voice, temperament, and identify of their own, immersing us into the very heart of the story. Well done indeed.

Good Writing, No Progress

Finishing the book it seems that nothing of importance has happened. The author has a great writing style, but not the best story sense.
