Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Teens Category, 2013

Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

    "Very Sad"

    I waited for this book for over 3 years. If I had known he would have done such a rushed job I could have waited another year or two! Not at all what I was expecting!!

    "Unpredictable is not always the answer..."

    Very disappointed with the ending to this "cycle." It seemed as though the values of the people (Rider and Elves) changed for this book to have tragic ending.

    I know it's popular to have unpredictabilty in a story, but it almost seemed as though it was forced that way and the decisions made would not be logical to the person that made them.

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Really? Would Aria really have made he decision she did after the history of the Riders? The dragon she aquired needs formal training and so does Aria. Here's your dragon Aria, you can be the acception to rule that you need Rider training because you ae now the ruler of your people.

    Aria finally cares for Eragon, but she will give that up as well to be the ruler of her people with an untrained dragon at her side.

    I was really hoping that Glaida got Sephira pregnant during their last training session, which would have been logical being that they didn't remember about the remaining eggs. Okay, your race is about dead and you have the chance to increase the gene pool before you risk your life in battle, but you don't do it...why?

    Anyway, no point to go on. Didn't make sense. I'm over it!

    "The story fulls short"

    The story line does not follow the logical outcomes. It goes from being a fantasy story to a tragedy. The ending gives a feeling of no hope to change the future. Since his future was foretold and he was cursed by enemies. Paolini goes out of his way to write the ending that way. In doing so , he basically says there are no rider secrets, that his training was a waste of time, since the next rider doesn't have to have the training, He leaves an untrained young dragon in the hands of a rider that has not received the secrets of the riders and will never have that training.

    He never answered the question of who the woman and girl was who received his blessing that he made such a large point of in the earlier books. No idea who Angela really is. No knowledge who the high level spy's are.

    He tries to make an argument there is no higher beings , yet he believes the future is unchangeable and it is predetermined. Yet without a there being a higher level being; who determines what that future is?

    While the other books offered promise of hope and love , this one gives nothing but despair and emptiness with no hope of the future.

    Paolini showed his lack of maturity with the ending of this book.

    "Love the Inheritance Cycle!"

    This is such a great series, from start to finish. I read the books originally, but years later I have thoroughly enjoyed the audio performance! This recording was so well done!

    "Best Newest Fantasy Series"

    If you like fantasy you'll love this book. It takes traditional forms of magic and mythical creatures and makes them new and exciting. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good read, but obviously you'll need to listen to Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr first.

    "Lengthy and bad finish to a decent book"

    The Inheritance Cycle series started out strong but the farther along, the more plot device characters and coincidences happen to the point that I no longer cared what happened to most of the characters. This down side in itself is the worst thing that you can do as a writer because if people don't care for your characters they will most the time stop reading. I stuck it out though, but again was disappointed by the number of corners that the author had written himself into that made the ending painful to listen to.

    "loved it!"

    the audio had some hiccoughs from time to time but it was awesome! aA very fleshed out and compelling story which I look forward to reading lots more about at at some future date! I love all of the variety in characters and the depth of the decriptions of everything that fill out the vision created in my mind as the story rocks along! Thank you so much for sharing your vision and creativity with us readers! Blessings to you and your future creations that you are willing and able to share with us readers of the world!!

    "Spoilers"

    He said fourth and final but it isn't... was excited to hear an ending but it was instead left for multiple side stories and continuation stories as wel.
