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.

Excellent! Need I say more?

I absolutely loved the last and final book of the series! Gerard Doyle is one amazing reader and truly added even more excitement to this book. Some questions I still have remaining but overall, though it was sad and I wish for more happiness for all of the characters, I think it was a solid way to end the story.

Ok, not great not horrible.

It was hard to trudge through most of this book. While I could not wait to pull up audible during the first two books, this one felt like a chore I had to finish. I agree with other reviewers that the ending felt rushed. It's because the beginning was so over-detailed. I'm not sure why he chose a third of the book to tediously describe boring battles and then rushed through the last parts that held the most content. I also agree if this book had been combined with the third it would have been much better.

I didn't feel connected to any of the characters. I didn't feel their pain and triumph, I just observed them. Personally, I like to be pulled into the book like I'm a part of the story.

I felt there was some inconsistency in some of the voices in this book, but overall the narrator was great.

There were a few cool things that happened, but the end was sad and unsatisfying. In fact it almost felt like it was written to set up another book, even though it wasnt.

Overall, worthwhile finishing but probably will not read again. The ideas were fascinating but the story ended poorly and was not captivating in the end.

Beautiful story. I own all the books and have read them several times. I wanted something to listen to at work so I downloaded the audio books and the narrator does an amazing job!

A Must Read!

I was captivated through the entire series. The narrator is among the best in his class. The story is thorough, well-played, and full.

Extremely disappointing...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. This book is extremely redundant with unnecessary, excessive detail. The ending is also very very disappointing and fulfilling...

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing by Christopher Paolini at risk that all his stories end so dishearteningly...

Which scene was your favorite?

The final battle with King Galbatorix

Do you think Inheritance needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

yes... most of the story lines where just left in the wind... I think it would be interesting to see if Eragon and Arya ever meet again and how they rebuild the world and the dragon riders.

I love this series.

I could think of no better way to end this series. He tied up a lot of loose ends but left just enough to keep you wondering. :)

Its good but the end is a really big cliff hanger and it's sad I mean come.

You need to write another book that's good hey word good because some authors write a really good book and then write the worst book 2. I'm not saying that's you but it could be so please I love this book . 😫😩😂
