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 Alagas͡ia? And if so, at what cost? This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

If Roran had a dragon and magical powers he would be SOOOOO much better than Eragon. Angila is the best.

This book is a complete masterpiece! A wonderful fantasy read if you like dragons, amazing battles, and a little romance.

The ending to the Inheritance Cycle, and a true must read.

You can see how much Eragon has changed since the first book, more confident, strong, wiser, and more mature. It is very deep, and has a twist that might be obvious, but is also surprising. The ending chapters were not as active as the rest of the book, but being the end of the series, it's understandable that it would be slower paced. Still a magnificent book and series. The ending is so sad. I almost cry just thinking about it.

I dearly want Christopher Paolini to write another book including Eragon, Saphira, Arya, and Firnen, even if they are only secondary characters. Like teachers. And of course Angela would be there.

It is a beautiful series, and the world of Alagaesia needs to be explored more, it is too magnificent to be forgotten.

I did find some misspellings and grammar errors, but it is an 849 page book, what can you expect?

Atra du evarinya ono varda.

Loved the whole series and the ending just left me in a pit of despair.

This was by far the best book. The long, repetitive battles of its predecessor are gone, and the fighting pays better attention to inner thoughts and emotions. Although I guessed what was in the Vault of Souls in the middle of Brisingr, it still was a nice twist. I really started to like most of the characters, and I gained a much better understanding of Nasuada. The climax seemed a bit forced, though, and it didn't seem likely that Eragon could have cast that spell so easily. It seemed like too easy a way out. Also, it never really seemed like Saphira and Firnen got to know each other that much before falling in love, and Firnen was still pretty young. Although they're dragons, so I suppose it works differently for them. I liked that it was realistic in the sense that not all their troubles were over after defeating Galbatorix, and that everyone didn't yield to Nasuada easily. Those things would happen were this to be a real political situation. I also really liked that the Urgals became so developed. In the first and most of the second book, they were just portrayed as brutish monsters, but now I can see that they have a whole culture and moral values. No society is pure evil, so I thought that this was very good for the story. Overall, great book!

Characters: 8/10
Plot: 8/10
Writing: 10/10
Although Inheritance was even longer than the other books in the series, it was better-paced so that it didn't lag as much as, I felt, the middle two did at times. A LOT happened, and it really kept me turning pages. There were a lot of surprises that kept me emotionally engaged, and the PoV shifts were both effective and infuriating.
The ending affected me very strongly. I cried because I was so shocked by some of the resolutions, and at the end I was overwhelmed by the complexity of emotions Eragon presented. I could not even close the book for a full five minutes after I finished.

In the end of the book, I nearly cried! Christopher Paolini wove feelings into me from the other three books. The sad end used those feelings to almost make me cry.

Before he could suggest a new topic, a loud scream rang out from some where in the middle of the camp. The cry echoed three times over the rows of tents before fading into silence.
Eragon looked at Angela, and she at him, and they both began to laugh.

Violence: Okay, well, it can be a bit gory of some sort. It doesn't really bother me, but to others it may.
