Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

The final installment of the Eragon series has finally arrived. Eragon was first released in 2003, with the fourth and final book, Inheritance, released this past November. I have finally gotten around to reading this book this past week. I am about halfway through and hooked. All seems lost for Saphira and Eragon - I can't wait to see where it leads. It always amazes me how authors can create entire worlds, languages and intricate histories for their books. This appears to be a long book, but you will quickly become wrapped up in the story.


It began with Eragon... It ends with Inheritance.

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 Alagaƫsia? And if so, at what cost?
