Book Description

Nov. 8 2011 The Inheritance Cycle (Book 4)
Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times bestselling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.


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.

Review

"If you're not already a Paolini fan, now is the time to rush out and buy the three previous books, as this is the final instalment of the epic story which began with Eragon." Book Time "Inheritance is the final book of the wildly popular "Inheritance Cycle" by wunderkind Christopher Paolini. In this thrilling conclusion, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, take the fate of their world into their own hands. The evil king, Galbatorix, must be defeated and justice returned to the realm, but can the young dragonrider handle the pressure? That remains to be seen." The Christian Science Monitor "Featuring spectacular artwork by John Jude Palencar, this book brings the bestselling Inheritance cycle to a breathtaking conclusion." Middlesbrough Evening Gazette "It is an extremely compelling and well written book, set in the magical land of Alagaesia, and is one of the best fantasy books I have read. Christopher Paolini is a great author who has been able to conjure up a fantastical yet believable world.This is just as brilliant as all the other books in the series and ends spectacularly, but not in the way I expected..." Guardian "The Dragon has landed! Paolini's conclusion to his popular saga for young adults has been eagerly anticipated and at 880 pages, it's a whopper! Can Eragon the Dragon Rider restore peace to Alagaesia?" -- Kate Lazenby Western Morning News --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars disapointed Dec 6 2011
Format:Hardcover
I like most, don't know what to say but for an ending to it all in that it is disapointing. There is to many unanswered questions, I hope he does continue the books and answer some things. The book is good but so much more was needed to end it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all Dec 5 2011
Format:Hardcover
I'll admit that after the drudgery ridden muckhole that was Brisingr I did not have high hopes for Inheritance. However, I wanted to see how the series ended so I picked it up and was pleasantly surprised. Paolini did not win me over quickly, however... Like Brisingr, the book is riddled with dead-end side plots that do little to nothing to advance the story. A perfect example is Eregon healing Horst's baby. This serves no purpose but to fill space and in an 850 page book this isn't needed. Paolini seems to suffer from literary diarrhea in that every inconsequential thought in his head comes out on the paper unbidden. The irony is that the things you really wish he expanded on he doesn't, but more on that later. Additionally ironic is the fact that the chapters starring Roran are some of the most entertaining, but argueably could have been greatly reduced. The fact that the book also takes over 100 pages to wind down after the climax is a little ridiculous. Despite Paolini's shortcomings, he has managed to pen a fitting end to his series. It is a good and satisfying climax, and the reader does feel a sense of completeness and closure when it comes to the main narrative. HOWEVER, I'm irritated by the fact that within all Paolini's loquacity he could not tell us who and what Angela is. He keeps it a mystery folks. I don't necessarily have a problem with mystery; Tolkien never explained who or what Tom Bombadil is, after all. However, Tolkien didn't spend four books dropping hints and strengthening the mystery of who he is either. If Paolini was attempting to leave Angela as a Bombadilesque mystery character he should have refrained from asking the question of, "who is she," so many times. Perhaps he intends to explore her origins in a future book, but who knows? Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Long Book Nov. 21 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imaginative story with a lot of word padding. The story line was good, but it kept getting off into inane details about situations not relevant to the storyline. I kept waiting for some steamy parts....never happened although the story pointed in that direction. The ending of the story was like a dying battery...no warning, just THE END, in the middle of nowhere. I was disappointed after struggling through the unimaginative parts. There were great parts to the story, but you had to pay by struggling through the boring parts.

It is easy to see where the story is ending. By far the worst of the series. IT's a shame to have waited for the moment it goes out and be deceived..
