Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle–one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . .

Review:

this book took a while to get into but once I listened through that first initial push, I started to appreciate the book more. I feel like this one was more of a stop gap to get all the pieces to the right level for the next book. It is a lot of foreshadowing and training before the next book, however, the next book starts within the action. I really enjoyed the training Eragon received from the elves. I’m already onto the next book, although from what I can remember of my first read of Eldest It was very slow to get into. The next two books were great though from my recollection.

Also sorry about the missing post, I had a very long weekend and it slipped my mind.

as always, happy reading

  1. One of these books, I think the third one made me actually really puke. He was describing pieced knuckles. That is what these books remind me of now 🤣
