Book Summary

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. . . .

    By Zombunny 917
    I love this series and completely recommend
  • Beautiful

    By LuisAOquendo
    This book tells a very well a woven story and I absolutely loved it. Chris's writing really lets your imagination go wild (and make you want to punch whoever made the Eragon movie) It is a must for fans of adventure. I recommend you read Eragon before for the best experience
  • Cool

    By Siddiodugyrdesjid
    I was sad when Brom died in the first one but I simply loved the second one! Even when Brom died it was still a very great book! I recommend this book for readers 3rd grade and up.

  • #1series

    By Andrew Godfrey
    This book is part of the best series I have ever read. If you are even reading this review and looking about this book, think no more and read it. It brings you on one of the best adventures ever made, and leaves you with some withdrawal once you have finished the series.

    I couldn't tell you how many times I've read this book and as many times I've read Eldest, it has never gotten old. Hail Eragon Shadeslayer and Saphira Brightscales!
