Synopsis: 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 chance.
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 spellbinding conclusion to Christopher Paolini's worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.
Alright.... its review time!!!
Holy!!!!! I seriously can't live like this.... that ending... the tears... the sadness.... i completely forgot how much i love these books!! The feels i am experiencing right now, UGH!! I love the length of these books and after all 4 of them i feel like I i know the characters soooo well. The deep connection I feel with all of them is something that is really hard to find in books and is a sure sign of an amazing author! I love Christopher P's writing. It is soooooo magical! He is a very verbose and descriptive writer which I love because it makes the world and character building so much more believable and real. I also love all the different and unique names used for the characters and cities. It helps make the reader feel like you are in a completely new world and anything is possible. It also just makes makes the story much memorable and enjoyable (although pronunciation is a pain sometimes) Every time I picked up any of these books to read I was immediately sucked into the world and I had troubles getting out! Once you start these books you can not put them down!
** Do not read any farther if you have not read ALL FOUR of the books in this series. SPOILER ALERT **
The ending of this book seriously broke my heart. I am angry yet happy and then I'm crying and laughing and.... i do not know what to think! It is extremely sad that Eragon is leaving the empire and everyone in it. Especially right after Roran had his daughter. It kills me that he is leaving Arya and may never see her again. At the same time it is so wonderful that Eragon is gonna train the new generation of riders and that he is gonna rebuild the dragon race. I just don't understand how he can say that he is never gonna come back! Imagine how the people of the empire will respond to that! The saddest part though was the goodbyes. Eragon experienced everything with Nasuada, Arya, Orik, Orrin, Roran, etc etc and for him to leave them all behind... there is not a goodbye that could encompass all of the feelings that Eragon had towards each and every one of them. It breaks my heart.
At least Eragon has Saphira and vice versa. I absolutely love the bond between the riders and the dragons. To have someone understand you so intensely and deeply is just an endearing concept. I was soo happy when Arya become a rider because after losing her mother and all the battles. After all of her hardships, she now has someone who can understand her pain and help her through it. Not to mention Firnen and Saphira <3 Is it bad that I ship two dragons this hard? I love how Saphira got her wish for a mate even if she had to leave him.
I highly recommend these books to anyone who enjoys fantasy and a detailed story! WOW!! I will always remember these books and I am very happy that I decided to reread them! JUST WOW!
Happy reading nerds! Sound off in the comments with you opinions and perspective on this series! :)
