“It's a great adventure story with tons of detail and adventures all wrapped up in a quest for a boy and his dragon to come of age to overthrow the evil king...
Oaths sworn . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.
It's been only months since Eragon first uttered "brisingr," the ancient language term for fire. Since then, he's not only learned to create magic with words-he's been challenged to his very core. Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.
First is Eragon's oath to his cousin, Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength-as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices-choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.
Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?
This book continues the story of Eragon the dragon rider and his dragon Saphira. Eragon, Saphira, the Varden and the Elves are preparing to fight against Galbatorix. The book delves more deeply into Eragons emotions and feelings about other people, like Arya the elf and Sloan (Eragons cousins wifes father) and the cause he is fighting for: rebellion against Galbatorix. Eragon is constantly forced to choose between what he thinks is right and what other think is right, and I think Christopher Paolini did well at showing Eragons point of view and personality, especially when he is conflicted in choices, by using good descriptors and making Eragons and Saphiras personalities clear.”
