    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    An epic journey

    As I've read the Eragon book a couple of years ago I thought that it would be fun to re- listen to it as I travel a lot. Just as I remember it, althou..Show More »

    Why split the book into two?

    Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors, Eragon and Saphira narrowly escaped with their lives. But more awaits the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep, including his oath to cousin Roran to help rescue his beloved Katrina. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes, Eragon must make choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

    the best book ever read (after the 1 and 2)

    It was brilliant you just want him to continue writing and to think that he wrote the first book when he was 16 it's incredible. If you've read or see..Show More »

    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.

    BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ!!!!!!!!

    This was the best book ever and I loved how it was so long it almost didn't end!!!!
