Summary

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.

Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death await listeners as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist him to his own purposes. Can he become a leader who can unite the rebel forces and defeat the King?

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 seen lord of the rings eragon is about the same but with more magic in the story and bit less wars.

Good attempt

As with the others, the reader is treated as a little simple, and all the dragons sound like Daleks. Love the way the more slow characters have West Country accents...

A childhood gem with great performance

The Inheritance cycle was one of my absolute favourites as a teen and one that I will never forget. it impacted me deeply to the extant that I even started vaguely incorporating the Ancient Language in my everyday life (I'm so cool, I know!). ThiS production does an excellent job at capturing the magic of it, the pacing is brilliant and the characterisation is spot on. At first I did find the dragon voices a little jarring but the reasoning behind it makes so much sense and now it just seems to fit. Thank you!

Most brilliant book I’ve ever listened two

It made me want to keep listening it because it’s really interesting. And when I finished it I begged my parents to get me the next book and I’m still now listening to Inheritance book 4

Saphiras voice? really?

not fond of the narrator. Saphira is meant to be graceful, feminine and wise. narrator make her sound like a fat man with a cold.

Fantastic - cannot wait for Inheritance!

Really struggle with critiques of Paolini and the Inheritance Cycle. To say the story is generic is utterly ridiculous. Of course, like every other bit of fantasy fiction - it takes inspiration from the likes of the Lord of the Rings, but Paolini and Gerrard Doyle have an uncanny way of making you feel as if you're on Eragon and Sapphira's journey.

Love it!!!

I am genuinely loving the the series. I love the way that the story is evolving and how the characters are coming to life in their own ways and in their own situations.

3 down 1 to go
