Summary

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 chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

DO NOT BUY!!!!! THIS IS ABRIDGED

Very disappointed, nothing was said until you start to listen and realize that huge portions are missed from the book. Look for the narrator Gerrard Doyle much better and the unabridged version. It is under 1/3 of the book, if I could get my credit back I would in a heart beat.

Good story

Good story but with a change of narrator just ruins it. Should of kept with the original guy, he captured the characters character perfectly.

Great story but abridged version.

I love the inheritance cycle stories but got to the end and realised bits were missing. Turns out this version is abridged and only a 3rd of the story which is a shame as Kerry shale does some good work here. returned this one for the full version.

Abridged Version- be aware

Audible have neglected the fact that this is the Abridged version, so about 20 hours short of content.

Good but very abridged.

This was a abr8dged version of the book. I personally recommend the other audio book of this book which is over 3 times the length. But if you want a shorter version, this is better.

Brilliant!

Would you consider the audio edition of Inheritance to be better than the print version?

Yes! I read two of the books in the Inheritance Cycle and listened to two. Although I never thought I'd say it, I preferred the audio book!

What about Kerry Shale’s performance did you like?

The accents, they gave each character an individual voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, my daughters and I drew it out over a week, preferring to savor it to the very end. We already miss Eragon and Saphira!

Any additional comments?

Well read, excellent quality and the story is unforgettable!
