I'm sorry to see this series end. My son and I have listened to all four books together and enjoyed each one. ( )

Ugh, hallelujah, I'm done with this crap. The final battle was completely lackluster and the ending made the end of The Return of the King look abrupt - it just dragged on long past the audience losing interest. ( )

An interesting story ( )

I have loved this series and all of the characters from the first book. In a way I'm very happy with the ending but at the same time there are aspects that were soooo disappointing as they didn't not get resolved. Which is why this book only gets 4 stars. In all honesty much of the ending of this book was absolutely heart wrenching. I do look forward to Mr. Paolini continuing with the world he has built but I do hope he will mention some of my favorite characters from this series when he does! ( )

By far the best book in the inheritance cycle. The action is epic and the story is so engaging. It expands on the events of book three. Because some parts of this book were supposed to be part of the pervious one, the flow of the story from book three to four is much faster and consistent than the transitions from book one to two and book two to three. Many of the characters get some much needed time to shine that really expands on who they are and makes them seem even more awesome than they already are. My favorite character to get some action time is Angela who is still very much secretive but is fleshed out quite a bit. The werecats make an interesting appearance and are awesome creatures to have in the story. The urgals become even more deserving of empathy as they move farther away from the stereotype that the people of the empire attribute to them. The story takes many unexpected turns all the way until the very end. The end is one of the saddest endings I have ever read, but it is nice to see an ending that is not similar to the stereotypical fantasy stories in the past. The first book may have followed traditional plot lines, but in this last book, the author truly takes it upon himself to create his own unique story that surpasses any of the other books. ( )

Book description
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 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 much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.
