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. ( )

its an ok ending to a geat series. I didn't like the way Eragon went off at the end, and didn't feel the ending was very well worded. Rather a let down and very familiar to Lord of the Rings Return of the King ending of the movie. Also I found the wording rather strange for the battles and the battles having way to much wording.

I have given all of this series 5 stars except the final one. I was just expecting an ending that was a little more spectacular and little less deus ex machina. ( )

Really good end to a really good series. The final battle was not prototypical and refreshing in its honesty to the characters. The ending was reminiscent of another famous series, but not so much so that it appears a copycat. ( )

Not my favorite book of the series but wrapped everything up nicely. ( )

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.
