Brisingr by Christopher Paolini


Oaths sworn . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.

It's been only months since Eragon first uttered "brisingr," the ancient language term for fire. Since then, he's not only learned to create magic with words-he's been challenged to his very core. Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon's oath to his cousin, Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength-as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices-choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?


So I am currently reading the fourth one because this one was so good I just couldn't wait to do the blog first and then start the fourth book. It was a good book but I thought it was a little repetative with all the stuff they were saying. I was sad when I found out theat Oromis died though and I'm only typing that in here because if you don't know about Oromis then you havn't read the books really and shouldn't be looking at the third book review if you havn't read the second book. Just a tip I'm bad at putting up spoiler alerts before I write them down so just get used to it. Anyways yeah obviously there is a lot of information when you read this one that you need to know before you read the fourth one but all the other stuff is kinda repetative. all in all this book is essential to read when you read the series but one of my favorites int he series.

Eldest by Christopher Paolini


Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle–one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . .


I love this book!!! OMG and the thing they tell you at the end of the book!? ahhhh. Of course, I'm not gonna tell you what that thing they tell you at the end of the book is because that would ruin it but OMG...... anyways, while reading this book I realized that there is NO WAY they are going to make the rest of the Eragon series into movies. That is unless they remake the first one. They left so much important stuff out of the first movie that the second movie wouldn't make sense at all. I like the connection between Eragon and Saphira in this one. They are connected like one mind instead of two, it's really cool how they describe it. I also like how they brought Roran and the rest of Carvahall into this book. It really brings a depth into the book that you don't see in a lot of other books. Cant wait to read the next one, that's all I gotta say. and again "the thing they tell you at the end of the book!!!!! That's so weird" and I hate that one guy that I'm not gonna tell you the name of cause that would also ruin it......Just read the darn book for yourslf! Jeesh lol!

Eragon by Christopher Paolini


Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy—until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.


I put off reading this for a long time because I saw the movie. To me the movie was....terrible. I hated it. There wasn't much to like because the whole story was missing. Without reading the book I could tell that the movie left a lot of stuff that was in the books out. So my aunt read this book just a little while before I did and was telling me how good the book was. My first opinion of the book before I read this book was not good. But as I read from cover to cover I got ingrained with the story of the dragons (not the cute barely ferocious dragons but the actually scary and intelligent dragons from the book)and the rider. I learned the history of the riders and all of the other stuff I'm not gonna tell you because I don't want to give anything away. I learned Brom's story as they introduced charectors that wern't even in the movie...I was awestruck by just how AWESOME this whole world is. It's amazing, it truely is. I would recomend this book to anyone.
