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.
