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!
