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 Ellesm ra, land of the elves, for further training in magic and swordsmanship, the vital skills of the Dragon Rider. It is the journey of a lifetime, filled with awe-inspiring new places and people, each day a fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and Eragon isn't sure whom he can trust. Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle back home in Carvahall - one that puts Eragon in even graver danger. Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life.
Christopher Paolini has done it again! He invents a whole new world, and describes it beautifully - its so original, not your usual damsel in distress fairy tale. Yes, its got the gore, but its not all fairies and butterflies with an evil king out there, is it?
Slowly, Eragon's questions are getting answered, but there is still a lot uncovered. Who was his father? And where is Murtagh, his companion, who as been abducted by Urgals? And how should he react to the fact that Murtagh is the son of Morzan, the first of the Forsworn?
With an epic battle under his belt, Eragon becomes more confident with his magic. He is sent to Ellesmera, the beautiful elvish city, to further his studies as a Dragon Rider. Eragon and Saphira, his dragon, are shocked to discover - they are not alone!
Eldest is the second book of a four book series called Inheritance. The main character is called Eragon. In the first book Eragon finds a dragon egg which hatches and he becomes a dragon rider. The enemy in this book is the evil Galbatorix. Galbatorix destroyed the riders and announced himself king of Alagaesia. In book two of Inheritance Eragon must continue his training so he can defeat Galbatorix.
OMGoodness, you HAVE to read this book, no make that the whole SERIES because they are absolutely AWESOME (i LOVE dragons)
Eldest hurtles through a series of events to keep the reader interested. With each chapter, it may or may not change perspective between Eragon and Roran, providing a more wide-spread view of what is going on in this strange world. A lot of things happen in Eldest, and I think I may prefer Eragon, but a basic rundown of what happens is that...
Murtagh is kidnapped, Ajihad killed, Eragon goes to a dwarf city and accidentally makes a blood fued with another clan because he is now a part of Hrothgar's clan, Eragon goes to the elves, Eragon meets another rider who happens to be an elf, Eragon gets trained, blah blah blah, Murtagh reappears as having been put under Galbatorix's control, while also hatching himself a dragon, who appears on the front cover of the novel. Eragon and Murtagh face off and they also find out they are brothers. Murtagh ends up going and thats about all, besides from the fact that meanwhile, Roran has led the entire village of Carvahall away from the Ra-Zak into the outskirts of the town, Teirm. There they meet an old aquaintance of Eragon, snag themselves a boat and ride themselves straight into the middle of Eragon's war.
I listened to Eldest on audiobook, and wasn't all that engaged, but overall it was good and gripping and still seems to remind me of the Lord of the Rings. Christopher Paolini is a talented author with a great skill for gripping plots. A thorugh page-turner that will keep fans of Eragon proud, Eldest is a fantasy lover's... fantasy.
a young man named Eragon and his dragon Saphira travel to Ellesmara to learn magic from the elves for their quest to save the Varden from the destruction from King Galbatorix while all this is happening Eragon's cousin Roran is having the same amount of troubles as he is.
all the surprises you will never expect them they just pop out any were and also it is about two people so they leave you hanging at every paragraph.
Eragon, The Vampire Diaries and any other fantasy.
anywhere I read it on the bus and the tram.
a mixture of things depending on each paragraph.
Eragon and his dragon.
It's cool and thrilling.
Eragon because Eldest is the sequel to it.
