Description

It began with Eragon ...It ends with Inheritance. 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 farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost? Featuring spectacular artwork by cult artist John Jude Palencar, this stunning book brings the bestselling Inheritance cycle to a breathtaking conclusion.

About Christopher Paolini

Christopher Paolini's abiding love of fantasy inspired him to create the Inheritance cycle, which quickly became an internationally bestselling series. Christopher draws inspiration for the world of Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, from the natural beauty that surrounds his home in Montana: the tulumturous weather, the roaring Yellowstone river, and the soaring Beartooth Mountains.

Our customer reviews

I just spent every downtime moment of the last month reading all four books. they are totally addictive. I found this last installment to be a bit sad and slightly inconclusive. (I mean, who the heck is Angela----really?) I loved how moments from the very first book became so significant in this one, tying almost everything together. Spoiler alert: And if you are a strong romantic, this may not be the conclusion you wished for! But happy reading!show more
