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 further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?
I am happy....these are the words I said when I finished this book. I am happy not to see this series end but the way this series made its way back up to being one of my favorite series. Being let down as a reader by the third book, whatever that's in the past. This fourth book was a book that I did not put sown for one second. With its twists and turns, i was on my toes the whole way.
The characters I loved, and yes I was happy to finally read about the man that has caused so much trouble these past years. I loved how as a rider, you share a special connection with your dragon. Your fighting as one person. Love for one another is the most special thing that a rider and a dragon can have for each other. And that is what Eragon and Saphira shared page after page throughout this book.
When it came down to the final battle, I didn't know what to expect. But wow, the battle scene and how it was portrayed was cool. I loved how Eragon was able to have Galbatorix feel all the pain he has caused when making his so called "perfect world."
With the final installment of Mr. Paolini's fantastic series. I am glad that I picked up this series and dove into the world of Alagaesia. I would ask all readers to check out this series when you have the chance because I loved it and so will you.
I give this book 5 souls!
