Second in a trilogy, this book traces the adventures of dragonrider Eragon and his dragon partner Saphira. Like many middle books in a trilogy, this one focuses on character development and expansion of the plot. I look forward to the next book by this young author.
Christopher Paolini's "Eldest" thrilled me with its suspense and imagination! It was perhaps the best book I've ever read! The book continues from Eragon's previous adventure, but this time with a whole new kick to it! Eldest's plot kept me thrilled to the very end. In this installment to the Inheritence cycle, the story continues with Eragon's magical training, and his thirst for revenge. But he's not the only one lookng for vengeance! Eldest also includes Roran and Lady Nasuada's story. This book tells the story of how Roran is forced to leave Carvahall and encounter as many dangers a Eragon himself. This book is a must-have, must-read for all you magic, Knights and dragon fans! I also recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Percy Jackson series, or the Harry Potter series, for all three authors share a similar taste for swords, magic, and adventure!
Another great book for fantasy lovers! I'm not a book freak and I couldn't put it down!
Excellent book! The only one that comes to mind with a drunken dragon. Roran plays a far bigger role in this book becoming one of the main characters and in my opinion almost takes over the book completely, his story is epic love story of loss and revenge.I do wish some of the war scenes were described in more detail as I do enjoy strategy war books etc, but I suppose this isn't supposed to be that kind of story.All in all an excellent book, romance, death, chaos - what more could you ask for?off to book 3!
