As a great dragon lover I definitaly enjoyed this book and recommend it and the three others in its series. It is both beautifull and mysterious but also deadly (and a bit gory at times too). It is imaginative and original and describes the landscape and characters wonderfully. It makes you feel excited and breathless and is in all a very good book, dragon lover or not.

The book begins with a young farmer, Eragon, living in Palancar Valley and under the hardships of Lord Galbatorix's rule. Upon finding a weird blue stone in the Spine - a treacherous mountain range - during his hunting, he begins on a journey to discover the true and terrible powers and duty of a Dragon Rider with his dragon companion, Saphira.

This book is one of the best! :D

Beautiful hardback, collector's edition with blue boards and gold gilt lettering. It has blue marbled endpapers and several illustrated coloured plates inside. Paper quality seems to be good and overall this book feels sturdy but not heavy. I have one complaint and that is that the spine seems to be slightly off centre, however the front is perfectly aligned so this looks like a minor production error and is probably the case with all the collector's editions. This wouldn't put me off from buying this book though, it is beautifully done and a must have for Eragon fans if you can get it at a semi-reasonable price.

I really enjoyed this book because it contains lots of different fantasy themes, from magical creatures (dragons!!), fantastical scenery to huge battles. The characters are all interesting and there are lots of shocking plot twists. Secrets are revealed throughout the novel to keep the reader gripped. However the best thing about this book is the way the author portrays magic. I love that magic has so many rules and is bound by a language - you can't just wave a stick and make objects fly across the room! I also like that magic takes up your energy. I read this series at least twice a year, I just spot them and remember how good they are. This is among my favorite books of all time alongside Harry Potter and The Lord Of The Rings.

First of all.. NO SPOILERS!!!

Positives

1) Christopher Paolini has a certain style of writing which is unique.. it is well detailed, enrapturing and flowing.

2)In general I felt this book lived up to standards of the previous books in the series.. better infact. A lot of books do not always tie up all the loose ends. The fact that this book did pleasantly surprised me. A few examples - Sloan in Du Weldenvarden(does he recieve his eyesight?), The Menoa tree (Eragon owed the Menoa tree for taking the brightsteel for his sword Brisingr), Birgit (Roran caused the death of her husband in book one and she wanted revenge - I forgot about this!). This is one of the single most reasons why I am satisfied with the book. You may or may not like the ending but at least it addresses all of the unfinished business.

3) Another satisfactory point addressed in this book is that in general, books tend to end with or shortly after 'the final battle'(whatever the outcome may be). In Inheritance the final battle ends and there are a good few chapters of the aftermath.. what happens, unrest, happiness, businesses etc.

4) I am thoroughly happy with what Eragon and Saphira found in Vroenguard in the Vault of souls (was not expecting that!!! Readers you will know what I am talking about). Also the Eldunari make things more realistic in terms of power to the Varden.

5) The 'final battle' was appropriate.. Galbatorix afterall has serious power for a reason. The way in which Eragon fights back is fitting.

Negatives

1) It can be frustrating when a particular exciting chapter in Eragons life is left dangling with anticipation and is then followed by a chapter in Roran's life. But to be fair, this is because the storyline is so good you just want to find out what happens next. All about the suspense!!! Also, some people may find the lengthy descriptions tedious but I find its the right amount.

2) Romantics - sorry but you will be dissapointed severely in this book. We hear nothing about Arya for 1000s of pages and this outcome was a seriously under... no words to describe. In its own way, it has its own special meaning but if we are being honest I expected more!! Also, nothing blossoms with Nasuada.. COME ON! Personally this was the singlemost negative in this whole book. COME ON!

3) Very final ending is a little sad.

All in all however I have to rate this book 5 stars. It is very good storytelling and more!! Such a justified 'final battle' and the Vault of Souls on Vroenguard was unexpected. Well done Mr. Paolini.

PROS-

A Lovely story as always with Paolini
A good rich set of characters old and new
Beautifully written
More of the wonderful World of Algaesia which I believe will be seen in future books.

CONS-

It felt like he had used a thesaurus. I know he has matured in style since Eragon, but long words arent always better, especially when they dont quite fit, and I felt he had gone out of his way to use "long/clever" words unnecessarily. This didnt interfere with his beautifully descriptive writing style though.
It took a while to get to the excitement of the story. A few early chapters may not be crucial to the story.
After reading four long books I was invested in the characters, especially the main few, and I couldnt wait to see how their relationships with each other, and their journies would end. I feel I have been left hanging somewhat, although in fairness that may just be because Paolini didnt end their journies where I had hoped.

IN CONCLUSION

If you have read, and enjoyed, the other three books you will enjoy this one. It may take a bit if getting in to and it may not end as you hope but that doesnt take away from the fact that Paolini has written another beautiful book which I thoroughly enjoyed.

And the series has finally come to a close. It has been a long wait, I have followed it from the beginning and seen Mr Paolini's writing go from strength to strength with each book.

Once again the characters were often spread over several locales, so I would find myself at a cliff hanger with Roran, then the next chapter had jumped across the land to Eragon. This kept me reading, constantly looking for what would happen next. At times I felt it became a bit slow with long chapters of discussion or waiting for the next battle, but soon I was hooked back in. any boredom was never enough to make me stray from the book for long. And I'm glad I stayed until the end.

The worst thing about this book is that it means the series is over. Very sad to see it end, but I think it ended on a high. There were a few small loose ends, for one character in particular, which gives me hope there may one day be a sin off book. After all, somebody who started writing so young is unlikely to stray far from the craft for long!

I eagerly away Mr Paolini's future works

The "Inheritance Cycle" (4 books in all,) is an extremely fulfulling fantasy on all counts ; the individual characters, the landscape/map, the various races and their cultures, etc. We have large battlescenes, but also longed for discovery within the land. And within our favorite persons. No mistake, this is a "getting of age" tale for all involved, especially for Eragon and his beloved dragon Saphira of course, but also Arya, the elf woman who was responsible for bringing Saphiras egg to Eragon in the first place, as well as the leader of the Varden, Nasuada, and Eragons cousin Roran.
In book 4, "Inheritance", Christopher Paolini really surprises with his tale-spinners ability.
Eragon is, as those of you who have followed him know, not quite unsimilar to the character of Frodo Baggins in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy by Tolkien. He means well, but is often engulfed with remorse when he fails to accomplish what he deems right.
This quality, (or as some might think, lack of it), brings Eragon to doubt a lot of decisions he is making. This ethical element inside him is further hightened through a long stay in the elvish forest-capital of Du Weldenvarden where he is being trained during book 3.
In the final book, all must come to a conclusion; either the Varden will persist and conquor, or all AlagaΓ«sia will fall to ruin under the evil dragonslayer and self-proclaimed King Galbatorix and his mighty spells.

We are finally told a great secret which leads Eragon to discover the truth about how to eventually defeat Galbatorix. However, their strenghts still arent matched equally, and Eragon must further improve his mental and physical training to be up for anything like a challenge. After all, his brother Murtagh and dragon Thorn has been forced to swear allegience to the King, and though unwilling to really hurt Eragon, has not hesitated to kill others around him.
So that this review remains spoiler-proff, I will only add that Roran and Nasuada will get plenty of narration.

I will just add that I was awed by the final book. As much as I had tried in the previous 3, I was not able to fathom the secrets and events in the final one. You have great read ahead :-)

At some bits your like will I just give up on this book and I felt that once in this book but I kept going and it was amazing
What the found in the vault of souls changes Eragons whole life and it is so sad in the end
I was crying because of it keep going with this book and you'll realise it was all worth it in the end
I wish there was a fifth or a sixth book but it seems highly unlikely
I felt all these emotions when I was reading this book:πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€πŸ˜¬πŸ˜§πŸ˜€πŸ˜£πŸ˜πŸ˜•πŸ˜±πŸ˜²πŸ˜΅πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜πŸ™…πŸ™πŸ’”
You'll understand when you read this book

I loved this book it is well written and neatly ties all the vastness off the story together. I have really enjoyed the Inheritance books,they all had their own distinctiveness about them, but Inheritance, the last, is definitely a mature book. you have grown to love or hate the characters and this books brings their stories to a satisfactory conclusion. I am sorry to have finished to be honest, to be so utterly caught in the lives of fiction is very hard. To any one who has enjoyed the other books this will not disappoint. and many thanks to Mr Paolini for a job very well done. It has been a real pleasure to spend the last few weeks in the lives of Eragon and Saphira. an experience I have no doubt I will repeat again and again.

I read this book because I thought the film rushed through the story too quickly. Sure enough, I liked the book a lot more - though I couldn't help thinking I'd have enjoyed it more if I'd read it when I was 13 instead of 30.

The plot has one or two weak points and there's a feeling of deja vu for anyone familiar with the genre, but for all that it is a good story. The only thing I struggled with was the author's style: he seemed to me to be trying too hard to make it impressive, so that the good characters use all their skill and spend every last shred of energy at every task, and always seem to have just enough time for some dramatic last words or last-minute action, while the bad guys have evil-sounding names and live in appropriately grim landscapes. I kept wishing that just once, someone would make a silly mistake or come across a landscape - or a tool - that looked ordinary. It was enough to put me off reading the next book, at least for a while, although as this appears to be Paolini's first book things might calm down a bit later on.

I liked the comparison between Eragon and Star Wars. It strikes me that the Star Wars film trigoly released in the '70s showed episodes 4, 5 and 6 because episodes 1, 2 and 3 just weren't as good. Now that the Inheritance Cycle has stretched to three and a half books, there may be great things ahead.
