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 Alagaƫsia? And if so, at what cost?

My Review

Inheritance. This is really just one of those books that you wait for it... you wait for it... And when it is finally released, you don't what to do past simply reading it. And, once it has been read, you think to yourself, "Now what?" It is the fourth and final book in a truly epic fantasy series. One that as been apart of my reading life for.... what seems like forever.

"Now what?"

I started to read the book. Reading this book was a bit like meeting a friend you haven't seen in quite awhile. It's exciting, but you don't really know what to expect. Has it changed? Or is it still the incredible series I knew? My answer: The latter. Inheritance is pretty much everything I expected it to be and more. Surprising twists in the story had my flying through it's many pages. I couldn't wait see what happened next. But, at the same time, I wanted to pace myself with it. Because I knew that once I finished this book... it was over. The series that I never really wanted to end would be over. So, I wanted to read as quickly as possible, and yet I never wanted it to end. But, of course, it eventually did.

"Now what?"

It left a certain emptiness in me to know that this series was over. But, at the same time, I knew that it had to end sometime, and that it could not have ended more perfectly. Everything that these books build up to is worth every single page. The immense detail and awesomeness that is put into creating this world is spectacular.

I do not want to go too in-depth as to give the story away to some who have not yet read it. So, to be very vague, this book was nothing short of literary brilliance. Mysteries unfold, scores are settled. By the end of the , my brain was pretty much turned to mush. I loved it so much. To any fans of this series of genre, believe me when I say that this is definitely one book you should not miss out on.

And to answer the question of "Now what?" Well, I will simply go read the series again.


  1. I do agree that this is a wonderful series, but haven't gotten around to this last book in it yet. Now I'll check it out.

  2. It sounds like I have to start this series. It sounds great. Thanks for the review!


  3. It's strange to "hear" about this series. I remmeber I read the first book when I was in high school. I enjoyed it, but somehow I never read the third one. It's a great series, no matter what some people might say, but if I have to read the other books of the series, I have to re-read all the books because I would be quickly lost.
    Of course, there're all the things for a great fantasy book, so maybe I'll buy it.
    Well, thank you for this great review that makes me want to return in this world.

  4. I'm glad to hear you thought it was great. I got it this week, and it looks like a beast! 849 pages!! Your review has given me motivation. Thanks.

  6. I'm can't wait to read this! It's been so long since Brisingr, though, that I'll probably have to go back and read that first.

  7. I've been re-reading the series before I even go out and buy Inheritance. Good to know that it's something to look forward to. :)

  8. 2 percent to Usmanov, with this component of the deal to be covered over four years these are simply unavoidable to
    the moment and you can pay them back off later.

  9. All these folks may necessitate to extricate themselves from a difficult financial
    situation is really a handful of hundred dollars,
    and they also can acquire this from the payday loan lender Payday Loans to
    getpersonal loans, a low credit score is generally the very last thing which a
    lendinginstitution wants to find out on any with their clients applications.
