Publisher's Summary

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors, Eragon and Saphira narrowly escaped with their lives. But more awaits the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep, including his oath to cousin Roran to help rescue his beloved Katrina. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes, Eragon must make choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death await listeners as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist him to his own purposes. Can he become a leader who can unite the rebel forces and defeat the King?

the best book ever read (after the 1 and 2)

It was brilliant you just want him to continue writing and to think that he wrote the first book when he was 16 it's incredible. If you've read or seen lord of the rings eragon is about the same but with more magic in the story and bit less wars.

Amazing but read the first two first

Read the first two first or you will have no idea what is going on.
Gerrald Doyle is brilliant at voicing all the characters making them consistent in pitch and tone to his voices from the other two books.
=D
Loved it!

Good attempt

As with the others, the reader is treated as a little simple, and all the dragons sound like Daleks. Love the way the more slow characters have West Country accents...

Ita a thing...

I've committed myself now. Honestly this book would have gotten 3 stars if not for a joke that had me laughing so hard it will forever be my favourite moment in the series. It's early in the book, about Arya while the 3 characters speak. I won't say anymore for fear of spoiling it.
The jarring husky male voices of the dragons is less noticible to me now, and overall the story is okay. A bit boring, a bit long for what it actually covers. Feels like a fan fiction where the author is determined to hit an impressive word count rather than the words holding substance.
Lord of the rings is much shorter and holds so much more charm, its quality not quantity, but alas... Onto the final book then I can be done.

Chapter breaks are off

Great story and Gerard Doyle does really well with his reading but the chapter breaks for the audio book tracks occur mid sentence rather than using the actual chapters. It is very off putting and means you can’t actually set it to snooze at end of chapter. :(

The Best

This story, and the whole series is outstanding and draws you in so much. Highly recommend.
Wish there was more than 4 books, I never get sick of hearing about the world of Alagaesia.
