Inheritance Review

849 pages
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 AlagaĆ«sia? And if so, at what cost? This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

Such a great ending to an excellent series! At 800+ pages this book is satisfying in length and storyline. From the very start you're thrown into the action and adventure Eragon experiences as he fights his way to Galbatorix. The battle scenes are described in detail and the world is experienced through Eragon, his cousin Roran and Nasuada.  Eragon is still the main focus of the book. however, it brings a greater experience seeing the world through the other characters eyes. There are more mysteries to be discovered and new characters to be introduced. The ending was satisfying but also left a little open so there could possibly be a whole new series that comes from it. I definitely recommend this book but you also have to read the other 3 books in the series first.
