Inheritance Or the Vault of Souls (Hardcover)
|Author: Christopher Paolini|
|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 Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost?
This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.
From the Publisher:
The highly anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling quartet that includes
Christopher Paolini's sweeping epic, which began with a humble farm boy finding a glorious but worthless blue rock in the mountains, sends a grown Eragon and maturing Saphira to mount their last fraught attempt to defeat the evil King Galbatorix in this final volume of the Inheritance Cycle. Facing down death again and again, the brave duo and their numerous allies engage in elaborate battles that lead to fatal blow after fatal blow, bringing them closer to victory. However, to save Alagaesia for good, Eragon and Saphira must discover the source of Galbatorix's secret power. Multiple dangling plot lines are satisfyingly addressed, including what becomes of the troubling Murtagh, Nasuada's fate, the Dragon Riders' future, and where Arya will finally fit into Eragon's life. Bloody, brutal fights abound, magical quests reveal important answers, and crucial secrets are exposed in this lovingly detailed conclusion to the bestselling epic quartet.
Customer Reviews of Inheritance
Well, that was a disappoinment4/6/2012
What can I say, you string me along for a couple of years, only to end it like that. Seriously a bad way to end a (admittedly) good story. First time I am actually writing a review (though I read tones of books) which goes to show you my regard for this work, BUT seriously why such a contrived ending, why did Eragon have to leave (no room for visits either). I could rant on but others have covered pretty much everything so I'll leave it at that. But I would suggest paolini to rewrite the last portion of this book preferably more in line with the plot and less rushed.
