Eragon and Saphira have been through a lot together. She a dragon and he a dragon rider, they have been together since she chose to hatch from an egg and bond with him. Now, along with Eragon's cousin Roran, they are setting out to avenge the death of Roran's father, the man who raised Eragon, and rid the world of a horrible blight in Brisingr: The Inheritance Cycle, Book 3.

The Ra'zac are foul creatures who bring nothing but death and decay. The larvae of a horrible species, they ride on the backs of their disgusting parents, bringing terror and havoc throughout the land. They killed the man who raised Eragon and Roran, and now they have captured Roran's beloved, Katrina. The two cousins are not happy with this state of affairs, to say the least, and are not at all sad that they must kill one of the Ra'zac in order to free Katrina. As Eragon is meting out justice on the Ra'zac, it tells him a curious thing- that Galbatorix, the evil emperor, has discovered 'the name of all names.' He does not know what this means and, thinking that it is merely a ploy to buy the creature a prolonged life, proceeds with killing it.

After rescuing Katrina, the cousins return to the Varden, where Eragon discovers that Katrina is pregnant with Roran's child. The joy is short lived, however, as after a hastily arranged marriage, Eragon must once again return to focusing on defeating the emperor. If only he can find out the significance of the clue the Ra'zac offered, he may finally have a way to win this horrible war.

Christopher Paolini is an American author who began writing while still in high school. He published his first book, Eragon, at the age of 19, and subsequently signed a contract with Knopf to continue the Inheritance cycle. He is now the author of four bestselling books, one of which was the inspiration for a blockbuster film. Paolini now lives in Los Angeles, California, and says he is taking a break from writing.

BRISINGR EXCLUSIVE: The audio edition of Brisingr features a revealing Q & A between best-selling author Christopher Paolini and editor Michelle Frey.

OATHS SWORN . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire’s warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon’s oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran’s beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix’s clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength—as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices— choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king? Download and start listening now!

    " i liked it alot and i think that it was a good cliff hanger for the last book, and i loved the extra story line that was added into it. "

    " The decision to split the last book in two in my opinion was the wrong choice. It was very slow and had very few important details added into its many pages. However, it was deffinently worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ariel | 6/26/2011

    " Could have done without the boring chapter about swordmaking. As always, too many fancy verbs, adverbs, and adjectives, but I still enjoy reading it. "

    " Amazing. The best of the three current books, except for the untimely cliff hanger at the end. The best description, emotion and writing skill in the three of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Owlette | 6/18/2011

    " I was hooked from the first two books and was desperate for a more than satisfactory ending. I got what I wanted! Eragon was by far the best in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Animelover | 6/17/2011

    " I did end up crying when I read this book. Now I really didn't like the first few pages in this book just because of the bloody ritual they did but I would read this book a hundred times more and just skip that part. "
