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 farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost?

the long awaited finish

The long awaited conclusion to the Inheritance series is finally out and in preparation to this I reread the last three books in order to refresh my knowledge of happenings in Alageasia. Inheritance draws the Inheritance cycle to a close as now Eragon after facing many hardships and loss must face the evil king Galbatorix.

Paolini starts the book off with Eragon and Saphira attacking the Empire town of Belatona. By doing this he draws the reading in to that action and from then on the reader is hooked. A rather shocking moment in the battle adds to the effectiveness of this method. Paolini also provides more information into the life of Angela the witch and herbalist.

Throughout the story many readers myself included have wondered about the history of Angela and how she is able to appear whenever something big and exciting is about to happen.

For me the only drawback of this story is that the series had come to a end and that a new story and new characters would soon take over for Eragon and his brilliant dragon Saphira. But after reading the inheritance cycle from beginning to end I am convinced that Paolini and whatever his next books will be just as good as this series.

All four books now take pride of place in my staircase shaped book case ready for me to read again on a rainy or when I just in need a good book to whisk me away from the real world for a while.
