Goodreads Description:

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 chance.

The Rider and his dragon have come farther than anyone dared to imagine. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost?

This is the spellbinding conclusion to Christopher Paolini’s worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

My Thoughts:

I decided to read this book because I wanted to know how it all ends.

I ended up having to scan the last two hundred pages. I have never read a slower book filled with nothing but frilly wording. Paolini drags everything out as long as he possibly can, and so many times I felt like demanding he get to the point.

His failure to put Eragon and Arya together enraged me. I was expecting to finally see them together, but of course not. That would have been too logical.

I’m just so beyond disappointed and frustrated with this book. What a total waste.

Rating: 1/5
