(from Goodreads) 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 Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?
This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.
Hardcover, 800 pages
Expected publication: November 8th 2011 by Random House
I'm so excited for this one! I've been waiting forever! Ever since I picked up a copy of Eragon at my nephews house and got sucked in, I've been anxiously waiting for each one to be released and eagerly reading them at breakneck speeds. While I will admit the third was a little slower than the rest, I still love these rich descriptive books! I love Eragon and Saphira's relationship and can't wait to see if they make it through alive. I want to know what will become of Murtagh and Arya and Nasuada, not to mention Elva. I'm SO excited I'll be setting aside all my other books come October and re-reading the first three so I remember all the tiny nuances and details. Yeah, I'll shut up now. I'm just super thrilled it's finally coming.
