Don’t miss the latest book from the author of Eragon, The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia! 

Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times bestselling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.

Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle–one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . .

    A great book with a great story line. Kept me awake and entertained for hours in the car. I enjoyed every part of it! The narrator is fantastic as well. The characters' "voices" seem very realistic and are consistent through the whole series.

    amazing!! All 4 books take you on an adventure and make you want to learn magic. I'm a 100% disabled veteran and have ptsd from 212 combat missions, these books have been therapy for me. I have the books and the books on tape, when the anxiety or anger hits I put the headphones on and then I'm no longer a vet sitting by myself trying to figure out how to deal with the difficulties of civilian life, I'm flying with Eragon into battle against the empire. I've also given the books as gifts and everyone i have given them to has become addicted to them. they are books for readers of all ages.

    This has always been my favorite book in the series! Finally being able to put a voice to what I perceive as Oromis was very satisfying. I think the thing I love most about listening to this book is it allows you to fully concentrate on the relationship between teacher and student! And for having read this series countless times you really start to understand just how much Oromis cares for Eragon

  • kaleb ramseier

    Amazing book! I've read them all before. The narrator is horrible but you get used to it after a while.

  • Derek Murray

    The narrator is terrible but if you can get past it the book is amazing.

  • Tammie Curry

  • Jayson Westberry

    love it, can really sit back and get into the story!!!!

  • Zachary Bizjak

    I love these books so much, I remember reading them some of them in high school and buying the complete book set when the fourth an final book came out, for me the narrator could have been better in my eyes, I would have much rather ha the author himself read it simply because in his mind he had all the voices of all the character's set and I believe it would have been much better with the author reading it instead.
