is the final book of the wildly popular "Inheritance Cycle" by wunderkind Christopher Paolini
. In this thrilling conclusion, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, take the fate of their world into their own hands. The evil king, Galbatorix
, must be defeated and justice returned to the realm, but can the young dragonrider handle the pressure? That remains to be seen." (The Christian Science Monitor
"Featuring spectacular artwork by John Jude Palencar, this book brings the bestselling Inheritance cycle to a breathtaking conclusion." (Middlesbrough Evening Gazette
It is an extremely compelling and well written book, set in the magical land of Alagaesia, and is one of the best fantasy books I have read. Christopher Paolini is a great author who has been able to conjure up a fantastical yet believable world.
This is just as brilliant as all the other books in the series and ends spectacularly, but not in the way I expected...

The final stunning book in the Inheritance cycle featuring Eragon and his dragon Saphira.
