This book is a true sequel to Eldest. What I meant is that it keeps up the same pace and also alternates between Eragon's and Roran's adventures. TherThis book is a true sequel to Eldest. What I meant is that it keeps up the same pace and also alternates between Eragon's and Roran's adventures. There are few chapters that's narrated from Saphira's perspective, which were amusing.
There are many revelations in this book, that would make the reader and has made Eragon happy. There's long part dedicated to Dwarf politics which is intriguing and cunning. I liked how Orik worded his speech in order to gain advantage in the 'clanmeet'.
The one point I find irritating about Eragon is that he keeps asking silly questions and sometime questions that are obvious to the reader. This sort of curiosity was fine when he was inexperienced and was first put into the shoe of a Dragon Rider. But, now that he's more experienced and has lived with the Elves, Dwarves and Vardens, he's expected to make some informed guesses or pose the questions in a less naive way.
Roran rocks in this book, as much as in the last book. He's still the hero of the mortal men. One constant theme through out the book is the moral difficulties both, Eragon and Roran, face in taking part in battles.
Overall the book has good pace. There are no very long description of character or surrounding.
