Bobby Luke You really didn't see that coming? The twins? C'mon. Sure the dragon bit..that was surprising...but you had to know something like this was coming. Why else kill important characters in the first chapter?

Anthony "they go after the people Eragon most wants to protect in order to get to him" Almost all villains go after the main character's loved ones to get to get to the main character.

Julian Whaley I agree with you on most points about this book. I loved it. Although I found the second book's writing not as good as Eragon, the plot was phenomenal. I loved all of the plot twists, showing a much deeper connection between some characters. I also loved how Paolini expanded on all of his own creations, such as the languages and creatures and the world itself.

Joe Lundy Love your view of this book. I agree with Julian when he says that Eragon was better, but I guess that is expected. More over, I love all the details Paolini brings out especially when they get to Ellesmera. I totally agree with you when you say the extra dragon and rider up-ed the tension. I can't wait to see what Eragon and Saphira do next to stop King Galbatorix and I'm quite curious to see what comes afterwards. I love this book series and I can't wait to read the next book.

Van Markiton I agree with you that watching Eragon and Saphira's bond grow was fascinating. I also think that Eragon matured more as he got a deeper connection with Saphira. In the first book, Eragon was immature and not ready for battle, but In this book, Eragon is a mature warrior who knows what he needs to do. I also liked how the author went into more detail on Alegaesia, because I felt like it added a lot more importance to the area instead of it just beeing another fictional land. I did really like this book, even though I could have stood for it to be a bit shorter.
