Eldest surpasses Eragon in every way; the writing is more fluid, the characters are more nuanced, and the story more compelling. This tale of high fantasy follows Eragon and Saphira as they become the heroes that everyone expects them to be. But, what makes the book compelling is the story of Eragon’s cousin, Roran, and his quest to find his lost love and free his village. Add in the mysterious Murtagh and a massive final battle and the book is well worth the read.
