I loved this book. It answers most of my questions, that had us screaming and hitting our heads against the walls for the past few years. This books is my personal favorite in the series, and it ends perfectly, even though Eragon will likely spend his life alone, without a love to ever be there with him... I am glad for the dragons, for they have a chance to rebuild their race, and I was suprised that killing Galbatorix was so easy. I expected them to ride on their dragons and confrtont each other in a major sword battle, but it was an awkward spell that killed him! As for Murtagh, I am glad that he and Thorn are good guys. Basically, the book ends the way I want it, but the next dragon rider was rather predictable!

Nandanie It actually came out on the 8th! I love the chapter with Saphira! She describes humans as "two legs and round ears"! and elves as"two legs and pointed ears!" it took me a while to understand...I would say what my favorite part really is but I dont' want to spoil it, let's just say that I feel pity for Nasuada, for she endured pain
