I decided to read this book after Eragon (the book). Eragon has defeated Durza, a shade with the Varden as an ally. Now he is headed for Ellesmera, where the elves are. I'm excited about the journey ther, the scencery, the animals and plants Eragon will meet. His accompanions are Orik, a dwarf, Arya, Nari, and Lifaen, elves. They reveal a great deal about each other and their past and what their goals.ambusions are. Eragon also learns about the ways and gestures of the elves in Ellesmera.

i found this really boring in the beginning. I tried reading this over 3 times in the past, but no sucess. But this time, i manage to hang on until the other half of the book and now it's getting interesting and the suspense is building up for the final battle. Now, im really arsobed into the book. And the reunion of the two cousins reunite! They shared tales of adventures and hardships throughout the time they're separated, and finally, their love.

I love and hate the ending! It was vwry tense and exciteing enough to keep me in my seat for hours reading it without looking up or getting distracted. But the ending was bad because of how Eragon train so much and still lost, even after he turned in a half-elf and half-human! Also he had Zar'roc, a rider's sword and Murtagh didn't. Also what's more exciting is that Murtagh didn't died, and he becaming a dragon rider like Eragon! And what's more was that they are brothers! That was soo unexpected. The twins turned out to betrayed them, but i predicted that so i wasn't really that suprised. I hated it when you train for something so much, everyday, constantly and put tons of effort into it, but at the end, lost in every way. Beaten. Accepted utter defeat. That happens a few times to me at life.
