I'm already on this series. I've read Eragon, which was fantastic. Eldest, the second in the series was super crap. Brisingr, wasn't interesting either. But since I've read the first 3, and since I've started reading this series, I've to read to the end. Thankgod Inheritance is the final in the series. And also because of this awful Inheritance Cycle experience, I'm avoiding reading anything that is a part of a series.
