BOOK Ò Ë Christopher Paolini Oaths sworn loyalties tested forces collideIt's been only months since Eragon first uttered brisingr an ancient language term for fire Since then he's not only learned to create magic with words he's been challenged to his very core Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains Eragon and his dragon Saphira have narrowly es Absolutely brilliant There's something special about a series that you can read time and time again and always come away with a new interpretation and sense of wonderOne thing that hasn't changed despite how many times I've read this series is my complete and utter love for the world of AlegaesiaWe follow Eragon once a simple farm boy now a Dragon Rider and Alegaesia's only hope for freedom as he fights for his country and against the evil emperor GalbatorixThrough Eragon's detour into Farthen Dur we learn how deep his morals run and his true character I appreciate how Paolini is able to keep Eragon human and deeply flawed despite his almost infinite powers The monsters of the mind are far worse than those that actually exist Through Sapphira's scenes we finally know what it is like to be a dragon Complete with magic mystery and awe inspiring moments Die puny human Through the Trial of Long Knives we learn the strength and tenacity of Nasuada leader of the Varden She became an absolute pinnacle of grace poise and ruthlessness in one short sceneAnd through the election of the next Dwarven king we truly learn how deeply convoluted and boring Dwarf politics can be I'm not saying it wasn't important but good lord that was a long sceneOverall I liked this one okay okay I realllllly liked this oneChristopher Paolini does such an amazing job fleshing out the world of Alegaesia I wholly regret that this world is one of fiction I loved the return of Angela and her werecat every scene the two of them were in just absolutely shone I adored how much Roran has grown and changed over the past few books Katrina has stepped up to the plate and has so much personality now it's wonderfulThe only thing that I wish would be differed would be the romance I really wanted to see the romance between Eragon and Arya develop a bit I feel like there is so much potential but we only see a small sliver of that Absolutely cannot wait for the next bookAudiobook Comments Read by Gerard Doyle and I love the consistency of the narration These books are all over 20 hours so I really commend the narrator Also love the accent that Murtagh Eragon's brother has BUT the dragon accents are just miserable Picture Yoda with a head cold gargling nails YouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

BrisingrAnd strength as are the elves and dwarves When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner Eragon must make choices choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond choices that may lead to unimagined sacrificeEragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the kin I just completed reading Brisingr and I must say that I was very impressed with the plotTo compress all of my thoughts and the plot in to only one word this has to be it UnpredictableCertain events that happened in the book really took me by surprise and I have to applaud Christopher Paolini to even think about such a complex plot I could hardly guess what might happen in the next few pages and the only way for me to find out was to keep my head buried deep within its depthSeriously any reader who has followed the cycle closely will be in for a big surprise That I can promise youOne word of advice Do not let the horrible movie of the first book tarnish your impression of the cycle That is probably the last thing you'd like to do I am also very eager for the next and final book to arrive It was a bit saddening to know that Brisingr is not going to be the last one and us fans will have to go through another few years of torment to find out the ending of Eragon and Saphira But until then may your swords stay sharp and let us meet at the gates of Uru'baen for the final blowwhoo I managed to write a review that didn't have any spoilers
