Review: This is perhaps the most amazing book series I have ever had the pleasure to read. Eldest in particular is great in itself – It’s the middle part – where the series itself begins to develop beyond the limits of the first book Join Eragon the farm boy as he continues to learn about his history and his future. Great “growing up” story – a fantastic read for everyone. All ages will enjoy the thrill ride of magic, adventure, and just general fantasy. Eragon Saphira, Arya, and Brom are the perfect group of characters – fully developed and highly enjoyable to read about. The plot as a whole is astonishing – Eragon and Saphira, his dragon, travel to the home of the elves to learn about magic and study under the elves and some completely surprising characters! The outside world’s strife is too great though, and eventually they must leave their sanctuary and take matters into their own hands. Buy the book and read it to the end in order to find out what happens! Will Eragon escape? Will he die? What happens to the other characters in the story? It’s up to you to find out!
