Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Tuesday, 14 February 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fiction: Fantasy. Audiobook from Listening Library, a division of Random House. Published in 2005. Read by Gerard Doyle. 23 hours and 33 minutes. Purchased from Audible.com.

Eldest is categorized as a “Young Adult” book, and is the second book in the Inheritance Trilogy. The kids got me started on Eragon when it first came out, and having enjoyed the first book I wanted to read the rest of the series as it became available. Now to wait for the final volume…

If you have not seen the story of the books’ author, Christopher Paolini, it’s worth a look.

Publisher’s summary:
Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns….

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle, one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life.
