Brisingr ( Inheritance Cycle) (Hardcover) by Christopher Paolini
about this item
War, love, and a strenuous battle of good versus evil are in store for Christopher Paolini fans in his third title of the Inheritance series. The boy dragon rider, Eragon, and his constant companion, the dragon Saphira, are torn by many loyalties, with the weight of the world on their shoulders. They must find a way to save Roran's beloved from the evil Ra'zac, and also help the Varden, the elves, and the dwarves in the gristly battle against King Galbatorix. Seemingly overwhelmed by their gargantuan tasks, Eragon and Saphira are forced to find a way to save the world, or all is lost. Both lauded and criticized as derivative of classic works by J.R.R. Tolkien, Ursula K. LeGuin, and J.K. Rowling, Paolini's work is nevertheless phenomenally successful. BRISINGR sold over half a million copies on its first day out, and will be followed by a fourth, hotly awaited book. The first books in the series are ERAGON, written when Paolini was just 15, and ELDEST.
With the battle against the Emperor's warriors over, Eragon must remain true to his oath to save his cousin's love, Katrina, from the hands of King Galbatorix, but when the Varden makes a desperate plea for his help at the same time, Eragon must make a challenging decision that could affect the lives of many in the Empire and beyond. 2,500,000 first printing.
