Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring)
Plot lines following dragon-rider Eragon, his cousin Roran Stronghammer, and leader-of-the-resistance Nasuada interweave in this series climax, building to an epic battle against the despotic Galbatorix. Paolini ably sustains tension throughout the eight-hundred-fifty-page tome (despite several diversions) thanks to well-constructed cliffhangers, rock-solid world building, and his infectious enthusiasm.
