Audiobook Review @paolini - Brisingr by Christopher Paolini (The Inheritance Cycle #3)

The Inheritance Cycle #3
by Christopher Paolini

Goodreads blurb:  Oaths sworn... loyalties tested... forces collide.

It'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 Empires warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon's oath to his cousin, Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and 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 sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

About the Author:  Christopher Paolini was born on November 17, 1983 in Southern California. He has lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana with his parents and younger sister, Angela. The tall, jagged Beartooth Mountains rise on one side of Paradise Valley. Snowcapped most of the year, they inspired the fantastic scenery in the Inheritance Cycle.

Christopher is grateful to all his readers. He is especially heartened to hear that his books have inspired young people to read and to write stories of their own. Although Christopher will one day return to Alagaësia, he is currently working on a science fiction novel.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I borrowed the Playaway audiobook from my local library

The cover is very majestic and beautiful :)

I read this book back in 2008.  I enjoyed this book & loved the story just as much when I listened to the audio version now.  I love that it is narrated by the same narrator as the other books.  When you get used to a narrator it makes each book seem like an old friend.

Christopher Paolini is an amazing author with the words he uses to weave a fantastic epic story.  This whole series is absolutely marvelous, and it will always be one of my favorite series.  I highly recommend the audio version for readers who are intimidated by the size of the books because no one should miss out on such a wondrous story.

Eragon & Saphira go through so much in their lives and in this book as much as in each of the other books.  The conflict and strife can definitely be felt as you are sucked into the story.  All the characters who support Eragon & Saphira are also a part of this story.  There is plenty of sadness, but I will not tell you more because I do not want to ruin your journey.

I highly recommend this series to everyone who loves fantastical stories and who already love this series.  If you are fond of stories like the Lord of the Rings series, The Hobbit series, and Harry Potter, then you will love this series too!!
