And if they can, at what price? This is the much-awaited, astounding ending to the world wide best selling Inheritance cycle.
Reviews "Inheritance," the fourth and final installment in the Eragon trilogy was a fantastic read. After long months of hard battle and training, the varden are starved for hope in their long campaign to topple the evil empire. Even though the Varden have beaten back the empire to their front door, the capital city of Uru'baen, they know that they have little chance of defeating the all powerful and evil king Galbatorix. Realising this, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira embark on a trip to the Vault of Souls. At the vault, Eragon and Saphira discover what may potentially be the key to defeating Galbatorix and his power-hungry empire. The couple take the "key" back to the assault on Uru'baen to commence the final showdown and finally try to kill Galbatorix. I rated this book five stars because the whole story, beginning to end, was truly captivating. The amount of detail put forth into the book made me envision myself as the protagonist, Eragon in his quest to make peace in Alegaesia. I also enjoyed the book because of all of the attention grabbers and cliff-hangers at the beginning and end of each chapter. I didn't want to stop reading. The only thing that was a little troubling for me was the vague ending of the story, as it raised many questions that I was hoping to get an answer for. I imagine that Mr. Paolini intended for his readers to map out their own ending of the story, instead of just writing a difinitve one to rap things up. The main theme of this trilogy was telling readers to not be afraid of change and sacrifice, and that all humans are created equally despite the difference of power in the world. â€œWho is it who decides that one man should live and another should die? My life wasn't worth any more than his, but he's the one who's buried, while I get to enjoy at least a few more hours above the ground. Is it chance, random and cruel, or is there some purpose or pattern to all this, even if it lies beyond our ken?" (Paolini, 312). Roran has realized that he is no different than his friend Carn, who was slaughtered by empire militia. If he were in Carn's shoes, he'd be in the ground and Carn would still be alive. It just goes to show how chance and fate play a huge role in our lives, and the lives of fictional characters as well.
I would recommend this book to just about anyone who enjoys a good, suspenseful read. Personally, I am not a huge fan of fantasy based literature. However, after reading this, I've discovered that as long as there are characters in a story in which we can relate to, there will always be an urge to learn more about them, despite which genre of literature the characters are present in.
As promised this is the last book of the series. According to the acknowledgments Paolini plans to return to this universe at some point, however, the book does finish this particular era. In the tradition of Tolkien and many other classic saga writers, this ending does not wrap up neatly and leaves many unanswered questions and creates new ones, but that is the nature of a saga--it is just a slice of events at a certain point in time. I also don't see the unanswered and new questions as a basis for a new series. I think they are just how he saw it ending. We rarely get all of the answers (which he alludes to in the acknowledgments). Like other sagas it does not end where other books would end. The event you have been expecting since the first book does occur (no spoiler there) however the manner of it and the subsequent events are what take it from being an adventure fantasy with a clean and neat ending to, what many younger readers might say, a "kind of long, drawn out ending". It is necessary, however, because at several thousand pages anything else would just be cheating. Paolini has created a world with its own mythology and it couldn't have been written any other way. The writing has greatly improved throughout the series to become more mature. This only makes sense since the same probably can be said of the author. There is more depth to the characters and many heartbreaking moments that seem to be more true to life. Definitely no pandering to the masses in this novel. Even the final meeting of the protagonists is unexpected in many ways as they are not one dimensional creatures, but full of subtleties and thoughtfulness. I didn't find myself thinking "well that was a cheap trick" or being disappointed with the methods or plot turns. They seemed right and logical. The battle was not just between good and evil. The 'good' have their faults and the 'evil' had some good intention, if the manner in which that intention was carried out was completely whacked. Paolini even manages to show the subtleties of similarities in the 'sides' and how close we all come to creating the same problems from a different angle. It is the story of how we all change, how we need to take time and patience to discover who we really are before we can change anything. It is a story of dropping ego and looking deeply inside and accepting our faults the same way we accept our gifts. Paolini has grown into a very skilled writer and I enjoyed this book more than any of the others in the series. I am glad he took the time and honored what he was creating by taking it from a trilogy to a saga.
Eragon, a strong, young, brilliant Dragon Rider, is about to face the most powerful Dragon Rider and magician of all time. It has been a long journey to get to Galbatorix's (the most powerful magician) castle Urabaen already, but finally Eragon has to meet and attempt to kill him. Eragon knows he is no match for Galbatorix, and he tries and risks everything in order to figure out a plan to defeat Him. With the help of Arya, Nasuada, Orik (king of the dwarves), and Queen Izlanzadi (queen of the elves), Eragon found something; he might have found a key to bring Galbatorix to his demise. Once he enter Urabaen though, everything goes wrong and Eragon has to improvise. Now nothing will save Eragon but his own thinking. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini is an outstanding book that shows that you have to go through hardships and difficulties to accomplish your goals; you can't give up in the middle when you think you can't bear it anymore. Paolini shows this on several occasions along with other deeper meanings. Paolini makes you dwell deep into the story, making you feel horrible when someone dies, and relieved if someone accomplishes something. I couldn't put this book down. Don't think Inheritance is some fantasy novel about people saying abra-kadabra and you're dead. It is a very sophisticated novel with a lot of deeper meanings relating to real-life traits people need in order to be successful. I recommend this to anyone that likes Harry Potter, Percy Jackson series, and the Hunger Games series. This book is better than Harry Potter and Hunger Games combined.
