About the Author
Christopher Paolini's love of fantasy and the natural beauty that surrounds his home in Montana inspired him to begin writing the Inheritance Cycle at fifteen. He became a number one bestselling author at nineteen and spent the next decade immersed in the world of Alagaesia. Also an accomplished artist, Christopher drew the interior art for the books. In his spare time he enjoys sharpening knives, playing video games, lifting heavy things and searching for the perfect leather-bound notebook.

I was really hanging out for a new book buy C.P.
Excited to hear about this new book I pre ordered it and waited patiently.
Began reading the day of release however quickly realised this book is on a totally different level. It's like someone else has written it. So mind numbingly boring that I didn't finish it, I went back to it 3 times trying to finish it. Each time I realise why I didn't want to finish it, I tried skipping pages past long winded explanations of uninteresting stories I didn't care about at all, but in the end I just removed it from my Kindle.
3 chapters that don't really tell us much more. This series stopped with a lot of things not finished, leaving the reader wondering what happened. At the start we heard that Eragon was going to be loved by a noble woman, which we all expected was Arya. But, no........ She's just faded away. So, who is it??

On opening day, you have eaten little, in readiness for the feast you are about to receive. When you open the door and go in, something doesn’t seem quite right. Your favourite choices are still there, but they are only available as starters - the main course on offer is something you’ve tasted but you haven’t really tried before on its own. I suppose it’s quite good all-in-all.
It also didn’t go unnoticed that the prices have risen considerably. This is to be expected as that’s the way the world works, however, the portion sizes were considerably smaller than last time you went. You’re still really quite hungry at the end but there isn’t any more food around. The chef comes out to your table and to thank for coming and to also let you know that his sister has been helping out in the kitchen.
The following week you visit a different town and see the same food at half the price. Ouch!
You make a decision, you might not go back to the restaurant... you’ll fondly remember the good times but leave them in the past.
The book was much anticipated, finding it short meant that I tried to eek it out longer and then was somewhat stunted when I finished the book at 75% with the last quarter fattened up with the preview of Eragon, the first book again. This felt very weird since the book had nods towards the series which would be lost on a first time reader.
I’ve rated this 4 stars because I don’t want Christopher to be dissuaded from writing more. I want the books to sell and for him to write more. It’s just such a shame that with so much anticipation there was so little in the end.
For me personally it was a much welcomed step back into the world of Alagaësia, catching up with Eragon and Saphira and getting an idea of what's happened since the events of Inheritance. I think if you're an avid reader of Paolini and love the series you won't be disappointed by this brief but rewarding glimpse back into Eragon's world.
