Synopsis

OATHS SWORN . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more 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, Katrina, 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 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?

I really enjoyed Eragon, and liked Eldest alright, though it was definitely a slower read than Eragon, so I thought I would see how this series ended. Imagine my surprise when I struggle through 17 CDs and it becomes apparent that this book is not going to wrap things up...and sure enough, I go online and discover that he's planning on writing ANOTHER one. I stopped listening right there and sent the book back without finishing it - it was THAT slow.
