Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors, Eragon and Saphira narrowly escaped with their lives. But, more awaits the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep, including his oath to cousin Roran to help rescue his beloved Katrina. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes, Eragon must make choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice. Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death await readers as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist him to his own purposes. Can he become a leader who can unite the rebel forces and defeat the King?

"Brisingr" is book 3 of 4 in the Eragon saga. To date, it has not been butchered by Hollywood the way the first book "Eragon" was
. Brisingr is "fire" in the old language, and there is plenty of it. It is also the name of Eragon's new Elven-crafted sword which becomes enveloped in magical blue flames when he speaks its name. In this volume the war against Galbatorix heats up in earnest. Eragon learns more of magic from the elves, becoming more elvish himself and learns some unsettling things about his ancestry. It is part of Paolini's irony that the humans, most of whom have no magical powers, are polytheistic, fearful, and superstitious, while the elves, who use magic for most things, are rationalists and agnostics.
There is still the tease of Eragon's mixed feelings towards the elf warrior-princess Arya. which becomes more complicated in this volume. I would strongly recommend that the books only be read in their proper sequence, or much will be lost on the reader.
