Wonderful follow up to Eragon
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I was eager to finish it and start the next. These books are considered "Young Adult", but they are for all ages. I hope that Christopher Paolini continues to write more of Eragon and Saphira.

This book was SO good that i might have to buy one for all of my friends for gifts. I was really impressed with its detail and ingenuity. I thought that it was almost bettert then Eragon (the first book). I was so enthralled that I am am barely able to wait until the next book comes out in September 2008. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
