In this fourth and final book of the series, Eragon comes into his own as a dragon rider, discovers the truth about his lineage, makes peace with Murtagh and Roran, resolves his internal conflict over his attraction to Arya and learns to use understanding in an unconventional way in the final battle with Galbatorix.
Even more important the book goes on for several chapters beyond the end of the war where most fantasies would have ended. It looks at post-war chaos, devastation, confusion, and maneuvering in the power vacuum left after the conflict. Paolini has a deep insight into the aftermath of war far beyond the abundant hack and slash of battle of which there is plenty..

I love the Eragon series. I bought the last book on CD. I listened to most of it, enjoying it immensely. One of the CDs kept skipping, screeching and was unhearable. I sent the CD book back to the company to have it replaced. I have not heard anything from the company nor have I received a new copy of the CD book. I have written to the company twice asking what has happened to my replacement and have received NO response.

Excellent conclusion to his series. Christopher Paolini has grown in style and storytelling ability in the years between Eragon and Inheritance. Well done!
