This deluxe edition of the runaway international bestseller includes:

A sneak peek at Book III

An exclusive, full-color foldout poster of Glaedr by award-winning artist John Jude Palencar

A revealing excerpt of the history of Alagaësia

Never-before-seen art by the author, including an image of Brom’s elf ring

A complete and comprehensive list of people, places, things, and dwarf clans

Darkness falls. . . . Swords clash. . . . Evil reigns.

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesméra, land of the elves, for further training in magic and swordsmanship, the vital skills of the Dragon Rider. It is the journey of a lifetime, filled with awe-inspiring new places and people, each day a fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and Eragon isn’t sure whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle back home in Carvahall–one that puts Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . .

Eldest is a work of pure genius. It is full of heart break and confusion, betrayal and losses for Eragon. Christopher Paiolini is creative in a sense that stands out from everybody else. His writing is exquisite and made me want to read nonstop all day long, ( which i did by the way). Eldest and Eragon are pure master pieces and have given me things to think about while the third and last book of this series comes out.

Eldest is a wonderful book, full of adventure and other things dragon lovers and just about anyone will love to read. It is a must buy book like Eragon, and has a twist that will make anyone surprised.

I love this book and Eragon. I can spend days reading in my bedroom absorbing the thrill, romance and humour that these books provide. It is brilliance who created these books and should be hailed the next best young upcoming author. I'm in a trance that I can't escape and loving every minute.
