Fantasy lovers still recovering from the post-Harry Potter blues will find some much needed late-summer relief in these pages. Eldest, Christopher Paolini's accomplished sequel to his bestselling Eragon: Inheritance Book 1, continues the story with excitement and skill, expanding Paolini's imaginary world — and, as the story unfolds, the devoloping voice of its young author is revealed. Of all the swell young adult fantasies currently filling bookstore shelves this summer, Eldest is the swellest!

About the Author

Christopher Paolinis abiding love of fantasy and science fiction inspired him to begin writing his debut novel, Eragon, when he graduated from high school at fifteen after being homeschooled all his life. Both Eragon and Eldest, the second book in the Inheritance trilogy, became instant New York Times bestsellers. Christopher is currently at work on the final volume in the trilogy. He lives in Montana, where the dramatic landscape feeds his visions of Alagaësia.

An entertaining read, particulary recommended for boys, but girls will like it too. A typical but nevertheless enjoyable coming-of-age story set in a fantasy world. Ends off leaving you to want more, and luckily there's more:)
