In the tradition of classic epic fantasy, Eldest takes readers on a grand adventure with dragons, dwarves, elves,
humans, and assorted evil beasties. When the unlikely farm boy Eragon discovers he is destined to be a legendary dragon
rider, his life becomes much more interesting and infinitely more dangerous. In this second book in the
Inheritance Trilogy, Eragon continues his training among dwarves and elves to gain those skills
and allies he will need to defeat the cruel King Galbatorix. Narrator Gerard Doyle brings a host of characters
to life, especially Saphira, the enigmatic dragon. Although this book is regarded as a young adult title,
fantasy lovers of all ages will thoroughly enjoy the trials and triumphs of Eragon and Saphira.
