OATHS SWORN . . . loyalties tested . . . forces
The spectacular third novel in the phenomenally
successful Inheritance Cycle
from this worldwide bestselling author.
Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death
await readers as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden
while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist
him to his own purposes. Rich with a thoughtful
examination of Eragon's maturing psyche,
Brisingr explores how Eragon must come to
terms with his role as a leader and the moral
obligations that weigh heavily upon his young shoulders
as a Dragon Rider.
Following the colossal battle against the Empire's
warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon,
Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still
there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as
Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he
may not be able to keep.
First is Eragon’s oath to his cousin Roran: to help
rescue Roran’s beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix’s
clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too.
The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and
strength—as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest
claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner,
Eragon must make choices— choices that take him across
the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to
Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny.
Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and
defeat the king?
