Publisher's Summary

Oaths sworn...loyalties tested...forces collide. 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 unimagined sacrifice.
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?

Brisingr

My favorite character in this book has to be the dragon, Saphira. She is portrayed as so caring for Eragon. The bond is immeasurable. I have enjoyed following the two of them through all of their adventures. I look forward to the next book series to see what happens.

Saphira sounds like Grover after puberty

This book is an absolute gem, a must-read for anyone who might enjoy the genre. It has everything, adventure, magic, romance, humor, suspense, surprise -- all of the elements that make this the kind of story you want to read over and over again. The narration is very good, except for one vital flaw. The interpretation of one of the lead characters, Saphira the dragon, is way off base, and it ruins the story. I thought I'd start this audio book from the end and work my way back since I've read the book many times, and thought this would be another way to enjoy it. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Read, read, read the book.

Brilliant!

Another brilliant sequel. I've read all the books and the different voices of the characters brings it to life!

Great book

Would you listen to Brisingr again? Why?

This is the second time I have listened to the series, it is very well read so I find I a joy to listen to it while out and about. As the story unfolds before you, you feel like you are along side the characters in the plights as you are transported in to their world by Christopher Paolini's words

Too long!

The story was too long, I think a lot of it was pointless, could have combined with other books. There were some good parts, and some important events, but I was glad to get to the end of it!
