After Christopher's dramatic work from Eragon, which is now turning into a fabulous movie. Christopher has also written a book called 'Eldest'. Eldest is the next step of Eragon and should not be missed. Eldest has been a big hit especially in the US area, nearly topping the scales with the Harry Potter books.
People have even said that 'Eldest' has been even more popular than the first book 'Eragon'. With every passing page the book shows a vast amount of growing maturity and skill on the part of Christopher Paolini. If you love the tradition of the classic heroic quest of fantasy, with a predictable cast of dwarves, elves, and dragons and even including some imaginatively creepy creatures of evil, this is the book for you.
The land of Alagaesia still suffers under the Empire of the wicked Galbatorix, while Eragon and his dragon Saphira - the last of the riders are the only hope for this imaginary world. Although, Eragon is only young and he has much to learn, when he is sent off to the elven forest city of Ellesmera, where he and Saphira are tutored in magic, battle skills and even the ancient language by a very wise old man. But who is he? With the thump… thump… thump… sound rushing through the forest an unpredictable sight beholds in front of Eragon. What wise powers stand before him?
