Language: English

  • "[t]he linear plot unfolds one section at a time, like the layers of an onion, leaving the reader wanting to know more." Children's Literature
  • "Suffused with purple prose and faux-archaic language, this patchwork of dialogue, characters and concepts pulled whole cloth from the fantasy canon holds together remarkably well. Dramatic tension is maintained ... though too much time is spent on the details of Eragon's training. Derivative but exciting." Kirkus Reviews
