New magic and new threats take flight in the second book of the Inheritance Cycle, perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings! This New York Times bestselling series has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation. 

Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix. Now Eragon must travel to Ellésmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . .

Features interlocking art that reveals an image across the spines of all four books! And don’t miss the most recent book set in Eragon's world, The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia!

  • Beautiful

    By LuisAOquendo
    This book tells a very well a woven story and I absolutely loved it. Chris's writing really lets your imagination go wild (and make you want to punch whoever made the Eragon movie) It is a must for fans of adventure. I recommend you read Eragon before for the best experience
  • Cool

    I was sad when Brom died in the first one but I simply loved the second one! Even when Brom died it was still a very great book! I recommend this book for readers 3rd grade and up.
