Inheritance (Inheritance #4) by, Christopher Paolini

Publishing House: Alfred A. Knopf
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

It took me about a year to read this book just because the size of it was very daunting. However, last month I picked it up and started reading it I loved this series and this book however it is the last one in a series and the ending made me very mad.

Anyway, I gave this book the rating I did because of really only one reason. Violence. There is a lot of fighting in this book because of the fact that practically the entire population of Alagaësia is at war. As such there are a lot of battles that take place though out the entirety of the book.

Several people are wounded badly and the wounds are described in some detail. The manner in which people are killed is also described at times. There are a few cuss words are used however, the majority of them are in the alternate languages that fill the book.

I really did like the book and the series I just did not like the way it ended for the sake of it was not the way I wanted it to end.
