What's Elizabeth Reading? Inheritance

Today I'd like to introduce a new reader to The Deliverers blog. Elizabeth is a 7th grader who really loves to read. She's a friend of our whole family, and she asked if she could talk about what she's reading from time to time. I said sure, why not? Welcome Elizabeth! The more the merrier!

Elizabeth has been reading Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. Let's find out what she thought about it.

Here's what Elizabeth says the book is about.

"Inheritance is the third book in The Inheritance Cycle. Galvatorix took over Alagaesia and he's a corrupt ruler. He killed all the Dragon Riders except one who went into hiding. He trains a new Dragon Rider, Eragon. When Inheritance begins, the Varden are attacking all the cities in  Alagaesia  that have been taken over by Galvatorix. They're trying to kill him.

"Eragon is holding the Varden together. He's a fully trained Dragon Rider by now, and he becomes their leader. He is planning the attack with the help of other members of the Varden. He's also on the front lines fighting.

"In the story, each chapter switches back and forth from Eragon, who is leading all the fantasy creatures, to Eragon's cousin Roran, who is a coleader of the Vardin. He leads the regular people like us. These two sides of the story were really cool and interesting."

What did you like best about the book?

"The part I liked best was how Christopher Paolini described how it felt when Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, felt when they flew together. I could almost feel what it felt like to be flying like that."

Was there anything Elizabeth didn't like about the book?

"I really couldn't find any flaws in it. I really liked the book."

So, how does Elizabeth rate Inheritance by Christopher Paolini?

She gives it five out of five blue dragons.
