Love this series!

I own the books in paper(my dog peed on inheritance!) And read them anytime I need a dragon fix. Christopher Paolini is an absolute genius. I'm telling you this now, if you can't decide if you want to buy it-do a favor for yourself and buy it!

I enjoyed this book, even though Navarre was not my favorite character. He was trying so hard to be the perfect son and perfect soldier son that sometimes what he did was more wrong than right. He also tried so hard to fight the Speck magic that threatened not only to take his soul, but make it impossible to be the perfect son. However, it was an interesting look into a young boy to man's journey. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next book has in store for Navarre.

    THIS BOOK SUCKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

    It's really bad and a complete waste of money. The character suckes, the plot suckes, everything suckes.

    Couldn't finish it

    Most bad stories I can get through, however I had to put this one down. Some things just don't mix well together, oil and water for example. The environmental twist in this story just didn't mix here either. This was the first book I have read by Robin Hobb; I have read that she has some good stories out there, but stay clear of this one.
