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.

    Dark and thoughtful

    This series.is.a real departure for Hobb. It is really dark and wrestles with big, ugly issues around race, colonization, and ecology, If you are an Octavia Butler fan, this is for you. If you like dragons and a more conventional narrative, read her next Rainwild series instead.
