Read it Forward Read it first. Pass it on! Both efforts fail miserably, but bring Eragon and Saphira closer together. The changes alter his senses, and enhance his abilities, effectively turning him into an elf-human hybrid, as well as healing all of his wounds, scars, and back injury. Reinvigorated, Eragon continues training until he learns that the Empire will soon attack the Varden in Surda.
Afterward he confesses his feelings for Arya who rejects him harshly. Dismayed, he leaves without completing his training, to aid the Varden in battle. Meanwhile, Roran is planning to rescue Katrina.
He decides that the only solution is to join the Varden in Surda, and so he convinces almost the entire village to travel there. The villagers reach Narda, where they pay for barges to sail to Teirm. Roran is stunned that his cousin is a Dragon Rider, and he asks Jeod for help to reach the Varden. Jeod decides to go with them and he gathers a group of his friends to steal a ship called the Dragon Wing.
The villagers are chased by a group of Galbatorix's boats, but they force themselves into the gigantic whirpool, the Boar's eye, so that they can trap the enemy ships. Meanwhile, Eragon arrives at the Varden's camp, who are under attack by an army of one hundred thousand of Galbatorix's soldiers.
A group of Urgals join the Varden, and Eragon is able to repel the opposing army with help from the dwarves' reinforcements. Eventually, a Dragon Rider appears in favor of the Empire. The hostile Dragon Rider kills the dwarf king Hrothgar , and soon begins to fight with Eragon. The Dragon Rider is soon unmasked by Eragon and is revealed to be Murtagh, his old friend.
Murtagh tells Eragon that he was kidnapped and forced into loyalty by Galbatorix after a dragon hatched for him, whom he named Thorn. Murtagh outmatches Eragon, but shows mercy due to their old friendship. Before leaving, Murtagh reveals that Eragon is his brother, and takes Eragon's sword Zar'roc, which he believes to be his inheritance.
Ultimately, Galbatorix's army is forced to retreat due to heavy losses, after the arrival of the dwarves and the villagers of Carvahall and the departure of Murtagh and Thorn. Roran manages to defeat the Twins by bashing them in the heads with his hammer, thus enhancing his title of Roran Stronghammer.
Eldest received generally negative reviews, and it was met with criticism similar to Eragon for its derivative nature. School Library Journal noted that Eldest lacked originality, but would still find reception among fans.
It also acknowledged that themes of Eldest are based generally on the works of other writers. Similar to other reviews, it criticized the long plot and its similarities to The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars , as well as the lack of humor. The review commented that Roran , one of the secondary major characters, had the best part of the book. The main reason of this was for its dull pace.
However, there were also some more positive reviews of Eldest. Bookmarks magazine saw Eldest' s similarity to other works, but said that Eldest displayed more emotional depth than Eragon. Several themes in Eldest have been noted. The reviewer called these themes "age-transcendent". It's my job, then, to attempt to understand why people act, even if it differs from my own point of view or practice, and to present those reasons to the best of my ability.
The actions and beliefs of my characters are not necessarily my own. There are also themes of religion and atheism, the dwarves being highly religious, the elves being atheists, and Eragon, growing up without a religious background but a set of superstitions, wondering if there are higher powers. Eldest falls in the genre of juvenile fiction  and fantasy. Los Angeles Times , while noting that the writing was more mature, criticized the novel for being inconsistent.
An Entertainment Weekly review was negative toward the story because it was slow-paced, while The Washington Post said Eldest needed to be shortened. Kirkus Reviews compared the story to a patchwork of fantasy elements and characters, then concluded that it, despite being derivative, was exciting and held together well.
Whether or not the book will be adapted to film remains a matter of speculation. When asked whether there would be a movie adaptation of Eldest at the premiere of Eragon , Christopher Paolini replied, "I think we'll know after opening weekend. One critic said that 20th Century Fox 's plans to adapt Eldest was " jumping the gun " and that "they will have a tough time convincing anyone but the most die-hard fans to return for another helping.
According to an interview with director Stefen Fangmeier:. That means, given the time frame, it might still be another year before there are actually are scripts for both films and these things can move ahead. I don't know if Fox is waiting to see the revenues the DVD will create. I think they were modestly happy with the worldwide box office.
Fangmeier's comments were made in March , before the October announcement that the trilogy was to be expanded into a four-book cycle. A deluxe version of Eldest called the "Limited Edition" was released on September 26, Eldest has been published in forty-one countries,  several translations from English into different languages have been made.
Translations for languages such as Spanish ,  Portuguese ,  and Serbian have appeared. An omnibus of Eragon and Eldest was published on July 8, and included never-before-seen manuscripts by Christopher Paolini.
