“Listen closely and I will tell you two things.

When the time comes and you need a weapon

look under the roots of the Menoa Tree…” 

At the end of Eldest, the second book, Murtagh defeats Eragon and thakes his sword, Zar’roc, as his prize, leaving Eragon weaponless. Feeling distraught, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, fulfill a promise to their masters and return to pay them a visit. While visiting them eragon remembers a prophecy told by the wear-cat, Solembum. Looking under the Menoa tree, Eragon finds the means to make a new, extraordinary sword.


With his new sword, Brisingr, hanging from his hip, Eragon returns to the Varden just in time for the battle of Feinster. In the heat of battle, without warning, Eragon is blinded by a vision of his masters fighting the other evil dragon and rider, Thorn and Murtagh. Right when things start looking bad for them, the vision fades and he is thrown back into reality. The hopeless reality of battle, all the while knowing he cannot help his masters’ fate.


Brisingr is the 3rd book in the Eragon and the Seven Promises series. I would recommend this book to people that like action packed, fiction series. I enjoyed this book because I like novels and this one caught my attention. However, I lost interest at some parts because it gets a bit wordy and repetitive. Over all this was my first series and I enjoyed in immensely.
