Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Eragon was dull, Eldest was okay, and Brisingr was entertaining. This is my favorite book in the Inheritance Cycle so far and hopefully the last book will be even better.
Paolini's vocabulary is put to good use. He likes to make sure every chapter has a word that you've forgotten existed. Each character has their own burdens in this book and Paolini does a good job weaving them in and out of each other. The pacing of this book is far better than when he began the Cycle, but still needs some polishing and some chapters were unnecessary and should have went to the cutting room floor. As always, Paolini gives the book a exciting ending leaving ready for the next book.
