I finally finished Brisingr. It was a long one, so I’m not surprised that it took me a while to read. I didn’t read every night, but pretty close to it.
“The worth is in the act.
Your worth halts when you surrender the will to change and experience life.
But options are before you.”
~ Saphira the dragon
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I’d get angry with the characters sometimes, or want to cry, or even laughed out loud.
It is the third book, of four, in The Inheritance Series, which is the story of Eragon, his dragon Saphira, and the adventures they have.
“Oaths sworn . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide… Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king? Following the colossal battle against the Empire’s warriors, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.
When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices – choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.” (Amazon blurb)
It is a good read, but I would recommend reading the first two first.
The next book will be…
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood…
As much as I want to continue the Inheritance series, I’m choosing to put it aside for a bit and read a book I got for my birthday. It’s a good time to read it too…we finished watching what was available of the series back in September, and the new season hasn’t started yet.
“In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War. The result is the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women. Offred is one of these, a Handmaid bound to produce children for one of Gilead’s commanders. Deprived of her husband, her child, her freedom, and even her own name, Offred clings to her memories and her will to survive. At once a scathing satire, an ominous warning, and a tour de force of narrative suspense, The Handmaid’s Tale is a modern classic.”
I’m hoping I can answer some questions I have from watching the series…the main one being, what exactly caused the infertility in humans?
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
