Have you been waiting for the third instalment of the Eragon series by Christopher Paolini? Your wait is over as it is now available for all to read.
Regarding Brisingr and the choice of name, Paolini has said:
Brisingr is one of the first words I thought of for this title, and it’s always felt right to me. […] As the first ancient-language word that Eragon learns, it has held particular significance for his legacy as a Dragon Rider. In this new book, it will be revealed to be even more meaningful than even Eragon could have known.
The word ‘Brisingr’ means ‘fire’ in the ancient language of the elves of Alagaësia that all magic is based on.

The Brisingr story became so long that Paolini has decided that the Inheritance Trilogy shoudl now become a series of four – so there will still be one book to go. For all lovers of magic, dragons, and fantasy quests this one is for you.
But is it as good as Eragon and Eldest? What do you think?
