After producing four chapters of my novel the past couple of days (72% complete, people!!), I decided to take a break and reread some of my favorite parts from one of my most favorite books of all time: Book Two of the Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini, 'Eldest'! This book is, without a doubt, my favorite out of the entire series. I've read the series start-to-finish twice, but I've probably read 'Eldest' at LEAST 10 times. :D As you can see, it's VERY well-loved... Even some of the binding is coming undone! This book inspired my deepest adoration for Roran, and I enjoy reading ALL of Stronghammer's chapters especially!
I also was instantly in love with Ellesmera, Oromis, and Glaedr. Not to mention, the escapades of a dwarf in an elven city. Or his brief adventure flying with Saphira. XD
The dwarven city and the intricate structure of its clans is a degree of complexity I hope to achieve with my writing someday! And, the mysterious dwarven god!? Did we ever learn if it was real!? So compelling!
And, of course... that Burning Plains Battle... Anyway, thought I might give a shoutout to one of the best pieces of literature I've ever read. :) If any of you are looking for an excellent fantasy/adventure series, this one comes highly recommended.
