SPOILER ALERT - Fairly warned be ye, fanboys!
You are not seriously telling me that they chose to name it "The inheritance" in the original language when they could just as easily have called it "The legacy", which at least I think sounds so much better? Argh!
Anyways, the first two books were okay... Though the first was an utter and complete Star Wars rip-off. I mean, basically, it was the exact same thing in a fantasy world. Boy meets mysterious old man that belongs to extinct order, his uncle is killed, he goes out with the old man, the old man is killed, he has to rescue princess from fortress of death, secret underground rebels who are against evil empire... I could go on, but I digress. It was so painstakingly obvious.
Anyways, as compelling as, at least the second book was, the thirde was just... You know, he could have left out half the book and no one would notice. The first half was just one - long - boring - talk. They did nothing but talk. And it was alle completely meaningless. Had they talked about something important, like I do not know, the history of the dragon riders, then I might be interested. Or something more about the child that was not a child. But even her thoughts and emotions were not very well explained. It was utterly worthless and a complete waste of time. And the thing about his sword bursting into flames whenever he says its name is so incredibly cheesy that I facepalmed the first time I saw it. My god.
All in all, I would probably give each book its own grade, based on these things:
The Eldest: 4/5.
Overall average: 3/5.
