Description of One Of the main characters: Elva is the young girl who had been cursed by Eragon when she was young. She is very young but has an adult's voice. She saves Nasuda from assassins of Galbatorix.
Whom I like and Why: I like Roran. He is brave. He saves the people of Alagaesia from Galbatorix's men and also from the Urgals. He hides the whole village in Surda with the help of the Varden. He joins with Eragon to save Katrina his wife, whom the Ra’zac took away.
Setting/Theme of the Story: Eragon continues his journey to Ellesmera to get his training as a rider from the elves. Oromis and Gladr train Eragon and Saphira. He comes back to the Varden with Orik to fight Galbatorix. Meanwhile Roran takes the whole of Alagaesia and hides them in Surda. He gets help from Jeod, an old friend of Brom. He loses Katrina to the Ra'zacs. When Eragon fights a war with Galbatorix's men, a new rider emerges. Murtagh had started serving Galbatorix like his father and his dragon's name is Thorn. He tells Eragon a shocking news that they are brothers. Selena was Eragon's and Murtagh's mother. Morzan was their father! Murtagh is older than Eragon. Murtagh takes away Morzan's sword given to Eragon by Brom saying that the sword has to go to the eldest of Morzan's sons, not the youngest. This is the end of Eldest.
