I have loved this series and all of the characters from the first book. In a way I'm very happy with the ending but at the same time there are aspects that were soooo disappointing as they didn't not get resolved. Which is why this book only gets 4 stars. In all honesty much of the ending of this book was absolutely heart wrenching. I do look forward to Mr. Paolini continuing with the world he has built but I do hope he will mention some of my favorite characters from this series when he does!
