on topic. can anyone wait for teh 4th book? its a dreadful series and a big rip-off but i also want to see what happens to saphira and the other two.
and ive read McAffrey and Eragon is basically teh same concept but in a different setting. one in a fantasy realm, another in sapce.
I only read the first book, but found it took the dragon-rider concept from Pern, some of the mentor/student stuff from Eddings and star wars, the sword felt like it should have been a lightsaber, I never even cracked the cover on any of his other books. I felt I could enjoy my diversions better straight from the source instead of what I feel was overhyped fan fiction of a kid's favorite components of a story. Also since I have copies of what I felt were his base stories I don't have to spend the money or borrow a copy to read what I feel was the better story anyways.
