Greetings and welcome aboard the Orbital Sword. In this episode, David, Scott, and Jim look at Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. As they have worked through the books to this point, it becomes apparent that Paolini’s writing has matured as well as his characters. This one is full of battles that hardly ever slow down as Eragon learns secrets about his own past and his cousin, Roran becomes a fierce warrior who deals out heavy casualties to Galbatorix’s minions. We hope you enjoy this latest edition of the Orbital Sword!
