As Roran and Arya started to follow, Eragon grabbed Roran by the shoulder and tapped Arya's blade with his own. "Wait." He said.
"What!" Both Arya and Roran demanded in exasperated tones.
"Yes, what?" Saphira asked. "We should not be sitting around and talking when there is sport to be had."
"My father," Eragon exclaimed. "It's not Morzan, it's Brom!"
Eragon consulted with Saphira, and when they were both in agreement, he raised the sword above his head, and cried, "I have made my decision, I dub thee Brisingr!"
“You named your sword Fire? Fire? What kind of a boring name is that? You might as well name your sword 'Blazing Blade' and be done with it. Fire indeed. Humph. Wouldn't you rather have a sword called Sheepbiter or Chrysanthemum Cleaver or something else with imagination?”
“The purpose of life is not to do what we want but what needs to be done.”
“You would be amazed how many magicians have died after being bitten by mad rabbits. It's far more common than you might think."
"The world burns around me, and from the fire, I hear the whispers of minds, and I learn things from those whispers. You hide yourself from me now, but I can still see you, a man of yellow flame with twelve stars floating around your waist and another star, brighter than the others, upon your right hand."
Violence: The story takes place in a time of war, so there's plenty of battles, blood, and death. Those who have a light heart may want to take a little caution.
