    5.) Through his heart was thumping hard and fast and his palms were slick with sweat, Roran strove to maintain a calm demeanor. If his gambit was to have the slightest chance of success, he had to comport himself with an air of unbreakable confidence, regardless of his actual emotions. Pg. 149
    I choose this passage because Roran as you may already know Is a strong and collected warrior. When faced with confrontation or an encounter witch was against the odds for him he always has kept a strong demeanor about himself. As in the 4th passage above I choose this one to compare to real life situations, if you or someone you know is under stress or in a bad situation in life whether it be a rut in your life or just homework your catching up that is behind don't loose your head keep a calm collective manor about yourself and review your situation plan out different strategies and project them to the best of your ability. In the end things will turn out good it is just a manor of keeping your wits about you.
    Themes:
    Theme 1: One theme I found In the book of Inheritance would be, Good v. Evil. Good v. Evil is a classic theme found in many books, movies, real life situations and countless others. I believe this theme is in Inheritance because with the Varden being the good and Galbatorix and his Empire being the evil The two are continually fighting and struggling against each other to gain dominance and the upper hand over the other to control the land of Alagasia. The Varden fight for Freedom and equality among the races of dwarfs, Elves, and Humans while the Empire or Galbatorix seeks to destroy and control every vast corner amoung his sights of vision killing any who oppose him.
    Theme 2: The second theme I found among the book of Inheritance would be Forbidden love. As you read throughout the book you will find that Eragon is strongly affectionate for one of his Elf companions named Arya. Arya is a eleven princess Eragon has met in book one of "Eragon" through out the series you find out Eragons feelings towards her are strong as they keep growing thought out the books, he has told her this multiple times his feelings towards her but Arya cannot as she is over a hundred years older then he will ever be. Arya also travels as an ambassador for her elven race as well as the war among the races witch would stop her and Eragon from becoming something more.
    ...
    Murtagh: Murtagh is Eragons half brother, his father Morzan helped Galbatorix destroy the Riders of Old. He Is shorter and stockier then Eragon being the better the swordsman, He is the newest rider of the land with his red dragon "Thorn". Murtagh was forced in the ancient language to obey and serve Galbatorix or face the death of him and his dragon, he now faces Eragon and the Varden against his will.
    Nasuada: Being Slime and slender but still stronger them most of her own warriors is the leader of the Varden a rebellion that goes against the Empire. Nasuada is forceful, brave, and controlling as she has to be for over the past months she has fought Galbatorix and his armies. She is also a fair ruler hearing everyone takes an not simply doing what she pleases as some corrupt leaders do.

    Setting:
    The setting In the book of Inheritance takes place in the land of Alagaesia, Alagaesia is a land composed of areas such as the mast forest of the Spine, the Hardic Desert, Surda, and many other such as Du Weldenvarden or the Beor Mountains home of the dwarfs. This is a fictional world there is no electricity much similar to that of the middle ages where magic, swords and castles are a common presence.

    Analysis:
    My opinion and analysis of this book is, it is a rely good read if your one who enjoys fantasy and adventure in your reading. It has a great stroyline that grips the reader that will have you finding yourself staying up wondering what will happen next. As it takes you threw the epic battles that enrage across the wa rtorn land of Alagasia to the mysic wonders of Vranguard the Riders city island or old, To the far reaches of the towering Beor Mountains you will be sure to find yourself leaning over the edge griping the book wanting to know what is going to happen next.

    Glendr- Glendr is a riders dragon Named Orimis one of the last riders before Eragon was chosen Glendr is a golden dragon and he is the size of a small mountain and his frond foreleg had been severed during a battle before the riders were attacked. Orimis was the master of brom (Eragons father). In the book glendr is in the form of an Eldunari( an saphirical orb contained inside the chest of a dragon which holds its magical ability and and his conscious). Glendr seperated his Eldunari from his body willingly in the last book after his rider died and he almost went mad with sadness and longing.
    Saphira- Saphira is Eragons dragon she is a medium sized dragon with beautiful sapphire scales and bright white ivory spikes running down the spine of her back down to the tip of her tail. She is the last living female dragon.
    Angela- Angela is a herbaligist Eragon met in the city of Tierm when he first set out on his journey as a dragon rider. She is the one who told Eragon his future and was suprised to find one part of it was he was going to leave the land to never return again, and in the end he realizes that you cant fight your future. Angela is a beautiful woman that travels all aroung the land meeting new people and making new enemy's Grimmr halfpaw being one of them. Nobody really knows for sure how old Angela is she drinks he own potions to retain a young look. The only one who may know her true age is her werecat Solemnbum.
    Solmnbum- Solmnbum is a werecat that Eragon met in the beginning of the first book when he just began his travels as a dragon rider.
    A werecat is a race of half cat half humans that can change form on demand they useually take the form of a teenage girl/boy aroung the age of 14

    3. He did not bother to hide his smile; he knew she would sense his amusement. “You shouldn’t be so upset. It wasn’t very big.” Reaching out, he traced the diamond-shaped hole on the left side of her snout, where the object of her consternation had so recently been ensconced. The gap in her sparkling armor was no larger than the end of his thumb and about an inch deep. At the bottom of it, her leathery blue hide was visible.
    I chose this passage because i thought it was a little funny that Eragons dragon Saphira had lost a scale on her nose and was very self-conscious of it being missing and convinced herself that it would not grow back. Never mind the fact that she believed that without it she was ugly and not as a proper dragon should be.
    4. When he spoke, his voice was low, rich, and commanding. Any bard who possessed such a mellifluous instrument would have his name praised throughout the land as a master of masters. The sound of it caused her skin to prickle; his words seemed to wash over her like warm waves of water, caressing her, beguiling her, binding her. Listening to him, she realized, was as perilous as listening to Elva.
    I chose this passage because it gave very a commendable description of the malevolent King Galbritorix. I really liked the way they described his voice as they did it gives a good enough description to where you feel like you can almost hear his voice in your head every time he goes to talk.

    4.) Fortunately, Glaedr made some allowances for Eragon's condition, although, as he said, "You must be ready to defend your innermost self at any given moment, even when you are sleeping. It may very well be that you will end up facing Galbatorix or Murtagh when you are as exhausted as you are now. Pg. 246
    Inside of this passage you learn about Eragon, as tired and exhausted as he is, his mentor Glaedr (a former dragon, now deceased having his spirit guide Eragon and Saphira) teaches him that when you are at your weakest that is when your enemy will strike so you have to always be prepared for the unexspected. This is not only a part of advice for Ergaon in the book but also for in reality, as In life you cant simply give up but fight for what is yours and always be prepared for the surprises of life.

    Book Review
    It has been a year after the events of the surgeon and Jane Rizzoli is still haunted by the after effects from the attack by Warren Hoyt. Her hands still show the scars, and he still in her dreams. There is no time to dwell on it when she is called to a horrific crime scene in a better Boston neighborhood, where a man's throat had been slit and look like he had been forced to watch his wife be raped. The wife is missing, but some of the evidence at the scene unbelievably looks like the surgeon's handiwork. This is impossible because Hoyt is rotting in jail, but there was enough difference that the perp is obviously someone else, although the similarities are jarring did Warren Hoyt have an apprentice? Things go from bad to worse as Jane takes the lead in the case, despite the FBI showing up. Detective Rizzoli does not trust him, but can she trust herself either especially when Warren Hoyt escapes from jail. Will Hoyt and the apprentice team up, and wreak havoc in her life? And race against time, and sh has to figure out what will go on before they come after her.

    In my opinion the themes of the book are independency and maturity.The main character Chappie goes through a lot of changes and eye opening experiences during a certain period in his life. There is a big difference between the Chappie in the beginning of the book and the Chappie at the end of the book.
    Setting-two settings take place in the book. One is a teenage wasteland in New York, the other is a sunny paridas in Jamacia.
    Review- Although the author keeps you guessing what is going to happen to Chappie on every incounter, i found myself not really caring what happened to Chappie one way or another because I did not feel the author did a good enough job making me feel kinected to the characters.
