Book in a Series - Inheritance Cycle

Don't you hate it when you are reading a book and it's part of a book series and you have to wait FOREVER for the next book to come out.  Then you get the next book and you can't remember where it left off?  Well I'm going to summarize a book in a series that I've read so that when I get the next book I can look at my summary and know what happened.  Warning, the following contains spoilers!

Inheritance Cycle
Brisingr - Christopher Paolini

Inheritance - 11/08/11

The book begins with Eragon, Saphira and Roran rescuing Katrina.  They go back to the Varden and we find out Katrina is pregnant with Roran's baby and they get married.  During the ceremony they get attacked and Murtagh and his dragon, Thorn come.  They end up fleeing.

Eragon has to attend a Dwarf King election.  A clan tries to assassinate Eragon but Orik exiles them and then he is elected King.

They then return to Ellesmera to finish training with Oromis and his dragon, Glaedr.  There he finds out that Brom is his real father.  He also finds out that the source of Galbatorix's power is the Eldunarya (heart of hearts).  The holder is able to communicate with or draw energy from the dragon it belongs to even if the dragon is dead.  Eragon also gets a new sword, which he names Brisingr.  Before they depart again Glaedr gives them his Eldunari.

Roran is fighting with the military and he is sent to target a convoy of supply wagons.  Roran takes command and brings a victory to the Varden.  Despite what he did he is charged with insubordination and is flogged as a punishment.  Then Nasuada promotes him to Commander.

During another battle, Eragon and Arya find some magicians trying to create a Shade.  While he is trying to kill the magicians he gets a vision through Glaedr's Eldunari that shows Oromis and Murtagh fighting.  Then he sees Murtagh getting possessed by Galbatorix and he kills Oromis and Glaedr.  The magicians still are able to create a shade but Arya and Eragon manage to kill it.  After the fighting stops, Nasuada tells Eragon that the Varden is planning to invade the Empire.
