Default Re: Who is Elizabeth Kerner?

I enjoyed the first book immensely. Kerner does some fabulous world-building, has some very original ideas for dragons---Brisingr totally ripped off the soulgem idea---and the religion/demon aspect added good flavor.

The only thing I can say I disliked was that the ending was very Dues Ex Machina. Solutions appear out of nowhere, everyone gets everything they want, and the only explanation is literally the Gods intervened. with such strong characters, I had really hoped that they would do it on their own instead of divine beings rescuing them.
