The Siege of Dras-Leona was one of the last battles of the Rider War. After a lengthy stalemate, Jeod Longshanks found a hidden tunnel into the city used by Angela, Eragon, Arya, Wyrden, and Solembum. After slaying the High Priest of Helgrind, the surviving team members were able to open the gate. The Varden met resistance from soldiers, the Laughing Dead, magicians, Murtagh, and Thorn. The siege ended after Thorn was injured and had to retire from the field.
