Eragon and Brom are traveling south. Brom agrees to let Eragon ride Saphira. They fly for hours, and Eragon sees the world the way she sees it for a short time. Brom calls them, and they land. The Ra'zac's tracks have abruptly stopped, and Brom concludes that they left on flying mounts. Eragon finds some enchanted Seithr Oil on the ground. He thinks of an idea: to go to Teirm and search the records of Seithr Oil, to find out where the Ra'zac live. Brom says that the plan is "genius", and that his friend Jeod lives in the city. They ride south.
