SERIES REVIEW: Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini (Spoiler Free!)
The author tells EW about collaborating with his sister, giving a different take on dragons, and returning to the fictional land he created as a teenager. I kept daydreaming like, what are the characters up to? What are they doing? All sorts of other story ideas popped up as a result. Some of those were suitable for book-length projects, but some of them were smaller and self-contained, which is how we ended up with The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm. At one point after Inheritance , Murtagh enchanted a fork to be as deadly as any sword.
Christopher Paolini has consistently kept fans up to date on his current and future projects. The author sees the book as a continuation of the same story, heavily influenced by the events of the Cycle, but featuring new main characters. This new book is a standalone story narrated by Eragon and featuring three original short stories. Familiar faces, such as Eragon, Saphira, and Murtagh will make a return! Eragon, Saphira, and Nasuada will not return as main characters. However, Christopher still sees the book as a continuation of the same story, being heavily influenced by the events of the Cycle. The entire book is already plotted out and has been since the conclusion of the Cycle.
He lives in Paradise Valley, Montana , where he wrote his first book. Homeschooled for the duration of his education, Paolini graduated from high school at the age of 15 through a set of accredited correspondence courses from the American School of Correspondence in Lansing, Illinois. To promote the book, Paolini toured over schools and libraries, discussing reading and writing, all the while dressed in "a medieval costume of red shirt, billowy black pants, lace-up boots, and a jaunty black cap. In mid, the stepson of author Carl Hiaasen found Eragon in a bookstore and loved it; this led to Hiaasen bringing it to the attention of his publisher, Alfred A. The second edition of Eragon was published by Knopf in August
