The Lovereading4Kids comment
Christopher Paolini can only be described as a precocious find. He began his debut novel, Eragon, the first in The Inheritance trilogy, at 15 and now at only 21, Eldest, the second in the trilogy has been published and with it he has also won the prestigious Quiller Book Prize. Eldest is sweeping epic fantasy at its best, beautiful writing coupled with an extraordinary storyline with immensely memorable and powerful characters. Fantasy aficionados, both teenage and adult will devour this writing and be eager for more. With filmic quality I’m not surprised to hear that a film version was made starring Robert Carlyle, John Malkovich and Jeremy Irons among others.
The fourth title, Inheritance, is coming in time for Christmas 2011.
A 'piece of passion' from the publisher:
On 7th July we were delighted to reissue the first three books in Christopher Paolini's compelling fantasy Inheritance Sequence: Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr with special coloured edges. The novels have been international publishing sensations, featuring dragons, death defying battles and epic conquests, with 49 foreign language editions for Eragon alone, and sales of 25 million copies worldwide. The countdown has now begun to the publication of Inheritance, the fourth and final novel in Christopher's sequence, which will be released on 8th November.
