“My dear Mr Bennet,” said his lady to him one day, “have you heard that the Inheritance trilogy by Mr Christopher Paolini is indeed to extend to four volumes?”
Mr Bennet replied that he had not, for he was not at all interested in the peculiarities of fantasy literature and the writers thereof.
– Apologies to Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice.
Anyway: Christopher Paolini has discovered that his Inheritance story – Eragon… Eldest… – isn’t going to squeeze into three volumes. Therefore, Brisingr, which is due to be published at the end of September this year, is not the final instalment you’ve all been waiting for with baited breath… there’s another one to go after that.
So what’s going to happen in Brisingr? Is Saphira going to find a bloke? Will Nasuada remain the leader of the Varden, or will there be uprisings and overthrowings? Is Murtagh really all bad now and what’s with his dragon? How many more dragons are going to appear out of the woodwork?
We’ll give you a heads up when we’ve placed an order for Brisingr, then you can start reserving to your heart’s content.
