Description

Relish the incomparable imagination of Christopher Paolini in this thrilling collection of stories based in the world of Eragon and the internationally bestselling Inheritance Cycle.

A wanderer and a cursed child. Spells and magic. And dragons, of course. Welcome back to the world of Alagaësia.
It's been a year since Eragon departed Alagaësia in search of the perfect home to train a new generation of Dragon Riders. When a vision from the Eldunarí, unexpected visitors, and an exciting Urgal legend surface, Eragon is faced with a much-needed distraction that may lead to a new perspective.

This volume features three original stories set in Alagaësia, interspersed with scenes from Eragon's own unfolding adventure. Included is an excerpt from the memoir of the unforgettable witch and fortune-teller Angela the herbalist . . . penned by Angela Paolini, the inspiration for the character, herself!

Also includes four new pieces of original art by the author.

"Christopher Paolini is a true rarity." --The Washington Post

    Can I please recommend rewriting this series in Arya's perspective. I get that it would take forever but just a thought.😇

    All I hope is that you return once again to the world of Alagaësia! Maybe you’ll write that full size novel you mentioned 😁

    I enjoyed this book very much. I have read the inheritance cycle and this definitely adds to the experience. I really enjoyed the ending of Urgals story it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you!

    Maybe just a touch overpriced for the length, which is why I knocked a star off, but I loved it still. Hopefully a full length novel is coming!
  • Incoherent Hodgepodge

    An incoherent hodgepodge—not worth the read and does not live up to Paolini’s previous works. Terrible.
  • MORE!!!

    Really loved getting back into this world after so long, really solid writing and I loved the new characters. I wish it would have been longer seeing as it only took about 2 hours to read, but I understand that C.P didn't intend for these stories to come together so that makes sense. I'd say it's worth buying if you really enjoyed the Inheritance Cycle.
