A stunning new collection of stories based in the world of the Inheritance Cycle, continuing the adventures of Eragon.

A wanderer and a cursed child. Spells and magic. And dragons, of course. Welcome back to the world of Alagaesia.

It's been a year since Eragon departed Alagaesia in search of the perfect home to train a new generation of Dragon Riders. Now he is struggling with an endless sea of tasks- constructing a vast dragonhold, guarding dragon eggs and dealing with Urgals and elves. Then a vision from the Eldunari and an exciting legend offer a much-needed distraction and a new perspective.

Three fantastic original stories, interspersed with scenes from Eragon's own unfolding adventure and an excerpt from the memoir of Angela the herbalist, penned by Angela Paolini.

Christopher Paolini's love of fantasy and the natural beauty that surrounds his home in Montana inspired him to begin writing the Inheritance Cycle at fifteen. He became a number one bestselling author at nineteen and spent the next decade immersed in the world of Alagaesia. Also an accomplished artist, Christopher drew the interior art for the books. In his spare time he enjoys sharpening knives, playing video games, lifting heavy things and searching for the perfect leather-bound notebook.
