Description

The internationally best-selling fantasy sensation is back with brand-new stories set in the world of Eragon and the 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. Now, he is struggling with an endless sea of tasks: constructing a vast dragonhold, wrangling with suppliers, guarding dragon eggs, and dealing with belligerent Urgals and haughty elves. Then a vision from the Eldunarí, unexpected visitors, and an exciting Urgal legend offer a much-needed distraction and 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!

Relish the incomparable imagination of Christopher Paolini in this thrilling new collection of stories based in the world of the Inheritance Cycle.

Not what I was hoping for

This as a good story. However, it's nothing close to what I was expecting.

Gerard Doyle was great as always.

The story itself started great. I enjoyed the "Fork" story, although it was very short. It just wasn't the follow up I had been waiting quite some time for.

not what i was hoping for

super short with next to no insight on main characters. No real conflict. Just meaningless short storys ment to be inspiring but where just a giant let down. i hope it leads to a FULL book.

too short

way too short, feels like the story is not finished when the end comes. I was glad of the new book, but am a bit disappointed

TOO short

pretty much no qualms of the story itself I just thought it was weird that it ended too fast.

I don't like how everything nowdays has to be a reference 2 something previous or an obvious Easter egg to the Future.It felt more like a catch-up letter from an old friend rather than its own thing.

Great quick read!

The only negative feedback I have is that I wish there were more of it. Christopher has grown and his writing has matured with him.

Fantastic read and even more so that it immediately took me back to the world of Alagaesia.

I hope that this brings a demand to write more books and stories.

Thanks Christopher, your writing inspires and entertains, which are a rare combination.

Too many loose ends.

The beginnings of extremely exciting stories that left an extreme amount untold and too many questions unanswered. I would have liked to see it much longer and see how the stories play out rather than have all these new events rattling around my brain. I have so many questions and who knows if and when they will be answered.

Short. Disjointed. A bit confusing.

Per usual, narrator first.
He's good. Not Michael Kramer good, but still good. A nice range of voices and good pacing.

Now, the stories.
Well, first you need to understand that this is a frame story. We're basically seeing a day in Eragon's life in which three different people are relating stories to him.

Hence, we end up hearing about a magical fork (my favorite story by far, even though it is the shortest of the bunch), a witch (term used very loosely, as it's pertaining to Angela and "special" girl Eragon basically created), and a wyrm.

The writing itself is along the same lines as we've come to expect from Paolini (so, not amazing, but nothing to complain about without getting nitpicky). Independent of the others, each story is cohesive and well constructed, if lacking in emotional power.

But for me, the point where the book falls down is the links between the stories.

I think if it had been a true anthology, with firm breaks between stories, it would have gone a long way toward solving the problem.

As it is, however, it reads like it's going somewhere and things are going to tie together, which is misleading because they don't. The only commonalities are the coming back to Eragon between the stories.

And it's confusing because the breaks between the stories are not solid. When chapter two started, I was under the impression it was just a POV switch within a single story, which it isn't. And in the second story (which starts, I believe, in chapter 4), the chapter headings are crazy (it is explained in the frame part of the story, but that doesn't really help it make sense) and it's easy to lose track of where you are and what's going on.

All in all, I think this was a great idea, but should have been done without the frame and preferably with two to three times the number of stories. A three story anthology is a bit of a joke, in my opinion.

In closing, if you're an Eragon enthusiast then you're going to want to read this. But if not then you may as well skip it.

Three Short stories

Each of the three short stories featured in this book show a glimpse into Eragon’s life at his new dragon stronghold plus a story told to him to help alleviate current stresses.

Short stories...
The Fork: A quick glimpse of Murtagh’s life.

The Witch: gives a brief catch up with Angela and Elva, plus Angela’s story.

The Worm: a wonderful dragon story told by Urgals.

I'm sad it was over too soon :-(

The writing was amazing as usual! i loved the tales. I do however wish it was longer. I was really glad to see the Urgals perspective reflected in this book. But After waiting so long for a new book, I was hoping to hear more about Roran and Arya. I also was kind of distracted with the difference in the way the narrator performed the voices of some characters. Saphira's voice is totally different! In the next production I hope he goes back to performing them the way he used to. I also think it would be cool to see some things from the Razak's perspective.

I have missed Eragon

I literally cried at the end of the Eragon series because I didn't want it to end. I wish there would have been a bridge between Inheritance and this book to explain what happened right after the end of Inheritance. I was also disappointed in the short length of this book, I loved the distance and detail that Paolini took in the Eragon series.

It is good to see these characters again.

I did like the book very much for what it was. I do look forward to the next full length novel in the series though.
