Book Three in Inheritance Cycle Announced and Something Else Unexpected

October 30th, 2007 at 5:55 PM (17 years ago) by Matt Freedman

Book Three (name not yet released) of the Inheritance Cycle was announced today. It will be published on September 28, 2008. The Inheritance Cycle’s first 2 books are called Eragon and Eldest.

You may have noticed that I’m calling it the Inheritance Cycle and not the Inheritance Trilogy. This is the interesting part. Along with the announcement of the third book’s release date was a video by, the author, Christopher Paolini.

“I plotted out the Inheritance series as a trilogy nine years ago, when I was fifteen. At that time, I never
imagined I’d write all three books, much less that they would be published” said Paolini. “When I finally
delved into Book Three, it soon became obvious that the remainder of the story was far too big to fit in one
volume. Having spent so long thinking about the series as a trilogy, it was difficult for me to realize that, in
order to be true to my characters and to address all of the plot points and unanswered questions Eragon and
Eldest raised, I needed to split the end of the series into two books.”

Yes, that’s right, a Fourth Book! Paolini also mentioned that a main character will die at the end of Book Three… I wonder who…

Random House also released a press release (pdf) for the announcement.

I’ve read both Eragon and Eldest and have been wondering when Book Three would be coming out. Not for another 11 months, though… Oh well, at least there will be another book after that to!

Oh, and Eragon and Eldest are great books, and I’d recommend anyone to read them!
