    Newsletter Eragon 25 may

    This is a newsletter from Christopher Paolini, the Writer of the eragon books..


    Kvetha Fricya! Greetings Friends, and a very belated Happy New Year!

    I know that it's been months since my last newsletter, but I wanted to tell you that I've been hard at work and think about you, my readers, daily.

    The holidays were unusually busy. Most years, my family and I spend the time quietly at home, but this year several friends came to visit. We shared long conversations, great food, and a special outing to the Museum of the Rockiesbetter known as dinosaur central.

    Since the New Year, I've been working with renewed determination to finish the manuscript of Book Four. The story is unfolding much as I've always imagined, but, as usual, I find myself adding scenes I hadn't anticipated when I plotted out the book. Although it's taking me longer than I'd hoped to get my vision on the page, I think it's worth it. This is going to be the most exciting and action-packed book of the entire series.

    Last month I watched the Doctor Who specials from last year. Wow! For those of you who follow the travels of the Doctor, you may have caught a reference to him in Brisingr. This year brings a new actor to the role of Doctor, and I look forward to seeing how he portrays him. He has a big scarf to fill.

    I recently spoke with John Jude Palencar, the cover artist for the Inheritance series. He told me that he's been painting the green dragon for the cover of the fourth book. I can't wait to see it! John is immensely talented, and I always enjoy seeing how he interprets the creatures from my world.

    This is going to be a newsworthy year for the Inheritance cycle, with lots of big announcements coming up. And I'm excited to tell you that the Brisingr paperback is now in stores. As always, Alagaesia.com and Shurtugal.com will post the latest developments.

    Now, back to the book for me. At the moment, I'm in the middle of a really interesting section. It contains a one-sided game of knucklebones, an evil assassin, bags of flour, a water-born battering ram, streets lined with lead, a knife in the back, and the death of a character.

    Yes, I'm killing someone off. Horrible, isn't it?

    May your swords stay sharp!

    Quite disappointing. =/ At this point, everything he says is only going to get me more restless for book four. The only thing that I'd actually like to hear until book four actually comes back is perhaps a title and an approximated release date. =/ Anything else is just getting me more excited lol. The whole killing people off thing is kind of obvious lol. If this is the last book, then if everyone was to stay alive then I would be quite disappointed in Chris lol.

    Thanks though ^^.

    Graag gedaan It seems like CP is taking his time writing book 4.. I can't wait!, It's been ages when brisingr was released. What also crossed my mind was that there is so many things that needs to happen in the story and I don't think it will all fit in just one book. I hope there's going to be a book 5!! That would be awesome

    Nah, I don't think that a book 5 would be a good thing. The series is awesome, all of them are my favorite books so far, but a book 5 would just be dragging it on, and he'd have to add a bunch of unnecessary stuff just to fill the pages. I doubt that he'll do something like he did with Brisingr and start going double the length of what the book was meant to be and continue for a book four, if he goes over where he wants to be, then it probably won't be enough to have enough of a basis for a fifth book. It'll just be dragging the series on. If anything else, he should end the Inheritance Cycle here and then make a new series based off of it with a different plot, but not a book 5.

    I agree, there shouldn't be a Book 5. I really can't wait for Book 4...I think it might be called Empire?

    There hasn't been released an official title yet, though Empire really sucks.

    No, I know there hasn't been an official title yet, I was just saying, a lot of the other sites about Book 4 says the title MIGHT be Empire.

    I cant wait for book four it should be awesome :D I'm also quite looking forward to seeing the new cover art.

    There won't be a book 5 because at the end of Brisingr it says " The series will continue and conclude in book four" Unless of course he has changed his pland but there probably won't be a book five.
