Eragon slowly crept closer, keeping the bow ready. All his work of the past three days had let to this moment. He took a last steadying breath and- an explosion shattered the night.
The herd bolted. Eragon lunged forward, racing through the grass as a fiery wind surged past his cheek. He slid to a stop and loosed an arrow at the bounding doe. It missed by a finger’s breadth and hissed into darkness. He cursed and spun around, instinctively nocking another arrow.
Behind him, where the deer had been, smoldered a large circle of grass and trees. Many of the pines stood bare of their needles. The grass outside the charring was flattened. A wisp of smoke curled in the air, carrying a burnt smell. In the center of the blast radius lat a polished blue stone. Mist snaked across the scorched area and swirled insubstantial tendrils over the stone.
Eragon watched for danger for several long minutes, but the only thing that moved was the mist. Cautiously, he released the tension from his bow and moved forward. Moonlight cast him in a pake shadow as he stopped before the stone. He nudged it with an arrow, then jumped back. Nothing happened, so he warily picked it up.
Best parts of Inheritance. Because they are the WTF moments.
He said there will certainly be a fifth book in the Inheritance Cycle (yes, in the cycle. As in, about characters we already know. Possibly a sixth and seventh as well), it won’t be released for years but he’s even started the first draft.
- Said book will involve information about Angela and her history.
- He refused to reveal whether or not Eragon and Arya will get married/have further advances in their relationship, in his words “You’ll have to read book 5 to find out” TROLLINI.
- Things he left intentionally open ended (Murtagh, those two adventurers, etc) will be tied up.
- He already has the title, and apparently we do too. “You’ve heard it, in Inheritance and Brisingr.”
He talked about the many plot plans/drafts he’s got for other books in other genres as well. “Over 400…”
His next series will almost definitely be a sci-fi novel. “Lot’s of lasers, explosions and actiony space ship stuff.”
After years and years of waiting, The Inheritance Cycle is finally complete!
Though probably the timing isn’t right, since I’ll have a test soon, and this book has nearly 1000 pages :P
Even so, having this book has lifted my mood a bit. I was a little upset today. But then, ta daaaah~~
