Fans of Christopher Paolini have had an agonising wait to re-enter his dragon-dwelling world of Alagaësia. Now the author is back with a new sequence of stories widening the boundaries of the realm. Set shortly after the conclusion of his Inhertance Cycle, there’s a welcome return of familiar characters and some tantalising new threads that leave the path open for future tales to come.
A wanderer and a cursed child.
Spells and magic.
And dragons, of course.
Welcome back to the world of Christopher Paolini's 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!
