New Look at the Brisingr Deluxe Edition Cover

Thanks to Amazon, we now have a new look at the cover and spine of the Deluxe Edition of Brisingr, which releases on October 23, 2009! The jacket design is similar to the Eldest Limited Edition, with the cover art being outlined in gold trim and the spine of the book sporting a golden design and the “Deluxe Edition” title.

  • A guide to dwarf runes, written by Christopher Paolini
  • The book cover (shown on the book jacket image) and book spine will contain areas of golden foil.

You can ensure you get one of the first copies of the Brisingr Deluxe Edition by pre-ordering your copy through for $19.79 (over $10 in savings!). Remember, you won’t find any of the exclusive content in the Brisingr Deluxe Edition anywhere else!

  • SilverSanctuary

    i really really want the deluxe edition but Im wondering if i should start saving my money for the guide to alagaesia, which i really really want as well. So, birthday money and babysitting money are going directly into that fund!

  • TheSeeker

    I’m reluctant to buy it, just in case a huge awesome set comes out after book 4 that has all that the past three deluxe edition books has, but looks even better.

  • dramurkopa5

  • CaptainHollyShort

    Wait, so there’s no sneak peak of book 4 in it?? Or am I missing something?? MUST… HAVE… BOOk… FOUR!!!!!!!!


    Its great!^.^

  • Jager

    Why don’t they release the deluxe editions at the same time as the original!?!?! I’d be happy to pay a higher price then the normal copy at that time. But having to pay for another whole copy of the book at a later date to get the extras you haven’t got..that’s really low.

    If it glows, does that mean that there’s an eldunari inside? 😉
