  • GlaedrVSThorn

    @Finieral (Guest):

    If there was a fight between Glaedr and Thorn Thorn would win just because he is stronger…but if it was a battle of wits um Glaedr would of course win…I wish Brom was still in the stories he could sort every thing out i believe beside arsihart he is the smartest charecter to be in Eragon

    @darkblade (Guest):

    It is a give away of a signed brisngr book from christopher paolini his self.

  • LaLaLander

    What? That was the last round? What about people (myself being among them) didn\\\’t know about Shur\\\’tugal until after April something-or-other!

  • bookluver

    darn, too late!

  • darkblade


    what is it:

  • Hawkeye

    Shouldn’t this be over by now?

  • CursedSight33

    Naethainael i have just recently finished reading Brisingr again and while reading that part i came up with the same question. It seems odd that this has not been discussed elsewhere either. I do believe that you have found either a mistake or something that CP needs to explain. Put it up for question on the next Q&A for i certainly will as well.

  • Samy

    I want to win this, im a fan of the Eragon series

  • Tulkas

    I bought the book too.

  • Alice

    Luke23– I can tell you for a fact that I don’t have any sort of entitlement attitude. And stating facts doesn’t make me childish. Obviously only a few people can win. I think it’s great some people like the suspenseful waiting and anticipation. If that’s what you like, fabulous, go join. But I prefer to buy the books, and I have and do. I’m sorry if it’s offensive in your opinion if I decide to ” support the author I love” by simply spending my money on the books rather than participating in contests.

  • Evarinya

    Go Luke23.
    I agree., that rhymed. 😀

  • Luke23

    WOW stop complaining. The point of these drawings is a lot of people enter and a few lucky ones win. If you win, great! If not, try again next time. Don’t don’t post comments complaining about the odds of winning. You come off sounding like you think you deserve to win which is childish. Or better yet, go out and buy the book and support the author who’s writing you claim to love so much. No one wants to see you complain about something so unimportant

  • Nigtfuryrider

    You know…. it is easier to just go to a book store and buy them yourself; that’s why I don’t enter stuff like this.

  • Bob

    That’s not really getting into the spirit!

    The chances aren’t that low…! (Can’t win if you never play!)

  • Alice

    To bad Tulkas, I didn’t even enter because I never win. When there are so many people the chances are low.

  • Naethainael

    I know this probably isn’t the best place to post this . . .

    But there is a hole is the one of the events that transpired in Brisingr that I cant seem to figure out.

    Near the end you, when the magicians are summoning the shade, Eragon is slashing at the them but it is doing no damage because of their wards. How is this possible if Eragon is wielding Brisingr?

    The Magicians would have no way of previously knowing that he had a riders blade. And even if they did how would they have made a ward to prevent its magical abilities? Are there such wards? And if there are why didn’t Oromis teach these ward to Eragon, when he knew fully well that Murtagh wields Zar’roc and that Galborix is most likely to wield a riders blade also?

    Did I find a screw up?

  • AngelaLaLonde

    When is the last book gonna finally come out, my husband, children and myself can\’t wait to see what happens next. They were so good we are getting ready to read them again over the summer so it is fresh in our minds when the last one is available. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the world.

  • Tulkas

    Well, then, I guess I didn’t win… pity…

  • Chris

    I mean, yeah, we notify them when we choose them.

  • kymfused

    have the winners been notified yet??

  • Chris

    The Q&A will be posted as soon as we get it…have patience.

  • Evarinya

    Don’t you just hate it when it does that?? X_X

  • Mordor

    Evarinya, it did that to me. xP

    Meh. I never win. Dx

    Yes, I don’t buy book after book since I’m not employeed. I have the paperback Eragon and Eldest in hardcover. My sister has Brisingr in hardcover and the first two in paperback. That’s already, like, more than fifty US dollars we’ve given to CP, if my calucations are correct. (US money…xP)

  • littlepans


  • Evarinya

    Awesome. Thanks staff!

  • InheritenceRules

    when does the fifth round end? i totally love these books and i wanted to get mine signed and i didnt know about it untill today!!

  • Chris

    Winners have been chosen…

  • powerful

    I hope I will finally win something on this website. 😉

  • Alice

    Though it’s fun to have more people able to enter, the more that do, the harder it will be to win. The more people in the contest, the lower percentage rate there is for winning. I personally would rather have less people if it meant I had a better chance of winning.

  • Bob

    I don’t see why you’re complaining that you can still enter!Gives more people time to register for it! More people get a chance to win!

    Makes everyone happier!

  • littlepans

    should this not be closed by now, lol. Although, i would love the guide.

  • IBelieve

    I back the Q&A statement, last we heard it was sent out, but that was awhile back. The dang sneak peek caused a month long delay.

  • Commentator

    The “monthly” Q&A with C.P.????

  • Tulkas

    They could at least post the usernames of whoever wins… but they don’t know the corresponding usernames, and some people don’t have usernames…

  • Evarinya

    I think that is confidential. They aren’t allowed to show the names.

  • Smoke

    Who has won the last few rounds? You should post the winners, that would be cool.

  • Evarinya

    Oh sure, NOW it works 😛

  • Evarinya

    Is it strange if your computer says that your not logged in when you are?

  • Davis

    shouldn’t the round summisions be closed already

  • XPrettyBulletX

    Being that alot of the fans are teens, and Young adults, and in this economy, with all the lay offs… some of us cant afford to keep buying book after book, for the sake of collecting…..Lucky for you Chris you have a desent job, as well as CP… its not like some of us are trying to cheat any one out of money… but we want to eat too… Get me? (still going to by Book 4, just not all versions of book 4)

  • Chris

    You should see my collection… 😛

  • IBelieve

    I haven’t read the chapter anyways, don’t want to add to the eagerness of book 4, which I will buy. Anways, was just here checking if Mike posted a early morning posting, and hoping it was a Q&A, ahaha.

  • Ganon:RiderofArgorok

    Hehe, support Paolini :). I would in all honesty, but he’s gotta be worth a fair bit already with the Inheritance Cycle. He’s gotta be living a pretty comfortable life now. Whereas I get £100 every two weeks on job seekers allowance. So, I ask you, who needs my money more? Especially when I’ve got the normal hardback and the deluxe or Brisingr? The hardback of Eragon and the hardback and deluxe Eldests, and I will buy Book 4 nd Book 4 deluxe? I think that with all of that I have supported him enough to not feel bad about reading the chapter on amazon :).
    P.S. That wasn’t supposed to sound nasty :).

  • Chris

    Not technically, I’m speaking of another one that is being linked to. Someone typed the chapter by hand and posted it. The Amazon one is legal because you’re allowed to show a preview of a whole work like that…If you notice, you can’t read the whole book.

    You should just go buy the paperback version of Brisingr and support Christopher in my opinion though. 🙂

  • IBelieve

    The amazon one is illegal?

  • Chris

    If you’re referring to that link to the chapter that keeps popping up, I delete the posts and ban the people who post it. It’s illegal.

  • PadfootUnewraithSlayer

    Where did the thing about the chapter go???

  • Alice

    Francie- Not only is it for legal reasons, but it is also because of costs. It would be extremely expensive to publish all of his books in every single country. Maybe you could order it off of the internet?

    And I’m always up late at night. Or I guess early morning. hahahha

  • Chris

    Mike does most of his work in the middle of the night, haha

  • Mordor

    Entered :3

    Hey, I stay up late too xD

  • Oneofthemany

    Just wondering why you posted this at 2 a.m. ? Apparently you like what you do…

  • Daniel

    I don’t know why I enter these. I’ve been coming here for almost 5 years and I’ve never won a contest. Oh well. xD

  • Tulkas

    Francine- It’s for legal reasons.

  • Saphira&ThornForeva

    omg i just finished reading the chapter in brisingr were eragon finds out that Brom is his father! i was so excited! im glad it wasnt morzan

    i need the 4th book to come out and i checked the book4 page and it doesnt say anything!! 🙁

  • IBelieve

    Mike, any update on the Q&A? How long’s it usually take CP to reply anyways? I’d awesome harder questions take him longer, though I don’t remember which are being asked right now.

  • Andrea

    It would be so cool to win, but I doubt I will…

  • JonathanHughes

    i probbaly wont win i never win anything but hey its fun to try who knows mabye i will win?

  • Francine

    Why do I have to live in US or Canada to participate? I live in Brazil, and Eragon’s Guide to Alagaesia is not going to be published here! Maybe the taxes to send a book to Brasil are a little expansive (I’m not sure) but I could pay for it, and I know other people would pay too. I’m not complaining, I’m just suggesting that next time foreign readers of this site and Paolini’s work would love to have the chance to participate. 😉


  • Abby

    Wait so me and my sister can’t both enter the contest since we share the computer? Are both of us disqualified or just one of us?

  • Bris

    I so hope I win. I absolutly live all things having to do with The Inheritence series.

  • Mike

    You cannot enter more than once per computer. We automatically block that.

    Reminder: this isn’t the place to talk about Book 4. There’s already a few news posts on the front page to do that. Use those.

  • Firestone

    Of course, everyone, we cannot make an excerpt or make a release date. It’s not up to us, ya see?

  • ShurtugalLiam

    @Ibeliever – LOL! it isnt greedy. i think we’ve waited long enough tbh … a release date, a title, a clue, another excerpt ANYTHING would be nice.. 😛

  • AryaAndEragonForever


  • IBelieve

    No, I want the Q&A and then right afterwards a release date or progress update or something lol…greedy this is, but eager i’ve become. I feel like it will be this fall, but i’m not sure, I just want a for sure.

  • DuEldheillNuanen

    I just entered myself, but my boyfriend asked me to enter him too, and it won’t let me. Is it against the rules for both people sharing a computer to enter? Will my entry be disqualified now?

  • Smoke

    Fingers are crossed. Hope I win. Even though i have never won anything.

  • pow

    what i want is a release date for book four nothing else

  • Mike

    Round four ended last week. It was easy to miss because the Book 4 chapter came out shortly after we opened the giveaway.

  • Raevyn08

    Sign me up! 🙂

  • Joanna<3

    Yayyyy!!! 😀

  • Irnstad.the.rider
