The Inheritance Cycle Book Club is a podcast-styled read-through of Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr aimed at refreshing fans and entertaining new readers as we venture toward the release of Inheritance. Each of the twenty episodes will discuss set portions of the books, in order, and will tackle the events of each reading, theories arising from the reading, and more. Join us for our adventure through the series!
Episode four of Shurtugal.com’s Inheritance Cycle Book Club Podcast has finally arrived! Our fourth episode tackles the fourth set of chapters from Eragon, discussing some of the most important events in the Inheritance Cycle — events which have shaped Eragon’s future, and the future of Alagaesia. Join us as we discuss captures, escapes, elves, Shades, Urgals, chases, Murtagh’s past and parents, encounter the Varden, and more! This week also includes some bonus information regarding a never-before-read excerpt from Eragon in Murtagh’s point of view! Plus we tackle some of the hottest theories related to this section in our spoiler section at the end of the podcast. Be sure to read along as we read through all three books over the next twenty weeks!
Don’t forget that we’ve “hidden” a secret word in each episode of the Book Club. Collect all twenty words for a shot at an incredible grand prize, as well as many more runners-up prizes to be revealed in the coming weeks! (We officially announced the grand prize in this week’s episode!)
IMPORTANT: We will be postponing episode five, which will not release next week due to some very exciting events revolving around Comic-Con. Episode five will instead release on July 28th! We will be doubling up one week to make up for the delay.
