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 seven of Shurtugal.com’s Inheritance Cycle Book Club Podcast has finally arrived! Our seventh episode tackles the second set of chapters from Eldest, discussing the important events of this week’s set of reading. We thought it’d be one of our slower episodes, but boy were we wrong! Mike mistakenly introduces the show as a Doctor Who podcast before launching back into the “Nasuada: Love Her or Hate Her?” fray he created in past episodes. Join us as we discuss visiting Tarnag, venturing to Ellesmera, encountering new elves in Ceris, Arya and Eragon’s lovers’ quarrels, Roran and Carvahall’s daring defenses, and more! 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! Additionally, this week’s episode contains a way for fans to win a set of Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr signed by Christopher Paolini!
