“The Inheritance Cycle Book Club, Episode Ten” Has Officially Arrived! Listen Now!

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 ten (late due to the hurricane) of Shurtugal.com’s Inheritance Cycle Book Club Podcast has finally arrived! Our tenth episode tackles the fifth set of chapters from Eldest, discussing the important events of this week’s set of reading. In this episode, debate centers around Bob’s dislike for Blagden (how could he??) and his ability to weather the storm! Join us as we discuss the latest in the soap opera that Eragon and Arya’s failed relationship, more fun tidbits of information, the Grey Folk, Eragon’s “back-attacks” are getting worse, the Blood-oath Ceremony, and more Roran! Plus we tackle a few 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!
