“The Inheritance Cycle Book Club, Episode Eleven” 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 eleven (late due to some reason the world could never fully understand) of Shurtugal.com’s Inheritance Cycle Book Club Podcast has finally arrived! Our eleventh episode tackles the sixth set of chapters from Eldest, discussing the important events of this week’s set of reading. In this episode, debate centers around Nasuada…again. Join us as we discuss Eragon breaking arms and taking names with his new strength and power, Roran meets Jeod (rhymes with load!), Roran becomes a pirate, ocean battles versus the Empire, and more Nasuada! 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, the next few episodes will contain ways to win some great prizes!

This week’s sweepstakes word is after the break due to it not being included in the episode.
