Three Weeks…

Three weeks from today… we’ll have our hands on Inheritance (The Vault of Souls)! It’s the day many of us have been looking forward to for nearly a decade: the day we discover the answers and learn the end of Eragon and Saphira’s adventures. What’s the biggest question on your mind going into the final Inheritance novel?

  • yep

    I want to know what Tengas question was and whether he tells eragon the answers to previous questions he has managed to answer. 

    I also want to know what’s in the vault of souls (something tells me eldunari but CP won’t make it a ”i’ve got a bigger stash than you” battle so it must be somethign smarter yet can’t be a dragon due to what CP also said. 
    Iam equally interested about the RoK

  • James Picard

    Biggest question?  That’s an easy one.  When’s the paperback edition going to come out?  I hope I don’t have to wait a year though.  Anyways, my biggest question about the content of the book is: WIll Shrrgnien, Nari, Thorv, and everyone else who accompanied Eragon to Ellesmera (except Arya, Saphira, and Orik of course) make another appearance?  Just kidding.  My biggest question is who the next Rider will be.  But  think every question I have asked is a good one, or else I wouldn’t have posted it.

    • Yoyoyugi

      even you read books you asshole…lol….lmao…:)

  • Ebrithil abr Orumar

    Reaaaally want to know what true names sound like

    • James Picard

      CP said he won’t reveal it because he believes it would be a let-down, and not live up to peoples expectations, so he just won’t write them.  He said it in an interview.  I think you can access it on Shur’tugal.

      • Yoyoaloka

        you cunt,go suck your mom’s ass

  • I myself am curious as to what Murtagh says in Brisingr. When Eragon is in the empire he comes acroos some soilders and they mention that he has said something.

  • Landon Bell

    Nasuada will die, and that in turn will make Murtagh’s true name change (I’m certain that they have a non-platonic relationship.) Thorn would also be affected by this since he share his emotions with Murtagh. Roran will become king of Alagaesia, and Brigit will end her feud with Roran by forcing Eragon, along with Aryasince they will be courting, to leave Alagaesia.

  • Maniac

    Eragon will be the next Rider. That’s right, you read it correctly. The dragon will hatch for him. Then, when Saphira and Greeni have dragon sex, it’ll be like Eragon’s having sex with himself. So when they go to fight Galby, and Eragon says “I’ll kill you Galbatorix!” and Galby’s gonna be like “Go f*** yourself” and Eragon’s gonna say “HA! Already did…”

    • Melodia

      WTF?!?!

    • Racecarboy222

      That’s the stupidest thing I’ve read all day…I L O V E it!!!!!!

  • atra esterni ono thelduin

    Will the relationship between Nasuada and Murtagh be explored at all? it seemed like it was leading to something in Eragon, but Anti-climaxed with the start of Eldest … surely some drama, what with them each holding powerful roles to play in shaping alegaesiea- especially given that they are on oposing sides. perhaps this might lead to conflict of intrest?

    • AniavereeAiedail

      I certainly hope so! Nasuada said that she had come to care for Murtagh, and she seemed saddened that he was being manipulated by Galbatorix. I hope that he finds a way to change his true name, and fights with her in the final battle. It would be rather ironic if the very person that no one trusted in the Varden became one of the leaders. But there is the issue of Murtagh killing King Hrothgar, and Eragon’s oath to avenge him… Sad day

  • Rose_Madder

    So many questions, I’m not gonna even bother. Can’t wait till this comes out!

  • robert barr

    whos gonna die in this book

  • Thorn’sNemesis

    Sorry about the random pic… I’m a big Godzilla fan LMFAO

  • Thorn’sNemesis

    Sorry about the random pic… I’m a big Godzilla fan LMFAO

  • Thorn’sNemesis

    My two biggest questions are: Will Eragon save the world from Galby or will he perish trying? I’m kinda curious about those two things… I may get the book one month late, but I’m stiil as excited to read it as you guys on Shurtugal are….

  • HB

    What i want to know, is whether we will get a full list of dragons, the riders, and their swords, cos that would be so totally awesome 🙂

  • Landon Bell

    I have a theory for the Brigit/Roran feud. I think that Brigit may make Eragon leave Alagaesia to torture Roran, who is probably the one screaming on the shore. Ayra will court Eragon and go with him as well.

  • JP310

    Does anybody think that Nasuada’s Angela’s daughter? it’s just a thought…

  • Byrd

    this isnt my biggest question I have right now, I’m pretty sure my biggest ones are the same as every one else’s. However, I have reread the books in anticipation for the new one and I was wondering if anyone else thinks that we will see Naegling again. In Brisingr Oromis tells eragon that he could move a mountain with the energy stored in it, and then he drops it battling Murtagh. I’m wondering if the elves will recover the sword and allow Eragon to transfer the power into Brisingr.

  • Gooperchickenface

    Whens the book going to come out in ireland

  • Eragon Shadeslayer

    I’m sure many people have said this, but it’s worth saying. All I want to know is if Eragon will finally succed in wooing Arya, and if we were right about Arya becoming the green Rider, but really Im more interested in Eragon and Arya

    • HLB

      me too!!!

      • Yoyolali

        have sex with me too..:)

        • HLB

          I think not …

  • Mgoetz212

    I would like to know why they make it come out the same day as Modern Warfare 3!!!!!!!

    • yo moma i$ hot

      This is so much more important than MW3, I’ve been waiting F O U R years for it.

  • HB

    the thing im most interested in is if we will perhaps see a section from Murtagh and Thorns point of view? we havent actually heard Thorn speak yet.

    • robert barr

      thats a good point

  • guest

    Q1. what were the 7 words in the ancient language brom told eragon at his death?

    Q2. what did the menoa tree take from eragon?Q3. will something happen between murtagh and nasuada?? – they still totally dig each other

  • Mollywaters94

    Totally random but could be correct, Who else thinks the whole of Alagaesia is a giant dragon and the Spine is its spine? somehow this makes sense to me.

    • Wyrda

      wht if the whole planet was a dragon just hovering in space, thn feels the itching Galbatorix causes in the Final Battle and breathes fire on him to stop the itch and destroys all living creatures…. lmfao!!!

      • robert barr

        ………well then talk about a crappy ending

      • Melodia

        Then I would think drugs were involved in the writing somewhere…lol ;D

    • Racecarboy222

      That makes no sense, although it is one of the dark twists that Paolinin likes. You may be correct, but I doubt it.

    • Baron Fritz

      you copied me look down a few posts thats my theory

  • Baron Fritz

    did anyone else think that The Spine is the remains of a huge dragon hence the name the spine and vroengard could be the front paw as it looks like the shape of a handor paw while the islands further south could be the remains of back paw. probly doesnt meen anything but its just a thought. look on the map in the front of the book to see it.

  • Wyrda

    do those spirits Eragon and Arya encountered have anything else to do with the story?

  • Wyrda

    does Thorn fly as well with half of his tail missing?

    • robert barr

      i thought he got healed

  • Wyrda

    wht happens to Durgrimst Az Sweldn rak Anhuin? Do they stick with Vermund, or do they slaughter him and cast their lot with the Varden?

  • Gabsofsteel

    it kinda makes me laugh that the biggest things we all speculate on arent about how the empire is going to get overthrown…. i dont think i have seen any theory or anything deal with that haha

  • Guestthatissmart

    Does it come with donughts? And how the hell did Galbatorix get his dragon to obey him? And I bet the vault of souls is a stash of the heart of hearts from all the dead dragons somewhere in the spine.

  • Erukanus

    Does Islanzadi die?

    • Santo Cão

      Yes, I think so, because CP told that every person get the responsabilit of their parents, so  I think Islanzadi will die and Arya will become the Queen. Also, I think the Rider will be Angela, because of what CP told

      • Tooba Salam

        CP also said that there would be “an elven death and a subsequent burial ceremony”

        • Mr. Anonymous

          Plus Islanzadi feels like an expendable character. She is somewhat vulnerable and we don’t really have ties to her like with the main characters.

      • Thorn’sNemesis

        You make an interesting point. I still think Arya will be the green rider, though.

  • bibliophile12

    There are a bunch of things I want to know!
    For one, WHO IS THE NEW RIDER??
    Second, do Eragon and Arya get together finally??
    Does Eragon really leave Alageasia?!?
    And, of course, how does Eragon kill Galbatorix?  I’m especially curious about this one, since we haven’t even really met him yet in the series – other than that one part where he kills Oromis and Glaedr – so I’m wondering how Paolini is going to, basically, create a character for him AND have Eragon kill him, all in one book.  You can’t really kill off the main villian without knowing who he is, right? Right?? Ahhhh I think I’m onto something here… MAYBE somehow Galby is seperated from his hearts, and then… someone guesses his true name? Or his dragon manages to betray him? 

    Well good day 🙂

  • blue2282

    I think the one question bothering many Inheritance fans is…..

    Is Eragon Going to end up with Arya or not.

  • Elena Shadeslayer

    WHO IS THE NEXT RIDER????

  • Trienera

    Who will mate with saphira.. dont think it’s thorn..

    • Inh3rit4nc3f4nf0r3v3r

      As long as we get a dragon sex scene, it doesn’t matter who mates with who.

  • BloodyDragonStudios

    Whats gonna happen to shruikan?

    • I think it would be poetic irony if shruikan mated with Saphira. lol

  • Arya Dröttningu

    What will (or did) Menoa Tree take from Eragon?
    Who will be the Green Rider?
    Who and How will kill Galbatorix?
    What’s about Angela’s fate?
    Will Eragon leave Alagaësia forever?
    Will Saphira be the mother of her race?
    What’s about the Vault of Souls?

  • Sameer

    new theory
    ELVA is the DAUGHTER of ANGELA or GALBATORIX or may be even both

    • HB

      if she was the daughter of galbatorix, i dont think that she would be allowed anywhere out of his sight. look at what hes done to murtagh, the son of his followers. not to mention it would be a miracle if he fell in love with something other than power 🙂 but the daughter of angela? unlikely, but still possible 🙂

  • Mylagc

    Could you create a vegetable dragon(body that works with no mind/soul) with magic which seems to be just altering chemical structure of elements and then sing the soul from an aldunari into the body the Liona sang herself into the menoa tree.

  • Mtboater

     im not gonna lie .. if ergaon doesnt kill galbatorix this boook will suck

    • Bid’Daum

      Completely agree

  • guest

    why is it that Inheritance comes out during my most hectic times of the year?…probably not what you were looking for, but I figure that all of the really big questions will be answered in three weeks

  • I have a question:

    Why is this book releasing on a Tuesday?

    That’s all I want to know…

    • Lil Uhura

      It might have something to do with the distribution end of things because I’ve noticed that books and DVDS all tend to be released on Tuesdays.

      • And yet the previous books…ugh…

        Just defies logic on a fan level.

    • Arya<3

      AHh i wish it was a friday so i could stay up 🙁

  • Sir

    Who will be the king after King Galbatorix?

    • guest

      Roran

      • Bob

        • The Joker

          HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

      • Wyrda

        Nasuada will be Queen

  • Tuor

    When will the second part of the Q&A with CP come out

  • Laurelleaf9

    how hard was it to write, and how hard will it be to read the last page?

  • Anonymous

    I’m so excited for Inheritance, I can’t wait to read it! There are lots of questions I want answered, but I guess my biggest question is on what page does Nasuada die?

  • Dae

    I don’t have a huge burning question… I just want it out!!! I’m getting so antsy and excited about it I could almost cry.

  • Sunda_Garm

    What will happen to the most epic charaster in the series… Roran?

    • angeleyes1511

      i have a feeling hes gonna rule Alagaesia after galby…

      • Sunda_Garm

        He might, but I think that he will go back to Carvahall, rebuild it, and live there with Katrina and their kid. He could also represent Carvahall in the decisions of the government and be in charge of a portion of the army just in case anything happens.

        • Mr. Anonymous

          Or Carvahall could become the new capital of Alagaesia…

  • gabs345

    hmm my biggest question.. aside from the obvious ones (what happens to eragon, who is green rider, vault of souls and rock of kuthian, arya…) I want to know about Angela. Is she human? My guess is that she is half elvish  

    • Anonymous

      I’m guessing that angela is a grey folk.

  • Anonymous

    I have a lot of theories when i comes to the menoa tree taking something from eragon.  Some of them other people have already posted. 

    She could have taken saphiras heart of hearts and eragon felt it through their connection.
    Maybe she took eragons queasiness that he gets when he kills.
    Maybe it was either saphiras or his ability to reproduce.
    She could be forcing him to end up leaving alagasia forever.
    She could have taken some organ that elfs have that we don’t no about.
    Maybe it was eragons ability to see things before they happen.
    Or it could be something simple and unimportant like energy.

  • Jalong410

    I’m curious as to where the book will end, how long after galbies death? does it end when he leaves Alageasia? The world may never know.

  • Anonymous

    Ok people need to stop posting about the second half of the interview.  I agree with the posts and laughed when i read them but then everyone started posting the same thing about it and it just gets annoying.  Not trying to be harsh

    • The Joker

      Everyone knows where the 2nd half is, that’s what the Menoa tree stole. HA HA HA HA HA HA

      • Mr. Anonymous

        If I could like this more than once I would!!

  • eva geiger

    three weeks – three books to read, great for killing time =)

  • sirsimon

    What is the name of the green dragon?

  • AryaForce

    Did we finish the Twenty Questions thing yet? Surely this can’t all be it and we still have three weeks left.

  • Maping

    Who was the character tortured in the dungeon?

    ….Remember? From one of the interviews. Christopher mentioned it….

    • Becky L

      Didn’t Christopher say it was Eragon?

      • Anonymous

        Yes he said that it was eragon who was tortured and dying in a cell

        • Lil Uhura

          But which one?  It could be a flashback of Eragon 1, or it could be our Eragon.

          • Anonymous

            It could be the first eragon rider because paloni did say that he would shed more light about the first eragon in the new book.

            If that’s true then whose dungeon was he in?  I doubt it was the elfs because he was the first rider and brought peace between the elfs and dragons.

            If that’s not true then its our eragon and i think hes in a dungeon of the grey folk.

    • Guest

      I think it is either a dungeon of the werecats in a long and forgotten place or it will be a dungeon of the ak dwarvs which is deep in the mountains.

      As to why eragon is being tortured in a  dungeon my were-cat hypothesis is that he is friends with angela and some werecats go behind their kings back and torture eragon.

      My drawf theory is simple…it’s a clan that has already tried to kill him once before.
      Or
      Vermund could have fled his clan and brought loyal drwaven followers who captured eragon and took him.

      My last point is that eragon may have stepped into the trap on purpose to find out more about his enemies and that saphira and the 12 elves + arya giv him a certain amount of time before coming to get him.

      Given the amount of info we have be given about the dungeon that is the best i can come up with…It could be Tenga the hermit but i can’t see any supporting evidence of that…

  • Tooba Salam

    will murtagh turn to the varden’s side? how does roran survive from the beginning(rock wall)? will arya and eragon hook up? who will saphira mate with ? will she mate at all? does galbatorix actually die, or is he the “unnamed shadow” in eragons guide to alagaesia?

    • Anonymous

      I think murtagh will turn to the varden but ends up dying.
      Roran survives the rock wall by using majic.
      Arya and eragon will hook up.
      Saphira mates with the green dragon
      Galbotorix ends up dying.

      • Tooba Salam

        okay then , how does roran use magic ?

        • Anonymous

          Instinct.  Just like when eragon first uses magic with brisingr.  After all they share the same blood.

          • Tooba Salam

            That makes perfect sense! You are awesomely epic for thinking of that!!!

      • guest

        what rock wall??

        • Anonymous

          In one of the interviews it shows us an excerpt from one of the chapters in inheritance and it  said that a rock wall was about to fall on roran and he doesnt have time to move.

  • Kerusso

    I have soooo many questions, but I think a major one is what did the Menoa tree take from Eragon/Saphira? I think the story that Nar Garzvhog (Don’t know if I spelled that right,) tells on their way to Bregan Hold was a warning! He told about the Urgal maiden who wanted a certain ram as her mate and went to one of her goddesses and begged her to make her beautiful and she (the goddess) said, “What will you give me in return?” and the maiden answered, “Anything you want.” (I am abbreviating,) so she made her beautiful and she got the ram she wanted and she had lots children, then after ten years (or something like that) the goddess came and chose her firstborn son to take andthe maiden tried to stop her so the goddess took away her beauty.
    I think the Menoa tree is going to take something precious like Saphiras heart of hearts or make Eragon leave Alagaesia….. arrggg idk!

    • Sergiovazquez3

      maybe she made it where eragon couldnt have any kids

      • maybe she will want his kid…. like in the story

        • Anonymous

          What would she do with his kid?

          • What would a goddess do with someone’s kid? It’s simple. It’s something of great importance to the person. It’s a “can’t fight fate” scenario. However, that also applies to her banishing Eragon

  • Dragonrider

    Hmmmm will Murtagh turn good at the last second, kill Galby, and in Galbys last dying moments stab Murtagh, and then they both die?

    • SoccerRef

      first of all he can’t just turn good since galbatorix made Murtagh and Thorn swear in the ancient language oaths of obedience and things like that and all galbatorix has to do to control murtagh and thorn is speak their true names which could cause them great pain (why i say could is because sloan was caused great pain when he heard his true name) so just a thought. but it is also possible for them to change their true names so i guess the only that i can say is wait and read the book if you get impatient read another book series (not the same it will cause the need to know to grow) or focus hard on school do extra school work  if you are out of school see if you can work overtime

      • i agree. It won’t be all of a sudden. I think the chapters from Murtagh’s POV will be geared towards showing his development and showing his subtle changes until he finally makes that big change and breaks free of his oaths.

    • hoke

      No he’ll throw him into a reactor shaft and be shocked to death by his lightning

    • Tooba Salam

      That’s a good theory , except for one thing……I DON”T WANT MURTAGH TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    I have a lot of questions about the new book like what is the vault of souls?  Or what did the menoa tree take from eragon?  Who the next rider is. What the relationship between eragon and his sword are to cause it to light on fire when he speaks its name.  My biggest question is what are the 7 words that brom told eragon are and what they mean.  What do you guys think?

    • Poop

      Some of the words were already used by Eragon. It was said in one of the interviews.

      • Supopo

        can you provide a link please?

  • JonCypher

    How is Eragon going to Kill Galbatorix? I think he will find that answer in the Vault of Souls. 

    • Just Sayin’

      I think the Vault of Souls is a place where the wild dragons took and hid their heart of hearts either as they were dying or put there by other dragons after they died.  If Eragon could access the energy of all those dragons…….

  • how eragon is going to leave alagasia?

    • JonCypher

      I think he will leave Alagaesia with the elves, he will go with Arya and leave with her, since that is the only place outside of Alagaesia that somebody knows how to get too. 

  • wiseman

    How is going to turn out?

    • wiseman

      EDIT: How is it going to turn out?

  • What name do the dwarves use for the Beor Mountains?

    • guest

      i bet the name for the beor mountains is the rocks of kuthian 😛

      • That may be. It would be an interesting twist.

      • Lil Uhura

        Hmm…that’s an intriguing thought.  The name for the Beor mountains is a name shared with no outsider, but Eragon IS a member of Durgrimst Ingeitum now…hmm…

  • The Green dragon

    To find out what the Menoa Tree took from Eragon and if we will find out, also whether or not Eragon will actually leave Aleagasia and if there are other dragons in the world.

  • AvaAnnaZ

    Murtagh: good or bad? And also, who is going to die? 🙁

  • Helen Beddis

    I can’t wait to find out if any of our theories are anywhere near accurate and hopefully some Angela questions answered and the fates of murtagh and thorn.

  • Im Benzoh

    Will it blend?

    • Whoo, Inheritance smoke…don’t breathe this.

  • Horsegal4ever

    My biggest question? Who does Eragon hook up with? I have a few theories I’m anxious to see IF work. How does Alegaesia get set to right? How does Galby die? And all those other quite obvious ones. OMGSH, 3 weeks, I haven’t even been paying attention too it too much! Out of sight, out of mind, I can stand the wait. Thanks for the reminder, Mike! 😛 lol

  • Steven N

    Preparing for the speed-read as soon as I have it, then I’ll take another week or so to reread and get the depth. Also, I’m rereading each book per the last three weeks. The biggest thing going through my mind for book four is probably going to be Angela’s role at the very end. Will she shove Eragon out of Alagaesia, is she the one to deal the final blow to Galbatorix, or will she turn traitor and kill Nasuada even as Galbatorix dies?

  • Em

    My brother gave me Eragon to read when I was about 12. I was reluctant to read what I thought was a so-so dragon story written for kids with a shallow plot like dragons and drama between kids,etc. I finally started reading it and it was amazing!!! Ive been waiting 5 years and I cant wait to get the book for my 17th bday!!! What I want to know is what happens Eragon and Saphira in Inheritance! I really want to know if Arya falls for Eragon and if Eragon will establish a circle of riders again and a training school for them! Im gonna have a hard time not reading the story in 1 day lol

  • Petros

    that’ll be awsome, but I’m still waiting in patience for the release date for Norway. I guess no one’s heard of that date or have you? would be very nice to get it 😀

    • The Thinker

      you have my sympathies

  • Haris

    Will Arya fall in love with Eragon 🙂 And second is will Murtagh become good.

  • yo dough boi

    I just want to know if Eragon is finally going to get it in with Arya

  • Dorota

    The thought running through my mind going into the final Inheritance novel is not a question, but a demand: MURTAGH, COME BACK!!!

  • Johnnybravo

    Guys. I just realized what the Menoa Tree stole. The second half of that interview. Angela will steal it back and Galby will have a heart-attack when he reads it.

    • Goldilocks Gamgee

      Which interview? I’m intrigued…

      • JohnnybravoAKA-THEJOKER

        you know, the comic con interview, come on it was a JOKE, is that such a foreign concept to you with no pale skin and green hair?

        • THEJOKER

          Call me THE JOKER from now on. HA HA HA

  • Anonymous

    Hmm … the biggest question on my mind? Why does Eragon keep learning the same things over and over again? ……. For example, how to teleport objects, he learns this during his initial training in Eldest, but yet when he goes back to Oromis in Brisingr, why does he then learn it again as opposed to learning how to teach another magic (for roran or some sorts) …….

  • White Catle

    Have any Ra’zac survived? That is all I want to know, seeing as how we don’t know much about them!

    • joker

      unlikely. before eragon killed the last ra’zac is begged a favour of him and went on to explain that with it’s hatchmate dead it is the last of its kind

  • Redhairwookie

    Is Angela an outcast Werecat herself?

    • Anonymous

      no, else the elves would know, and during Eldest Oromis calls her “a human spellcaster” …

      • makenna52

        agreed. I’m very interested to know though–why is it that Solembum loves her, and yet the king of werecats hates her?

  • icanhascheezburger?

    cheesecakes?

  • Xxiaosaurus

    How will Galbatorix finally be dethroned? Will it be Eragon himself as perceived by Alagaesia’s peoples, or will there be an epic battle scene with the false king against the dragons of the New Age and their Riders (Saphira, Thorn, and “Greeni”)? THAT is what I’m counting on for a final battle…

  • Pivshenken

    Who’s the green dragon and what side is he on.

  • Lil Uhura

    All of my questions have been asked except for one. Will we ever get a chapter from Arya’s POV?

      I’ve been wondering the same thing. In the book Eragon, we’ve only seen Eragon’s POV; then in Eldest, there was Eragon, Roran, and Nasuada’s POV; and in Brisingr, it was Eragon, Roran, Nasuada, Saphira, and Glaedr’s POV (just briefly). We all know we will see a bit from Murtagh’s POV in Inheritance, but who else? What about Orik or even Arya? That would be interesting…

  • Skulblaka_Shur’tugal

    My question? WHAT HAPPENS!?

  • The Grey Rider

    Is it really the end of this series?

    Next up, (thanks to that evilest of cliffhangers from that excerpt) will Roran survive?
    Then, will Saphira end up trapped as an Eldunari?
    And of course: Just what will the price of victory be?

  • inheritancecyclefan927384

    whos the next rider?

  • Elf Knight

    Hey, Mike! Random question – do you think you can post an excerpt from Book 4 of the last two or three words so long as they are a part of a scentence or something? Then maybe we can try and guess what happens from there. I know the book is coming out later, but it’s taken so darn long. It’s not like it’s The Lord of the Rings or the Game of Thrones or anything. Not that I don’t appreciate Christopher Paolini’s effort because I do, but you know what I mean! Anyhow, just an idea. Of course, it probably wouldn’t happen but it would still be interesting to guess, I think. Any thoughts?

    • Just remember that he is just about as clueless as to what happens in Inheritance as we are – he gets the book as soon as it is released to the public, and not a minute before, and has no way to know what happens until the book is actually released

      • I can confirm that I read this book 10 years ago. I liked it.

    • brody

      possibly the stupidest question that has ever been asked on here??

  • bigmike

    Who is the villian after Galbi dies? Is it going to be murtage? Or maybe the unknown shadow? hmmmm

  • Tyler Whitlock

    All of my biggest questions revolve around greenie. How does Arya get the egg, how powerful does it become, and how is Eragon going to undertake the “training” of Greenie and Arya.

    Yeah some of you are probably thinking why I’m so sure it’s Arya. Well, it’s kinda obvious…

  • Ugiuogiuo

    Personally, my biggest question is whether I can afford the book, and when we will get part 2 of that fab interview…

    • Mike said it will be out sometime this week. He is limited, probably by Random House, as to when he can release it. He said he isn’t sure what day but deffinately this week sometime.

    What is Inheritance?

    • via Wikipedia:

      Inheritance is the practice of passing on property, titles, debts, rights and obligations upon the death of an individual.

      And now you know! See? Simple!

  • Zach

    Broms seven words? WHAT ARE THEY?!?!?!

    • Poop

      Uh, obviously not anything important, as Eragon has already used some of them (said so in a CP interview)

      • Anonymous

        I think the words are important. Do you have a link to the interview?

      • zach

        I think he said that Eragon might have been using them already but we don’t know that he is, I could be wrong though.

  • Caroline

    I want to find out what happens to everyone!! The end is the biggest concern for me. 

  • Macs_bunch

    What is Eragon’s true name?  If I had to pick one question.  After that, there are a million, and all awaiting us in three weeks.

  • Sesshy

      Though my sentiments completely go out to Jjerzey
      I completely understand that Mike, Chris (who’s in charge of interviews, right), and Bob are extremely busy when we’re only three weeks away. 0.o

    • right!!!!! like wth

  • BWD

    I think my biggest question is: Are Murtagh and Thorn going to survive? Well, the answer will present itself in three weeks, I can’t get my hands on the book until the Friday because it comes out the day I go on school camp (9th). 

    (And yes, it’s released a day later in Australia >:I)

  • Paulaberrios1996

  • GuyWhoKnows

    What the balls is the vault of souls!

    • BOOO!!

      my guess is where thy kept the Eldunari on Vroengard. Eldunari are kind of like the souls of dragons, so if they kept them in a vault…the Vault of Souls

  • AryaForce

    I think the biggest question in my mind is who will be who the green dragon will hatch to? How it will end is surprisingly not much of a concern, but this question along with all the other general big twenty questions are just stirring in a huge pot. The one on top is the one at the forefront of mind is the next dragon rider.

  • roran is the best character

    Could the new green rider be the elf Eragon spared with in Du Welden Varden? He doesn’t have a major part but it was said that he was young and his magic was green. I think his name was Varen or something.

    • Arya<3

      Vanir.. and I think the green rider was supposed to be present in the first book? lol

  • Arya<3

    I think I’m gonna cry…

  • Dragon obsessed

    my biggest question is what will become of Murtagh and Thorn?!? I desperatly want them to be free of Galbatorix but if they are will they even be good? I doubt they would what to still support the Empire after the torture they went through but who’s to say they will even join the Varden?? i would also like to know who will save the dragon race and what is this supposedly TRAGIC elven death!?!? Sorry that’s more than one question but I’m a curious girl!!!

  • Steve

    I would like to know about the Grey Folk, the nature of the ancient language, etc.

    However my biggest question is what will become of Eragon? Is the prophecy correct? Will he leave Alagaesia, albeit in somewhat in a roundabout fashion (I.E. Doru Areaba) or going to some far flung continent? 

    • Johnnybravo

      I think based on Paolini mentioning humans in alagaesia aren’t exactly human. THEY are the grey folk descendants.

  • Morgoth

    Question?

    Is Eragon ever going to score?

    Hold on, I got this…

    Eragon vs Murtagh! *Cue battle of heroes music*

    Eragon either talks Murtagh into pulling one on Galbatorix, or we’ll have an inevitably tragic scene in which Murtagh has a pleasant caht for 5 minutes about his regrets whilst dying from a dirty great sword wound in his chest.

    Eragon Vs Galbatorix!

    Eragon gets the crap kicked out of him, then either Arya/Saphira/Nasuada – dies/gets wounded/captured. Eragon goes psycho super effective mode, then performs a rousing, heroic one liner, and finishes Galbatorix with a classic Brisingr.

    Then we either get a moody ending with Eragon standing before a sea of corpses, realising the cost of it all.

    Or we get a bright, colourful victory, accompanied by speeches, dancing, and maybe Eragon getting down with Arya/Nasuada/Angela – Ewww…maybe not the last one…

    • Morgoth

      *chat

      Hate it when I make a spelling mistake and look like a tit for it.

    • DiamondTears

  • Crystal

    • Crystal

      I mean, (Pardon the pun.) it feels like my soul is going to get ripped out if this series ends… It’s been a big part of my life since… oh, since about second grade.

  • Apart from the obvious ones, my main question is: “How awesome are the were-cats in combat?”

  • Orangestar

    My question is: what is everyone looking for and what happens when somebody finds it.

    • Ryan Green1991

      7 words Brom said!

      • Orangestar

        Well, yeah. I think that does have something to do with it, and it’s probably the name of the ancient language. You just can’t be sure though, until the book comes out and I really want to see what would happen if Tenga or Galbatorix found the true name.

  • Anonymous

    The thing I’m looking forward to most is how Eragon and Galbatorix interact when they meet for the very first time.

    • Mets22497

      I hadn’t thought about that before, but now that it’s mentioned, it seems like it will be very interesting.

I’m not getting the book until 8 am on the 8th and I’m sure that some people will almost be done by then. I’m not going onto this site until after I finish the book.

      It’s very clearly stated in Eragon’s Guide To Alagaesia that Eragon and Saphira both survive the war.  How they survive remains in question.

      • hoke

        true forgot the guide. but will saphira’s body survive and will eragon be unscathed is a better question i guess?

  • Omieyu

    Just a question to all, we only have Murtag’s word that the last dragon is male, is there a possibility that he was lying? From what i remember, they were not speaking the Ancient language when they were speaking of this

      Yes but if he was lying and the green dragon was actually a female then he would have no reason for letting Eragon and Saphira live and the Vardens would have lose forever, Murtagh will kill himself for not having Nasuada and Galbatorix will continue with his reign of terror and nobody (except for Galbatorix of course) will live happilly ever after, do you think Christopher will make such a bad ending for the best series in the world?!?!?!?!?!?

      • Christopher

        Oh Darn! now I have to rewrite the ending of the book!

      I dont think that he was lying.  But i cant say that your wrong.  If the last dragon is male murtagh probably believes its female but is wrong.  Or maybe the last dragon hatched and  its male.

  • makenna52

    I’m so excited!!! I don’t think I can narrow it down to only one big question though, I have so many: Who kills Galbatorix, and how? What is the Rock of Kuthian and the Vault of Souls, why does Eragon need to go there, and how does he find it?  Who is the next Rider? Will dragons be able to continue their species? What happens to Murtagh? What happens with Elain and Katrina and their pregnancies? Who is Angela? Who is Tenga, and what is “the answer”? Who is the next king or leader in Alagaesia? Does Nasuada act on her desire to control or regulate magicians? Does Eragon leave Alagaesia, and why? Where does he go? And yes, I would very much like to know if Eragon ends up with Arya, or with someone else, or with no one at all . . .

XD XD XD

  • ZoieB

    My single question is this. Will Inheritance be predictable? I detest books with predictable endings. I sincerely hope it won’t end with Eragon killing Galbatorix, then getting together with Arya, Murtagh and Thorn both living, Roran becoming King etc. etc. it just seems too obvious.

    will harry potter appear at the end of the book in Doctor whos Phonebox time machine and cast a ~ADAVRA KEDAVRA~ spell to kill Galbatorix ? it would be quite an unexpected twist… but seriously, i dont think anyone will kill Galbatorix, i think Eragon will destroy his power source and leave him powerless.

    p.s i hope Shurkin doesnt die!!

    p.p.s I THINK YA`LL SHOULD GIVE CHRIS A CROWN, LONG LIVE THE HICKS !!!

  • My biggest question is: Can Christopher Paolini improve his writing style and actually focus on the important events without so many unneeded bunny trails. When he gets down to writing story, he’s quite good, but the problem is that 95% of the books (at least Eldest and Brisingr) could be cut and not miss a thing.

    I’m hoping he doesn’t explain too much about Angela in the final book. I want to keep her as mysterious as possible.

      I’m not so sure that 95% of Eldest and Brisingr are irrelevant.  We don’t know what all will be important in book 4.  It’s possible that some of those things that seemed totally irrelevant in 2 and 3 will be crucial information for 4.

      Personally I love that the books are so detailed. And I agree with the person before me–some of the things that seemed random are probably going to be important in book 4.

      Christopher’s writing style is AWESOME and if you don’t like books that are long, then this probably isn’t the series for you.  Everything is relevant because if he just wrote it as cut and dry and you want it, it wouldn’t be interesting.  It’s the “bunny trails” and the elaborate plot line that makes the books so amazing.  He could say:  ” Eragon went with Roran to Helgrind.  They killed the Razac.  They returned and Eragon stayed behind….”  Talk about a boring book!!

      • I love long books. It’s not the length that bothers me. It’s the lack of anything really important during that span.

        No, not everything is relevant. I don’t need to hear about how Roran killed 200 men or every single meal that Eragon eats. I want the meat of the story…not stuff that doesn’t matter. Eldest spent most its pages creating magical laws that A) nobody cares about or B) we never hear about again. Eldes felt like reading a history book, not a fast paced fantasy novel. I yawned through almost every page of that book.
        Which leads me to pacing. Even if every sentence was relevant to the story, Paolini’s pacing is horrendous. The scene at Helgrind was about 30 pages too long (not sure about the actual length, but that’s what it felt like). He’ll have 2 or 3 paragraphs dedicated on describing a rock. He needs to learn how to change up the pacing to make it an easier read. I know most younger people or newer readers won’t realize this, but it’s true.

        I haven’t even touched on the gag-inducing dialogue.

          I agree with you 100%  Long books don;t equal good quality.  I am all for a lengthy book, but it better have something worth saying!  Also even if most of what he wrote in the last two book does turn u to be important he still failed at it’s purpose.  What I read should be keeping me engaged in that moment rather than hoping that what appears like worthless info could turn out to be useful in the last 100 pages of the last book.  Honestly, I like his books they just need to be severely edited.

  • The biggest question on my mind is who will kill Galbatorix. I know that Eragon would be the most obvious person but after Paolini’s comment about the person you planned to have kill the king no longer works it makes me wonder. There is no doubt for me that Galbatorix will die.

      I would be very disappointed if Eragon is not the one that will kill Galbatorix. He’s our hero! But I don’t think anyone else can kill Galbatorix but him. Who else is powerful enough?

      • Arya, Eragon, Murtagh, Thorn, Orick, Nasuada, Elva, Angela, Tenga, Saphira, Shruiken, the green dragon, the new rider, Blodgarm, Solembum. I could see it being any one of these. Did I forget anybody? I wouldnt begrudge Paolini for taking a different route than Eragon. In the third book I write the death of the Antagonist will come from an unexpected person.

        • Oh ya, Rorhan or Katrina could do it too.

            I think that Eragon/Saphira with the help of other major characters will destroy most of Galby’s power (Eldunari) and somehow free Shruikan from his spells.  It will finally be Shruikan who would kill Galby or die killing him (thereby getting his revenge)!!

    Where/are there anymore dragons?(other than Saphira, Shruikin, and Thorn)

    • Sallystar6of7

      no i am pretty sure cp said that there were no other living dragons in alegasia.

      • Guest

        He said no dragon RIDERS left

        • He actually said there weren’t any Riders left we hadn’t heard about. I think this still leaves room for Eragon the First to still be around

          • Guest

            Either way there might be more dragons

        I just don’t like to be promised something that doesn’t happen when it was promised to happen… He said end of September, unless I read it wrong, and it’s nearing the last half of October, and it’s still not out.

          He’s also said its out of his control. Meaning he can’t post it, no matter how much he wants to, until he gets the go ahead from else where.
