Inheritance Book Club Episode 19 is Here and Features Christopher Paolini’s Editor, Michelle Frey!

The penultimate episode of The Inheritance Book Club Podcast has arrived! Episode nineteen, the final week of Brisingr, featured an incredibly special co-host: Michelle Frey, long-time editor of the Inheritance Cycle! Aside from the Paolini family, no one knows the books — including Inheritance (Book 4) — better than Michelle. She joins us for one of our best episodes yet to discuss the final one-hundred pages of Brisingr, including the big Eldunari reveal and the death of Oromis (and body-death of Glaedr), in addition to giving us some insider information on working with Christopher and editing Book 4.

Whether or not you’ve listened to all of our episodes, this is a great place to jump in to listen. Michelle’s commentary, answers, and contributions make for exciting content for Inheritance fans… and some clues about Book 4 and the Cycle as a whole may just be mixed in. And remember: Christopher Paolini himself will be joining us for the final episode in the series! Presents: The Inheritance Cycle Book Club, Episode Nineteen — Featuring Michelle Frey:
