On Spoilers and Spoiling

Spoilers: if you post them, you lose access and post on on Shurtugal.com — permanently. Many fans have waited years for the final book to come out. Book stores are legally not allowed to sell the books early, and if you have landed a copy, it was in error. Please do the right thing and do NOT post ANY information about INHERITANCE in the comments. No hints, chapter titles, etc. — if it hasn’t been released, don’t post it. We would hate to remove a fan from accessing the community, but will do so if needed. Thanks for your understanding!

    I used to be a fan of this site but you banned me from one of your rooms just for speaking my mind and I will never forgive you for that. I thought you were definitely wiser than that but I now know I was wrong about you Mike Macauley. Thanks for allowing yourself to be manipulated

    The book opens with the Vardens’ attack on Belatona. In the midst of the battle, Saphira is nearly killed by a Dauthdaert, a spear from the Dragon Wars, created to withstand dragon magic. Eragon and Arya find Lord Bradburn and subdue him, taking control of the city. In the aftermath they are offered an alliance by the werecats which they accept. That night Elain’s baby, Hope, is born with a cleft lip, which Eragon sings through the night to heal her. The Varden march on to Dras-Leona where Eragon defeats Murtagh and Thorn and takes control of the city. Later on Murtagh and Thorn attack the Varden camp and take Nasuada prisoner. Eragon is elected as the leader of the Varden as they march towards Uru’baen. Eragon travels to the Rock of Kuthian, a library of old, where Riders stored information. It is located in Vroengard, which Saphira and Eragon reach after many obstacles. When Eragon and Saphira speak their true names in front of the rock, a pathway to The Vault of Souls opens, which contains Eldunaris and Dragon eggs. Glaedr, remembering events of the past, recounts how, along with Vrael’s dragon, Umaroth, a secret vault had been created, which contained many hidden Eldunari and dragon eggs. Moreover, Glaedr and Oromis were then made to forget events of the past, in case Galbatorix were to have captured them and obtained information on this secret Vault. Eragon departs from Vroengard with all but a few of the Eldunari, but the eggs are left in their place for the time being. Upon leaving the Vault, all knowledge of the eggs existence is wiped from the minds of Eragon, Saphira’s and all of the Eldunari accompanying them, so that Galbatorix cannot make use of that information. After elaborate scheming, and much bloodshed, Galbatorix is slain by Eragon, and Shruikan is ultimately killed by Arya. The downfall of Galbatorix is thanks largely to the assistance of Murtagh and Thorn, who are able to break free of their oaths to Galbatorix on account of their identities changing drastically. During Nasuada’s captivity at Uru’baen Murtagh assisted her to the best of his ability in resisting Galbatorix, because of the love he had fostered for her over the many months since he had met her, and it was this love that largely was responsible for his identity switch. Free for the first time since being bonded together, Murtagh and Thorn decide to fly north on their own to let their hate and rage cool down, and to rethink a great many things. After Galbatorix’s demise, Nasuada becomes the Queen of Alagaesia, whereas Arya, after the death of her mother, becomes the Queen of the Elves. It is also revealed that the green dragon egg (now rescued, and in the possession of the Varden) hatches for Arya, just shortly after she determines to resume her roll as the ferry for the dragon egg. Eragon and Saphira are both now able to remember the hidden eggs (with the threat of Galbatorix now removed) and they work together to find a suitable place to house the, now, numerous Eldunari (both from Galbatorix’s collection, and the Vault of Souls), and which would accommodate the needs of a new order of Riders. During this process Eragon also solves the problem of binding all the races together, by reworking the magic of the land to include both the dwarves and the Urgals in the bond between riders and dragons, meaning that dragons can now hatch for an Urgal or a dwarf. In the end, Eragon reaches the decision that the safest place (for all races) to train the new order, is in a location outside of Alagaesia. Eragon, with the approval of all the leaders of the various races, elects to transport all the Eldunari to this new location, and he takes all the dragon eggs, save two (one is sent to the dwarves, and one to the Urgals), with him. Arya declines Eragons offer to accompany him across the sea, and to help him in the task of training the new riders out of her duty to her people as their new queen. With heavy hearts, pushing their feelings for both Arya and Firnen aside, Eragon and Saphira, together, depart Alagaesia forever.

      how was it?

      • Guest

        It was the best book yet. I was a little disapointed in the ending but it was the best tha I could expect. And it could be that I was just really tired and missed it but I was upset about a major question being not answered.

  • ChemFan

    I should get my copy today according to the UPS tracking number. A day early, but I work until 9 or 10 tonight and have a presentation before work tomorrow, so I’ll only get a chapter or two in tonight.

  • TopHat

    i have one last theory before i start reading the book. i just want to post it as proof that it was a theory before i start. remember in brisingr eragon visits that one elven family that has the green sword. the sword was described as a more of a bludgeon of a weapon made for knocking and smashing. well i think roran fits that criteria perfectly. i think roran gets the green sword. but i think the only way he will get it is if he becomes the green rider. i was hoping for arya but now im not so sure it will be her. oh so that makes eragons dream of the two dragons leaving with the elves on the ship greeny and saphira. roran is the guy calling out on the beach after eragon and his dragon.
    my previous theory, which im not altogether giving up on, is eragon leaving with arya and the elves with thorn and saphira in the air leaving while murtagh is the guy calling out for thorn.
     i dunno so many posssibilities cant wait for tomorrow for the book. hooray

    • Mcase19

  • Amethyst Rose

    Thanks for sharing!!! No worries with me though! I can already say that I have it downloaded to my Nook library and I already know it’s going to be amazing!

    • sial

      Can you tell me where did you find the book for download?

      • Amethyst Rose

        You can get this by going to BarnesandNobel.com and typing Inheritance in the search button. Then use the drop down menu for Nook Book. Do that before pressing enter and it’ll take you there. It’s only around $14.00. Once done, log into your nook whether it’s on phone laptop or the nook itself and it’ll be there.

        • WeatherwiseGirl

          It is not the actual book yet. It is just the cover. So don’t cancel and rebuy. I have had mine pre-ordered for awhile and keep refreshing my sync today just to be sure to get it ASAP. It has not been released.

    • Aa

      Did Barnes and Noble already release it for the Nook?! I’ll cancel my preorder and get the ebook if that’s the case. 

  • Craig 95

    I hope I’m ok to post this and if not feel free to take it down straight away if I shouildn’t have, but I thought I’d warn you all, since I know many members of this community visit FanFiction.net. If you don’t want any spoilers do NOT look at IronMikeTyson’s story An End Comes To All, it ISN’T AN UPDATE, it IS SPOILERS, which he claims may be true, so again any FanFiction visitors who don’t want any clues DON’T LOOK AT IT!!! I made the mistake and am SEVERLY REGRETING IT!!!!!

    • Mr-x

      I’ll check it out once i have read the book haha =P

      Thanks

    • EragonandMurtagh

      thanks, i wouldn’t want to ruin the experience by knowing what would happen!!!!!!!!!!!! i am getting it as a few days late b-day present from my mom, cause it wont come out until the 18th here, and my mom has to give it to me at the right time cause once i get my hands on it i wouldn’t stop reading if the house were burning down!

  • Mr-x

    anyone have their EGTA at hand? i wanna point yous to something on the last page with the humans and urgals there is a black sword does anyone else think this looks like a riders blade?

    • Anonymous

      Well there is a section on the Dragon riders page with rider’s blades, and it looks a little different. the groove only goes halfway on the one your saying, while on brisingr and zar’roc the groove runs the length of the blade. Also, its a black sword, and the the only black dragon we know of is Shruiken, so maybe it’s Galby’s sword that he took from a slain rider.

      • Mr-x

        Yeah that’s what I’m thinking

      • Mr-x

        It’s a nice looking blade either way also since it’s pure black this may just be that they haven’t given it it’s color yet possibly arvindr or an unnamed blade?

    • Oromis = Liam Neeson

      There is no jewl, and you can tell if you look close that it’s silver

      • Mr-x

        …. it’s UN-colored the jewel is the pommel obviously it doesn’t look like a jewel atm but yeah

  • Vittoriasecret

    where are the excerpts?

  • ArgetKveykva

    Normally whem i get a new book i read through it as quickly as possible. But having read this series for the past 6 years im going to be reading as slow as possible :P. And avoiding any related websites so i dont get any spoilers. Any chance that Chris could just write another book? :L I would loooooooooooove that to happen :).

    • Haha same here, I’m gonna savor this book as much as possible 🙂 but I won’t be too slow because I also have school and I don’t want to miss out on the discussions online.

      • ArgetKveykva

        True :L and im probably going to bring the book into school to read. After saying this ill end up reading it in two days :/. I really wish they started the movie series again, or Chris write another book!!

        • Reese

          Well, on CP’s twitter, someone asked if there was any possibility of remakes if the movies, and CP said something and then no comment. So at this point I do believe it might be a possibility, and personally. I’m really hoping they do remake “Eragon”, so they have movies too. So, my thoughts. Eragon isn’t quite over yet. [:

          • guest

            why dont they just let Peter Jackson and his team make the series? 🙂

          • Fp

            That would require Peter Jackson and his team want to do the series.  Good quality filmmakers aren’t cheap.

  • Anonymous

    can we also say no posting any plot details even after the book has come out?

    • PrometheusLKR

      I wish; gonna be getting this for Christmas probably and will have to avoid this site from 11/8 ’til then. But that wouldn’t really be fair to people that will want to discuss the book.

    • Denmark111

      As far as I remember, Mike said in a comment that the posts would be spoiler-free (or at least there would be a spoiler warning), while we probably should avoid the comments until we’ve read it.

  • guest

    damn you daylight savings, putting another hour between me and inheritance!

  • The Dark Lard 48

    Hey Mike, do you know if Inheritance will be released in Pakistan on the 8th or later? 

    • I got some relatives in Pakistan, I can ask them if you want.

  • applehater

    So, I’m looking around the web looking for interesting theories, but I am afraid to click on any because of any early spoilers. What kind of websites should I avoid clicking on?

    • Any website having to do with the Inheritance cycle would probably be your best bet. Not everyone is going to be as honest and nice as Mike & Co.

  • CatWhite

    I just can’t wait! Hope the book comes out in Norway on the 8th of november.

      Ganske sikker på at den gjør det 😉

    • It counts down to November 8th. No matter where you are.

      • Mr-x

        ahh hey bob in the guide did you see the black sword in the humans section that looks very much like a riders sword?

        • Arthur Z.

          dude! drop the hammer and back away from the dead horse.

          • EragonandMurtagh

            no offence but that was totally random and had absolutely nothing to do with the comment you replied to. unless you were trying to be funny or subtle and then i apologise cause sometimes those things can go straigh over my head. but still… WHAT DID YOU MEAN BY THAT TOTALLY UNRELATED QUESTION!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

          • Mr-x

            …. some people know how to over react ^

          • Arthur Z.

            I was commenting on the fact that he posted that same “black sword” question multiple times on previous pages. I apologize if the whole “beating a dead horse” reference was vague. Looking back, I would agree that I may have been overly hasty and as a result, the idea I was trying to convey became secondary to the metaphor.
            My apologies.

  • Anonymous

    For me Inheritance marks the last of some of my favorite books series ending. I feel very sad because I feel that now there arent any book series that I will love as much as this one. When harrypotter ended my thoughts were “if it wasnt for thw inhheritance cycle than i would surely fall into despair….” Now inheritance is about to come out and i dont know what to do…. Anyone have any suggestions on book series that i might like, none will be as good as this, but i really need to get attached to a new series…

    • chimmychonga

      Ranger’s Apprentice series is decent and the Pendragon series is pretty good too if you haven’t read them yet

      • Anonymous

        i have read them both and they didnt really click for me…

      • guest

        yeah, you should definitely read pendragon

      • White Catle

        Ranger’s Apprentice is less than decent. You want real non-Inheritance fantasy, try Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit!

    • ShrimpyJess

      The Hunger Games definately. Also try Leven Thumps or Binding of the Blade.

      • Anonymous

        ive read hunger games. i will try the other two.

        • spine88

          i’ve read the Leven Thumps series and they are very good.

      Pendragon was really good so was Percy Jackson

      • Pendragon was awesome. A little lower on the reading level however

    • Leon Trotsky Trout

      anything by Kurt Vonnegut (Jr).

    • EragonandMurtagh

      i know. i love eragon so much that ive read eragon and eldest 1000 times in 3 years and will read the very last page of brisinger at midnight the day it comes out so that i will have read brisinger in its totality 1000 times as well. i will feel so empty without inheritance cause it has been my life for 3 years.

      I pretty much felt this way about Full Metal Alchemist manga, but i guess i’m okay with it. I’m scared for Homestuck ending too, even though that won’t be for quite a while.
      But there will always be fiction around. Don’t be sad that it’s over, be happy! No more waiting, not knowing what will happen, etc. And you can always re-read the books, although granted that first-time experience in fiction is the best thing.

    • EragonandMurtagh

      try:

      Percy Jackson
      the Kane Chronicles
      Artemis fowl
      Alex rider
      fable haven
      septimus heap
      his dark materials ( the golden compass series)
      inkheart
      seekers
      the secrets of the immortal Nicholas flemmel
      the hunger games
      lord of the rings
      the hobbit
      the chronicles of narnia
      the legend of the guardian king (you should get these as ebooks since the 2nd and 4th books are very expensive cause they are out of print but, it is an amazing series)

      if you are a girl(cause i don’t know):
      the Gallagher girls
      the nine kingdoms books ( this is classified as an adult romance novel but all it has is some very tame smooching in it, my mom lets me read it cause it has less smooching than a teenage romance and it is a great adventure very similar to eragon. just make sure you start off with the ones with morgan and miach cause they are the first. if you go to lynn kurlands website you can find the order of the books)

      these are all great series that i enjoy immensely and i hope you do to.

      • Denmark111

        It’s Nicholas flamel -_-

    Mike can you please clear this up? 

    Glaedr tells Eragon that the soul dies with the body. So how does one explain Gildrein the Wise who appears out of thin air. Is alive or is he an apparition? Can it be that some oaths bind you beyond death – so he has to be a guardian for all eternity?

    thanks.

      bro… its not a rider’s sword because its missing 1 incredibly important element…. precious stones like saphire and diamonds…

    • BlackandWhiteDragons

      Yes, I’ve also seen all the stickers on the front of books in Australia and they’ve pushed it back a day. Wikipedia and Random House lied to us poor Aussies >:( Dammiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit *cries*

    • The Grey Rider

      You’d be surprised by how often Australian retailers will go with the global release date.

  • Arya<3

    … I remember a few months ago when the countdown was 100 days… I would look on Shurtugal every second to see if it had gone any faster, but the days past so fast, and now time is too slow. Not to be dramatic (it is) but I think my life is turning on this point. After this there will be nothing to hope for 🙁 nothing to think about on my spare time.

    • Reese

      I can completely agree. I have nothing better to do with my time, so I find myself just laying here thinking about what might happen in the next book. I’m so excited. D:

    • I remember a few years ago when the countdown was 8 years 😛

  • impatient_and_tired

    my friend in alaska received his copy already and sent me several pics of it with him holding it up and reading in different places around the house to taunt me.  I told his wife and she locked it in her safe as punishment so he only read the first 3 chapters or so now it will sit in her safe till tue or so she promissed.  I wish I could sleep till tues so that time would go by faster.  I keep having dreams about the book coming out though and me sleeping through the release so i wake up and check the date and time at least twice a night.

    Well i am very excited for book 4!!!! dont be that person who spoils it for everyone!!

  • KD

    Good thing. I already came across one possible major spoiler myself thanks to somebody who acquired the book early via a flub and put it out there without any warning, and I am pissed! I should have avoided relevant websites altogether until Tuesday. 🙁

    • Some “spoilers” you read aren’t real spoilers.

      ” avoid roasted cabbages” she said to a puzzled roran.
      enough of a spoiler for you??
      ha ha ha
      a thought just popped into my head. wouldn’t it be hilarious if Angela actually said that in the book????? i can only hope she does so that i can say that i predicted it.
      ha ha ha

  • Dae

    Thank you for posting this! Most times I don’t mind being spoiled, but in this case I don’t want to know ANYTHING beforehand. In fact, from Tuesday until whenever I have read it thoroughly (aka. a couple times), I will be avoiding this website like the plague.

    • EragonandMurtagh

      same, as i’m getting my on the 18th

  • Justin

    The nice thing is that I preordered it on my NookColor and so it automatically downloads at midnight. Isn’t technology great….for causing sleep deprivation

    • Arya<3

      I would have downloaded it on ibooks, but I refused to buy inheritance without having its own volume

    • BlackandWhiteDragons

      Hmm, I actually like to have a paper copy of books, ad besides, I have physical copies of the first three, so it would be weird to have the final one as an e-book or something :/ There’s just something about flicking through the pages, holding it on your stomach whilst laying on the bed spread…. *sighs*

      • EragonandMurtagh

        i feel the same. after all when you finally hold  it in your hands and look at all of those pages  and see all of the pages that you can read and how close you are to the death of galbatorix (not a spoiler, im just 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999%sure that it will happen( basically i know, but the big mystery is by whose sword?)) you will appreciate the physical book better that the digital. basically i will always prefer physical books to e books but, i will admit e books can be more convenient because you can have a library the size of Everest in the palm of your hand that weighs no more than a pound.

        Now, calm down, mad rabbit! Don’t you think about starting an e-Book war on this post! I’m Mike’s right-hand troll cleaner, so don’t be lighting the fuse on any flame wars!

        White Catle,

        Shurtugal’s second-in-charge troll slayer.

  • The Green dragon

    hmmm for some reason i cant see my posts but this is a question for mike if he can see it. i ordered a boxed set with inheritance in it because i lost all of my other books except Brisingr and i want to get them all signed. however there is a weeks lag between when i get the books and when CP comes to birmingham. so i was contemplating buying just a single copy of inheritance so that i could bring that to school so it the one i get signed wont be beat up and stuff. one time when i had a new book when i was in the fifth grade i accidentaly dropped it in mud. so i was just wondering if you thoght that it was a good idea.

    Also i have one final theory before the nxt book comes out:

    remember how Gertrude says thatEargon’s family are fast healers? and also how roran’s senses were almost as fast as eragons after the blood-oath celebration? well, i was reading book 1 for a little bt when i came upon the story of when Galby’s dragon dies and he make it out of the spine. well it said that when he finally came out a farmer found him and helped it somehow. would it be possible that he came upon carvahall, also that it could have been eragon’s ancestor? and that he blessed that farmer and all of his family in the years to come? that would i think explain all of the stuff that happens, with roran’s fast reflexes, their families fast healing, and that eragon was able to touch another beings beside saphira. any thoughts on this? last minute i know but it would still be good. and i swear upon everything that i stand for, have, cherish, and love that i have not recieved a copy of the book and this is just pure speculation, so please do not ban me, i love this website and everything about it.

    • hoke

      interesting theory green dragon. ive never thought of that farmer before… My own little theory is that Galby’s home province of Inzelbeth is now the burning plains, explaining how it is “no more”. Also I think that he could be related to Surda’s royalty, which is why he let them secede from Alagaesia

    • ur mom and i

      chill bruh, its still a freakin book whether its got a signature on it or not. either way its gonna be beat up and stuffed in your bookshelf and maybe pissed on by a ghecko.

    • EragonandMurtagh

      i personally think that this will not come to pass but who knows? after all CP likes to surprise us. but even if i don’t support the theory, it is a good one and could easily be possible. we’ll just have to wait and see. 24 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The Green dragon

    I totally agree with this post! my friend like ruined Harry potter book six for me and i almost hit him on the head.

    • The Green dragon

      unless my computer screwed up again, you may see another post like this but accidentaly said book 7, not 6.

  • The Green dragon

    I also love this post. i had a friend spoil the last part of harry potter for me and i almost hit him in the head. but book 7 was good enough that i forgot what he said as i read the last part of the deathly hallows.

  • Aphilpot86

  • The Grey Rider

    I take it you hired some troll-slayers then…

    If you’re still in the market, I’ve heard of a Dwarf called Gotrek and his human sidekick Felix do that sort of thing, if you’re willing to cross lines and hire them from Warhammer Fantasy. >P

    • I’m the only troll-slayer we need, as I’m the most terrifying of them all!

      • White Catle

        Actually Mike, you and me are both frightening and I could help you slay trolls!! Also, check out my comment on the recent Easter Eggs in IQ post:I suggested you help EA and DICE amke a full video game adaptation of Inheritance for some time in December!

        • The Grey Rider

          After the pile of *expletive deleted* that was the Eragon video game, that’d be cool, particularly if it was the whole cycle.

        • PrometheusLKR

          Making books into movies is hard enough, do you really want to reduce this series to video game level? Again?

          • White Catle

            Now, now, Prometheus, making a VG adaptation Inheritance does not mean the Cycle will be selling out! They could attract an FPS audience with awesome-as-hell online servers, Last Stand mode(a mode similar to Horde from GoW 3 and Halo’s Firefight, with up to 4 players, but instead with progressively stronger and larger Imperial troops), and Dragon Hunter mode, where you and up to 7 other people play as the Ra’zac and try to destroy dragon eggs in a time limit, as well as assassinate surviving Riders and Varden soldiers! Plus, you could add people to you online Friends list! It would be BF3 in aan Inheritance Cycle package! Like your idea as well, Grey Rider!!

          • Mr-x

            They should just make it into a MMORPG to be honest but say not everyone gets to be a dragon rider say when you buy the game if your copy comes with an egg in it you can redeem that code to unlock the dragon rider class maybe otherwise feel free to roll on which ever class you want

          • White Catle

             I like the dragon-egg code thing…kinda like BF3, which came with a redeemable EA online pass! But I really just want to play as Thorn online…offline, the Ra’zac is the class for me!:)

            White Catle,

        Keep up the good work.

        Hopefully no one will try posting bits through-
        No I won’t say it, otherwise someone will probably do it, and that’d be impossible to police.

  • The Grey Rider

    It’s hard to believe there are only two (or three depending on your timezone) days left before Inheritance comes out.

    Paolini might have the world’s slowest update rate, (THREE years to a book?) but this’ll make it all worth it.
    It’s just the wait that’s killing me now, and the fact it’s the ass-end of the year with exams…
    They make things THAT MUCH longer.
    The wait is killing me! *sob*

    • The Green dragon

      the reason i think that it takes so long is that he has to keep referencing all of is work with the ancient langauge and stuff and the books are soooooo long, which i do actually enjoy.

      • PrometheusLKR

        I would love to see him write ‘Eragon’s Guide to the Ancient Language,’ which would include a good amount of common vocab and grammar rules. maybe even a section about the elven alphabet.

      • EragonandMurtagh

    • Three years is not a long time to wait for a 900 page book. It isn’t uncommon either, definitely not world’s slowest.

      • The Grey Rider

        Seems that way when you’re between good books.

        • Very Long Time Lurker

          Ha. Imagine trying to suffer through a wait that was twice as long, knowing that the book is not finished, and knowing that the author is having particular difficulties with certain characters and/or is suffering from writer’s block. All the while there are release dates and deadlines announced that come and go and there is still no book or even an announcement that the book is finished. All the while wondering if the author might die (yes, I know that’s a selfish thought, but you’d be thinking the same if Paolini was old and obese, had seemingly unhealthy eating habits, and traveled and drank often) before their work is finished. Yeah. Imagine that. Now imagine how relatively fortunate we all are, to have a place like Shurtugal that caters to us and labors in slave-like fashion to bring us any new information. The wait between Brisingr and Inheritance was actually easy, in comparison with other series’, and it was definitely 100% bearable. It’s the fans need for instant gratification and the I-want-it-now attitude that made it unbearable. Most folks had no idea what a truly unbearable wait was like, and so they made it worse on themselves. MIKE, I very much look forward to seeing what the future holds for you and Shurtugal, and I hope most everyone who frequents the site stays around once the furor over the Inheritance Cycle dies down. I understand that this will be the closing of a chapter in your life, and I anticipate the opening of a new one soon. Congratulations Mike, you’ve accomplished a very great deal. You have done well. You struck out to do right by the fans of Christopher Paolini and Eragon, and boy did you ever. The days of the Inheritance Cycle are soon to be over, but I have no doubt that like Paolini, you’re just getting started. I have a suggestion that you might want to take. I think that perhaps sometimes in the next year or so,  you might think about publishing an article that would inform the fans of possible future endeavors or plans or just ideas you might have. Maybe a course of action or something of the like. Just a thought. I think it could reassure the fans and help ease some of the grief that is sure to abound once it truly sinks in that the Cycle is done. Anyway, good luck, Mr. Macauley!!

      • Hey, I was wondering Mike…Have you received an advanced copy of Inheritance ?
        You know, being the one in charge of the official fan website and all, I thought that maybe you had received a preferential treatment. If so, you’re really lucky !I, for one, had no choice but to buy it only, because I never know if my library will receive it on time.Also, do you know if the Limited Signed Edition available on Amazon was personally signed by Christopher, or if it is the same one printed in each book ? You can view it here : http://goo.gl/Y12qlAnyway, that’s the version I decided to buy, since I won’t be able to attend any of the places in the Tour. Sometimes, it really sucks to live in Quebec, Canada.

    • ghg

      George R. R. Martin puts out an A Song of Ice and Fire book once every 5 years.  The last one took almost 6 years.  It took Stephen King almost 40 years to complete The Dark Tower series (7 books).  Paolini is actually pretty quick at getting books out if you compare him to other epic fantasy writers.

  • THEJOKER

    There’s a chapter called “Brains” if you didn’t know that, Paolini said so long ago

  • Thou shalt not spoil “Inheritance” or banishment on Shur’tugal is thee punishment! Party poopers and non-Paolini-approved-Inheritance-spoilers shalt not be tolerated!!

    Some folks must have forgotten this rule or they must not have thought it concerned them. I think banishment is an acceptable punishment in this case. High-five! ;D Anyone who does this is an automatic douche-bag for life.

      its pretty good, actually.

      I’m pretty sure that it comes out on midnight between the seventh and the eighth. I may be wrong though.

      • Arya<3

        so like monday to tuesday

        • mitch Delemeester

          Monday ends at 11:59 pm, and at 12:00 am on Tuesday, the next minute, the book is technically released.  Also, you could just add the official countdown time to the current time to figure out the day. :p

        also of course DST ends tomarrow so we have to wait an entire other hour 🙁

          • I can understand why they did this, but it is kind of pointless to do this when the rest of the world doesn’t play along. Oh well. I preordered mine, but if the NZ postal service is anything to judge by, I probably won’t be getting Inheritance until late next week.

            I ordered Brisignr online and it arrived over a week later, so this time I ordered a copy through Paper Plus. Though, I’m now wishing I had ordered through Whitcoull’s, because they are giving away a copy of Eragon’s Guide to Alagaesia (free!) with every Inheritance order…

          • Sean

            i ordered mine in-store from dymocks (im in australia) and also got a free copy of Eragons guide. 😀

          • Deddyloter

            I did the exact same 😀

          • Mr-x

            same here haha when the special orders clerk handed over The guide i was like O.o sweet haha

          • You’re kidding, right? I ordered mine from there a couple days ago, and I never heard that…

            I got a mailer yesterday and that’s what it said

          • Inheritance FTW

            Fishpond has it on the eighth.

          • Anonymous

            Fishpond says that Inheritance is shipped from the US on the 8th. That means a good 10 days before it will arrive.

          • Thier91q

            holland has it on the 17th :'(

            Swedish translation release is november 9. Hah!

  • guest

    hey Mike, how soon after it’s release will potential spoilers be posted? I might not be able to get the book for a few days once it is released and want to know if I should avoid this site until I finish it, or will spoilers be clearly marked.

    • I will not post any spoilers in news posts unless clearly marked, HOWEVER, I cannot say the same for the comment section. You will be safe to read news posts, just don’t venture into the comments.

      • The Grey Rider

        Just out interest, how long do  you plan on keeping this edict on ‘standing order’ status?

  • Bumdeal

    I didnt mean to make you mad mike. I thought even you would like to know some little hints.
    I mentioned in one of my postings i wouldnt spoil the book and i didnt. either way i am sorry.
    long time fan

      It’s not just Mike, but for the benefit of all the fans on this site. Many people don’t want any little hints at all.

    • I’m not worried about myself — I know what to expect here. I’m worried about other fans who don’t realize there might be spoilers lurking.

  • Turdistinky

    • Arya<3

      what?lol

  • Book4owner

    YAY thx u!! now im less afraid of reading the comments!!! thx mike!!

    Thanks Mike! I was totally afraid to read the comments just incase of spoilers!

  • Deb M

    Bravo! Well said.

    • Deb M

      I just thought of something.  Will the release counter be able to handle daylight savings time?

      • Anonymous

        Eh, it’ll be close enough. Besides, who’s gonna be looking at the countdown then anyway? Everyone whos up that whole time will be be out getting the book!

      • Yep.

        (As long as your computer can…)

        • DSGKing

          Somewhat similar topic…does anyone know if the e-reader releases will be based on time-zone or will those of us on the west coast have them delivered at 12 am Eastern? Also, if that is how it works, what date is daylight savings(I’m in Arizona and we don’t have to deal with that, our time never changes)?

          • The Green dragon

            i know that it will be available on ebooks the moment it is released in NYC cus i have one and i can get them an hour earlier (central time zone)

          • DSGKing

            Beautiful, I’ll be getting mine at 10 then. Too bad for daylight savings though, could have been 9 hahaha

          • The Green dragon

            You mean 11 actually cus we lost the hour not gained.

  • Denmark111

    Good to know, but how about after the release? Will those of us unable to get the book still be able to visit the place and not get bombarded with spoilers?

    • Anonymous

      I saw Mike answered this somewhere else, so I’ll just help. The news feed will be spoiler-free, or at least have warnings before jumps. However, you may want to steer clear of the comments, because past the 8th they’ll most likely be full of them.

      • Denmark111

        Ok, thank you 🙂

    • You’re safe to read any news story I publish (just watch for if I say SPOILER WARNING!) without being spoiled, just don’t read comments.

  • Cory Knoll

    Mike, did you delete my post because I mentioned that I post on another fan site? I didn’t link it, or even name it. What was wrong with my post? I supported your post! I even “liked” it!

    • Cory Knoll

      Nevermind. There was some lag before they were posted for some reason.

  • Cory Knoll

    Just had to post something like this over on the other fansite I frequent. Some readers in South Africa actually got theirs delivered to them as early as Wednesday. It’s definitely a good idea to stop it before it happens. Good on you, Shurtugal.

  • Shurtefly

    Thanks there’s been way too many people posting spoilers

    • Belgarion

      Where are the spoilers?  Please tell me!
       

      • Austin Littley

        Things that give away stuff about the new book, like who dies and how it ends.

        • PrometheusLKR

          “Where are the spoilers,” not “what are spoilers.”

      • Anonymous

        Don’t ask for spoilers please

      • Arya<3

        They WERE in the comments section of the other posts, but Mike, thankfully, deleted them. Just keep looking if you have time and want to see them, but then flag them so no one can see them.

  • Thank you for posting this. ;D

  • guest

    thank you Mike are you going to tour with christopher

    • I’ll be joining him on a few of his stops, but not too many.

      • Kronk911

         Like Kansas City possibly? Cause I wouldn’t mind meeting the both of you, plus, it’s hard to pass up good old fashion KC BarBQue

      • Ryan

        hey mike, i’ve loved your podcasts over the past months.  After listening to this last one I really wanted to asked Christopher more about the bond between shruikin and Galbatorix–the nature of it, its strengths or weaknesses, and if/how it changes over time…I know you are christopher are super busy…but I would love to simply be directed to a discussion on this if one has been made or if that may be something you want to explore another time…Thanks again for all you do with shurtugal etc.

      • If I see you I’ll make sure to ask for an autograph (:

      • Ashley A

        Oh my gosh! That would so cool if I saw you and Christopher! Fingers crossed! Will Lauren, Chris, or Bob be at any of the stops? Also, do you know if Michelle will be at any of the stops? Thanks for everything, Mike! 🙂

        • Michelle will be at the NYC stop.

          • The Green dragon

            will you be in the birmingham stop? (USA)

          • And me!

      • The Grey Rider

        Does CP intend to come down to Australia at some time in the future?
        We might be at the bottom of the world and all, but there’re fans here to.

  • Coasterking

    thanks mike for saying that i dont want the book ruined before i can read it

  • Ronan Baird

    Wohoo first comment! Are you going to the midnight release Mike? If so, Dressed up as who?

    • I’ll be at the official book launch in NYC for Christopher’s big event. I’ll be dressed as the best Inheritance character of all: Mike Macauley!

      • Elena Shadeslayer

        im going there!!! maybe ill see u!!! 😀

        • I’ll be there, too!

          • bromandsaphira

            you lucky people…

          • The Grey Rider

            Hey, us over here in Australia get practically a day’s headstart.
            Shame that I’ve got a bloody *school* (note heavy contempt) day between me and my getting my hands on the book…

          • Juan Mata

            I can’t go to the official launch. But as I live in the UK, I have a five hour headstart over any of you yanks due to the time difference.

            Catch me if you can!

            Oh and well done Mike, Lauren and Cletus on completing all 20 episodes of the podcast. And well done Bob for going through all of it and editing it.

          • The Green dragon

            Cletus?

          • Hahaha

  • Eragon & Saphira

    Yep bout right  i have been waiting a long time for inheritence and over the years i only found out the title of the book which was in an interview

  • jjacobsnd5

    Ganondorf dies…am I in trouble? 😛

    • Speedsk8
