This comes as no surprise, but we’re excited to report it nonetheless! Christopher Paolini’s fourth and final novel in the Inheritance Cycle launched with an incredible first day sales record, pushing past all other book releases (both fiction and non-fiction) in 2011 to become the year’s largest single-day book sale! Inheritance sold an astonishing 490,000 books in its first twenty-four hours on sale! Incredible! Inheritance is now the number one book on Amazon’s Best-Sellers list, where it has sat for a great number of weeks now, and will surely join Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr atop the number one spot on the New York Times Best-Sellers list!
Here’s what Christopher Paolini had to say about the feat:
“This is both a thrilling and gratifying end to a wonderful journey that began more than a decade ago. I could have never imagined that the Inheritance cycle would become what it has, and I’m grateful to the fans for their continued support and enthusiasm. I look forward to seeing them in person on my tour this month, but most of all, I hope they enjoy the book!”
