Christopher Paolini announces a new 10th anniversary edition of Eragon, set to feature new artwork

Christopher Paolini took to Twitter to announce that he’s started work on his contribution to what will become the 10th anniversary edition of Eragon! Eragon was first published by Random House Children’s Books in 2003 after the rights were purchased from the Paolini family, retiring their self-published edition.

Christopher shared that six illustrations in total will be included in the 10th anniversary edition, each illustrated by a different artist. Christopher has yet to announce the other six artists and what they’ll be illustrating, but he has shared what he’s working on:


Random House, publisher of the Inheritance cycle, has yet to release any details on when this book will be made available and what its cost will be. Christopher has stated that the book is slated for a release “later this year”. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more!

Don’t forget: you can follow Christopher Paolini on his official Twitter account at @InheritanceCP! Shur’tugal also has its own official Twitter account at @itsshurty!
