The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm, which releases tomorrow, is the first addition to the Inheritance Cycle since the release of Inheritance! The novel features three original stories set in Alagaësia, interspersed with scenes from Eragon’s own unfolding adventure as he struggles with an endless sea of tasks: constructing a vast dragonhold, wrangling with suppliers, guarding dragon eggs, and dealing with belligerent Urgals and haughty elves.
If you haven’t already, be sure to pre-order a copy of the book!
