The Inheritance Cycle Book Club is a podcast-styled read-through of Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr aimed at refreshing fans and entertaining new readers as we venture toward the release of Inheritance. Each of the twenty episodes will discuss set portions of the books, in order, and will tackle the events of each reading, theories arising from the reading, and more. Join us for our adventure through the series!

Episode twelve marks the end of ELDEST and the lead-in to the final released novel in the book… which means that INHERITANCE is under two months away! The twelfth installment of Shurtugal.com’s Inheritance Cycle Book Club Podcast has finally arrived, better late than never! Our latest episode tackles the final set of chapters from Eldest, discussing the important events of this week’s set of reading. Join us as we discuss the Battle of the Burning Plains, including Hrothgar’s death, Murtagh’s betrayal, Roran and Eragon’s first encounter since Carvahall, Angela’s lectures, promises to Elva, and more! Plus we tackle some fantastic fan questions and theories related to this section in our spoiler section at the end of the podcast. Be sure to read along as we read through all three books over the next twenty weeks
