Description of this Book

A wanderer and a cursed child. Spells and magic. And dragons, of course. Welcome back to the world of Alagaesia. It' s been a year since Eragon departed Alagesia in search of the perfect home to train a new generation of Dragon Riders. Now he is struggling with an endless sea of tasks- constructing a vast dragonhold, wrangling with suppliers, guarding dragon eggs and dealing with belligerent Urgals and haughty elves. Then a vision from the Eldunari, unexpected visitors and an exciting Urgal legend offer a much-needed distraction and a new perspective. This volume features three original stories set in Alagaesia, interspersed with scenes from Eragon' s own unfolding adventure. Included is an excerpt from the memoir of the unforgettable witch and fortune-teller Angela the herbalist, penned by Angela Paolini, the inspiration for the character, herself! Relish the incomparable imagination of Christopher Paolini in this thrilling new collection of stories based in the world of the Inheritance Cycle.

He became a number one bestselling author at nineteen and spent the next decade immersed in the world of Alagaesia. Also an accomplished artist, Christopher drew the interior art for the books. In his spare time he enjoys sharpening knives, playing video games, lifting heavy things and searching for the perfect leather-bound notebook.
