Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Tour Begins Today!

Back in 2002, the then-young Christopher Paolini stormed the castle of fantasy fiction with his magical debut novel, Eragon. Followed by Eldest in 2005 and then Brisingr in 2008, the dragons of the world of Alagaseia have swooped in and embedded their claws firmly into the public consciousness. And today, this beloved fantasy series is completing its journey. Inheritance, the conclusion of The Inheritance Cycle has just been released and Paolini is hitting the road to promote the book.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and once fought an outer space dragon just so it could adapt that story into a picture book. Stubby does its research, ya’ll.

No Portland visit? Lazy bastard! ;-)

I started listening to the Eragon audio book with very low expectations. By the end, I was feeling pleasantly surprised.

By the end of Eldest, I was feeling fairly intrigued and eager for the next installment.

Yeah, if you blur your eyes there's a kind of Star Wars in Middle Earth vibe, but only if you blur your eyes. This is good crunchy fantasy, perfect for listening to during long weekend dog-walks.

I don't respect Paolini as an author at all. He blatantly ripped off concepts from many much more skilled authors. The dragons were from McCaffery's Pern novels, the 'one true language' idea was straight from LeGuin's Wizard of Earthsea trilogy, and the setting and races (dwarves, elves, etc) felt like an iteration of Tolkien.

That being said, he's added enough of his own to make the books compelling and I'll be reading the new one to finish the series.
