Did anybody read the Inheritence series? Paolini announced that he's written another book. Murtagh.

I'm curious to see where this picks up.
I will definitely be needing to reread the first four books for a little refresher. I haven't picked up these books in about 10 years.Murtagh is set roughly one year after the events of Inheritance and is a direct sequel to the original four books (and The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm). The book releases on November 7th, 2023 and is available for pre-order now.
What are you most excited for? Do you think it's going to be mainly focused on Murtagh, or do you think Eragon and Arya will make a big appearance?
Whoa, no way! Man, I haven't read those books in ages, but Murtaugh was always my favorite character. (I love the emo boys lol.) I may just have to reread as well 👀
I really hope that if Eragon/Arya/Saphira make an appearance that they'll only be at the end. I'd LOVE to see a book focused on Murtaugh's Dragon Rider history and growing up with Thorn.

I want this book to be 99% about Murtagh, and then at the end, we get to catch up with the others.
Hopefully this will inspire him to continue writing this series (sub series possibly?). It was one of my favorites growing up, and I just bought the set again (I have it on my kindle, but it's not the same, which I'm sure you know).
I loved the original books when I was a teen and still largely remember them, so I'll likely pick up this one (especially as murtagh was one of my favourites, d once its out in bookstores. Excited to read it, mainly because I'm sure that Paolini's writing must have improved notably between the last inheritance cycle book and this one d:
Oh wow. It's been ages since I read the original series in full. I'm with Butterbird, I'm excited to see how his writing has improved! The last book felt a little too long and a bit too much like a mashup between Star Wars and LOTR but I enjoyed the series as a whole.
Looks like I'll be rereading these this year in preparation!
I only realized there was the original series - I hadn't heard of that The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm book. I just looked it up and it said it was the first book in the new series, but it looks like there hasn't been another since then (2018?) and it doesn't seem like this new Murtaugh book is part of that series.
Excited to see this series is still going. I loved it so much when I was a kid. I remember how excited I was when the movie came out and going opening night to it, and when everyone was convinced the third book (back when it was only going to be a trilogy) was going to be called "Empire."
God, that was a nostalgia tsunami.
My teenage self would be freaking tf out right now. I was so obsessed with those books in middle school, and Murtagh was always my favorite character. I remember Paolini stated in the afterword (I think??) of Inheritance that he wished to continue writing in that universe one day, but I didn't think it would actually happen. Guess it's time for a reread! Thanks for making this post-- I would have had no idea otherwise.
