It has been over 20 years since a really younger Chrisopher Paolini appeared on the YA fantasy scene with Eragon, the story of a boy and his dragon. The e book began the legacy cycle, which ended (for now?) with Legacy in 2011.
However Paolini will not be completed with the world of Alagaësia. Weekly leisure revealed cover (with artwork by John Jude Palencar) for a brand new standalone set in the identical fantasy world: Murtaghcoming this fall.
Murtagh focuses on the titular character, a rival to Eragon, and takes place one yr after the top of the earlier sequence. Right here is the editor’s abstract:
The world is not protected for Dragon Rider Murtagh and his dragon, Thorn. An evil king has been overthrown and so they should cope with the results of the reluctant function they performed in his reign of terror. Now they’re hated and alone, exiled to the periphery of society.
Throughout the land, muffled voices whisper of fragile soil and a faint odor of sulfur within the air – and Murtagh senses that one thing depraved lurks within the shadows of Alagaësia. Thus begins an epic journey into lands each acquainted and uncharted, the place Murtagh and Thorn should use each weapon of their arsenal, from brains to brawn, to search out and outsmart a mysterious witch. A witch who’s greater than she seems.
On RedditPaolini clarified some particulars about this e book and its relation to the inheritance cycle:
To be clear, Murtagh will not be a spin-off. It isn’t a narrative. And it isn’t a single occasion that will not hook up with subsequent occasions. It is a direct continuation of the legacy cycle and an important and essential a part of what I do in Alagaësia. Additionally, a few of the questions I left unanswered on the finish of Legacy are answered in Murtagh, so do not suppose I am leaving you all hanging. It will be imply.
With a brand new illustrated version of Eragon, Murtagh hits cabinets November 7.
