Book Three

  • Christopher Paolini

The third gripping book of The Inheritance Cycle.

Master storyteller and internationally bestselling author Christopher Paolini returns to the World of Eragon with Murtagh. Murtagh, a stunning epic fantasy set a year after the events of the Inheritance Cycle, will publish in 2023.

The third book in The Inheritance Cycle

More awaits Eragon and Saphira following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors.

He's bound by promises he may not be able to keep, including his oath to his cousin Roran to rescue his beloved Katrina.

When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes, Eragon must make choices that take him across the Empire and beyond. Choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Conflict, action, adventure and one devastating death await readers as Eragon battles on behalf of the Varden while Galbatorix ruthlessly attempts to crush and twist him to his own purposes.

Can he become a leader who can unite the rebel forces and defeat the King?
