Title and Cover Reveal for final book in Paolini's Inheritance Cycle

Eagerly awaited by millions around the world, the conclusion to Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance cycle will arrive November 8th, it was announced today by Alfred A. Knopf Books. Following Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr, the fourth and final book in the series will be titled INHERITANCE, a fitting designation for the concluding novel in Paolini’s epic fantasy.

“The burning questions asked by fans around the world will finally be answered in this last installment,” said Christopher Paolini. “All will be revealed!”

INHERITANCE will have a first printing of 2.5 million copies. The green dragon on the cover of INHERITANCE was illustrated by the John Jude Palencar, illustrator of the Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr covers.

FYI: All three were #1 New York Times bestsellers in the United States. To date, there are 49 foreign-language licenses for Eragon alone, and together the first three books in the series have sold 25 million copies worldwide.
