Synopsis
A wanderer and a cursed child. Spells and magic. And dragons, of course. Welcome back to the world of Alagaësia.

It’s been a year since Eragon departed Alagaësia in search of the perfect home to train a new generation of Dragon Riders. Now he is struggling with an endless sea of tasks: constructing a vast dragonhold, wrangling with suppliers, guarding dragon eggs, and dealing with belligerent Urgals and haughty elves. Then a vision from the Eldunarí, unexpected visitors, and an exciting Urgal legend offer a much-needed distraction and a new perspective.

This volume features three original stories set in Alagaësia, interspersed with scenes from Eragon’s own unfolding adventure. Included is an excerpt from the memoir of the unforgettable witch and fortune-teller Angela the herbalist . . . penned by Angela Paolini, the inspiration for the character, herself!

Relish the incomparable imagination of Christopher Paolini in this thrilling new collection of stories based in the world of the Inheritance Cycle. Includes four new pieces of original art by the author.

What I thought
Okay, guys, this is going to be short and sweet. First Yes you need to have read The Inheritance Cycle series before you pick up this book. Your knowledge does not need to be recent but you will be lost if you do not know who the main characters were. 

In this book, you get three short stories that all take place after Inheritance. One involves Murtagh, the next is about Angela and Elva and the last is an old story told from one of the races. Haha, you have to read it to find out, I can’t give everything away.

All in all, I feel that this was a bridge book to the next series that he writes in this world. The ending set that up very nicely for that. If you enjoyed the series and want to see what is going on with those characters you should definitely pick this up. I do warn you I thought that the last story was too long but that is just me.

My Rating: /54 Stars

Waiting On Wednesday: The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia by Christopher Paolini

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.

This week I’ve chosen: The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia
