Readers will see Eragon and Arya again at some point. The prequel story of Brom's life and the story following the mysterious women are among the "smaller stories" planned, while the primary book five "involves something else entirely.

When asked a question about the fates of Murtagh and Thorn , Paolini replied with "read book five". Brom's seven words will be addressed in a short story aside from the main cycle.

Paolini stated that he regards the Cycle as being the tale of the beginning of Eragon's long life. Paolini is currently considering writing an epilogue to the series as a whole.

He also confirmed that it was "possible" that Elva could become a Dragon Rider in the future. However, Paolini voiced his concerns that making Elva a Rider would make her "overpowered", citing her "amazing ability". He said, "being a Rider as well seems like overkill to me", but also revealed, "If she were, though, she'd be pretty scary. Even Galbatorix wouldn't have stood a chance against her". He also confirmed that, like human and elf Dragon Riders , dwarf and Urgal Riders would "slowly acquire pointed, elf-like ears over the course of five-ten years" and "acquire greater grace and strength", though dwarf and Urgal Riders would "never quite match the pound-for-pound strength of an elf, even if, objectively, they're stronger such as with a Kull ".

Paolini also said, "Over the course of their lives, one might say that a dwarf or Urgal Rider would end up refined, as if they had been distilled to the essence of both their individual self and the essence of their race. Book 5 will reveal more about Angela's back story. The story of Eragon, Saphira and the Menoa Tree will be continued.

Spoilers regarding Murtagh were briefly touched upon with the words "no comment". Spirits will play a part in the future.


Another "no comment" answer was given to a questioner who asked whether or not Arya or Murtagh would visit the new home of the Riders and also to the question of whether future Riders would be taught the Name of Names. The matter of how new Riders would obtain their swords will be addressed.

Paolini has considered writing a book about Murtagh. Paolini would like to write a short story entirely from a dragon's point of view. He may "do something" with the idea of Jeod riding Saphira, as it was promised to him.

Book 5 will also be a "continuation" or sequel, though Paolini said that he "may write a prequel at some point". Dwarf or Urgal Dragon Riders may be introduced. Killed by Brom during the Batte of the Riders Plot summary Edit Eragon, a fifteen-year-old farmboy, brings home a blue ' stone ' from the mountain range known as the Spine , hoping it will download his family meat for the winter.

Instead, from it hatches a blue dragon named Saphira, making Eragon a Dragon Rider. According to the storyteller, Brom, in Eragon's home village, Carvahall , the Dragon Riders and dragons were mostly destroyed about a hundred years ago by an evil Rider, Galbatorix; his dragon, Shruikan; and thirteen other Riders and their dragons, called the Thirteen Forsworn.


Due to Riders' immortality, Galbatorix is still king, but there is an opposite side of rebels called the Varden, along with dwarves and elves , who oppose him. Eragon lives with his uncle, Garrow , and his cousin, Roran; his uncle's wife, Marian , died a few years ago; Garrow's sister, Selena , Eragon's mother, left after giving birth; and his father is unknown.

When Saphira is several months old, two cloaked strangers, called the Ra'zac , burn Eragon's farm, and kill Garrow.

Eragon and Saphira set off to get revenge. They are joined by Brom, who teaches Eragon swordsmanship and magic. He gives Eragon a Rider's sword, called Zar'roc. While visiting Brom's old friend, Jeod , Eragon's fortune is told by Angela the herbalist. He also gets advice from a werecat , Solembum , that there is a weapon under the roots of the " Menoa Tree " and he should go to the Rock of Kuthian and speak his name to the Vault of Souls to gain enormous power.

The Ra'zac find them and kidnap them, but they are rescued by a young man named Murtagh. Brom dies from his wounds, revealing that he was once a Rider. He founded the Varden, stole Saphira's egg from Galbatorix with Jeod's help, and killed Morzan, the first and last of the Forsworn, and took his sword, which was Zar'roc. Eragon and Saphira then set off with Murtagh to find the Varden. On their way, they rescue an elf named Arya, whom Eragon saw several times in his dreams, and who tells them how to get to the Varden.

When the travelers arrive, Murtagh is locked up by two twin magicians because he is revealed to be Morzan's son, and Eragon and Saphira join the army. Eragon and Saphira begin to receive renown, and they bless a baby, Elva , in the Ancient Language with magic.

Before he leaves, however, more Urgals come. They kill Ajihad, and Murtagh and the Twins are assumed dead. Ajihad's daughter, Nasuada, leads the Varden to the small independent country of Surda.


Saphira promises the dwarf king, Hrothgar , that she will repair a Star Sapphire that she destroyed in the battle. Before he leaves, Eragon is adopted into Hrothgar's dwarf clan. The Ra'zac return to Carvahall to capture Eragon's cousin, Roran. Instead, they capture his beloved, Katrina , and her father, Sloan , the butcher, who betrays the village by murdering a watchman , as he selfishly didn't want to lose his daughter.

With nothing left in Carvahall, Roran leads the villagers to Surda, all under his command. On the way, they are joined by Jeod, who tells them about Eragon. Eragon and Saphira's tutelage was to be under an ancient Rider named Oromis and his dragon, Glaedr.

Oromis and Glaedr tutor Eragon and Saphira from magic to fighting, even literacy, and help make their mental link to each other even deeper. It turns out that when Eragon blessed Elva, he actually cursed her through bad grammar. Instead of shielding her from misfortune, he made her a shield. She now appears to be a young child, but acts and speaks like an adult. During his training, Eragon repeatedly suffers bouts of pain from the scar received from Durza, which raises criticism from his sword partner, Vanir.

At an elven celebration, Eragon is turned into a human -elf hybrid, gaining elf-like abilities. He keeps going after Arya, but she rejects him every time. Eventually, she returns to the Varden.

The Varden have joined forces with king Orrin of Surda and lead their army to a place called the Burning Plains on the border between the Empire and Surda. Eragon, Saphira, and Orik arrive just before the battle after magically seeing that they are in danger.

Roran, Jeod, and the villagers arrive and start fighting too, as do an army of dwarves. The tide of the battle turns when a mysterious red dragon and Rider appear on the side of Galbatorix, kill Hrothgar, and challenge Eragon. The Rider turns out to be Murtagh, and his dragon is Thorn. They were tortured by Galbatorix and forced to serve him after he discovered their True Names.

Murtagh stated that Selena was also his own mother, and Eragon is also the son of Morzan. Since Murtagh is the eldest, he takes Zar'roc from a battle weary Eragon. The Twins also appear, leading the Empire, but are killed by Roran. After the battle, Eragon promises Roran to kill the Ra'zac and rescue Katrina with him. The two of them, and Saphira go to Helgrind , the Ra'zac's lair, and kill one of them, while Saphira kills the two Lethrblaka, their parents and steeds.

Nasuada is injured because she endured a trial with one of her own tribe to see who could endure the most pain and lead the Varden.

Eragon, meanwhile, staying at Helgrind, kills the last Ra'zac and punishes Sloan. Eragon travels back for the Varden, and is later joined by Arya on the way. Back at the Varden, Eragon offers to take back the curse on Elva, but she declines the offer. Murtagh and Thorn attack, and Saphira bites off Thorn's tail, forcing them both to retreat. Eragon marries Roran and Katrina after the battle.

Because of Hrothgar's death, the dwarves are choosing a new king. Nasuada sends Eragon to make sure they choose Orik, as he is loyal to the Varden.

Orik turns this to his advantage and is chosen. At the coronation, Saphira arrives and repairs the Isidar Mithrim.

Remembering Solembum's advice, Eragon looks under the Menoa Tree and finds some "brightsteel", but the tree makes Eragon and Saphira make a promise to repay her for giving it to them, but it is never stated. Roran has been sent on a few missions in the southern part of the Empire. One of these is to get the Varden's humans to trust a group of Urgals who have joined the Varden.

His bravery quickly makes him rise to become a Varden commander. Eventually the Varden attack the city known as Feinster. Eragon and Saphira arrive in the nick of time and turn the tide of the battle. While Eragon is feeling the tragedy, Arya is fighting a new Shade called Varaug. Eragon distracts him long enough to let Arya kill him. The battle of Feinster ends, and Nasuada makes plans to attack other Empire cities and kill Galbatorix.

Critical reaction Edit Inheritance became a commercial success, with the first two books topping several different bestselling charts. However, Inheritance has also been accused of plagiarism.


The story has basically been called having a Star Wars plot with a Lord of the Rings atmosphere and names. A boy of foggy origins lives with his uncle in a remote, backwater region of a vast empire headed by an evil Emperor and his right-hand man, who was once prominent in an ancient order of guardians with mystical powers.They kill Ajihad, and Murtagh and the Twins are assumed dead. Eragon remembers Solembum's advice from the first book Eragon telling about the Vault of Souls and the Rock of Kuthian.

Eragon and Saphira arrive in the nick of time and turn the tide of the battle. Eragon and Arya struggle and injure themselves while being held captive until Angela and Solembum save them. After a while on the island, Eragon and Saphira learn that they must speak their true names in order for the Rock of Kuthian to allow them to enter.
