What About Book Four in the Series by Christopher Paolini?

While Christopher Paolini originally planned to write a trilogy, he has since changed his mind.

    “‘I plotted out the Inheritance series as a trilogy nine years ago, when I was fifteen. At that time, I never imagined I’d write all three books, much less that they would be published’ said Paolini. ‘When I finally delved into Book Three, it soon became obvious that the remainder of the story was far too big to fit in one volume. Having spent so long thinking about the series as a trilogy, it was difficult for me to realize that, in order to be true to my characters and to address all of the plot points and unanswered questions Eragon andEldest raised, I needed to split the end of the series into two books.'” (October 30, 2007 Random House Children’s Books news release)

Why the Title Brisingr?

As for the title,

    “‘BRISINGR is one of the first words I thought of for this title, and it’s always felt right to me,’ said Christopher Paolini. ‘As the first ancient-language word that Eragon learns, it has held particular significance for his legacy as a Dragon Rider. In this new book, it will be revealed to be even more meaningful that even Eragon could have known.'” (January 16, 2008 Random House Children’s Books news release)

The First Printing and Release Date of Brisingr

The first printing of 2.5 million copies of the fantasy novel is the largest initial run for a Random House Children’s Books title in the publisher’s history. The book will be released at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, September 20, 2008, so booksellers can host midnight launch parties, such as those held for the Harry Potter series. Random House’s Listening Library division will publish the audiobook simultaneously in the U.S. Paolini’s fantasy novels have been enormously popular, particularly with teens and and adults. According to the publisher, 12.5 million copies of Eragon and Eldest have been sold worldwide.
