About the Author
Christopher Paolini's abiding love of fantasy and science fiction inspired him to begin writing his debut novel, "Eragon," when he graduated from high school at fifteen after being homeschooled all his life. Both "Eragon" and "Eldest," the second book in the Inheritance cycle, became instant "New York Times" bestsellers. Christopher is currently at work on "Brisingr," the third volume in the cycle. He lives in Montana, where the dramatic landscape feeds his visions of Alagaesia. You can find out more about Christopher and Inheritance at www.alagaesia.com.
