Inheritance Cycle Book 4 announced

Inheritance Cover (Inheritance Cycle Book 4)I have a bit of a history with the Inheritance Cycle. I read them first in year 6- when I was 11 years old. I loved them then, and they were my fantasy Bible. The Inheritance Cycle is what brought me to the internet; I discovered a forum where thousands of people were discussing the books, and I became a member leading up to the publication of Brisingr, the third book in the cycle. The Inheritance Forums, as they are known, became a large part of my life for two years. At first I spent time discussing the novels- but as I grew older, I discovered that the Inheritance Cycle wasn’t the end all of the fantasy genre, and I became less and less interested in them. I stayed on the forums- content to talk about non-Inheritance stuffs with the many amazing people I had met there (although called the Inheritance Forums, back then, they also had a very large non-Inheritance discussion and community, and it is this I became a part of). Essentially, the Inheritance Cycle was the beginning of my online presences.

I haven’t read the Cycle in a while, so I can’t really comment on my enjoyment of them. But for old times’ sake, I wanted to share the news, whether you are a fan or not (because, frankly, the Cycle has some of the most amazing cover art, ever!)

The news is as follows:

  • The fourth and final book in the Inheritance Cycle will be called INHERITANCE
  • It will be published simultaneously in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on Tuseday the 8th November 2011
  • The three previous novels in the series (Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr) will be re-published with new covers by the same artist, John Jude Palencar, on July 7th

The Cover, also has been released and can be seen at the top of this page. I knew the cover would be green and would feature a dragon; but I was mildy disappointd by it. It seems a bit to similar to the cover of Eragon for my liking, and it just feels slightly less majestic than the Brisingr cover, which was glorious. I await to see what it looks like in real life.

So, what are your thoughts? Are you a fan of the Cycle? What do you think of the cover?
