Meet Christopher Paolini

The Lincoln Road Theatre. September 26th, 2008. 7:00 p.m.  Books and Books Coral GablesMeet the #1 bestselling author of Eragon and Eldest Christopher Paolini as he presents the newest book in The Inheritance Cycle at the The Lincoln Road Theatre on September 26th, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire’s warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep. First is Eragon’s oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran’s beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix’s clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength – as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices – choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king? With a first printing of 2.5 million copies, Brisingr is slated to be an international sensation in the footsteps of Eragon and Eldest. Having begun his writing career at 15, Paolini, now 25, points to his abiding love of fantasy and science fiction as his inspiration for The Inheritance Cycle. Liz Rosenberg, in the New York Times Book Review, called Eragon, “An authentic work of great talent…I found myself dreaming about it at night, and reaching for it as soon as I woke." Paolini promises that Brisingr will be more of the same.
