Shruikans heart of hearts?

I was wondering about what is possible in the 5th book and I thought "is it possible shruikans heart of hearts is still around?"
I think it may be but it could have also been destroyed in the explosion at the end of inheritance. and I also doubt galbatorix would entrust something of such power to any of his servants (unless there are some we don't know about yet.) please add your opinion in the comment section, maybe this will be part of a future book?

I think it is highly likely that his Eldunarí is still around, otherwise how could Galbatorix have enslaved him? If so however, I’m not sure it would be enough for a fifth book, since his Eldunarí was likely recovered along with the rest to be rehabilitated by the elves. He likely has a long, quiet path ahead of him to escape his madness.

That said, I would be interested in seeing a “prequel” book from his perspective; seeing how the Fall of the Riders happened in real time.

this was asked in a Q&A and posted on https://www.paolini.net/category/christopher-paolini/qas/

the exact question was:
Why didn’t Galbatorix have Shruikan’s Eldunarí?
answered with:
Maybe he did. I didn’t say one way or another, now did I?

If Galbatorix had shruikans heart of hearts, he probably would have bragged about it or be noticeably stronger.

Shruikan was a young dragon, relatively speaking, only 100 years old or so. Compared with all the other Eldunarí he had with him of much greater strength, I doubt there’d be a noticeable difference even if he did have it with him.

There wouldn't be much reason for Galbatorix to not force Shruikan to remove his eldunari except, as Ursuul said, because Shruikan wasn't all the old. However, because Galbatorix (I think) magically caused Shruikan to grow faster and larger, would not his eldunari also be massive as Shruikan was himself?

On the other hand, there was also not reason for Galbatorix to have Shruikan's elduarni seeing that Shruikan was with or close to Galbatorix most of the time. Because of that, Galbatorix could still draw upon his energy (just as Eragon does with Saphira and other creatures).

Does Galbatorix have Belgabad's eldunari? That would have been immense and extremely powerful.

If he made an Eldunarí, I think it would be one that the Riders would want to preserve in the Vault of Souls. Yet it is not there, & Valdr is the largest.
