This has been bugging me for some time. Would Galbatorix still want to enslave Eragon if his dragon had been male?
What do you think? Why is the world and the environment of the book so important for it? What are the main motives of the book? Why would you recommend to read this book, especially for children? Is there any ethical message?
Anybody think they know what that^ means? And where is the discussion for the sci-fi novel going, here or elsewhere?
Hear me out... we never learn about galbatorix's parents. How crazy would it be I'd Angela was his mom?? We know she's old, but we dont know how old. She could have had several children over the centuries. She's clearly in hiding, but why? Maybe because she's hiding from her son. She was asked if she wanted to join eragon in uru'baen and she said no, it could've been because no matter how evil he is, she didn't want to have a hand in her own son's death.
Does anyone have a map that has the new land where eragon went to after he left alagaesia?
In the last book ingeritance,when eragon left alagaesia, angela had already predidcted that in the first book and said he would never return, is it true he never returns to alagaesia and why?
Did anyone else catch a connection between Jeod's butler and the man who feeds Nasuada during her imprisonment? I'm almost certain they're the same person, but I can't seem to find mention of a connection anywhere.
How many of you recognised the name "Vermund"? I think that the similarity of the name in common means that Vermund (the dwarf) has not been defeated, and there is more trouble to come from him.
I’ve finished the first 1/3rd of the book, but I’m feeling kinda ambivalent. On one hand I love that this is basically picking up right where Inheritance left off, but I’m sad that we didn’t get to see the hunt for the new dragon home, we didn’t get to see much exploration of the East (although maybe there’s more later). Alternatively, it would’ve been really cool if we started 100 years in the future, when everything is mostly done & there’s dragons everywhere, but starting during the construction part is fairly monotonous.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy to see Eragon after 7ish years since Inheritance came out, but idk, my excitement is tempered by some disappointment, like for example, how _short_ the book is. It’s only 1/3rd the size of the first novel, Eragon. The fight with the fork also didn’t really engage me, since the stupefying concept of fighting with a fork kinda interrupts my suspension of disbelief.
I’m just hoping that the last two thirds of the book are more riveting. What do you think?
The book was really good and felt like I was reading eragon again. I just want to know either if you have or haven't read the book if you would like to see another dragon riders story! I would love for paolini to see this even though he most likely won't (ps if you are paolini. Please do it for this kid trapped in school doing homework with a lot of imagination dieing) another thought.. what if the new rider was murtaghs apprentice owo
I believe that Angela and a few other beings in alegaesia(e.g. Sílvari the enchantress, Tenga, "Guntera", etc.) are beings similar to the valar and Maiar in tolkien's works, which include Gandalf, sauron, melkor, Tom bombadil, among others, which are spirits that entered the world at creation. Maiar have a humanlike form, valar do not.
Been a bit since I read the books! However I love them! Curious how the new book is? Does it follow the last book well??
So I was thinking, if that is helgrind on the front of "the fork, the witch, and the worm", then that dragon must be the size of belgabad. (If you don't know who he is, he's a gigantic Dragon skeleton on vroengard). The proportions are about right. And just think of how galbatorix "died". A flash of light, an explosion, sound familiar? I think he transported himself and Shruikan's eldunari to vroengard. Galbatorix probably would have made him disgorge his eldunarí immediately, and could you imagine how great a 2 inch eldunarí could be? So what if all the energy involved melted Shruikan's eldunarí all over Galbatorix's gloves(cut from the wings of belgabad himself) but the eldunarí kept Shruikan's consciousness in it? Then, at vroengard, the shock wave from the explosion somehow grabbed all the loose energy(which there was a lot of), brought it to galbatorix, and all the energy took the bones of belgabad and made it a new body, Galbatorix. He did have the gloves cut from his wings with Dragon soul all over them. And, as glaedr said, matter is only frozen energy. Then he flies to northern alegaesia, to kill murtagh and thorn.

So while rereading Eragon I realized that Paolini described the Isidar Mithrim as being a red Star Sapphire shaped as a rose... but sapphires cannot be red, it is literally the only color a sapphire cannot be, as Sapphire is a mineral of corundum, and red corundum is a ruby.
Does this bother anyone else?
Some pages are too focused on one event such as Agaeti-Blodhren or in the lethrblakas case just talking about the one pair of lethrblaka,
So when writing or editing a page can everyone make it about the subject in general.
I found an interesting fact on Paolini.net. Aparantly the reason why Galbatorix looked to be 40 and Brom looked so old is that Galbatorix's twisted bond with Shruikan made him age faster than a typical human Dragon Rider but slower than an unaltered human. Brom looked old because he lost his dragon.
I just thought of another way to beat Galbatorix aside from showing him the wrongness of his actions. What if one could strip him of his ability to use magic?
