Murtagh, the fifth book in Christopher Paolini’s best-selling Eragon series–also known as The Inheritance Cycle–dropped earlier this month, and fans who haven’t picked up the New York Times Bestselling fantasy novel can grab a hardcover copy for just $22.48 (normally $30) at Amazon.
The Inheritance Cycle is a young adult high-fantasy series set in a world filled with dragon-riding heroes, evil kings, and powerful magic. Murtagh is set one year after the events of the first four Inheritance Cycle books and follows fan-favorite character Murtagh and his dragon companion Thorn. The pair have been exiled following the events of the previous novels but soon find themselves on a quest to stop a new evil that threatens the world of Alagaësia.
While Murtagh: The World of Eragon is a direct sequel to the original novels, the book’s description says it’s “the perfect book to enter the World of Eragon for the first time.” However, if you want to catch up on the full series, you can grab The Inheritance Cycle 4-Book Trade Paperback Set–which includes Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance–for just $33.77 at Amazon (was $64). You can also pick up the new illustrated edition of the first book, Eragon, for just $31.49 (down from $46).
For fans who grew up reading The Inheritance Cycle but want something aimed at older readers, the first two books in Christopher Paolini’s sci-fi anthology series Fractalverse are also on sale at Amazon. You can grab hardcover editions of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars for $19 (was $30) and Fractal Noise for $14.49 (was $29).
