Join Dragon Rider--and fan favorite--Murtagh and his dragon as they confront a perilous new enemy!

"Christopher Paolini is a true rarity." --The Washington Post

The world is no longer safe for the Dragon Rider Murtagh and his dragon, Thorn. An evil king has been toppled, and they are left to face the consequences of the reluctant role they played in his reign of terror . Now they are hated and alone, exiled to the outskirts of society.

Throughout the land, hushed voices whisper of brittle ground and a faint scent of brimstone in the air--and Murtagh senses that something wicked lurks in the shadows of Alagaësia. So begins an epic journey into lands both familiar and untraveled, where Murtagh and Thorn must use every weapon in their arsenal, from brains to brawn, to find and outwit a mysterious witch. A witch who is much more than she seems.

In this gripping novel starring one of the most popular characters from Christopher Paolini's blockbuster Inheritance Cycle, a Dragon Rider must discover what he stands for in a world that has abandoned him. Murtagh is the perfect book to enter the World of Eragon for the first time . . . or to joyfully return.

Christopher Paolini is an internationally acclaimed author, best known for composing the high-fantasy Inheritance Cycle consisting of four books, namely Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance. Born on November 17, 1983, in Los Angeles, California, Paolini's inherent love for literature was nurtured and cultivated from a young age in the heart of Montana's Paradise Valley, where he spent his formative years being homeschooled. At merely fifteen years of age, his passion for mythical sagas, resplendent with dragons and knights, ignited his storytelling prowess and led him to pen down the first draft of his widely renowned debut novel "Eragon". The product of his vivid imagination, Eragon, was initially self-published by his family, and its success caught the attention of Alfred A. Knopf Publishing, leading to its re-publication on a larger scale. The book not only claimed the honor of being a New York Times bestseller, but also evolved into a major motion picture, solidifying Paolini's place in the literary realm and establishing him as an influential contemporary fantasy author. Over the course of his thriving career, Paolini has put forth a myriad of awe-inspiring works, each testament to his unbridled creativity and dedication to high-fantasy. With a unique storytelling approach, he skilfully brings alive the intertwining worlds of magic, mystery, and adventure, captivating readers across the globe. His latest novel, "To Sleep in a Sea of Stars", ably demonstrates his proficient handling of science fiction, taking his writing one step further. As an author, Paolini continues to inspire and contribute significantly to the realm of imaginative literature.
