Set in Paolini’s well-known world of Alagaësia, which has captivated over 35 million readers worldwide, THE FORK, THE WITCH, AND THE WORM includes three all-new, original stories, interspersed with scenes from Eragon’s own unfolding adventure. The book includes four pieces of original art by Paolini and memoir pages from Angela the herbalist, penned by Angela Paolini, the inspiration for the character, herself.
The first story begins a year after Eragon has departed Alagaësia to train a new generation of Dragon Riders. Now he is struggling with an endless sea of tasks; constructing a vast dragonhold, wrangling with suppliers, guarding dragon eggs, and dealing with belligerent Urgals and haughty elves. A vision from the Eldunarí, unexpected visitors, and an exciting Urgal legend offer a much-needed distraction and a new perspective.
