debe estar re peoola el libro ajjaja
(the book will be great!)
Ok if ur gonna post some theories, make sure it does NOT interfere with anything said in the books or by Paolini himself. Such comments are making it difficult to find possible theories.
they need to remake the movie and do it right this time
Amen to that.
Give me all the money they spent on avatar, and i would make the best movie EVER! The problem with Eragon was..well..um, everything.
what they really needed was a better eragon, and another voice for saphira. When i watch it nowadays, i get embarrased by that stupid voice.
i think galby will capture eragon and saphira and his black dragon will rape saphira and she’ll love it
dude you have a pretty sick mind but if you like that kind of stuff I guess
I dont think roran, orrin, nasuada, or katrina, or orik could the rider and that would make them immortal. If roran or katrina became a rider then the other would grow old without the other which is why eragon doesnt really want to marry a human. Orrin, nasuada, and orik couldnt be it just for the fact that they all have positions of power and if they were to become immortal then that would put all of them in the same position as galby which is why nasuada and orrin said eragon wouldnt be a good replacement as king
is it possible for one of the elf children to become a rider?
Yes it is. But I don’t think one will. I think it will be someone who no one ever expected. Maybe an Urgal because CP has had too much time with this, thinking of different ideas, then not using them. I also think Arya will leave with Eragon even if she isn’t a dragon rider.
Arya+Eragon=<3 ? I think so its a done deal love the series love evreything i cant imagine writing a book let a alone a whole series good for CP!! Pumped for the new book. Hoping to get some action from Arya and Eragon and hope she gets to be the new dragon rider! yeahh buddy!
Nobody has mentioned orrin and Nasuda and will they get together because in book 2 she says she might marry him but why wnt he be king of aglasia
Because Eragon and Saphira agree in Brisingr (I can’t remember when) that Orrin, if his name comes up in the process choosing a new ruler for Alegaesia, should not succeed Galbatorix. Also, Nasuada said that she’d entertained the idea of marrying Orrin for the sake of convenience, but that the war does not allow for such girlish desires. I don’t think that Orrin will be the next ruler of Alegaesia and I don’t think that he and Nasuada will get married.
you guys are all really dumb. cant you see that it will be Katrina? think about it. someone from all 3 books, someone you wont expect. thats what paolini tries to go for. things you don’t expect. just like gleader and his rider (cant spell it right) died out of nowhere. well, actually you kindof expected it, but still. and also, why not katrina? it hinted that eragon will have to train the next rider, and he would have to train her. just a thought. and i think those girls might end up randomly showing up and killing murtagh or something…
(the girls eragon blessed in Brisingr)
That’s a possibility… I guess I’d never considered that before. But where is it hinted that Eragon will need to train the next rider? I know that when when he and Saphira revisit Ellesmera, Oromis and Glaedr decide to accompany them Eragon asks who will train the next dragon rider, to which Oromis replies, “the responsibility will fall to you and Saphira to train the next rider.” This is only true assuming that Oromis and Glaedr know the future. I don’t know… I still think it’ll be Arya. Also, if Eragon has to train the knew rider at the same time as trying to assist the Varden’s burrowing into the empire, the new rider will be receiving an extremely limited education. Eragon will, to a certain degree, be neglecting his responsibilities to the Varden by spending his days training with his new apprentice. For the sake of convenience (which, admittedly, is not what Paolini has always gone for) I’m thinking that he makes the next rider Arya.
Of course it’s male. Remember in Eldest, Murtagh stated that the rest of the eggs were male and Saphira would be the mother of the dragon race? Look back people.
knjige su zakon
OJ the next dragon is for sure male. the reason they aint killing eragon on the 2nd book is exactly coz of that. saphira’s the last female dragon
After several time waiting, it’s finally coming! I can’t believe it!
AWESOME!!!!! I’ve been waiting for years!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Almost forgot about that one. haha, thanks!
Arya will be the next rider – at the end of Brisingr she becomes a ‘Shadeslayer’, like Eragon, They are both immortal, so why not both riders? Also, Eragon + Arya and Saphira + Arya’s dragon (probably male if it is the one on the cover)
Who can also, despite her dragon’s age handicap, be of use to the Varden
I think we’re asking the wrong questions here. Something that didn’t occur to me until just now is that no matter who the last dragon egg hatches for, greenie will still have to grow up into a decently sized dragon before he is of any use to the Varden. Unless it is somebody who is already extensively practiced in the ways of magic and weaponry, both the rider and dragon will have pretty minimal roles to play in the war. Unless, of course, the elves resort to the perverted practice of accelerating greenie’s growth – as Galbatorix did with Thorn – so as to make him a formidable enough opponent to confront his enemies. For these reasons, I would be very fucking surprised if the new rider turned out to be anybody other than Arya, who is already proficient in the ways of magic (green) and weaponry.
if you remember in book 3 there was a couple of girls passing by the camp and solembum spoke to them but they were in a hurry to leave to get away from something and also when eragon was at the dragons nest he stumbles on a green dragon eggs shell that probably isn’t relevant but it maybe. theres a good chance that greenie hatched to one of the girls in that group and they will be brought back in the next book but im routing for arya thats just me
I know! haha, I’m so curious to find out what Paolini has in store for those two women! However, I don’t know how I feel about the idea of one of them being destined to be the next rider. I realize the significance of Angela reading their fortunes with the Dragon knucklebones, and of Solembum speaking to them, but they’ve done this for others in the past. This only happens when the somebody that Solembum talks to has “an interesting future/past” or when they “will have a large role to play in shaping Alegaesia”. In light of the events in Brisingr, they will undoubtedly have a role to play, but I don’t know… That’s just not the impression I got from them. This is a TOTAL shot in the dark, but maybe they’re the ones who accompany Eragon to Uru-Baen on a mission to extract the last dragon egg from Galbatorix’s possession. I honestly hope that neither of them will be the next rider. haha, you’re right, I’m rooting for Arya, or just an Elf rider in general. This is also assuming that the Varden or the Elves are successful in stealing the egg at all! Paolini might’ve decided to make a cruel twist to the story in which the last egg hatches for another one of Galbatroix’s evil minions… That would suck, but Paolini’s been known to pull that kind of shit.
Hey, you never know. What if someone stole the egg earlier, and he put in all that crap about it not hatching yet? Maybe the egg is already hatched and had some time to grow. That would throw a whole new curve ball at all of us. But I don’t know if that would happen. I kind of wonder if he did make the egg hatch for an evil person. That would mean 3 vs. 1. I mean giant army with 3 dragon riders, vs. small army with 1 dragon rider and a ton of elves. And maybe (but I’m hoping this one doesn’t happen) the egg doesn’t hatch at all. Maybe the cover just is to throw you off and the egg doesn’t hatch for a while, and then, couple years later, he starts a new series, with the egg hatching, and then someone (dragon rider) from somewhere else, cause he never said there weren’t other dragons other places (at least I don’t think) came and laid more eggs. I mean CP could go a lot of different directions with how he ended the last book…
Very true, very true. I feel like we can speculate on the potential outcomes all want, but in the end, it’s the same as a philosophical debate concerning the existence of God. We won’t know anything for sure (apart from the list of confirmed facts) until it comes out… GAHH! I can’t wait until November!
I think that what you said about there being a ratio of 3 vs. 1 is much more likely than the possibility that the egg has already hatched. But I think that Greenie will definitely make some sort of appearance in Inheritance, even if it’s just in a significant piece of history behind a major discovery that Eragon makes. Again, just speculating. hahaha
maybe the girls are out to steal the green dragon egg
maby the child eragon blessed in book 1
OMG it’s obvious the next rider is gonna be Elva –
The next rider can’t be Elva, she’s too evil. I’m betting it’s someone who comes out of left field. Or a dwarf.
cant be a dwarf numskull!
Oh sorry, didn’t realize you were C.P. and in charge of all creative and wishful thinking related to the series.
My bad bro.
you dont have to be CP to know that a dwarf cannot be the next rider, BECAUSE! their not part of the rider pact. They did not want to be part of the pact, even though they were invited to join it!
things can change
i agree i would laugh if he just completely surprises us and re-writes the rider spell
She would be a terrible dragon rider.
OMG they are gold who’s scales were gold…………… Glaedr……….. what did Oromis give to Eragon before he left………… Glaedr’s heart * hint hint *
I don’t understand what ur trying to say here….
None of you guys have thought that maybe the next rider will be the unknown lady that Eragon meets and blesses before he goes on another mission. Because angela said she only tells the future of important people. either that or its gonna be arya
Maybe because Paolini said that the rider would be someone from the first book retard
With that logic wouldn’t the parent or relative, of the green Dragons’ Rider, have to be a rider so the rider can receive his/her ‘inheritance.’ Roran has no direct relation to a rider besides Eragon.
ive always wanted roran to be! i cant wait!
that would be wierd tho… cause eragon would be like, roran… our dragons are fucking
but how do we know that roran dad was not a rider there was not much writen about him and he could have been living on the farm to buy his time till the day he would be with his dragon again and then roran would have a line to the dragons
Why the eyes are not green, but gold? weird…..
the twist is that though some people expected nar garvzhog to be the rider,but arya will be….and the next twist is that they said that saphira is only female egg but the new dragon is also female..and galbatorix wants to capture them both to create a whole new era of riders..heard it here first
Nar Garvzhog couldn’t be the rider because the urgals were never involved with the spell that intertwined the humans, elves, and dragons, just as their can never be a dwarven rider
Wrong good sir, galbatorix clearly stated that saphira was the last female egg in existence, so greenie is male(also stated by mr.paolini himself) keep tryin, im just always gonna pown you all at waht you do, im the expert!
yeh every1 knows its arya she is the most likely considering her green magic and not many others with green magic.and roran is just annoying if you asked me….he would die within the week if he became a rider
the color of the magic is obtained after the hatching of the egg! how do you guys not know these things!?
I bet Arya is going to be the next dragon rider its pretty obvious even in the book and movie her magic is green and she is better suited for it than roran who does not want to be one.
And the nasuada probaly going to be king and maughtah is going to die a horrible death
FAIL!!! Its murtagh dumbass.
nasuada will be queen*
And no, the colour of the Rider’s magic is inherited from the dragon after hatching…
I doubt Roran will be king of Alagaesia. I think that Nasuada has a better chance. And Roran doesn’t have a very high likelihood of being the next Rider, as Katrina said when she dressed him for battle. And unless Chris wants to have Katrina be all “OMG”-y, and take back her words (which could be probable, as he has done so before) Roran won’t be a Rider. Besides, he doesn’t want to be a Rider anyways.
when did he state that he didnt want to be?
Nar Garvzhog is the next rider; you heard it here first!
it looks like a female doesn’t he??
if u had read the books u would know its a male as saphira is the only female dragon out of all the dragons eggs left
Everyone you got to remember that after Eragon Shruikan does not have a rider so Arya and Orik could both be riders or Roran and Arya and then Orik and Roran so either way roran or orik will be a dragon rider or they find another rider for shuruakn
It can’t be Orik, he’s a dwarf. When the elves created the spell it was just for them, then they added humans. Dwarves aren’t part of the spell so Orik can’t be the next rider.
Orik couldn’t be a rider as he is a dwarf, and they weren’t involved in the spell that intertwined humans, elves, and dragons together resulting in the riders, and in order for anyone to be Shruikan’s rider rather than just having him consent to bear them around they would have to recreate Galbatorix’s bond with Shruikan as he is already hatched and therefore cannot bind himself to a rider of his choosing
Shruikan hatched for his rider then Galbatorix killed him, then used magic to put shruikan under is control… have you read the books?
It is finally nice to see a release date, but do we really have to wait until November 8th?
i feel you!
How strange that the scales of this dragon are ruffled, like for glaedr, his spikes arent sharp…
the face however is very nice
I am fairly sure that the dragon rider is going to be Arya. She just is perfect for the role and that would be the ideal thing to do at this point. However, in regard to the Shruikan, we know that (first of all) the final dragon egg is a boy, and probably destined to be Saphira’s mate (second) Shruikan may die, I think he will. Maybe in the end he will give his Eldunari to Eragon and company. I also suspect that Murtagh will either go good or die. Roran, unless a new character is introduced, seems most likely to be the new ruler of Alagaesia.
Also the dragon is the same color as the riders magic and Arya’s magic is green. Also the rider needs to start out strong to be able to help againts the empire. Also in Eragons dream he saw him self and another rider standing together and getting ready to go on a boat that was leaving with the elves. Further more riders share emotions with their dragons and Saphira will must likely fall in love with the green dragon making Eragon and Arya feel more attached to each other. And last but not least Arya is awsome so she will automanicly be the next rider.
a new person cant be a rider. the girls eragon blessed cant be the new rider. this is because in an interview chris said that it will be someone that has been in all 3 books and is well known. failure.
OMG i have a theorie maybe he has gold eyes and rumpled scales because Glaedrs elundari fuses with greeni and that is why he looks weird. (and grows faster?)
when galby is killed shrilunken will turn back into his original color but his eyes will be forever changed because of the dark magic that bound him. in the books it never said shrilunken was originaly black…
cant remember the book too well (im just reading them again, but I m still at book 1, just talking to ajihad for the first time), so i dont know, which girl you mean… but i always thought, the prophecy meant arya, as she fits in perfectly…
and for the fourth rider: i always assumed, it would be roran, i already had him in mind after book 2 (and I was quite sure, that the dragons would be blue, red, green, which seems to be true)
oops, this reply was meant for azzmeister, i just hit the wrong button
think back to book three when Eragon finds Angela using the dragon knucklebones on the older woman “bladesinger” and the young girl who was traveling with her, perhaps the girl is the next rider, CP would not have mentiond them if they were not important for the fourth book and the girl was of similar age to Eragon himself.
incase anyone mentions the noble birth quote from book 1 then here is my counter for that also, Angela calls the older of the two “Bladesinger which to me is a title of great significance, perhaps the older woman is of noble blood and the younger girl is her daughter. Anyway thats my opinion on the last rider, please enjoy
WOOOP CANT WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK!!!
Totally didn’t even consider the girl for the next rider. there is a new thought to consider, I still think arya is the best canidate although I don’t think she want to be.
Because cp said that the rider would be someone already seen in the first book
Arya is totally going to be the next Drago Rider! Though Roran sounds like a good choice, he doesn’t really want to become a Dragon Rider, as he expressed in Brisingr. Plus, Arya is a total BAMF.
i think it should be roran to be the Dragon Rider. When i first read the books i thought Arya but then i thought about how roran is such a good fighter.
I am reading the books for the 5th time since Brisnger came out and i have finished the first and second book in 3 days
I have a theory. In one of CP’s interviews he hinted about a significant event happening in the fourth book. It had to do with a question he was asked. The question delt with the possibility of a Dragon Rider becoming a shade. And the only reason I think it will happen is because when CP was asked the question he said that he wouldn’t comment on it, which means that it was a good question and that an event exactly like it or similar to it will happen in the fourth book, and obviously its of great significance to the plot otherwise why would he not want to comment on it.
well it might be that he placed in random no comments to keep us on our toes we dont know if it is significant or not sorry to spoil that for you
I think roran will be the next dragon rider. think about it.
If Roran were to become the new rider then he would have to give up Katrina, which i don’t see going along with.
why is the dragons eyes gold and not green?
this is a different species of dragon, because the other dragons facial structure, while similar, was VERY different…
**BOOM** i has a theory >8D
ok so you know how saphira and thorns scales were smooth and not kinked? Gladers were (and somewhat badly…) so is this dragons, my theory is that the green dragon is accually shrukien after galbitorix’s control has fallen from the dragon, and he reverts back to his natrual color.
and wah-la, ’tis my theory 83
hey stupid, there is another egg and it is green
im well aware of that, but the dragon would already of been hatched and grown for it to look like it does, and it does differ from saphira and thorn.
Or maybe they gave the green dragon Glaedr’s heart to make it grow faster, so that’s why his scales are as ruffled as they are. I mean it would kinda be a waste to a have an extremely strong dragon and a weak baby dargon. I would rather have two strong dragons if I were fighting Galbatorix.
how the fuck does the dragon luks like glaedr…….bullshit u ppl talkin man!
i know right these people are dumbasses
arya is going to be the next dragonrider because she will not have to learn too many things about magic and dragons…she allready nows a lot and she is strong!!!
Eragon is going to give murtagh one last chance to change then kill him, then he is going to kill galbatorix with the help of Arya and the first Eragons dragon who is actually the whole frickin Spine. Roran will become king and finally Eragon and Arya will go to the land of the elves and bone the sack a few times till they get divorced and Arya will take all of Eragons money a beat the jesus out of him.
not unless he signs a prenup =P
Is it just me or does that dragon look ALLOT like Glaedr?????(except he’s green not gold)
Please forgive me, i posted this after i saw the previous comments xD
so cool! can’t wait for it to be released!
The date should have been set for my birthday-
omg dude… my b-day is the same day… WOW
dude stop posting something twice and puting a different name on it.. it makes you look retarded.
the title is not original and this dragon looks the same as glader WTF?
dude it looks nothing like glaedr. are retarted or something. what a dumbass
are you, sry forgot to add tht in
about time lol!!!!!!!!!!
yeah i know right
Random House: Sorry for the inconvenience, but we are now recalling this book for further investigations due the length of which the book is. We will Soon have a split copy of this book which branches off into Book 5.
dude i would flip lol
not evn funny to joke about….
Christopher Paolini- Brilliant Author. The Inheritance Cycle- Brilliant Book series. My favourite series of books. I can not wait for November 8th. Bring on Inheritance.
i feel its arya whu is the next rider as oromis is dead, the last of elf riders is gone. there is already a human rider(to mention half human and elf) in the form of eragon.orik cannot be a rider as hes a dwarf..its high time that a elf rider comes up to take the place of oromis for the epic battle….plus as saphira is the last female dragon, she needs a mate…which i suppose wld be the green dragon….and if arya is the rider…ultimately it may cum dwn to eragon and arya being mates cz eragon is also immortal now as hes half elf…..arya for sure then!!
Well, it COULD be Orik. Elves were the first. Then eventually Humans came to be Riders. Maybe with this New Age, a Dwarf may become a Rider….of course they’d have to overcome their fear of heights. lol
dwarfs CAN’T be riders because they refused to participate in the magic spell the elves done when they create the dragon riders, so , or they change the spell or dwarfs will not be riders
sorry the mistakes i’m argentinoooooooo
And cast/recreate the spell that binds humans, elves, and dragons together, which the current collection of characters does not posses the strength or knowledge to do, unless the elves have the spell written down somewhere which would help alleviate the problem of what words to use
I don’t care what the critics say about the way christopher paolini writes as they say that the books dragon on i tell them to shove their opinions.
christopher paolini is a genius to create such a wonderful read, especially in this age.
there are no books anywhere that are like these, when reading these the amount of information given about it.. its not like your actually reading but more like you are there, inside the story walking/flying across Alageasia in the shoes of whoever is portrayed at the time reading something like this is exhilarating and fun keep up the awsome work Christopher and never let anyone tell you how to write… whens you start listening to critics is when these books stop being you and end up dull and boring, write how you see it and listen to nobody but those who helped with your first book Eragon
if you agree with what ive written here then by all mean like it
as the books drag on* <(correction)
sorry guys my keyboard is screwwy
lol you should have used moved at a gingerly pace, it sounds so much more majestic XD
Yeah I totally agree with what you are saying. You would have to be blind, stupid or naturally born a critic to say that his work isn’t good, great, fantastic, marvelous,wonderful…you see? I could have continued, but I thought it best to stop;) haha I think that everyone who complained about the time it is taking should get a brain. Joking, but I know that even if it takes a century to complete this book, it will be fabulous and so worthwhile that everyone will weep for joy.
what i think is roron will die at the hands of one of galbatorix soders and eragon will be so made he willl stumble opon the vault of souls and he will use them and will ripe out galbatorixs heart out and arya will be the new rider
i think the vault of souls may be in vroengard somewhere… the rock of kuthian
i think the inheritance part is relating to the fact that Roran will inherite his title as king of Alegasia, after Nasuada’s untimely death at the hands of Galbatorix.
i don’t believe nasuada would make an appropriate ruler in any case.. a major battlefield general perhaps definatly a high importance piece… but not a queen or anything like that
Nobody has mentioned orrin and Nasuda and will they get together because in book 2 she says she might marry him but why wnt he be king of aglasia
thats smart, i never thought of that
The new rider is going to be one of the women from page 254 of Brisingr. Angela tells them their fortune and Eragon gives them his blessing. Paolini would not have included this if he wasnt going to bring them back
i doubt it… maybe the younger one but honestly if that happens she may turn out to be a female galbotorix… from whats said about that womans mother i don’t think it would be too good a thing to happen
it cant be one of them because they are not mentioned in either of the previous books.
So close yet so far away!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this book forever!!!!!! I’m so excited!!!!!
YES! FINALLY! YAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!! THIS TOOK SO GODDAMN LONG! BUT I’M SO HAPPYY!!!!
I think Trianna will be the next rider. Mostly becuase of her sudden appearance and then dissaperance with eragon as if they had only just met on the battle of the burning plains. Paolini hinted that sourcery will play a big part in the next book whit obviousley relates to Trianna being a sourcerer and then they would go to find the vault of souls perhaps?
I would think its angela that is the Dragonrider, because when Angela is talking to nasuda, she say ” angela, u can`t be much older than i am” and the dragon looks like its older than Thorn an Saphira, so i would bet on Angela as the Rider. but im not sure since CP said that it woulden be a main character. but Angela isnt a main character soooo who knows…
It can’t be Angela, In almost every instance, CP has said that its going to be a third egg that hatches the new dragon and it’s mentioned by both Jeod and Brom in the books.
hello guys i am a fan of the cycle from greece.I am almost sure that the new rider is arya.oromis was the best!!!
is anyone considering that this could be an older dragon because of the furrowed scales, and dull spikes?
I agree with you, He may be such as in the spine, I saw people saying that it is the spine of and elder dragon, so Can’t Wait till November 8 to figure out!!
Do we know if its a boy or girl. It looks like a girl to me, just sayin’.
It’s a male.
the last dragon is male
it says people that werent centralized… so that rules out the elf child name vanir or whatever it was… as for the only 2 elves that are younger then he…. i doubt it. someone thats been mentioned before but shied away from the story line alot…. would e one hell of a nasty twist if it ended up being sloan but lets not think about that….perhaps Elva… its a possibility.. and so far the most obvious choice as she’s already dragon marked and magical beyond anything anyone else is.. but im keep thinking before i answer. Orik would be a good choice… the dragon chooses the rider but he’s a main character so thats him out. Nolfavrell is another possibility, as is Albriech, perhaps even that messenger boy jarsha… Galina is perhaps the least mentioned person ever in these books the daughter of clovis, harwin the guy that eragon returns the arrow to after rejoining the varden, mandel, and the only one left that i can think of is trianna…. if its none of those then i havn’t got a clue
I still don’t think it’s any of those characters. Again people! Orik is a F*****G dwarf!! He can’t be a rider. Only humans and elves can be riders. I don’t its any of the villagers from Carvahall because again, it would be way to cliched if two people from a “simple, farming community” in the heart of the Spine both became riders. I think it probably would be a character who has been very scarcely mentioned or not at all. That’s just my opinion but, I really spend a lot of time reading and I know when something is or isn’t going to happen.
well in that case what about galina? the daughter of clovis.. she’s mention once throughout the entire series so far
*Jawdrop* I NEED!!!
I think the new rider will definitely not be Arya, Roran, or any of the other main characters, and Rhynn, Orik is a dwarf he wouldn’t be eligible to be a rider anyway. But back to the rider, it would be too cliched if Arya or Roran were the rider. I mean, He’s already got a “brother” who’s a rider and if Roran was it, that would be a bit too much. Also, I could see how some of you would think Arya would be the rider, but I seriously doubt it. She’s already played a huge roll in these books and if she were to become the rider, it would open no windows for more characters.
in CP’s first few drafts of the time cycle, or whatever, he imagined three brothers (eragon, murtagh, roran) sitting at the gates of the black citadel of uru`baen on there three dragons. Things may have changed and prolly would have…however, i wouldnt bet on it NOT being roran…but the fact that he would outlive katrina doesnt make sense
I believe that the new Rider will be an elf. But not Arya, because in a previous interview Paolini said “the new Rider will be someone that I mentioned before in my books, but is not a central character.” That automatically rules out Roran, Arya, Nasuada, and also Orik.
My theory is that the new Rider will be one of the two Elven children that Paolini mentioned three times in his past books.
see, im agreeing with you… but the elf children i dont think so- maybe cuz now theres three human riders and no elven—but i want vanir. hes loyal to the elven race,, and eragon-plus he knows magic and swrodskill….it wouldnt take long for him to learn: hed be a good rider
Is the eye color really that much of an issue? I personally like it, and technically it is still green because the eye slits are like green…nice color blends
How come Greenie’s eyes are yellow, not green? All the other dragons’ eyes match their scales…?
Maybe it’s an important part of the book. Or Maybe the person who painted it wanted to do something different. Calm down; be grateful that the book even has a cover.
It’s Awesome!! Exceeds my expectations(by far). I think the scales look like Glaedrs’ ’cause he might be Glaedrs’ kid. Just a theory. Next riders’ deffinitely Arya. Too much green to not be her, what with her eyes and dress. The poor thing deserves Greeni after all she’s been through.
plus eragon would be able to have a relationship with arya cuz of it…
to clarify: saphira said whoever eragon fell in love with-saphira would also become attached to… so if arya has a dragon, and eragon and arya hooked up- saphira would love arya: and therefore greeni. and vice versa
Men its so cool and beats all the theories of the fans like the 4th book’s title is going to be eldunari… wahahahaha
I have to wait till November to read this!???? Ugh! Nonetheless it comes out a day after my bday!
LOVE IT!!! I think the rider’s going to be Arya: The scales ale green and look like leaves in a wind, AKA Ellesmera, Arya loves green and her eyes are green, and the dragons features are really … Elvish(compared to the others). Also, I think the scales look like Glaedr’s cause he’s his son.
I think that it might be hidden in the “Vault of Souls”, the place that the werecat Solembum told Eragon about in the first book during his premonition. SPOILER ALERT!!! I think that Eragon will find a secret cache of eldunari souls like the one Glaedr gave to Eragon in the Vault of Souls and then he will be as powerful as Murtagh, maybe even Galbatorix. Just my opinion, but I’m pretty sure that’s what will happen.
I think the reason he looks that way is that he is young ( see spikes on his head .. they are more like nubs) also I don’t think the new rider will be Roran also the vision eragon has with two people leaving and one grieving I think the grieving one is Murtaugh- I believe Thorn is killed in battle and Murtaugh lives. He is not invited to leave with them as he is the enemy and polluted by Galbatorix , they couldn’t risk it . Just my thoughts Lol can’t wait for the book Ahhhhhhh have already been waiting sooo long!!!!!!
glaedr didnt have long spikes: he was centuries old…its like bulls with horns… no age evolution-just heredity
Well when you think about it, ruffled scales such as that would make an impressive defense against all that would dare to pet you. Seriously though, a sword is probably more likely to be deflected by scales that are pointing in every which direction than by flat scales.
its going to be roran’s that way it’ll be a fight between the “brothers”
Nice reasoning there.
dont you know it ; ]
i love it!!! it’s awesome
its soo cooooool
Noooooo! My computer won’t frickin’ show it!
mine too i sooooo want to SEE IT AGGGUUGGG
i know, so does mine: just google it
He looks really young. Haha maybe thats why his scales are like that. Haha but its cute
I hope he’s absolutely vicious:)
I love it! the scales are a bit weird but overall its great.
that is a very interesting theory. about roran i mean. why do you think he would be mourning? out of curiosity…
the previous comment was a mistake and was meant for Erahnday… sorry
In the first book Eragon has a dream with withtwo people leaving and one person mourning. And there were two dragons circling above the two people. Those two people i think will be Eragon and Arya and the person mourning would be Roran.
My bet is that its Eragon and Arya are on the boat, and Murtagh will be the one mourning because 1) Eragon, Arya and their dragons are leaving and 2) Thorn is dead. The only problem I see with this is that I don’t think Murtagh would survive Thorn’s death, weather he goes mad or kills himself, he would have to have a very good reason to live. Roran could be the mourner, but I think he’d be too stoic to cry out… still, could be him, he’s my second choice.
Thanks for reminding me about that part, I’d forgotten.
i like that theory, but im thinking murtagh will live, and his reason could be nasuada, it is mentioned somewhere about her liking him
Murtagh and Nasuada’s relationship, or lack-there-of, is going to be addressed in the fourth book, is if that mourner /is/ Murtagh, it is very likely that he found reason to live because of Nasuada.
As for if Thorn dies, and the connection killing Murtagh; that’s not necessarily true. Since their bond was forced beyond all they could imagine due to dark magic they might not be as connected as they should be considering Thorn is still supposed to be a toddler/child dragon.
thats definitly aryas
Aawww fluffy dragon! Srsly tho cannot wait for this book! Its like waiting for duke nukem forever to be released!
what an ugly dragon
Gosh that’s so mean! I personally think he looks cute.
lol seriously its ugly, saphira is so much better looking
Look like Glaedr and Saphira were doing other things then we though….
You dummy. This isn’t Saphira and Glaedr’s dragon offspring. This is the last of the 3 eggs Galbatorix had.
Of course I knew that, it was a joke.
maybe the portrait was after Greenie went through a drastic ordeal, that’s why his scales are like that…
anywho, i love the painting.
i liked thorn’s picture the best but this is still awesome. and i can’t wait for it to come out.
I think that his/her (most likely his cuz of saphira) scales are like that because he is a newborn so he/she has just hatched and thats why the scales are bent(plus they may be soft and will grow hard later)
Just a thought, what if the green dragon doesn’t hatch til the end of the book? And as to who the rider would be, since it is inheritance I’m thinking Eragon’s son with Arya.
I LOVE IT!
Scales are similar to Gleadr, Maybe this dragon is also much older than Saphira and Thorn (SP?)
If you look at book 3 cover and this cover you will see that both dragons have a “streamer” type of scales on their neck. So Since Gleadr was matched with an elven companion then this one must also be matched with an Elf! Could be Arya, Queen, possibly the one of the two children elves from book 3.
Finally! It’s here! I cannot possible wait for book 4 of the inheritance cycle!
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but what up with the scales? they look ruffled…
Dude this sucks, can’t see it. I know its on random houses website but it’s kinda small on there.
His scales look a bit… flaccid. What a wonderful word, flaccid, don’t you think?
ahaha i thought so. wonderfully describes solembums rat, doesnt it?
You got it
im going to look thatup online rightnow, i just decided
Who are you, Angela?
why are its spikes so tiny?
You should NVR use internet explorer for anything else than downloading firefox
I have read all the books it is a boy and it has just hatched…….thats how you spell hatched right?
That’s how you spell it
yes dumbass it is a male and just hatched it also will hatch for roran seing asmurtagh is a relative or eragon, eragon got a dragon, murtagh got a dragon, so inheritence, it just sems right that it would be roan, also i predicted it would be green
haha makes sense, but since you’re so confindent that it will hatch for Roran, I’m gonna laugh really hard if it hatches for Arya. You’re probably right, but it sure would be funny…
With that logic wouldn’t the parent or relative, of the green Dragons Rider, have to be a rider so the rider can receive his/her ‘inheritance.’ Roran has no direct relation to a rider besides Eragon.
Does Arya have connections to a dragon rider?
how is it possible for roran to learn everything about becoming a dragon rider and then be useful in the span of the time eragon has to defeat galbatorix?
the new dragon rider will already be a magic user, probably an elf, seeing as vast knowledge of the ancient knowledge and fast skills need to be there for the new dragon rider to be helpful
before you start calling ppl dumbass’s i suggest that you look the evidence that you just said over again… eragon and murtagh are direct relatives of previous riders. neither of rorans parents were ever riders.
Yippee its finally here!!!!!!!
I’ve been looking at all the book covers in multiple tabs, “Greeni” (wouldn’t that suck if that was his name” just says Virility to me, Saphira looks very deep and thoughtful, I’m sure CP and Palencar wanted her to look just as important as she really is. Glaedr seems noble, militant, full of knowledge and history. And Thorn….. Well, Thorn Is PISSED
anyone know when movie 2 comes out?????
hopefully never? Unless they redo the first one…
I agree the first movie was terrible.
no one liked the first movie. we all agree it was shameful and rather depressing
They couldn’t possibly make another they messed up the first story line so much they couldn’t possibly make the two connect
hopefully not until the 1st one is remade by a director/screenwriter who has actually read eragon
YES. the first movie completley jacked up the book.The Ra’Zac died in the first hour for God’s sake!
Doesnt he look like hes smiling?
He looks so friendly and playful, with a glimt in his eye:)
Comparing this cover to the other ones, I see a certain resemblance. But also many differences. Yes, different thorn positioning, different size and sharpness. Sapphira and Thorns thorns seem to be longer and sharper. Also, some say that his scales are bent and shriveled because of age. Others say they are like that because hes young. But, in my opinion, Greenie seems to be a young male dragon because his eyes show youth and innocence. The fact that his eyes do not match his scale colour does not bother me. I like it. Overall, i think Palencar seems to be getting better and better at this. Good job!
I just noticed that his eyes do not match his scale colour. Interesting…
I think it is going to be called ‘Emeralda’ because Saphira and Saphire… Just thinking.
Actually, scratch that, that sounds like a girl’s name. Maybe ‘Emraldy’ (the ‘y’ is pronounced like an ‘ie’ sound).
Doesn’t sound very dragonish… I like Viridian(:
amazing gold and green exeeded my expectation
I must say, Palencar is awesome…. exceeded my [big] expectations… Love it
I LOVE IT!!!!
I have three days to read this book. Then Skyrim eats my life.
My thoughts exactly.
He’s obviously a baby dragon, there’s no mention of a green one and there IS an egg, still x_x
Meh, I think I have seen better fan covers to be honest. The positioning is kind of repetitive if you compare it to Eragon.
Has anyone noticed this: Greeni’s eye doesn’t match his scales’ color like Saphira, Thorn, and Glaedr. What’s up with that?
his parent could have been green and gold
To tell the truth, I think this dragon looks really young. It’s more about the look in his eyes then the fact that his scales are all bent up. Don’t you think?
Oh yeah, definitely male.
Oh so cool.
Huh, well, I like the art, and it is pretty well done. Although, the position is disappointing, there was some other stuff he could have done. Quetzalcoatl Greenie, hah.
Lol, I was thinking like a behind shot and him peeking behind at the viewer or something, but then that would look shamefaced almost. But if you cut out Greenie and then you cut out Saphira and put them together, then you get a love heart
You know, I noticed that too, wonder if Palencar was hinting at anything…xD
Maybe, maybe not.
Hey, off-topic here, but does anyone know why IF is down?
no idea, but i did notice that…. i want to read the rest of Dawn, its not cool >.<
I need to update Empire…. *flops*
Um, if anyone hasn’t noticed: His scales are bent and curled and his thorns are dull. He’s old. Just like Glaedr.
I think his horns aren’t fully devolped and that the scales are kinda like our hair. It depends on the genetics.
Actually, if you look, his spikes are rather sharp, although small. They are uniform as well, so that seems to indicate that they are new. It seems to me that he is young.
No, he isn’t old he just hatched it says theres one egg left in Brisinger and no more secret dragons like Gleadr.
not true, it says there are no more riders hiding in the forest
He could be a wild dragon, but by his looks, he ain’t
Y’know Greeni’s got two eyebrow horns and all the others only had one or none. Also, he follows the rule of male dragons having smaller nostrils.
I still think the dragon has a feminine look. Yes we’ve been told that Saphira is the last KNOWN female dragon. This could be a dragon of the old. Call me crazy, but what if she was the mother of all dragons? O.o YEs my imagination is running wild.
He has slit pupils, Saphira has round ones, whist Glaedr, Thorn and now Greeni have slits. Definitely male.
Not to mention his eyes are all one color, whereas Saphira has the whites of her eyes…
Exactly, thanks for pointing that out too
I CAN’T SEE IT. I WAITED YEARS FOR IT AND I CAN’T SEE IT. SO FUCKING ANGRY!!!
same as me, its wierd
I can’t see the image either when I’m using Internet Explorer, but it shows up fine in Firefox. It happens a lot with this site and Mugglenet. I don’t know why. I thought it was just me.
upddate your internet explorer I couldn’t see it either but then I updated mine, and now I am able to see the picture
look at the eyes, on the cover of Eragon the iris doesn’t fill up the entire eye on Saphira like it does on Thorn, Gleadr, and now this new dragon. obviously male
cant be female… last dragon egg already confirmed male
look at greenie then at saphira and thorn and gleader the dragon, in my opinion, is female, the snout/muzzle is similar, thinner that the male dragons, and it has the same ‘bump’ under the eye, and in my opinion, the snout/muzzle is slightly longer than the males
You fail, if you believe that.
simply a beautiful cover <3
The cover is cool, bit the name could have been so much different.
Agreed, so much for a ‘kickass’ title…
Hey, do you have any idea where IF’s gone?
The picture wont load for me :’( any tips?
Try reloading the page, or you can see if it’s on google yet. Or check random house’s website
John Jude Palencar I will eat my hat, to be honest I really thought you couldn’t out do Brisingr’s cover and yes I admit I was wrong.
i just did an irish dancing kick
Egad, my little cousins were just looking at me strange because of my hysterical happy laughter upon seeing this. My only tick is that when it comes out, I’ll be at college. Well, hopefully my future roommate won’t mind the smell of coffee and an all-nighter, because once I start the book, I’m not putting it down until I’m done.
It comes out the day before I go on camp for three days, so no reading…. SO F****** ANNOYING!!!! I could try to finish it in one night though….
i will not put it down either im camping in front of the bookstore
yea lol im going to college next year as well….am carefully planning for a roomate who doesnt mind all my quirks…like reading books about dragons until the crack of dawn
What I don’t understand is how the dragon’s scales are described as beautiful and glowing and more beautiful than any precious stone then why do the covers depict them as tassles?
because its a newborn and those mite not b scales
Why wouldn’t those be scales? What else could they be? O_o
It’s the artist’s interpretation, so there.
So exciting!! about time!! I cant wait for the audio book! I hope this book is twice as long and wont leave loose ends I cant wait another decade for the next book to come out!
Just because there is a bigger version of the green dragon doesn’t mean it’s old. Ever heard of foresight? Either the egg already hatched or it’s a look into what the hatchling will look like in the future.
If this is truly a Dragon of the old, it’s a great revelation you guys have made. It’s got me thinking about a lot of things. But for some reason i have a feeling it might be female. If it is an old dragon. It doesn’t look very masculine like Thorn or Glaedr do. But nevertheless it is great.
for those of you who cant see the picture, this is what it looks like on amazon
Beautiful artwork – this is the nicest looking dragon out of the bunch, in my opinion.
Random place for Inheritance predictions, but here goes:
The green dragon is old. I just don’t see an egg hatching for another rider and playing ANY kind of role in the last book. There isn’t enough story to allow for the new dragon to grow up. Either the green dragon is the last of the wild dragons or it survived the death of its rider and went into hiding.
Eragon will discover his true name (obviously) and it will have something to do with fire. Maybe something like “fire of the revolution”?
The rock of Kuthian will either be the home of a vast amount of elundari (which I have come to doubt) or the hiding place of the green dragon.
Galbatorix will find the name of the ancient language, but he will be defeated anyway. I think Eragon will defeat him, but it also may be that Murtagh will change his true name and slay the dark king.
After Galbatorix is slain, Nasuada/Orrin will banish all magic users from Alagaesia, prompting Eragon to leave with Arya. (Though I think it would be brave of Paolini to kill Arya in this final book)
As for Greenie being old- Eragon (the book) took place over a six month period, in other words the amount of time it took for Saphira to breath fire. If CP wanted, he could find a way to halt the Varden’s march, such as the onset of winter or another emergency. That would give Greeni the time needed to mature.
That’s true, but remember that brisingr was going to be only one book long and CP himself thought it wouldn’t be as long as Eldest because there “wasn’t that much story there.” The reason the book was split and then spread out was to develop the characters at a more realistic pace. If the story line itself is the same, then there wouldn’t be a lot of time for the finding/raising of a third dragon. Of course, it may turn out that you’re completely correct and the Varden stall at dras-leona or something. In that time Galbatorix could certainly artificially boost the physical attributes of the new rider pair past expectations.
I’ve already have it planned. I go in to the bookstore just as it opens. I buy the book. I go home. And i lock my self in my room (has a bathroom and get food in it) and i don’t get out of it till i’ve read it five times. I’ll probally be a vampire by then ,but i don’t care.xD
It won’t let me see the image :’( WAAH I WANT TO SEE IT!!!!!
What do you mean by you can’t see it? Why would you’re computer not let you see it?
i cant see it either!
further up the page somebody posted a link to the book on Amazon, i could see it there
I’M SO GLAD THE COVER IS FINALLY OUT!!! AND IT LOOKS SO AMAZING!!! <3 <3
I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR INHERITANCE TO RELEASE!!!
im dissapointed with the name, its so blan. I wanted it to be something unexpected like aren or something that we havent seen yet. inheritance is just a word ive heard so much visiting this site and waiting for the book. I an curious as to what hes inheriting though
I know, I was skim-reading the article when i first read it, because I was so excited to find out the release date/title, that I thought they didn’t mention the title. It was only when I read it again, slower, that I saw all the mentions of “Inheritance”, which I just skipped over because I assumed they were talking about the cycle, was the actual name of the book.
Let’s analyze this closely.
I could tell Glaedr was old because he
1. Had bent scales.
2. Had dull neck spikes.
3. Had a beard.
This one fulfills the first two of those requirements. It could just be that that’s the way his scales are, but it’s a rather dramatic change from the other three pictures. But then, look at Saphira and Thorn’s neck spikes: long and sharp. This dragon’s closely resemble Glaedr’s. Therefore, my official guess is that this is an old dragon, probably not the one that hatches from the last dragon egg. Then again, I can’t know anything for sure until I read the book.
Just because he looks like Glaedr due to his scales and spikes, it doesn’t mean he’s old. It might just be a certain type of scale like we can either have curly or straight hair; doesn’t make a difference to the person. He doesn’t have a beard! Saphira has that spike under her chin too! Thorn has two on either side of his mouth and Glaedr’s was a beard, it was hairy!!
Sorry about that if you found it rude XD
LOL @ ” it was hairy ” XD
We dont really know where the last dragon is as its not been spcifically metioned in the three books. My guess is that the last dragon egg has already hatched…for Arya. Lets look at the evidence. Firstly Arya’s magic is green. secondally she is always sad and depressed when away from Du Weldunverden which is probably where her dragon is. Also when Eragon was trying to get to saphira on the dragons nesting place, after she had a fight with Glaedr he stepped on the remains of a broken GREEN dragon egg. But i do not know why she has not revealed the prescence of her dragon to Eragon or the Varden. Also she and Saphira get along very well, Saphira first breathed fire while riding Arya and also she has a dragon tatto thing on her back.
CP has said that that egg fragment is just coincidentally the same colour as Greenie, no connection whatsoever to Greenie. Why can’t people get that into their heads?!?!?! But the colour green leans a lot towards Arya, and if she isn’t the last Rider, I will eat my disgustingly dirty shoes. Eka hiet.
(Yes, I’m from Australia so I spell everything with “u”. Just saying that before someone shouts “You can’t spell!!!” I’m a rather good speller truth be told )
Ah, thank you BWD, for your brilliant voice of reason…
Ah, no problem, that has been bugging me for a while now how everyone thinks that that egg fragment is from Greenie’s egg.
This one I actually like because its possible. It also sounds like Paolini to surprise us like that. That would be really cool to, considering the fact that the dragon would be grown, trained and ready to fight. Good theory!
I screamed when I saw this. NOW I CAN’T SIT STILL!!!!!
lol. I was in Geography when I found out about this and everyone looked at me when I went “SQUEAK!!!” with excitement XD
People, the yellow-ish amber color totally works with the green! It is much more eye pleasing than green eyes would have been, so shut your pie holes.
has everyone on this site conformed to just complaining about anything and everything they can find a flaw in? i think the cover is great. and all the covers have similar looking dragons on them. its the same artist. he changes a few things, but mainly its his interpretation of a dragon, and its been consistent throughout the series. this is the best news shurtugal has had in a long time and a majority of the comments are expressing disappointment. depressing guys damn depressing.
OMG IM SOOOOO EXCITED! i actually just jumped up and down and did a cartwheel!, CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DDDDDD
IM SO EXCITED AND I JUST CANT HIDE IT
I was hopeing the book wud be green and named eldunari but I guess this will do. I hope the book is as good as we have all hoped for! But still can’t wait!! But November ? If only it was sooner…watevs SOOO ******* EXCITED!!!
Whoooooooooo!!!! Thank you! Finally! Forget the Artwork (which doesn’t look bad) I am just stoked the last book is on its way! This is gonna be epic!!!
maybe he is glaedrs son
If it was, the mom would probably have to be blue. I wonder if there’s any female blue dragon we know of that offered herself to him… Oh wait!
Saphira 1 !!!!!!
AAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!! You could be right!!!! That’s my new favorite theory so far.
it could be broms saphira
Not quite- remember, it was confirmed by CP that only part of the dragon’s color depended on genetics, and the rest was determined by the dragon’s personality. So if he is Glaedr’s son, the mother didn’t have to be blue.
Although, he does eerily look like both of them… :/
the cover art is good it just doesnt make much sense for a new dragon to have bent up scales like glaedr’s who is really old…
its the artists interpretation of a dragon. you can picture the dragon however you want in your head.
I’m pretty sure they get bent from being in an egg for a hundred years, too.
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! AFTER YEARS OF WAITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LITERALLY JUST WET MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!! finally!!! =D I’m so EXCITED!!!! =D I literally just jumped up and down around in a circle lol =D
oops, I told it to make my user name Corynrocks, not Emilygrab.
Finally! I hope Amazon puts it on Pre-sale. I think the cover is pretty, despite what other people are saying. =p
I find the cover a little disappointing, oh well. Why are his eyes yellow anyway? Shouldn’t they be green?
The Iris is green if you look closely. Though I think they did it that way because if the whole eye was green it would blend in too much.
I saw that, but it’s still too yellow for my liking :/
Personally, I think the cover is a little disappointing, but I don’t really care I’m just so excited that the book is finally coming out!!
I don’t really like the cover art but then again it will prob look better on book… Title is funny because one of CP’s hints was the title would be something eragon inherit haha! But the release date is on my calendar!!! Can’t wait!! Thanks Mike and CP!
I Swear to bejesus that if elva is the rider i will murder paolini…..just kidding but seriously i would be greatly dissappointed, anyways I like the way it looks, but honestly how big of a role can it play if paolini said it would be shorter than brisingr, and its a young dragon?
exactly… ive been preaching this all along. i imagine the book is just as long as brinsingr if not a bit longer. the dragon will have to either be right at the end. or at the beginning and hatch to arya.
I almost feel like its a image of Glaedr that got thrown into photoshop and had a little bit of green added to it. I am a little disappointed in this cover, I expected a little better. Everything about this dragon just looks just like Glaedr to me, the brows, eyes, the nose, scales… just disappointing…
like glaeder plus saphira and it makes it but still looks alright
1) It’s a dragon, it’s supposed to look like, well, A DRAGON
2) It’s a drawing style, it’s supposed to look similar
3) He’s MALE so he has a MALE MUZZLE you twit.
1.) Does Thorn and Glaedr look that similar? NO
2.) Do any of the dragons look that similar to each other in his covers? NO
3.) Technically its a SNOUT not a muzzle
1) Is Glaedr or that Greeni facing the camera like Thorn? No.
2) Is it possible the artist’s dragons have improved or changed over the course of a few years? Yes
3) SAME DIFFERENCE, I RIDE HORSES AND STUDY WOLVES THEREFORE I CALL IT A MUZZLE.
4) It’s very possible Christopher Paolini decided he liked Glaedr’s best, so he told the artist and the artist drew it like that for that very reason.
Google – The snout, or muzzle(Key words ‘or’ and ‘muzzle’), is the protruding portion of an animal’s face, consisting of its nose, mouth, and jaw.
I believe it looks like an elven dragon. It’s scales look like leaves and it’s face is more graceful. -Nod.- I’m sticking with my theory of Arya being the next rider, as it looks perfectly fit to be hers. Even it’s sheer look reminds me of how she can be and of Ellesmera.
I can see it now… He’s saying ‘Why is Saphira staring at me like that…’
thank gods i have a release date!!!!!
It is… disappointing somehow. Even if I recognize the style of the previous cover, this dragon looks odd. Like, malformed, kinda scary even, maybe because of the color, or the paper scales… Also, the nose changed since the first book, and why would this dragon be that BIG ? I mean, the Vardens does not have the egg YET ! Even if they found it in the first ten pages, the hatcheling will need at last six month to be adult…
You do realize not all dragons are alike? The nose is supposed to be different, it distinguishes the dragon. And it probably looks deformed for the reason of the scales. As for it’s size; it’s just a cover. Eragon’s cover had an adult Saphira on it even though she was introduced as an egg. Same goes for Thorn; he was introduced as a smaller dragon.
The cover’s represent the last /known/ dragons. They can’t be awesome as little lovable bundles of smoke now can they?
If you Download it to your computer you’ll see its real colors. *duh*
It might have already hatched a while back my theory is that the girl who angela cast dragon bones for is the owner
why will a dragon rider want the blessings of another not -so- mature rider??
well what about saphira?
I cried when i got the tweet about the book, and i cried even harder when i saw this! Finally!!!
the dragon looks just like the obnoxious “dog-Human Hybrid” in the ad to the right of my screen…”Is this image real or fake?”
Hmm… It looks a lot like Saphira. I expected the green dragon to look more masculine like Thorn or Glaedr.
It looks familiar to me, although I don’t know why…Maybe it’s just a déjà vu. Well, the cover looks nice, even though the scales look more like paper strips. Some already said that he looks like an insect because of the antennae. But those antennae are found in all cover arts so it’s no surprise this dragon’s also got those. Well, it’s quite good.
Took you long enough, eh, Chris?
The dragon looks like an insect.
wow dude, really?
you look like an insect
This… is amazing.
I think maybe the reason why his scales look like a pinata..is maybe he is a young dragon and it takes time for the scales to “harden”…idk just throwing an idea out there
I hope it’s Arya. Probably will. If yes, her dragon is simply beautiful !
i love it…. it’s beautiful… and he looks nice…. who will be his rider?
didnt you read the one post? its arya
Not sure I like the “scales” on his neck, makes him look like a piñata. But otherwise great cover!
I AM SO DAMN EXCITED.
I started this series when I was in fifth grade. By the time this last book releases in November, I’ll be a junior in high school. It’s been a long 6 years.
I started in 10th grade and am soon to be a Senior in college, and I’m still one of the biggest fans ever
