This eye-catching interactive companion book to Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle is designed to provide newly elected Dragon Riders with background about the world of Alagaësia. A map and drawings of the natural terrain provide mise en scène, while flaps reveal mininarratives, and envelopes contain personal notes written by Eragon Shadeslayer. A time line of formative events, like the beginning of the Dragon War, and a taxonomy of Alagaësia inhabitants—humans, elves, dragons, and numerous species of animals—will intrigue enthusiasts. Ages 9–up. (Nov.)
