Q&As with Christopher: Navigating Themes, Comparison, Plots, & More!

Winter sunset

These Q&As are drawn from Christopher’s recent AMA on Reddit. We’re reposting them here for folks who haven’t seen them yet.

INHERITANCE CYCLE & BOOK FIVE

SupersuMC: Based on the description of the werecats’ shifting later on in Eldest, was the she-wolf Eragon encountered in Ellesméra “werewolf,” or is it a wolf or woman affected by the forest’s magic in such a way? If the former, how rare are they in comparison to humans (and werecats)? If the latter, which was it before the magic affected it?

The she-wolf is an elf who has modified her body to appear more lupine. So, different than the werecats.

ThornBigRedDragon: Oh, I love Thorn sooo much. Can you tell me some new facts about him? What was his first word?

Hmm. Not sure what his first word was, but I can tell you he loves lighting dandelion puffballs on fire and watching them burn.

owen_bower: Hey Christopher! I saw on your Twitter that you intend to write a fifth novel. Would it be about Eragon, Murtagh and Thorn, a new Rider, or maybe about Brom’s earlier life?

All I’ll say about Book Five is that many of the characters you’re familiar with will return, but you’ll also get to meet a bunch of new characters as well.
