And when? Well, that depends on the speed with which he’s able to write the other stories he would like to tell first. But the decade spent dedicated to shaping the destiny of Alagaësia and its characters make it impossible to walk away from the world forever. He cares about it too deeply. Many of the loose ends deliberately left at the end of Inheritance will be addressed in the next book, which we’ll call “Book Five” for now. Although it does not directly continue the story of the Inheritance Cycle, it will feature some of the same characters and themes found in the series. In fact, Christopher has future plans for many other Alagaësian tales!
Until then, we’ll eagerly anticipate the next adventure: a space-faring quest set in the distant star systems of our universe.
