ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Christopher Paolini was born in Southern California and lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana. The tall, jagged Beartooth Mountains that rise on one side of Paradise Valley inspired the fantastic scenery in Eragon, the first novel in his Inheritance Cycle, written when he was fifteen. Visit him online at www.alagaesia.com, and follow him on Twitter at @paolini, on Instagram at @christopher_paolini, and on Facebook at facebook.com/theinheritancecycle.
