Christopher Paolini is an American author of young adult fantasy novels. His series is called the Inheritance Cycle. Christopher was home-schooled by his parents growing up. After graduation, he began writing. His break came when Carl Hiaasen‘s stepson read his novel Eragon and Hiaasen brought it to the publisher Knopf’s attention. Christopher considers several authors, including J.R.R. Tolkien, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula K. Le Guin and Frank Herbert to be some of the main influences to his writing.

Paolini made his debut as a published author in 2002 with Eragon. Below is a list of Christopher Paolini’s books in order of when they were originally released:

    I just sent you a message off your Order newsletter, and just found that Murtagh is a continuation of the Inheritance series thanks to this site. Wow! I remember that book 4 was supposed to be the last in this series, and can’t wait to get into Murtagh. This series has been a favorite of mine, and wouldn’t have known, maybe ever, if it weren’t for your newsletter. Many thanks. BTW, I’ve just started ‘The Chinaman’by Leather. You gave him to me as your second favorite author at one time. I’m enjoying it so ar, and can’t wait to see where it takes me. Thanks again!
