The first book in the series, Eragon, was self-published by Paolini's family in 2002 and re-published in 2003 by Knopf; it was followed by Eldest in 2005. Both were New York Times bestsellers[1][2] and together have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.[3] The third book in the series, Brisingr, was published on September 20, 2008,[4] and the fourth book, Inheritance, is set to be released on November 8, 2011.[5] The series was intended to be a trilogy, but this changed as Paolini decided that the story was too complex to conclude in one book. -Wikipedia

I just finished reading Inheritance. My favorite character in the book was King Galbatorix. I would not say the book is complex reading. Its quite easy actually compared to other series.

I will not give away any spoilers on story or characters, but I just really like how Paolini portrayed the king. I would have been disappointed to see a villain like the cliche Dark Lord who sits in his tower and has no personality (nothing against LOTR, I love those).

Those of you who haven't already should read Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series. Seems like that's where Paolini got most of his ideas :P

Re-reading book 3 of The Wheel of Time right now!!! I'm really hoping that the Last Battle exceeds my expectations, but I'm not quite sure how it is going to play out.
