More About the Author
Thankfully I seem to be making progress as a writer as I began to pick up freelance work early in 2008 with the publication of an extensive interview with Willy DeVille in the German edition of Rolling Stone Magazine. Since then I've begun publishing the occasional article for the German based web site Qantara.de, written the liner notes for a DVD, and been commissioned to write the book "What Will Happen In Eragon lV? (published in 2009) by the nice people at Ulysses Press. They must have liked the work I did on it, and of those who actually read it before reviewing it there seems to be an even split between liking and hating it, because they commissioned me to co-author a second book. "The Unofficial Heroes Of Olympus Companion" which was published in 2011. I'm still looking for a publisher for my own fantasy series, "The Paths Life Takes" and am working on a couple of other projects as well. Of course you can always read my reviews and other articles at my blog Leap In The Dark (www.richardrbmarcus.com) or at Blogcritics.org.
Somehow or other I find myself fifty years old, happily married and living in Kingston Ontario Canada with three cats. We all live in a small house with a big yard happily being crazy and making art as we can. Once a month you can find me at a local open mic poetry/prose series trying out new work. You can also catch the readings from this open mic series on CFRC radio live at 88.1 FM in the Kingston vicinity or streaming on line at their web site. http://cfrc.ca/

Will Galbatorix determine Eragon's true name and use it to control him and Saphira? Will the final dragon egg hatch for Arya? Or Nasuada? That would certainly address the immortality issue for her and Eragon, making it possible for them to be together - unless, of course, Eragon manages to convince Arya to fall in love with him. Who might be lost in the quest to regain the final egg from Galbatorix? Where is the Rock of Kuthian, anyway? And what's with that creepy werecat hanging around with Angela, the bone-reading witch? Is the Vault of Souls a repository for heart of hearts?
So many questions to consider.
Marcus endeavors to answer all of them, publicly risking what the rest of us merely shout in derision at Internet blogs late at night. What Marcus does well is to provide a view from the balcony, carefully dusting off and considering variables while we watch over his shoulder, drawing our own inferences and formulating our own conclusions.
Marcus's breezy, conversational style makes for a quick and enjoyable read. It's as though he's in the room with you. While thorough, he doesn't take himself too seriously and even offers a few well-placed jokes. (Never send to know for whom the egg hatches, after all!Read more ›
1) That I was a good candidate to write this review because I just happen to be personally acquainted with the sights, the spectacles and the smells--most definitely the smells, of Dragon*Con. Trust me, a person will never forget their first experience with a five foot, faux-fur costumed wookie who has not bathed or brushed his teeth after sleeping in his car for three days... I know I can't. And I have tried. Anyone who has ever attended Dragon*Con will understand my meaning only too well.
2) I had never read any of the books in the Inheritance cycle.
3) I wasn't about to let the author off the hook because I had not read them. His job, as far as I was concerned, was to carry me through with enough information that this book could stand alone. I expected a book that I could enjoy without feeling lost or like I just walked in on the middle of a conversation.
The book of predictions that Richard Marcus has put together reads like a novel itself. It's an absolutely fantastic and fascinating read. The writing is intelligent and conversational. I love that he never talks down to readers; an expectation that readers can keep up with his intellect and his complex explication of the original three books. I was captivated by the story he was telling, it felt more like I was having an in-depth conversation with an old college friend, rather than reading a book. It reminded me very much of those late night study sessions that unlocked the mysteries of literature for me. I read the most whilst riding the train to work. There were times when I almost missed my stop because I was so engrossed in the story.Read more ›

I accidentally bought this book because I thought it was by the original author. It plain sucks! This guy is taking advantage
of a popular series.
My 12 year old son loves the Eragon books, but this purchase was a waste of money. He kind of glanced through it and said it was "stupid".Published on December 4, 2012 by bane
Got tricked and thought it was the last book. How can you write a book about a book!!!!!! I haven't read it and why would I read it when I should read the actual book. Read morePublished on December 27, 2011 by Ken Fidler
