About the Author

Popular blogger and literary critic Richard Marcus is the editor for Epic India magazine, and a contributing writer and editor for blogcritics.org.

More About the Author

Once upon a time I worked in the magical world of theatre, but after nearly fifteen years of struggling to stay in one place I was worn out and needed a change. I went off into the real world for a while and worked first in a bead store and then in a denture lab. As T. S Elliot said "Mankind can only bear so much reality" and it all became too much for me, so I've run back to the shelter of the arts and took up the pen - well the keyboard anyway - and been happily ensconced here since 2005.

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/

And, we can't get a refund since it's a digital book.

My 12 year old son loves the Eragon books, but this purchase was a waste of money.

If you are among the legions of fantasy junkies awaiting the final act in Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle, you have probably spent the better part of this year speculating, guessing, weighing options, considering and eliminating variables as you pour over fan sites and Inheritance Cycle blogs. If you have, you're not much different than fantasy-junkie and book-reviewer-turned-author, Richard Marcus, whose debut offering, What Happens in Eragon 4, attempts to deduce the outcomes of Paolini's Inheritance finale.

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!

As my title states a waste of money and time reading it. If you have read the first three book's you know just as much or even more then the author of this work. I bought it thinking there would be some insight into the forth book, no joy in that respect.

I bought this book for my grandson who is hooked on the Eragon series having read the first 3 books multiple times. (I also read & enjoyed the first 3 at his recommendation.) I began to read this book to get a feel for it before giving it to him. I found it poorly written to say the least and a waste of money... I wish I would have read the reviews before buying and will definitely not be giving it to anyone as a gift.

Format: Paperback
When I sat down to read What Will Happen in Eragon IV I didn't know what to expect, but there were a few things that I did know...

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.

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".

This book is a COMPLETE waste of money. How can the author even legally earn money! I mean congratulations for writing a book and being able to publish it, but who would really publish this because it is unnecessary.
