The Official Eragon Coloring Book (The Inheritance Cycle) Paperback – May 2, 2017
About the Author
Christopher Paolini's love of fantasy and the natural beauty that surrounds his home in Montana inspired him to begin writing the Inheritance Cycle at age fifteen. He became a #1 New York Times bestselling author at nineteen and spent the next decade immersed in the world of Alagaësia. Also an accomplished artist, Christopher drew the interior art for the books. In his spare time, he enjoys sharpening knives, playing video games, lifting heavy things, and searching for the perfect leather-bound notebook. Find out more about Christopher and the Inheritance Cycle at alagaesia.com, paolini.net, and @paolini.
Ciruelo is an award-winning and highly sought-after fantasy artist who has created numerous book and album covers, including those for George Lucas's Chronicles of the Shadow War trilogy and the tenth-anniversary edition of Eragon.

The 46 designs (not including the title page) in this coloring book are based on the entire Inheritance Cycle. The illustrations by Ciruelo are fantastic and provide a new visual interpretation of the stories. Just looking at the designs brought back the fun I had when I first read Eragon. My husband, youngest daughter and I tried to take turns reading it but in the end, we each got our own copies as we couldn't wait.
We are also all getting our own copies of this coloring book as well. It is great fun to see how each of us interprets a design in our own way. The designs are detailed and some contain small and intricate areas to color.
The 46 designs are based four books: “Eragon”, “Eldest, “Brisingr”, and “Inheritance”. There is a quote from the book on the facing page of design so you know which book and which scene the design pertains to.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium.
46 designs by Ciruelo based on the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
Printed one side of page (with book excerpts on the back of the page)
Paper is heavy weight, white, ever so slightly rough and perforated
Designs stop well short of the perforations. There is a double framing line around the edges of each design.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper
Water-based markers, gel pens, and India ink pens did not bleed through the paper. Some gel pens require additional drying time.
Colored pencils worked really well with the paper. The slightly rough texture of the paper provided good tooth which allowed pigment to easily adhere to the page. I test both oil and wax based pencils and both worked well. I could layer the same color for deeper pigment, layer multiple colors and blend easily using a pencil style blender stick.
If I use alcohol-based markers with this style of book (printed one side of page) but I use a blotter page of card stock under my working page to keep ink from seeping through. I would suggest either using a blotter page or removing the coloring page from the book beforehand if you use alcohol-based markers.
