Inheritance is the fourth and final book in the Inheritance Cycle written by American author Christopher Paolini.
The Inheritance Cycle was originally intended to be a trilogy, but Paolini has stated that during writing, the length of Brisingr grew, and the book was split into two parts to be published separately. Because of this, many plot elements originally intended for Brisingr are in Inheritance.
Since the release of Inheritance, Paolini has expressed his future interest in expanding upon Alagaësia and the Inheritance Cycle. In an interview, he talked about a potential "book five," a prequel centering around Brom, and said that he has planned "around seven more stories set in Alagaësia — and one of those is in fact a series."

Famous quotes containing the word inheritance:
“I call it our collective inheritance of isolation. We inherit isolation in the bones of our lives. It is passed on to us as sure as the shape of our noses and the length of our legs. When we are young, we are taught to keep to ourselves for reasons we may not yet understand. As we grow up we become the men who never cry and the women who never complain. We become another generation of people expected not to bother others with our problems.”
—Paula C. Lowe (20th century)
