The Inheritence Trilogy's Fourth Book

Depressing as it is for me to admit it, I have actually read (for reasons quite beyond my control) the second and third books in Paolini's Inheritance (of Star Wars) cycle. Also, this is kind of a big news in the young adult fantasy niche I guess, so here it is:

The (finally) final part of Paolini's... thing... has been announced and should come out in November 2011. God, I hope it's really his last...

Also, the cover. It has a gay dragon on it, as usual:

    I give Eragon a free pass because Paolini was a teenager when he wrote it. But if his writing hasn't improved over the past decade, then that is certainly cause for some criticism. Still, I'm a bit willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    However, yes, I'll be honest, his entire story is lifted from Star Wars, but that's obviously because Star Wars itself is lifted from just about everything via Joseph Campbell.
