The Inheritance Cycle began with Eragon, the story of a boy and his dragon. It continued with Eldest and Brisngr, and it comes to a thrilling conclusion in Inheritance. Fans of Christopher Paolini’s fantasy series have been waiting three long years for the exciting final chapter to hit the shelves. On Tuesday, November 8th, the wait was finally over.
To celebrate the exciting day, Random House of Canada and Indigo Books & Music brought a six foot tall ice sculpture carved in the shape of 3 dragons to Indigo Manulife on a rainy Tuesday morning. There were even two copies of the book embedded in blocks of ice! Luckily, no one tried to chisel them out. (Click the images to enlarge.)
Many came up to the sculpture, bewildered that it was actually made of ice, but alas the water dripping from the dragons nose was all the proof they needed. Adults, teenagers and children all came out to take pictures with the sculpture and send their tweets to @indigogreenroom, the Indigo Events twitter account, for a chance to win a copy of the coveted book.
Many fans also tweeted their pictures to the author himself at @InheritanceCP, who happily tweeted back exclaiming that he loved the ice sculpture idea. The fun continued the following Saturday at Chapters Queensway where a second sculpture was showcased in the afternoon.
