…who are going to be excited as all get out for this one. Here’s the word from Publishers Weekly:booknewsbrisingr.jpg

Knopf Books for Young Readers has revealed the name and cover of the third title in Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance series. The book, called Brisingr, will have a first printing of 2.5 million, which is the largest initial print run to date for the Random House Children’s Books division.

Not only is the book coming, but readers will also be able to partake in a little midnight madness. Quoth PW:

Brisingr had been scheduled for release on September 23, 2008, but will now go on sale at 12:01 a.m. on September 20. “After the initial announcement of Book Three’s release, we received an outpouring of requests from booksellers hoping to host midnight launch parties,” said Nancy Hinkel, publishing director at Knopf Books for Young Readers.

I can see it now – late night showings of Eragon, games, costumes, the full Harry Potter treatment. Possibly even some … officially licensed swords? Sounds like a good time to me.
