Paolini is best known for Eragon, his popular fantasy novel about a young hero and the bond he forms with a beautiful blue dragon. The novel kick-started the internationally bestselling fantasy series the Inheritance Cycle, which became a global phenomenon, and concluded in 2011.

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is an exciting departure for Paolini. This new book is an adventure on an intergalactic scale, where incredible events have world-shattering consequences. But it’s also a story of human strength in the face of adversity, where we follow an incredible protagonist on her awe-inspiring journey.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonised planet, xenobiologist Kira Navárez finds an alien relic that thrusts her into the wonders and nightmares of first contact. Epic space battles for the fate of humanity take her to the farthest reaches of the galaxy and, in the process, transform not only her – but the entire course of history.

Paolini says of the novel, ‘I am extremely excited to be working with the awesome folks at Tor Books to publish To Sleep in a Sea of Stars. This book is my love letter to the genre of science fiction.

‘With it, I wanted to capture the sense of wonder I feel when looking at the stars … or when thinking about the future of humanity as it expands beyond Earth. I’ve been working on this story for over six years, and I can’t wait for people to read it!’

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars will be published in the UK in September 2020.
