The coloring book is illustrated by Ciruelo, a friend and one of my favorite dragon artists. He’s done an amazing job with Saphira, Thorn, Fírnen, and all the other dragons of the Inheritance Cycle! I love how he’s brought Alagaësia to life through his drawings of scenes, characters, and locations from the entire series. After so many years spent thinking about the world and the story, it’s really gratifying to share these images with you.
Ciruelo’s drawings are intricate and elegant—perfect for coloring. Plus, they’re just fun to look at! I mean, check out this cover! Cool! In addition to his work, there’s a drawing of my own in the book, a drawing with lots and lots of scales. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
As always, may your swords (and pencils) stay sharp!
