I've only got to read part of the first book of this series, but it already has its hooks in me! The author behind the book also has an interesting life story. :)

Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Hardcover, 800 pages
Expected publication: November 8th 2011 by Random House

From Goodreads:
Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaƫsia? And if so, at what cost?

This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.

I haven't read this series yet, but my sister does and she loves it! Everyone I know who's read it has loved it, but I just find it hard to get into series that have so many books when I already feel behind on my reading.

Good pick, thanks for sharing! :)
