Carlos Ruiz Zafon, one of my all time favourite authors, has writtten a follow up to his beautiful book The Shadow Of The Wind. It is called The Prisoner of Heaven and is due to be released in its English translation next week on June 21st. The story sees Daniel, Bea and Fermin returning to the narrative and is once again set in beautiful, gothic Barcelona.
I'm very excited about this release, as it directly ties in to Shadow... (Unlike The Angel's Game which, although brilliant, was advertised as a predecessor but actually only made brief reference) and tells more of Fermin's story - a character many will agree was one of the most charismatic and intrigueing characters from the novel.
I've pre-ordered my copy and will review it as soon as I complete it, but in the mean time, why not try out a new book and read The Shadow Of The Wind if you haven't already? I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
