Just because the “Fifty Shades” movie franchise is coming to an end doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of it.
Yesterday (Tuesday, 10th October), E. L. James took to social media to announce that she will be releasing a new book titled, “Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian”. Based on her original 2011 novel, the narrative is told from Christian Grey’s point of view.
As you may know, “Darker” is the sequel to James’ 2015 novel, “Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian”. “Hello all. I’m delighted to let you know that Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as told by Christian will be published in the US and UK on 28th November 2017. Other territories to follow. I do hope you enjoy it. Much love,” the 54-year-old author wrote.
“The inside of Christian Grey’s head is a fascinating place to be. In ‘Grey’ we got the first glimpse of what makes Christian tick, but in ‘Darker’ we go deeper, into his most painful memories and the encounters that made him the damaged, demanding man Ana falls in love with. Writing this novel has been a journey of discovery, and I hope readers will find what I’ve learned as compelling as I did,” James said in a statement.
Last year, James gave her followers a sneak peek at the copy when she shared an image of 2 pages from the book on Facebook. In it, her male protagonist is sitting anxiously in his car, waiting for his leading lady to come out of work and meet him. Readers will also get a better insight into Christian’s dark past and his new rekindled relationship with Anastasia.
