Darker nights are coming: new EL James novel to debut in November

Posted: October 16, 2017

November 28th will see the launch of Darker, a brand new book from EL James, in paperback and ebook platforms. Darker is a sequel to Grey, which was a re-telling of the Fifty Shades of Grey story from Christian’s perspective, and publishers Arrow says Darker follows the same format and is a “deeper and darker” take on the love story.

The marketing text for Darker states: “Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms. But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?”

Find out on November 28th – unless you’ve already read the original books, of course, in which case you’ve probably already got a good idea of the answer to that question.
