It’s been four years since we’ve seen any new material from bestselling author Dan Brown, and maybe more importantly, four years since we’ve gone on a journey with Brown protagonist Robert Langdon. But that is about to change.
According to Huffington Post, Brown is set to release a new book in the Robert Langdon series (The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol) in May. The book, entitled Inferno, will center on Dante and his “epic journey in verse.” This is what Dan Brown had to say about his new material:
“Although I studied Dante’s `Inferno’ as a student, it wasn’t until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante’s work on the modern world,” Brown said in a statement. “With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm.a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways.”
The book will be released on May 14th. Just to make things interesting, that’s a week before acclaimed author Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner) is set to release his new book, And the Mountains Echoed — which was originally called And the Mountains Roared.
