Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian will be on bookshelves in both the US and UK on November 28th, with Australia's release date to follow.
The new book is a follow-up to 2015’s Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, with James saying in a statement: "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."
Last year, in honour of Ana’s birthday on September 10th, James released two pages from the new book, detailing Christian’s thoughts as he sat outside Ana's work.
"I sit. Waiting. My heart is thumping. It’s 5:36 and I stare through the tinted glass of my Audi at the front door of her building. I know I’m early, but I’ve been looking forward to this moment all day," it begins.
As well as this new book, the Fifty Shades Freed movie is released worldwide on Feb. 9, 2018.
