Coming Soon: The Prisoner Of Heaven - Carlos Ruiz Zafon

It is no small thing to not only make the top ten list of a fantasy/sci-fi book nerd, but to top it as favourite book of all time is kind of impressive for a Gothic historical thriller. Zafon did that with the incredible SHADOW OF THE WIND, and then brought out the darker quasi-sequel THE ANGEL'S GAME which was impressive as well. After seeing a couple of his early works (YA titles) translated in the meantime, it looks like Zafon is now ready to drop his latest book. And of course, it concerns The Cemetery Of Forgotten Books and it sounds like this is a direct sequel to THE SHADOW OF THE WIND and I absolutely CANNOT wait!

See below the Spanish Cover art for the blurb directly from Zafon's English website.

"The Prisoner of Heaven, the brand new novel from Carlos Ruiz Zafón, is to be published next summer.

The Prisoner of Heaven returns to the world of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the Sempere & Sons bookshop. It begins one year after the close of The Shadow of the Wind when a mysterious stranger enters the shop, looking for a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo.

The Prisoner of Heaven is published in Spain today and the English language version will be out in the UK on 21/06/2012"



  1. Aw, man. I might have to track this one down.

  2. Zafon is one of my favorite authors.

    Have to get this one.
