Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s sequel to The Shadow of the Wind, called The Prisoner of Heaven is released in Australia and New Zealand today from one of my favourite publishers, Text Publishing (based in Melbourne). Carlos Ruiz Zafon is my favourite author and The Shadow of the Wind is my favourite book so you can imagine how excited I am to read the sequel. I can’t wait to immerse myself in Carlos’ Barcelona and return to The Cemetery of Forgotten Books.
The Prisoner of Heaven is an adult book (one of the few that I’ll read this year) but Text have also published several of his Young Adult novels in English. The Prince of Mist and The Midnight Palace are dark, atmospheric, gothic stories for teens and adults alike.
Take a look at the beautiful book trailer and make sure you get your hands on a copy from your library or bookshop.
