We are delighted to announce that the exciting new novel by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Labyrinth of the Spirits, will be published in English in 2018. It will be published in Spain by Planeta on 17 November this year. The English language edition will be published simultaneously in the UK, US, Canada and Australia, with a translation by Lucia Graves.


The Labyrinth of the Spirits is a return to the spellbinding universe of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, although at present the plot is a closely guarded secret. It is the final chapter in the cycle of novels that began in 2001 (2004 in the UK) with The Shadow of the Wind and continued with The Angel’s Game and The Prisoner of Heaven.


Kirsty Dunseath, Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s UK publisher says:


“I am absolutely thrilled to be publishing this brilliant new book by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I don’t want to give away the contents but what I can say is that it is a terrific novel absolutely crammed with drama, intrigue, humour, passion and stories within stories. Carlos has created a captivating world in his Cemetery of Forgotten Books cycle, and this final book brings all the stories together in an absolute firecracker of an ending that anyone can enjoy.”
