Dan Brown and I are like this!
My Reluctant Reaper series is set and Hell and features Dante, the poet himself, as the love interest of my resourceful heroine, Kirsty d’Arc. The 700-year age difference sometimes causes friction.
In fact, I’ve used all sorts of historical, mythological and original characters in my bizarro version of Hell.
This can only work in my favor, right? At least everyone will know who Dante Alighieri is.
Megabestselling author Dan Brown will return with a new novel on May 14th. Inferno will revolve around Dante Alighieri‘s epic poem, Inferno. You can download a free illustrated eBook copy of Inferno.
Like The Lost Symbol and The Da Vinci Code, the book will feature the adventures of Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group will print four million copies initially.
Brown had this statement in the release: “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 … 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.”
