Dan Brown is back, and so is Harvard academic Robert Langdon with Dan Brown's latest novel titled Origins.
Dan Brown, the renowned author of Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol and Inferno is all set to release his next book in the Robert Langdon series next year.
The book will follow the adventures of Harvard professor Robert Langdon, who is a symbologist, and unravels the secrets and conspiracies of ancient mysteries.
Bill Scott-Kerr, the publisher and editor of the 52-year-old writer, has praised the author's unique blend of electrifying storytelling, historical reinterpretation, and genius code making.
"The fact that there is to be another instalment in this record-breaking run of books will be hugely exciting to his millions of fans around the world," Scott-Kerr said.
The marketing material of Origin revealed by the publisher states that the new book will retain Brown's "trademark style," featuring "codes, science, religion, history, art and architecture."
"It will take Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions, and the earth-shaking discovery that will answer them," the marketing material reads.
Brown's books have also been adapted into movies and have been successful Hollywood hits. The Da Vinci Code, which was the second book in the series, was the first film and was released in 2006. The movie was afterwards followed by Angels & Demons in 2009.
Though there were plans of a movie on third book in the series, The Lost Symbol, it was skipped to make way for a film adaptation on Inferno. The movie has been directed by Ron Howard and is shot in Venice Italy. Tom Hanks will reprise his role of Robert Langdon from the previous films and he will be joined by Felicity Jones, Irrfan Khan, and Sidse Babett Knudsen.
Origin is scheduled to be published next year by Transworld in UK, Doubleday in USA and Canada and by Penguin Books in Australia. The exact release date has not been announced yet.
