Darker: Fifty Shades of Black as told by Christian

After Grey‘s success, E L James returns to the bookshop with Darker, the events of Fifty Shades told from Christian Grey’s point of view. A deeper and darker version of the love story that has fascinated millions of readers worldwide, published in Italy by Mondadori.


Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.

But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself.  Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?

And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?
