Without any bit of complaint, we're starting to believe that as long as EL James is around, there will be something new happening with Fifty Shades of Grey. EL just announced that the latest in her rom/dom series has a release date! The book, Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian, is going to hit bookshelves just in time for the holidays on November 28. And it's not only this news that makes us as excited as Anastasia, but the fact that there seems to be even more to come.

  • "Darker" goes deeper.

    This book is all about getting inside Christian's head, which, as EL (or Erika) shared in a press release, "is a daunting place to be. In Grey, we got the first glimpse of what makes Christian tick, but in Darker, we go deeper, into his most painful memories and the encounters that made him the damaged, demanding man Ana falls in love with."

    Oh my goodness ... give us more!

  • Dornan is her muse.

    It's clear that Jamie Dornan is Erika's muse -- we do love how she began the "retelling" of her books by getting into Christian's mind ... and there is no doubt the man attached to the image of Christian is now Jamie Dornan. Forever and ever.

    What's also really neat about the books is that it makes you think of the scenarios within the other books and compare, see everything in a new light. Christian's light. Which, obviously, is a darker place.

  • The retelling did start with 'Grey.'

    Since the retelling started with Grey, and now onto Darker, we can assume that the next installment will be Freed, as told by Christian. So we have a lot to look forward to. Please let this happen.

    We can't forget about Anastasia, of course. Erika can write even more in Ana's voice. If our excitement about all things Fifty continues, this may be in the future. Because just as Ana and Christian cannot imagine their lives without each other, we cannot imagine Erika's life without new Fifty Shades material to write.

    Can't wait for November 28.
