Psychologist Kris Marlowe doesn't believe in vampires, until a silver-tongued rogue rises out of a coffin at dusk, introduces himself as Sir John Falstaff, and hypnotizes her into letting him taste her blood.

Kris's best friend Vi, who writes vampire romances, jumps at the chance to interview a real vampire. Fellow psychologist and paranormal cult expert Bram von Helsing also would love to meet an actual vampire. Kris remains skeptical, thinking she's just encountered one of San Francisco's many sanity-challenged individuals.

Then in an attack of spine-tingling horror a horde of murderous monsters descend on the San Francisco neighborhood. Faced with creatures that kill with a single glance, Kris and everyone she cares about must fight for their lives. But how?

In this dark fantasy with urban paranormal attitude, the only chance of survival for Kris and her friends is to seek help from the biggest bad boy in tavern-haunting history, who once drank ale and now drinks only blood—Sir John Falstaff, undead and misbehaving in San Francisco.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller from the author of The Da Vinci Code
 
Bilbao, Spain
 
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
 
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
