Elizabeth Kostova, author of The Historian and The Swan Thieves, will publish a new novel in 2013. Formerly with Little, Brown, Kostova will move to Ballantine Bantam Dell at Random House for #3. Here's a bit more on the book, from a press release from Random House:

The new novel will be set in the U.S. and Eastern Europe, and like The Historian will move between past and present, and combine elements of suspense, myth and folklore.

Part Gothic thriller, part love story, The Historian draws from the legend of Dracula and clearly captured the imagination of readers; it debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. The Swan Thieves takes on Impressionist painting and explores love, madness and art.

We interviewed Kostova for The Book Case back in the fall of 2009, and she mentioned then that her readers especially enjoy "the mix of historical and contemporary settings" as well as travel through time. Based on Random's short plot description, it sounds like Kostova is not straying from what she does best!

Did you enjoy The Historian and The Swan Thieves? Will you look for this new novel in .  . . 2013? (Sorry. I always feel a little bad about giving you teasers more than a year in advance.)
