Kobe Bryant's latest book, The Wizenard Series: Season One, was given a posthumous release Thursday.
It was a follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Wizenard Series: Training Camp.
"Welcome back to Dren! We hope you are all ready to catch up with the West Bottom Badgers for another magical basketball season," Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's wife, wrote on Instagram.
Bryant collaborated with author Wesley King, who shared what he called the "bittersweet" news of the book's release that is "about chasing your dreams."
The fantasy novel follows Reggie, a basketball player who must overcome magical obstacles.
Bryant and his daughter Gianna were among the nine people who died in a helicopter crash Jan. 26 in Calabasas, California.
