As was announced last week, a new fantasy trilogy by Peter V. Brett have been bought by Natasha Bardon at Voyager Books in the UK! The series is set in the same world as the best-selling Demon Cycle series, 15 years after the events of THE CORE. The two main protagonists are Olive Paper and Darin Bales (two surnames that should be very familiar to readers of the recently-completed first series).
‘It’s thrilling to be embarking on a new entry point into Peter’s work which his fans will love, but which also offers a brilliant opportunity for new readers to discover him,’ says Natasha Bardon of Voyager. That’s right: while we highly recommend you also read Brett’s Demon Cycle series, these new books could serve as an entry point for new readers. The first novel is tentatively titled THE DESERT PRINCE.
Here’s what Brett said of the new series: ‘I have been laying the groundwork for this series for years and am so excited to finally bring it to life. It keeps all the things I love about the Demon Cycle, while taking things in a fresh direction that provides an exciting entry point for new and younger readers. Olive Paper will be a hero unlike any other.’
‘It’s been a privilege to watch the Demon Cycle books go from strength to strength,’ said Zeno’s John Berlyne. ‘Peter writes the very best kind of brilliantly immersive, compelling adventures. This new series will be an absolute must-read for all fantasy fans, everywhere.’
