Are Darin and Olive ready to be heroes?

Here are some of the great reviews the novel has received so far…

‘Epic in scale and emotionally intimate, it delivers immaculate world-building, complex politics … and propulsive, edge-of-the-seat plotting. Settle down for a feast of turns, twists, magic and an astonishing, non-gratuitous bit of brain-eating.’ — Daily Mail

THE DESERT PRINCE is a statement by its author that his first series’ popularity was no fluke, and cements him as a top notch author…This new book is pure joy for fans of The Demon Cycle, but also offers such a solid story and thrilling entertainment on it’s own that even new readers will have no problem in finding themselves enthralled by this world… [A] masterpiece.’ The Book Pyramid

‘Focusing on Jardir and Arlen’s children, Brett launches a new saga that allows readers relatively easy entrance into the series.’ SFF World

‘An intricately crafted tale of intrigue and courage where one’s station and lineage determines everything, good and bad. An exciting read. Peter Brett has outdone himself with this first book in a new series.’ Terry Brooks, NYT Bestselling author of the Shannara books

THE DESERT PRINCE is a deeply intimate, yet epic adventure. Heart-wrenching, smart, and modern, this book kept me wide-eyed and wide awake for many-a-nights as I struggled step-for-step alongside Olive and Darin from the green lands to the desert pits to the darkest recesses of the demon minds. THE DESERT PRINCE has set a new standard for fantasy.’ Wesley Chu, #1 NYT Bestselling author of the War Arts Saga

‘Peter Brett takes the reader with him and his characters on an electric and unrelenting charge through the demon-haunted depths of the Warded universe, full of love and death.’ — Naomi Novik, New York Times bestselling author of Uprooted

THE DESERT PRINCE is an enjoyable fantasy, with an interesting setting and conflict, some deep characterization, several moving moments, and good fight scenes.’ Fantasy Literature

‘If you love the epic fantasy genre, this will make you feel right at home […] Peter V. Brett slips right back into the rhythm of things without compromising the characteristic elements of the original series while putting a new generation in the spotlight and allowing them a chance to endear themselves into the hearts of readers new and old.’ BiblioSanctum

THE DESERT PRINCE is a book that demands you turn the page, a book that that you think about when you cant be with it, a book that is relentless in its need to be read. Brett is a master storyteller.’ FanFiAddict (9.5/10)

Voyager also publishes Brett’s Demon Cycle novels and novellas in the UK.

Three Zeno Titles in Waterstones’ Best of 2021!


‘Tis the season of Best Of lists! We are very happy to report that three Zeno titles have been selected for Waterstones’ Best of 2021 lists! There’s one each in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror categories. Read on for more details.

CYTONIC, the third novel in Brandon Sanderson‘s Skyward series appears on the Science Fiction best-of list! Published by Gollancz in the UK, here’s the synopsis…

Spensa’s life as a Defiant Defense Force pilot has been far from ordinary.

She proved herself one of the best starfighters in the human enclave of Detritus and she saved her people from extermination at the hands of the Krell – the enigmatic alien species that has been holding them captive for decades. What’s more, she travelled light-years from home as a spy to infiltrate the Superiority, where she learned of the galaxy beyond her small, desolate planet home. Now, the Superiority – the governing galactic alliance bent on dominating all human life – has started a galaxy-wide war. And Spensa has seen the weapons they plan to use to end it: the Delvers. Ancient, mysterious alien forces that can wipe out entire planetary systems in an instant.

Spensa knows that no matter how many pilots the DDF has, there is no defeating this predator.

Except that Spensa is Cytonic. She faced down a Delver and saw something eerily familiar about it. And maybe, if she’s able to figure out what she is, she could be more than just another pilot in this unfolding war. She could save the galaxy. The only way she can discover what she really is, though, is to leave behind all she knows and enter the Nowhere. A place from which few ever return.

To have courage means facing fear. And this mission is terrifying.

Peter V. Brett‘s best-selling and critically-acclaimed THE DESERT PRINCE is included among the best Fantasy novels of the year! Published in the UK by Harper Voyager, here’s the synopsis…

Fifteen years have passed since the demons were destroyed. Heroes have become legend, and those that remain live in their shadows.

Olive, Princess of Hollow, has her entire life planned out — a steady march toward succession. But the more her mother writes the script, the more Olive rails against playing the parts she is assigned.

Darin is the son of the man people say saved the world. Everyone expects greatness from Darin, but the only thing he’s ever been great at is hiding.

But now it’s time to fight the darkness.

When Olive and Darin step across the wards one night, they learn that the demons are not all gone, and those that remain hunger for revenge.

Are Darin and Olive ready to be heroes?

And last, but by no means least, Grady Hendrix‘s THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP is among the best Horror novels of the year! (The novel also made it through to the final round of the Goodreads Readers Choice Awards this year.) The novel is published in the UK by Titan Books

In horror movies, the final girl is the one who’s left standing when the credits roll. The one who fought back, defeated the killer, and avenged her friends. The one who emerges bloodied but victorious. But after the sirens fade and the audience moves on, what happens to her?

Lynnette Tarkington survived a massacre twenty-two years ago, and it has defined every day of her life since. And she’s not alone. For more than a decade she’s been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, putting their lives back together, piece by piece. That is until one of the women misses a meeting and Lynnette’s worst fears are realized — someone knows about the group and is determined to take their lives apart again, piece by piece.

But the thing about these final girls is that they have each other now, and no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

THE DESERT PRINCE is already starting to garner some great advanced reviews…

‘An intricately crafted tale of intrigue and courage where one’s station and lineage determines everything, good and bad. An exciting read. Peter Brett has outdone himself with this first book in a new series.’ — Terry Brooks

‘The Desert Prince is a deeply intimate, yet epic adventure.

Surely one of the most-anticipated new fantasy novels of the year, there’s still plenty of time to catch up on the story before this new novel is released! All of Brett’s Demon Cycle books — five novels and three novellas — are also published in the UK by Voyager.

Here are just a few of the great reviews the Demon Cycle series has received so far…

‘Brett ably blends fantasy and horror in this arresting first novel, the first in a planned series. An imaginative and exciting tale, recommended where there is interest in epic fantasy.’Library Journal (Starred Review) on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Brett’s fantasy debut is a highly readable adventure with a unique setting and three strong protagonists. Brett includes plenty of exciting battles, terrifying monsters, and heart-wrenching moments to make the focus of the story — the development of flawed, ordinary children into legends — believable. Consider the series this begins worth tracking.’Booklist on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Brett’s debut builds slowly and grimly on a classic high-fantasy framework of black-and-white mortality and bloodshed. Brett’s gritty tale will appeal to those who tire of sympathetic villains and long for old-school orc massacres.’Publishers Weekly on THE PAINTED MAN

‘A gripping adventure — a very promising start to a new series, and an excellent first novel.’Locus on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Makes you genuinely excited by the idea of reading more […] will leave you impatient for the next installment.’SFX on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Extends the author’s panoramic vision […] Fans of epic fantasy in the tradition of Robert Jordan and George R. R. Martin will enjoy the arrival of a strong voice in multivolume epic fantasy.’ Library Journal on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘Sure to leave fans on tenterhooks waiting for the next installment.’ Publishers Weekly on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘An incredible piece of work.’ Fantasy Faction on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘Along with Brandon Sanderson and Daniel Abraham, Peter V. Brett is at the forefront of purveyors of epic fantasy whose teeth were ground on the likes of Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and David Eddings […] in other words, with THE DAYLIGHT WAR, he’s at the top of his game. I give this my highest recommendation (including the first two novels in the series.)’ Tor.com

‘If you like your Fantasy big, dramatic, and with characters you grow to love the Demon Cycle will be quite memorable. With THE DAYLIGHT WAR, Brett reaffirms his high place in modern Epic Fantasy.’ — Mad Hatter Reviews

‘Peter V. Brett expands and deepens his endlessly fascinating and increasingly complex world.’ Buzzfeed on THE SKULL THRONE

‘Brett knows exactly what he’s doing […] The book is very steadily paced – this a slow burn and much of it focuses on the interpersonal relationships between various characters [though] there are plenty of action-packed key scenes peppered throughout the book. The demons are mostly added as a spice here; Brett is setting up his world and the characters in order to tell his epic fantasy tale in a way that is both personal and global. It’s a page-turner, and quite possibly the best so far.’ — Starburst Magazine on THE SKULL THRONE

‘Complex and engaging […] all I can do is recommend this book to readers. I tore through this volume, and many nights I would stay up late to read just another chapter […] or four. I can’t wait to see how this diverse cast of characters takes on the demons once and for all.’ Fantasy Faction on THE SKULL THRONE

‘Brett delivered a conclusion that […] felt earned for each of the main characters. A war concluded, a peace delivered, and a saga ended…for now.’

SFFWorld on THE CORE

‘Thoroughly addicting […] a thrilling adventure that is, without question, [Brett’s] greatest achievement yet.’ — Bookreporter on THE CORE

‘Only very rarely does a long epic fantasy series conclude satisfactorily. With THE CORE, Peter V. Brett manages to hit all the right notes.’ — The Ranting Dragon

Three new novels from Peter V. Brett coming soon from Voyager!


 www.KarstenMoran.com

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.’

We will share news about release dates and covers as soon as we have them, so be sure to keep an eye on our newsfeed and also follow us on Twitter.

The Demon Cycle series includes five published novels and three novellas, all published in the UK by Voyager — another novella, THE BARREN, is due out later this year.
