Raised on a steady diet of fantasy novels, comic books, and Dungeons & Dragons, Peter V. Brett (“Peat” to his friends) has been writing fantasy stories for as long as he can remember. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Art History from the University at Buffalo in 1995, and then spent over a decade in pharmaceutical publishing before returning to his bliss. His début novel, THE PAINTED MAN (aka THE WARDED MAN in the US) was published in the UK (HarperCollins Voyager) in September 2008 to fantastic critical acclaim and was named one of Amazon.co.uk’s 10 Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels of 2008, and has been nominated for the David Gemmell Legend Award for Fantasy.
The Demon Cycle series has (so far) sold in more than 20 countries.
THE DESERT SPEAR, the second book in the Demon Cycle, was published in the UK in 2010, and cemented Peter’s reputation and position as a leading talent in contemporary epic fantasy. The highly-anticipated third book in the series, THE DAYLIGHT WAR, was published in February 2013 by Harper Voyager UK. Both of these novels are international bestsellers, and have enjoyed top ten rankings in The Times as well as international rankings. Peter’s two novellas, THE GREAT BAZAAR and BRAYAN’S GOLD were also published as a collected edition in April 2013. In addition to his fiction, Peter has also written a handful of Red Sonja stories for Dynamite Comics.
Brett’s latest series, the Nightfall Saga, launched in 2021 with THE DESERT PRINCE. The second novel, THE HIDDEN QUEEN, is due to be published in the UK in 2024.
