We’re excited to share news about I Am Olive, Peter V. Brett‘s new trilogy!
As The Bookseller reports, UK rights were sold in a high six-figure deal to HarperVoyager, and North American rights went to Del Rey in a major deal, as well. These books are in the Demon Cycle universe and share some of the same characters as the original series, but I Am Olive is written for readers who may not have encountered a Peter Brett work before.
The first installment, THE DESERT PRINCE, takes place fifteen years after the end of the original Demon Cycle and centers on Olive Paper and Darin Bales, who were both born during The Core. I Am Olive provides another way for readers of all ages to enjoy the Demon Cycle. Brett says, “Olive Paper will be a hero unlike any other.”
The Core was a #7 Sunday Times bestseller, and in Germany the first volume of The Core spent nine weeks on the Der Spiegel bestseller list, reaching the #3 spot!
