Description

Peter V. Brett, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Demon Cycle, begins a brand new epic fantasy adventure set in his beloved world, following a new generation of heroes.




Fifteen years have passed since the end of the war with demons, creatures of darkness who have hunted the night and plagued humanity for time out of mind. The heroes of mankind's hour of need have become legend, and those that remain struggle to escape their shadows.



Olive Paper and Darin Bales have grown up in this new, peaceful world. Demons have all but been destroyed, but dangers still lurk for the children of heroes.


Olive, Princess of Hollow, has her entire life planned out by her mother, Duchess Leesha Paper.
A steady march on a checklist to prepare her for succession. The more her mother writes the script, the more Olive rails against playing the parts her mother assigns.


Darin faces challenges of a different kind. Though free to choose his own path, the weight of legacy hangs heavy round his shoulders. It isn't easy being 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 when Olive and Darin step across the wards one night, they learn the demons are not all gone, and those that remain hunger for revenge. Events are set in motion that only Prophecy can foresee as Olive and Darin seek to find their own places in the world in time to save it again.

Review quote

'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, Sunday Times bestselling author of UPROOTED


'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.'
#1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks


'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 New York Times bestselling author of the War Arts Saga


'THE DESERT PRINCE is the work of a master at the top of his game. The new cast of would-be heroes instantly draw you into a world full of old dangers as Brett cranks up the tension to unbearable levels. If you're going to read this book, cancel all your plans because there's no way you'll be able to put it down once you start. This is the best Peter V Brett book so far.'
Mike Shackle, author of WE ARE THE DEAD
