It has been announced that he is near to finishing[1] the first book, The Desert Prince,[2] of a sequel trilogy called the Nightfall Saga trilogy[3] (I Am Olive was the original working title)[4][5] which takes place in the same universe after the end of The Demon Cycle's pentalogy. It became available for pre-order in August 2020.[6] On December 17, 2020, the release date was updated to August 3, 2021 according to Peter V. Brett's Twitter and personal website,[7][8] but was suggested to be less specific in a followup tweet on December 24, 2020.[9]

On February 17, 2021, Mr. Brett leaked the tentative name of the second book as The Hidden Queen.[10]

  9. Twitter - @PVBrett: Worldwide English of THE DESERT PRINCE will release 1st week of August 2021. Pub dates for translations are TBD but some publishers are working to release in that same timeframe. Will announce when I have confirmed dates.
  10. Twitter - @PVBrett: Just wrote the 1st ~700 words of The Hidden Queen, sequel to The Desert Prince. Doesn't seem like much. 700 words is a pittance. But the 1st words are always the hardest. They don't even have to be good in the 1st draft. They just need to break the damn ice.

    The ice is broken.
