Newman's Seven to HarperVoyager

Newman's Seven to HarperVoyager

HarperVoyager has acquired rights to the final book in a trilogy by Peter Newman.

Natasha Bardon, deputy publishing director, bought world English rights in The Seven from Juliet Mushens at UTA.

The Seven follows The Vagrant, released in April this year, and the forthcoming The Malice, out next year, both from HarperVoyage.

The books are set in a fantasy world with science-fiction elements, where humanity’s last hope is a mute man known only as The Vagrant, who wields a sword from an age of heroes.

Bardon said: "I’m absolutely thrilled to be carrying on this fantastic series. Peter Newman is a rising star. His perfectly balanced blend of fantasy, science fiction and humour is so refreshing. I’m so pleased that fans will be able to return to a world filled with winged swords, demons, vagrants and goats."

Newman said: "I’m delighted to have the chance to conclude the Vagrant’s story. I’m also very grateful to Harper Voyager for showing confidence in me at this early stage of my career, and to everyone who has supported the book so far; this wouldn’t have happened without you."

HarperVoyager will publish The Seven in hardback in April 2017.
