John Jarrold has sold German rights to a fantasy trilogy by Scottish author William King to editor Carsten Polzin, of Piper Verlag, a major German publisher, for a strong five-figure sum in Euros.

The deal followed a bidding war between Piper and Heyne, another major German publishing house.

'Both the author and I are delighted,' said Jarrold. 'Bill King has a strong readership throughout Europe and this marks the second deal for this trilogy following on from Czech rights, which sold to Polaris.'

The first book in the series, which Jarrold has characterised as a cross between Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe novels and the fiction of David Gemmell, is DEATH'S ANGELS - which is presently being considered by publishers in the UK and US, as well as other European and Asian markets.
