The next book in The Alchemancer series is The Alchemist's Forge. The Alchemist's Forge will officially release on March 19, 2024. The Alchemist's Forge is available to pre-order now in ebook format.
Here's what it's about (could be minor spoilers if you haven't yet read The Inversion Solution):
Aaron never thought he’d have to navigate through an elemental maelstrom, but then he never thought he’d find himself trapped in the Underland, either. He’s traveled deep into the earth and is prepared to travel even deeper to find the alchemist’s forge, where he hopes to fabricate a device capable of correcting the elemental instability and saving everyone from annihilation or worse.
Though revenge remains elusive, Ensel Rhe knows the true face of his enemy now. With his adversary far away in the Grimmere, he turns his attention toward destroying the infernal machine at the center of it all, even though such destruction will destroy Brighton along with it.
Serena has lost control of her magic twice now, and too many have paid the price. Yet she is determined to never let it happen again. But her desire to save her people means she must face the deadliest of sorcerers. Can she control her magic against such a foe? Does she even want to?
This is likely the final book in the series, but I won't know for sure until I spend some more time with the outline. Stay tuned for more info on that as I figure it out myself. Writing is a journey, and even I don't quite know where the characters will take me sometimes. Serena, for example, was intended as a supporting character with a somewhat minor role, but she's now one of the most important characters and an integral part of the storyline.
