The answer is yes, I do have a very good idea of the number of books. At the moment I have notes for 2 dozen. That number may get lower or higher depending on whether those stories flesh out some more, but I've got story plots noted out for the first 15.(less)

Thanks for the questions.

1. Water increases a person's stamina, and fire is agility.

2. The combination of magics doesn't increase anything within the sorcerer. Nate's electricity will be looked into more and more over the coming books as he learns to use it.

3. I plan on revealing what Air and Water and Water and Earth magics combined do within the next few books.

“The memory of being shot by a woman pretty much kills any sexual urge you have toward her. And if it doesn't, you have issues.”
Steve McHugh, Crimes Against Magic

“Words actually failed me. I felt as dumb as my lounge-less friend in the corner. "You injected me with vampire blood?" My words were said slowly, ensuring that I didn't get one wrong or accidentally call Francis a fucking asshat. "You're a vampire?"
Francis' expression managed to convey how stupid he thought that question was. "I live underground, and you've never seen me outside. I'm pale in complexion ands obviously hundreds of years old. What did you think I was? Agoraphobic?”
Steve McHugh, Crimes Against Magic

“left her to work, grabbed a book that Holly had lent me, and tried to get past the second chapter. It was about vampires and werewolves and the love of a good woman. Apparently it had a lot of fans. I wasn’t amongst them. About thirty pages in and I’d already come to the conclusion that it was shit, but I figured it could only get better.”
Steve McHugh, Crimes Against Magic

“It’s not about power; it’s about the willingness to do something that will stop your enemy cold. The willingness to win at any cost.”
Steve McHugh, With Silent Screams

“So, yeah, I’m afraid of this thing. But that just means I’m going to try harder to beat it. Because fear should never be a reason for not doing the right thing.”
Steve McHugh, Born of Hatred

“I’m an enigma wrapped inside a riddle, all bundled in something quite wonderful.”
Steve McHugh, Born of Hatred

“Everyone hates fractions. That’s why they make you do them. It’s character building.”
Steve McHugh, Crimes Against Magic
