I'm so glad you've enjoyed it. There IS another book in the works, though it's more of a spinoff than a direct continuation of the trilogy. It's working title is POLYMAKER. I recently announced it on my socials, but here's the description from Publisher's Weekly:

According to Stringer, the novel, which is set in the world of the author’s Paper Magician series, tells of Alvie Brechenmacher, a young woman who travels to England to “realize her dream of becoming a Polymaker—a plastics magician—and discover its hidden spells under the nephew of the renowned Magician Tagis Praff.”

I'm drafting it now. I hope you'll like it!(less)

“Cadoc sighed. “Someday, chief, I’ll avenge your sense of humor. I don’t know who murdered it, but it died before its time.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Shadow of Flame

“The world still has rules, we’ve just been playing with an incomplete set.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“Wake her up,” she commanded Ashem.

The dark man folded his arms across his chest. “Politeness is the sinew that holds the wing together.”

Exasperated, Kai bared her teeth. “That is especially rich, coming from you. What is it, some kind of dragon proverb?”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“We don’t have that kind of magic anymore. This world—your world—you could call it our post-apocalypse.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“Talking to Rhys was nothing like talking to Cadoc. With Cadoc, everything was a game. He smoldered because he meant to smolder. There was nothing calculated or put on about Rhys, and that made him more mesmerizing than Cadoc could ever hope be.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke
