I just finished reading "The Last Magician" by Lisa Maxwell and I was wondering if there has been any announcement regarding a sequel. Not only did the book end at a cliff hanger, but it seemed like it was leaving room for questions to be answered in a second book.
The author confirmed in an interview with FictionFare that she's "hard at work" on a sequel.
What’s next for you? Are you working on anything right now that you can tell us about?
I am hard at work on the sequel for THE LAST MAGICIAN. I also have a dark little Middle Grade that I’m working on revisions to, so we can go out on submission with it.
And in this interview with TheRoyalPolarBear, that the two books are intended as a duology.
Are there any future plans to The Last Magician or at least to the sequel of the book? How many installments would there be?
It is planned as a dualogy. But this is a great big story and a huge world, so I wouldn’t be opposed to writing more in this world.
Apparently she's struggling with it a little...
I’ve been really struggling with getting words for TLM’s sequel. I’m SO proud and happy with how TLM turned out, and part of me has been psyching myself out about being able to make the sequel better. Then, for some of these blog stops, I had to come up with deleted scenes and I found the first drafts of TLM’s opening. I’d forgotten that I’d started it as a first-person book. I’d forgotten how bad that first draft was. That’s helped some, because it lets me know that I can fix whatever I write, even if it does suck.
