This sequel to the popular Grimoire of Zero series introudces new settings and protagonists, while retaining the thrilling action, detailed worldbuilding, and emotional resonance of its predecessor.

The horizons of the world are expanding—!

Saybil has spent the last three years holed up in the Forbidden Library working on his magic potions. And thanks to his work, Zero’s dream of a world where anyone can use magic is on its way to becoming a reality, as the potions spreading throughout the Great Continent give even non-magic users access to the beneficial powers of sorcery. Now, however, illegal potions are making their way to market—seemingly produced by a mysterious visitor named Har Bell, who comes from an unknown land across the fabled Ocean of Death. 

Saybil, Hort, and Kudo join an elite party to seek out this New World, which, despite the advanced state of their sorcery, is suffering under the twin scourges of a mana shortage and a brutal class system. Our heroes must cross the Ocean of Death and face a world of unknowns in their quest to help Har Bell save her people!

Book 4
Love conquers all—even the hearts of sorcerers and demons alike! But what does real love look like…?


Saybil, Hort, and Kudo head north in the company of the vaunted Mage Battalion, on a special mission from Headmaster Albus. Their destination? Niedora Fort, site of the Forbidden Library, locus of all knowledge suppressed by the Church. There they are to research the demonic Remnants of Disaster, which threaten the entire continent. The Chief Librarian welcomes them with open arms, but not all the witches and sorcerers assembled there do likewise… A young and talented witch named Ulula, in particular, has it in for these “cocky upstarts” from the Academy of Magic. She challenges Saybil to a duel, but in barges the great sorcerer Fianos…Loux Krystas’s son AND fiancé?! Love and death are only some of the terrors that await our three young mages in the wild and unforgiving North.

Book 3
War has come to the Witch’s Village—but will it bring disaster, or opportunity?

The extremists of the anti-witch faction have finally made their move, unleashing Remnants of Disaster upon the village. But why did their vanguard consist of a lone, powerless boy? And where is the follow-up attack that surely must be coming? Saybil must put aside the startling revelations about his past—and even his newfound love for Professor Los—to help his friends stand up to this new threat, where victory will mean graduation, but failure could mean the end of peace between the witches and the Church for good. Both sides will bring all their power and cunning to bear, but will this war end in tragedy or farce? The stage is set, and Saybil, Hort, and Kudo must prepare for the biggest performance of their lives!

Book 2
“Accomplish something as a mage—it can be anything you choose. The only stipulation is that you have to serve the village in some way.”

Saybil, Hort, and Kudo, three students from the Royal Academy of Magic of the Kingdom of Wenias, have been sent to the so-called Witch’s Village on a special field training program. Each has begun an enterprise that plays to their strengths as mages: Hort is working as a handymage, Kudo as a magical physician, and Saybil as a mana merchant, the first of his kind. While he may be the worst student in the history of the Academy, his limitless wellspring of mana makes him uniquely suited to support the others—until he’s told that simply dispensing mana isn’t enough! If he wants to graduate, he’s going to have to find a way to do more. Rocked by this revelation, Saybil finds himself at a crossroads…but there’s no time to worry about that now! Trouble is brewing, horrors lurk in the depths of the forest, and worst of all, love is in the air…?!
