Shad Hadid and the Forbidden Alchemies
In this thrilling sequel to the “refreshing” (Kirkus) middle grade fantasy adventure Shad Hadid and the Alchemists of Alexandria by George Jreije, Shad and his friends must venture beyond the safety of the Alexandria Academy if they’re to stop the nefarious necromancers.
After defeating the necromancers and bringing alchemy back to the Alexandria Academy, Shad Hadid is ready for an exciting second term at school. It doesn’t hurt that he’s being called a hero, but the new lessons are harder than he expected and his mentor, Kahem, is nowhere to be found.
When Shad intercepts a letter from an informant with a possible clue for thwarting the necromancers’ evil plans once and for all, he's determined to help. Joined by his friends, Shad embarks on a perilous journey across Lebanon to track down this secretive stranger. But shadowy forces lurk around every corner, eager to take revenge on the Alexandria Academy's young heroes—and not everyone is as they seem. Unable to tell who they can trust, can Shad and his friends find what they seek and save their school?

"Full of friendship and loyalty, a good number of twists and turns, and a smattering of bathroom jokes, this sequel to Shad Hadid and the Alchemists of Alexandria (2022) continues in much the same vein. More magical fun and trickery." -Kirkus Reviews
