Aaronovitch, Ben  
Peter Grant #1: Midnight Riot (UK title: Rivers of London)
PC Peter Grant is destined for the department that handles paperwork, until his ability to speak with a ghost brings him to the attention of DCI Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, who investigates crimes involving the uncanny. A bizarre murder in Covent Garden puts them on the trail of a revenant spirit intent on making a bloody comeback.

Recommended by Elizabeth: Not your standard urban fantasy, this series is a beguiling mix of magic and police procedural set in modern-day London, with a refreshingly diverse cast of characters, plenty of action, and a decidedly British sense of humor. Plus, Peter is a geek, and pop culture references abound, from Tolkien and Monty Python to Pratchett and Call of Cthulhu.

London constable and apprentice magician Peter Grant hears the notes of an old jazz standard rising from a musician's dead body - a sure sign it wasn't death by natural causes. A second death puts him on the trail of a deadly magical menace targeting Soho's jazzmen.

Ackroyd, Peter  
London Under: The Secret History Beneath the Streets
Ackroyd tunnels down through the geological layers of London, excavating the lore and mythology beneath the surface. There is a Bronze Age trackway below the Isle of Dogs, Anglo-Saxon graves rest under St. Paul's, and the monastery of Whitefriars lies beneath Fleet Street. To go under London is to penetrate history, and the book is filled with the stories unique to this underworld: the hydraulic device used to lower bodies into the catacombs in Kensal Green cemetery; the door in the plinth of the statue of Boadicea on Westminster Bridge that leads to a huge tunnel packed with cables for gas, water, and telephone; the sulphurous fumes on the Underground's Metropolitan Line, and more.

Goblin Secrets
Signed on the title page, with 'National Book Award Winner' sticker on the front of the jacket. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, a witch named Graba takes in stray children. Rownie is the youngest boy in her household; his only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But in Zombay, humans are forbidden to wear masks, perform plays, or pretend to be other than what they are. Rowan disappeared when the Mayor's Guard raided an illegal play. Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins welcome Rownie; they also want to find Rowan, who might be the only person who can stop the mighty River from flooding the town.

Liaden: Necessity's Child
Publisher's signed edition with signature page tipped in; signed by both authors. The kompani sees none as enemy, and yet few as friend, existing in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream. Clan Korval is in many ways the opposite: wealthy in enemies, fortunate in friends, protecting itself with vigor, and teaching even its youngest children the art of war. When representatives of Clan Korval arrive on the planet Surebleak where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, it seems to the kompani that they are borne by the very winds of change, and their plans may bring catastrophe, changing the culture, and the kompani, forever. There, the lives of three people intersect: Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani's grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval's youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.

Poseidon's Children #1: Blue Remembered Earth
One hundred and fifty years from now, Africa has become the world's dominant technological and economic power. Crime, war, disease, and poverty have been eliminated. The Moon and Mars are settled, and colonies stretch all the way out to the edge of the solar system. And Ocular, the largest scientific instrument in history, is about to make a discovery. Geoffrey Akinya wants to continue his long-running study of elephants. But his family controls a vast business empire. After the death of his grandmother Eunice - erstwhile space explorer and entrepreneur - something awkward has come to light on the Moon. Geoffrey is dispatched there to ensure the family name remains untarnished. But the secrets Eunice died with are about to be revealed - secrets that could change everything, or tear this near-utopia apart.

Kingkiller #1: The Name of the Wind
In these pages you will come to know Kvothe as a notorious magician, an accomplished thief, a masterful musician, and an infamous assassin - but the story he tells also reveals the truth behind Kvothe's legend, from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic.
