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.

Peter Grant #4: Broken Homes
Police constable and apprentice magician Peter Grant has three main objectives for the new year: pass the detective exam; work out what his relationship with Lesley is supposed to be; and get through the year without destroying a major London landmark. A town planner has gone under a tube train; a grimoire has been stolen; and the prime suspect in a mutilation killing in Crawley may be an associate of the Faceless Man, Peter's least favorite ethically challenge magician. Now something odd is going on in Elephant and Castle, on a housing estate designed by a nutter, built by charlatans, and inhabited by the truly desperate. And if it's connected to the Crawley case, Peter might have some jurisdictional problems due to his prickly history with the local river spirits.

When Jenn's spell to create a husband goes awry, Wisp is transformed into a man. But he is not the only newcomer to Marrowdell - and far from the most dangerous of those who are suddenly finding their way to the valley.

Liaden: Necessity's Child
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.

Powder Mage #1: Promise of Blood
Field Marshal Tamas' coup against his king sent corrupt aristocrats to the guillotine and brought bread to the starving. But it also provoked war with the Nine Nations, internal attacks by royalist fanatics, and a scramble for money and power by his supposed allies: the Church, workers unions, and mercenary forces. Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail. As attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about old peasant legends, about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should.

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.

Old Man's War #1: Old Man's War
Responsible for protecting humanity out amongst the stars, the Colonial Defense Force wants people with decades of knowledge and skills. You'll be taken off Earth, never to return; serve two years in combat; and, if you survive, given a homestead on a distant planet. 75-year-old John Perry is taking the deal.

Old Man's War #5: The Human Division
For generations the Colonial Union has defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU's secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - against the CU. And they've invited Earth to join. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy. Against such possibilities, managing the survival of the CU won't be easy either. It will take diplomatic finesse, political cunning - and a brilliant 'B Team', centered on the resourceful Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that can be deployed to deal with the unpredictable things the universe throws at you when you're struggling to preserve the unity of the human race.
