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.

Young Lord Penric now wears the white robes of the Bastard's Order, complete with shoulder braids marking him as a divine and sorcerer, while he pursues scholarly studies in the court of the Princess-Archdivine.

When a Locator of the Father's Order shows up on the Archdivine's threshold, in need of a sorcerer for a journey, and she volunteers Penric, at least Des is thrilled with the prospect of an adventure. As they travel into the mountains to locate Inglis, a shaman accused of murdering his best friend, the situation grows into a test for all of Penric's developing talents.

Broken Earth #1: The Fifth Season
A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great rift across the world's sole continent, from which spews enough ash to darken the sky for years, or centuries. It starts with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal. And it ends with you: the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where orogenes wield the power of the earth as a weapon and are feared far more than the long cold night. And you will have no mercy.
