Valiant by Holly Black!

For a modern take: The Magicians by Lev Grossman

- Jill Rothstein, Andrew Heiskell Library 

Urban fantasy with a tough guy wizard?  Try Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden series.

Fun and funny satirical fantasy with amazingly profound and poignant moments?  Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels.

- Stephanie Whelan, Seward Park Library

Caitlin R. Kiernan for someone interested in urban fantasy.

For someone looking for fantasy with a more traditional sci-fi bent, I’d suggest C.J. Cherryh.

- Jenny Baum, Jefferson Market Library
