The imaginative “Peter Grant” series cleverly juxtaposes the magic and the mundane. Peter Grant, police officer and apprentice wizard, solves cases with elements drawn from the historical and mythological background of London. Start with “Rivers of London”.

Australian author Matthew Reilly’s books are like action movies and often feature a supernatural twist. Try “Ice Station,” the first in the Shane Schofield series, or “Temple,” which takes Professor William Race on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure in Peru.

Tamora Pierce’s fantasy books feature a diverse cast, strong characters (she is most well-known for Alanna, the first female knight in Tortall in a hundred years), and rich, inventive world-building. I’m so looking forward to reading the upcoming “Tempests and Slaughter,” a prequel to the “Immortals.”

Rainbow Rowell’s books are written in a simple, engaging style. Her realistic characters are a delight and will stay with you for a long time. “Eleanor and Park” is a personal favourite!
