The Bookminder
Raised by an aging priest in a remote mountain village, Liara has spent her life as an outsider, shunned by those around her due to the circumstances of her birth and the wizard who sired her. She had always hoped she had inherited his magic, but not until Father Phenlick is forced to banish her does she learn the truth of it. Only sixteen, Liara finds herself thrust into the custody of the valley's resident wizard, a recluse and bookworm who refuses to teach her magic. However, he must somehow keep her occupied in his remote castle, and so sets her to organizing his extensive library---exactly the wrong thing to do. Liara learns what little knowledge she can "steal," until Nagarath concedes and offers her just enough to be dangerous. When Liara's entire village is mysteriously destroyed, the pair find themselves delving into the truths of their mutual unhappy past, lured by the war mage who binds them together. Thrust from their snug castle and tiny valley as they flee persecution, Liara and Nagarath find themselves traversing the continent, pursing Liara's father in his quest for the ultimate magical talisman.

That's plenty for a freshman in high school, but Sami has a pantheon of Greek gods looking over her shoulder, expecting far more of her than "merely" remaining true to herself.

White Dragon Black
A "practitioner" of magic, Jonathan Alvey serves countless struggling souls in his profession of paranormal private investigator. However, nothing good ever comes for free, and magic demands a terrible toll. Jonathan is slowly losing his humanity as magic slowly alters the very make-up of his being. Every addictive high (riding the White Dragon) is followed by a soul-searing low (the Dragon Black). Despite his repeated vows to give up magic for good, there is always someone in dire straits, a wretch in need of rescue, and the world to save. It all will someday demand the ultimate price. But, Alvey is no saint. A bourbon-swilling, chain-smoking wreck of a man, he relies on the help of his few friends to keep himself together, often as loosely toggled together as the junker he drives, and just as likely to break down. Even so, he's the best the City of Hades has to offer, and he's perfectly suited to its rough streets and haunted abandoned buildings. R. M. Ridley weaves an amazing world in his White Dragon Black series, one that creates avid fans of its readers. (Tomorrow Wendell, Bindings & Spines, and Blondes, Books & Bourbon.)
