Okay so I pretty much exclusively read garbage fantasy fiction so if that’s not your bag: sorry.
Carry On - Rainbow Rowell
Simon is the prophesied chosen one, but he’s not very good at it.
His magic boarding school roommate Baz is evil and a jerk and probably a vampire.
Essentially elaborate Harry Potter fanfic. Charming characters, and a really interesting magic system.
Son of a Witch - Gregory Maguire
Sequel to Wicked, the titular son of a witch mostly stumbles aimlessly round Oz trying his best to get by.
The Edge of Reason/Ruin/Dawn - Melinda Snodgrass
A trilogy! The main plot is about how religion is a scam created by the Old Ones to feed off humanity’s fears (or something), but it’s very VERY character focused and honestly that all mostly just serves as backdrop. Richard Oort is special because he’s one of the rare humans born without any magic. Actually uses the word bisexual. (Fair warning for discussion of rape and suicide, though the actual events don’t take place ‘on page’, as it were.)
