This is probably where I should recommend Diane Duane's Young Wizards
books (starting with _So You Want To Be A Wizard_).  Contemporary
fantasy in which the younger you are, the more powerful a wizard you
are (if you're a wizard at all), but it takes time to learn expertise
and finesse.  Very powerful books, especially _Deep Wizardry_.
