These new books round out three bestselling fantasy and science fiction trilogies.
The Book of Life: All Souls Trilogy (Viking) by Deborah Harkness completes the series about Diana Bishop, a globe-trotting, time-traveling historian-witch in pursuit of a mysterious alchemical manuscript.
The Magician's Land (Viking) by Lev Grossman is the third act in the story of Quentin Coldwater, a young magician now cast out of Fillory, the enchanted but imperiled land he once ruled as king.
World of Trouble: The Last Policeman Book III (Quirk) by Ben H. Winters finishes the series about Hank Palace, a detective in a small New England town trying to solve cases as a doomsday asteroid bears down on Earth.
