Abstract:

"At the dawn of the nineteenth century, with the Napoleonic Wars raging on land and sea, most people believe magic to be long dead in England--until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes a celebrity overnight. Yet he is challenged by the emergence of another magician, the brilliant novice Jonathan Strange, who is young, charismatic, and daring: the very opposite of Norrell. The two join forces in the war against France, but Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, straining his partnership with Norrell and putting at risk everything he holds dear."--Back cover.
