Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Strange and Norrell both want to bring magic back to England, but go about it in rather different ways once Strange has outgrown tutor Norrell. And Norrell makes a mistake early in his career in using the faery king to bring Lady Pole back to life.
Jolly good, very inventive, and some super magic, particularly to help defeat Bonaparte's French army.
