Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell [2004]

Just wanted to put in a quick plug also for Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. It’s about two English wizards bringing magic back to the world c. 1810. The main characters are at times frustratingly stupid, but generally they’re sympathetic and the way the author has blended magic into the real world is nicely done. It’s an ideal book to see how limiting yet empowering magic in the real world could be, and has a nice take on the world of Fae too.
