The plot follows a reclusive magician, Norrell, who comes out of hiding to prove once-and-for-all that real magic does exist. Intent on preserving his art for future generations, the aging magician soon takes an apprentice—Jonathan Strange—under his wing.
But when a rift occurs, the great magician and his capable protégé turn against one another in a fierce battle for supremacy. This sizable page-turner will capture your attention from start to finish.
