Read full description of the books:



Viveva un tempo in Inghilterra un re allevato dalle fate. Un'epoca di grandi prodigi che nella Londra di inizio Ottocento sembra ormai materia di leggende. Nelle vie londinesi riecheggia però un'antica profezia attribuita al sovrano che annuncia una nuova era di portenti. E a breve giunge in città Gilbert Norrell, capace di far rivivere gli antichi fasti della magia grazie ai suoi poteri straordinari. Misantropo, scorbutico e dotto, vorrebbe porre le sue arti al servizio del governo nella guerra contro Napoleone. E quale migliore occasione per mettersi in evidenza che riportare in vita la moglie di un importante ministro, da poco scomparsa? Il destino della giovane donna sarà il filo conduttore del romanzo, insieme al rapporto fra Norrell e Jonathan Strange, eccentrico gentiluomo che ha da poco intrapreso la carriera magica. Prima maestro e allievo, poi antagonisti in uno scontro che assume toni sempre più foschi, i due torneranno a unirsi nella più pericolosa delle imprese... Ma la drammatica profezia è davvero destinata a compiersi? Il ritorno della magia sul suolo britannico vale un sacrificio così grande?
