Having used his magic to help Wellington win the battle of Waterloo Jonathan returns home to Arabella and the publication of his book on the history of magic. The latter is strongly opposed both by Norrell and the government, who see the Raven King as an influence on the Luddite movement. Meanwhile Lady Pole predicts something bad will befall Arabella and she is proved to be right as the Gentleman spirits her away to visit the fairy kingdom. On her return she is pronounced dead and, after Norrell refuses to revive her, she is buried. Jonathan is now more determined to publish the book as a tribute to his wife and anxious to summon the Gentleman to bring her back to life.

I do not know how it will end between you and Norrell... but I'll tell you what I'll do. If you fail and Norrell wins, I shall leave his service... I'll take up your cause and then there'll still be two magicians in England... two opinions upon magic. But if he should fail and you win... I'll do the same against you. Good enough?
