Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O, Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland

Magic was real but something caused it to die out in 1851.

A chance collision in a Harvard hallway leads to a whole new life for linguist Melisande Stokes. The guy she bumped into, Tristan Lyons recruits her into D.O.D.O a government black budget operation and the ancient cache of documents she translates for him prove that witches were useful members of society until their powers faded. Tristan and his superiors want to know why and to bring magic back even in a limited form for uses that are 'classified'. The burgeoning team that Tristan pulls together soon learn that magic has rules and whilst some can be broken if you mess with time, time will break you.
