If you don't mind the "kids' book" angle, I would recommend The Dark is Rising. Loosely based on the Arthurian myth, set in Cornwall, and has similar themes (young hero discovers he is something more than meets the eye). It also has magic, mystery, and as an added bonus, it's being currently made into a movie with Ian McShane of Deadwood fame and also Christopher Eccleston. Fantastic!
