Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On holiday in Cornwall, the three Drew children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that

they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that — the key

to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching

for it themselves, the Drews put their very lives in peril.

Review:

"The charming beginning to Susan Cooper's [Dark Is Rising] series....This is an outstanding...tale that all young [readers] and adults will thoroughly enjoy." School Library Journal

Review:

"A tale of mounting excitement, suffused with legendary, mystical, and allegorical overtones." Horn Book

Synopsis:

Three children on a holiday in Cornwall find an ancient manuscript which sends them on a dangerous quest for a grail that would reveal the true story of King Arthur and that entraps them in the eternal battle between the forces of the Light and the forces of the Dark.
