Publisher Comments:

The Dark is rising in its last and greatest bid to control the world. And Will Stanton — last-born

of the immortal Old Ones, dedicated to keeping the world free — must join forces with his ageless

master Merriman and Bran, the Welsh boy whose destiny ties him to the Light. Drawn in with them are

the three Drew children, who are mortal, but have their own vital part in the story. These six fight

fear and death in the darkly brooding Welsh hills, in a quest through time and space that touches the

most ancient myths of the British Isles, and that brings Susan Cooper's masterful sequence of novels

to a satisfying close.

The Dark Is Rising Series are amazing stories. However, the last book, the Silver on The Tree, ends on quite a sad note. Yet I would recommend everyone of all ages to read these amazing, adventure-filled stories!

So, take some time to enjoy yourself!
