Over Sea, Under Stone (Dark is Rising Sequence)

by

Over Sea, Under Stone (Dark is Rising Sequence) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising sequence is a classic in children's fantasy, and the entire series is wonderful. But I have a special fondness for the very first in the sequence, Over Sea, Under Stone. While visiting their mysterious "Great Uncle Merry" at his seaside home in Cornwall, three children find an ancient map that begins an epic quest involving the forces of light and dark. Subtle magic and hints of Arthurian legend make this a captivating lead-in to the mythic sequels.
