Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"And Where the Midsummer Tree Grows Tall by Pendragon's Sword the Dark ShallFall."

The Dark is rising in its last and greatest bid to control the world. Six individuals have come together to drive it back for good: Will, the Sign seeker; Bran, the raven boy; Jane, Simon, and Barney, the grail seekers; and Merriman, the wise mentor who unites them all. Together they stand ready to face the Rider and the full force of the Dark.

But the last object of power must first be found. A sword of legend magically forged of pure crystal remains hidden in the Welsh hills. Without it, the Light has no hope against the Dark. Will and his companions must travel through time and space in an epic clash of magical powers that will decide the fate of us all.

Review:

"Susan Cooper is one of the few contemporary writers who has the vivid imagination, the narrative powers, and the moral vision that permit her to create the kind of sweeping conflict between good and evil that lies at the heart of all great fantasy. Tolkien had it. So did C.S. Lewis. And Cooper writes in the same tradition." Psychology Today

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

In this conclusion of a tale begun in "Over sea, under stone," Will Stanton, the Welsh boy Bran, and the Drew children try to locate the crystal sword that alone can vanquish the strong forces of the Dark.

About the Author

Susan Cooper is best known for her acclaimed sequence of fantasy novels known as The Dark Is Rising, which includes Over Sea, Under Stone (1974 Newbery Honor book); Greenwitch; The Grey King (1976 Newbery Award book); and Silver On the Tree. Her novels for young readers also include Seaward and Dawn of Fear. In collaboration with actor Hume Cronyn, she wrote the Broadway play Foxfire and — for Jane Fonda — the television film The Dollmaker, for which they received the Humanitas Prize in 1985.
