"I DID NOT KNOW THAT YOU CHILDREN WOULD BE THE ONES TO FIND IT. OR WHAT DANGER YOU WOULD BE PUTTING YOURSELVES IN." Throughout time, the forces of good and evil have battled continuously, maintaining the balance. Whenever evil forces grow too powerful, a champion of good is called to drive them back. Now, with evil's power rising and a champion yet to be found, three siblings find themselves at the center of a mystical war. Jane, Simon, and Barney Drew have discovered an ancient text that reads of a legendary grail lost centuries ago. The grail is an object of great power, buried with a vital secret. As the Drews race against the forces of evil, they must piece together the text's clues to find the grail -- and keep its secret safe until a new champion rises.

And, frankly, didn't feel like that was a problem. Still, it was worth the read for the sake of fuller ...
I read this years ago and remembered it to be the least exciting of the Dark is Rising series. The audiobook reading of it was fine, but it was a little boring - though that may have been because I remembered the story (which is more than I can say for many books I've read!).
I read the first half of OSUS thinking it was a prequel, and I think that may have influenced my opinion of the book. I kept waiting for the action to start, when in reality it had been going on for quite awhile already. So far I'm not too impressed by this 'highly acclaimed series', but it's not ba...
