Susan Cooper's award-winning Dark Is Rising sequence, which has delighted fantasy readers for over forty years, can be found for the first time in one brilliant volume! The relentless battle between the Light and the Dark has raged since the beginning of time. Neither side has ever been able to claim absolute victory...and so the fight continues. But every so often the evil surges, and a member of the Light must step forward if the world is to find its way out of the darkness. It is at the center of this epic struggle that three ordinary children, and one not-so-ordinary child, find themselves. The danger is overwhelming and the stakes have never been higher. Will the Light finally be able to conquer the Dark--or will all good be lost forever?

5.0 The Dark Is Rising Sequence: Silver on the Tree; The Grey King; Greenwitch; The Dark Is Rising; and Over Sea, Under Stone
I haven't seen the movie and I don't intend to because this series (despite its problematic reliance on a racist dark is bad, light is good central image) was incredibly important to me as a kid. I'd re-read the whole series every year. I preferred it to the Narnia series. I re-read it a few years a...
