The dark rose, and then fell. The Dark Is Rising Sequence
Finally finished The Dark Is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper. It was an entertaining series and it has some great moments throughout. Even though you know how it will end from the very beginning (good always wins doesn't it?) following the kids in their discoveries, battles, and adventures is still fun. When I got to the end of the fifth book I was definitely sad to see them go. I realized I had come to like the characters and, like a week at camp, was sad to go our separate ways. Yep they will miss me too. I don't think this series will keep the interest of the most difficult of young readers but has a lot in there for those of us that are YA at heart. There's always next summer, another camp, and another group of characters somewhere else.
