There might not be any snow on the ground yet here in Kamloops, but I knew that this was hte perfect time to re-read the Dark is Rising. It almost makes me want an insane amount of snow to match the story, but my wiser self prevails. With the Winter Darkness comes the Dark, and there's no Will Stanton around to keep humanity safe! But besides that, this book makes me nostalgic for my book-riddled childhood, where even the books on all the school lists were new and engaging and whole worlds of discovery were left to explore. Obviously I still find new and exciting books to read, but there's something about those early books that stays with me in ways that new books often just miss. It's almost too bad that the popularity of children's and young adult fantasy came to the point of making so many terrible movies in the early 2000s, because most of the excellent books (like this one) should stay simply as books!

second book in the series. This one is about Will. His birthday is the winter solstice and he has turned 11 and he finds out he is one of the old ones. A story set in the winter, winter solstice and the Christmas holiday.

On the morning of Will Stanton’s eleventh birthday he wakes up to a snow covered world. Nothing strange about that, his birthday is just a few days before Christmas and it had been snowing hard when he went to bed. But this world looks different:

‘The snow was there as it had been a moment before, but not piled now on roofs or stretching flat over lawns and fields. There were no roofs, there were no fields. There were only trees. Will was looking over a great white forest: a forest of massive trees, sturdy as towers and ancient as rock. They were bare of leaves, clad only in the deep snow that lay untouched along every branch, each smallest twig. They were everywhere. They began so close to the house that he was looking out through the topmost branches of the nearest tree, could have reached out and shaken them if he had dared to open the window. All around him the trees stretched to the flat horizon of the valley. The only break in that white world of branches was away over to the south, where the Thames ran; he could see the bend in the river marked like a single stilled wave in this white ocean of forest, and the shape of it looked as though the river were wider than it should have been.’

And so Will goes out to explore the new world, the world of several hundred years ago. He discovers he is not just Will Stanton, the seventh son of a seventh son, but one of the ‘Old Ones’, mystical beings engaged in a fight between light and dark, the first of the Old Ones to have been born in 500 years. And Will is the sign-seeker: his quest is ‘to find and to guard the six great Signs of the Light, made over the centuries by the Old Ones ...’

Surprisingly, although this is aimed at an older age group than Over Sea, Under Stone I didn’t enjoy it quite as much. I think the main reason being is that it is one of those books where nothing is ever explained properly to the person on the quest (in this case Will). There are hints, and old poems, but nothing clear cut. I can’t help thinking that everything would be so much easier if everyone just got all the facts on the table at the beginning of the quest, so that the best course of action can be decided upon. Sort of like the Lord of the Rings “Well, the ring has to be thrown into the volcano, and this is exactly where the volcano can be found, and those other suggestions won’t work because ...”

But a decent read and I’ll be carrying on with the series. ( )

What a fantastic book to read as a young adult. I loved it. I re-read it as an adult and it didn't have all the magic it had for me as a kid. Perhaps I shouldn't have re-read it. I did introduce it to my husband who loved the series so I wanted to read it with him. Highly recommended.

Interestingly, I ran across a diary entry which stated that I had read this for the first time when I was in junior high and I did not like it. I really tried, but didn't care for it. I remember re-reading it in high school and LOVING IT SO MUCH. ( )

When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone;
Five will return, and one go alone.

Iron for the birthday, bronze carried long;
Wood from the burning, stone out of song;
Fire in the candle-ring, water from the thaw;
Six Signs the circle, and the grail gone before.

Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold
Played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old;
Power from the green witch, lost beneath the sea;
All shall find the light at last, silver on the tree.
