The Dark Is Rising Sequence!
This entire series has been a dearly-loved favorite for the last thirty years. I’ve read it start-to-finish well over a dozen times over the years. Truly a masterful series!
They really do not make books like this anymore. This series is good for the young and old alike. Susan Cooper is a master!
For every youth!
My favorite series as a youngster, this is a great way to break into the fantasy genre.
