I liked the first book in this series a lot
I haven’t accually read this book, but according to the other reviews, it looks horrible, I really loved the first book in the series so I thought that it would be good, but i dont know
Beautifully written children's story that encompasses magic and heroics, good vs bad, and the process of growing up and learning how to make hard choices. Will become an instant classic for the family- parents and kids both.
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!
