Over Sea, Under Stone

Over Sea, Under Stone Upon recommendation, I purchased all five books of the Dark is Rising sequence as a boxed set just after Thanksgiving. Susan Cooper's fantasy series draws upon Celtic myths and British locales to spin the tale of struggle between good and evil, between dark and light.

Over Sea, Under Stone is the first book in which we meet the three Drew children: Simon, Jane, and Barney. Together they follow the clues in an ancient manuscript in search of a grail hidden away by an Arthurian knight. Of course, the forces of evil known as the Dark are also seeking the grail and the children find themselves in peril.
