Product description

Without question, one of the greatest fantasy series ever written for children, centred around the scariest, most hypnotic winter tale you could ever imagine. When Will wakes up on Midwinter’s Eve, the day of his eleventh birthday, he steps into a changed world of fear, snow and ancient magic. The Dark is rising, and he must join the Old Ones of the Light to drive it back. A terrifying battle between good and evil. A lost king buried under a hill. Herne the hunter, riding the storms. The mythic grail, lost for centuries. A rook’s feather in the black night. A wild wish that might save you. Pure magic: a spine-tingling fantasy that will forever transform winter (and the whole world) for you.

  • The complete pack of Susan Cooper’s astonishing fantasy sequence
  • An iconic classic of children’s fantasy, lauded by Robert Macfarlane and others
  • Wonderful writing bursting with tension, atmosphere, magic and suspense
  • Books in this series won the Newbery Medal and Tir na n-Og awards

“An epic of great power… The sequence is a remarkable achievement.” Mary Corran

“The eeriest novel I know… I first read The Dark is Rising in my mid-teens, and it roused a lifelong fascination for old paths and tracks.” Robert Macfarlane, author of The Old Ways
