    Normally, The Grey King would be my favourite of the five books that make up this sequence Something about the setting in Wales, and Bran s loneliness and arrogance, and of course the tie in with Arthuriana, and the way that it begins to bring in some moral ambiguity when John Rowlands questions the coldness at the heart of the Light Somehow, I didn t love it

    Happy sigh I just finished rereading this one again last night With the exception of the first book in the Dark is Rising series, I love all of them atmospheric, dreamy, and creepy, the lot of them And steeped in old folklore and told in lovely prose so that they feel like they grew out of the ground instead of being written by a modern author I cannot recommend the

    You know you love a book from your childhood a lot when you go out of your way on trips abroad to see the places where the action happened Cooper s fourth novel in the DiR series is so steeped, no, drowned in all things Welsh that you can t help but want to get the hell there and check it out Which I did many years ago Her works in this series especially are refulgent and

    It s pretty much a tradition for me now to reread this series at this time of year, so I wanted to get it done before we move into 2013 The 2012 reread of The Dark is Rising sees me struggling with anxiety and depression issues, and I nearly didn t get round to reading this, this year But it is my comfort reading, so it was a good idea that I just planted myself firmly down with the book in hand

    I m beginning to think that this series would be better titled The Dark is Stumbling Around Awkwardly Without Ever Accomplishing Much In this volume our heroes take on the Grey King, a villain who we re reminded every other paragraph is powerful and evil than any other encountered so far.Despite this impressive reputation, the most evil things he manages to accomplish are a killing a few sheep and b

    This is one of the most well written young adult books I ve ever read They don t write em like this any There s a reason Susan Cooper won the Newbery Medal for this Her incredible, melodic descriptive language and her ability to interweave history, mythology, legend, and good old fashioned fiction bring this book far beyond a traditional boy with special powers book If you appreciate the English language an
