* Read in the 1980s, seemed to be based on 1970-1980s time.
* Centered around British family of modern-day magic users.
* Main character was typical coming-of-age teenager
* Experienced magic events, usually initated by singing old British songs
* Magic events described a bit surreal way.
* Some elements from the King Arthur legends was build in (Not 100% sure).
* Children / Young adult book
It really touched me back then, but I didnt read it in English, it was a translated edition, so its hard to get a handle on some quotes or the like.
Anyone got a clue?
If it helps, the Danish title apparently is Den sorte rytter.
The song thing actually comes from me remembering that it is mentioned that one of the characters have a baritone voice, but that might apply to reciting poems as well
I'l grab a copy and see if it's as good as I thought back then.
Thanks alot for the help!
I got it from Gentofte library in the late 80'es, so the time frame is about right.
The Arthurian elements are most prevalent in The grey king, but there might be some that I don't recall in The dark is rising.
