Now that we've reached the finale of the Dark is Rising saga I can say pretty definitively that the titular book is the strongest in the series. It may not be the longest or the most action-filled, but it sets the stage with the mythology of Cooper's world far better than any of the subsequent novels - even this one. Here we see Will and his companions take their final stand against the forces of the Dark (and triumph), but somehow everything seemed a bit lost. In my opinion, this happened because Cooper had to draw so many storylines together to conclude in a logical way, and felt that she had to introduce a new stage for her players to act on: the Lost City. Unlike the previous settings, which were solidly set in reality but gained magical underpinnings, the Lost City was too fantastical for the otherwise realistic world she had created. Yes, they explained the back story of the City and its people, and even drew in a recognizable character (Taliesin, the mythical Welsh bard) to help us, but overall it was too strange and the quests that Will and Bran had to accomplish seemed a bit daft. The final battle with the Dark though was rather well done, since each character who we had come to know plays a part in fighting for their world, and it is the humans rather than the Old Ones who become crucial to the defence. Technically, I skipped reading the first novel in the series (Over Sea, Under Stone) as I always viewed it as a prequel to the true starting events of the Dark is Rising, so I still have to go back and read that again before I'm finally done again - and so the circle continues!

The final book of the Dark is Rising Sequence. Susan Cooper wrote these adventure stories for children in the 60/70s. I was not familiar with her writing so she is a new author for me. A blend of mythology from Wales, Celtic, and Arthurian legend. ( )

I think I was expecting a bit more from the finale. not bad though. ( )

Last in the 'Dark is Rising' sequence of five books, this one is action-packed. Featuring all five of the main protagonists from the earlier books, on the final adventure of their important quest.

The writing is good, and it makes a satisfactory end to the series, drawing all the threads together and finally (since this is a book for older children/younger teens) defeating the dark forces that threaten the earth.

There are plenty of references to mythology, including those involving King Arthur, and also to earlier books and a prophecy which the children must follow. Lots of description and fast action - but not really my kind of book.

When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone;
Five will return, and one go alone.

Iron for the birthday, bronze carried long;
Wood from the burning, stone out of song;
Fire in the candle-ring, water from the thaw;
Six Signs the circle, and the grail gone before.

Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold
Played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old;
Power from the green witch, lost beneath the sea;
All shall find the light at last, silver on the tree.
On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,
Must the youngest open the oldest hills
Through the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.
There fire shall fly from the raven boy,
And the silver eyes that see the wind,
And the light shall have the harp of gold.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Though grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride.

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Y maent yr mynyddoedd yn canu,
ac y mae’r arglwyddes yn dod.
Drake is no longer in his hammock, children, nor is Arthur somewhere sleeping, and you may not lie idly expecting the second coming of anybody now, because the world is yours and it is up to you. Now especially since man has the strength to destroy the world, it is the responsibility of man to keep it alive, in all its beauty and marvelous joy.
