Okay the first thing to keep in mind is that Susan Cooper wrote these books long before JK Rowling was writing so if you see the parallels of an English boy who discovers he has magical powers on his eleventh birthdaywell you just have to suck it up and admit that Cooper did it first These are AMAZING books I was trying to think of which one I liked best but they're all so good Much darker than most children's fantasy Very scary When I was 10 I didn't sleep for days after reading The Dark Is Rising Also you can read the first two books out of order most people seem to read The Dark Is Rising before they read Over Sea Under Stone They will feel like they were written by two different people because Over Sea Under Stone is like a lighthearted children's adventure story and The Dark Is Rising is much well DARK Also the stories are very much tied to the legend of King Arthur if that is what floats your boat Won't say any you just have to read it yourself

This is probably my favourite series of books of all timeOver Sea Under Stone is aimed at the youngest audience of the five books but it's still readable and the prose is lovely The characters are instantly recognisable as children rather than the mini adults some writers make children and they're easy to identify with If nothing else you have to be charmed by Barney There's real suspense in this book if your heart isn't in your mouth while Barney and Simon are crawling through the tunnel you have no soul More detailed review here Dark Is Rising the second book seems to be for a bit older audience It constantly amazes me how well even minor characters like Paul Stanton are developed Will Stanton is both human and alien as he should be His coming of age rings very true one moment he's accepting his power but the next he's still a young boy setting fire to things I have a detailed review here is the shortest book It's the one I think of as focusing on Jane I got to care about her in this one Again the characters are amazingly believable and there's real tension and suspense Longer review here Grey King is lovely It introduces the final member of the Six Bran Davies It's also set in Wales which naturally endears it to me The characters in this book are all believable and spectacular And the very end where Owen and Bran stand together brings a lump to my throat every time Proper review here On The Tree is the final book Everything comes together here More tension glorious characters and a wonderful ending that kinda makes me want to kill Susan Cooper for what she's done to some of my favourite characters Full review here background mythology is extremely interesting and drawn from all parts of the UK The movie stripped all of this away among other things so I boycotted itSorry my html wasn't working; the links would've looked elegant
