The alternate or parallel start to Cooper's Dark is Rising pentology, this book establishes the series internal mythos. Technically the second book in the series, we finally get an explanation for what the Light and the Dark are.

Two fundamental and opposed forces of the universe, under the High Magic, the Light and Dark are engaged in a primeval struggle for control of humanity throughout history. While Lords of the Dark are made, not born, the primary servants of the Light are the Old Ones: Born throughout times and throughout peoples, Old Ones are immortal with various inborn powers and strengths. Loosely coupled in time, the Old Ones can travel back and forth; engaged in battle with the forces of the Dark until the blossoming of the silver on the tree. And the Old Ones have been losing, aside from the brief, shining moment when a great leader rose among men allied to the Old Ones, a man called Pendragon.

This book follows the coming-of-age of young Will Stanton, seventh son of a seventh son, in Buckinghamshire in the then-current 1960s. Will Stanton is an eleven year old boy- and the youngest of the immortal Old Ones; with his birth is the circle complete that goes all the way back to the beginning and the first Old One. His destiny is to find and assemble the six Signs, one of the Things of Power created throughout time for the Old Ones to use in their battles with the Dark. As Will himself completes the Circle, he must collect and earn the Circle of Signs, emblem and talisman of the Old Ones.

Will gains his power and the wisdom of the Old Ones in a smooth blending of traditional YA storytelling with heavy reference to British folklore- catching the references adds even more depth to the story. He is opposed at all points by the Black Rider, oldest and perhaps most powerful Lord of the Dark, who wants to break the Circle before it is complete.

A delightful story in the best British tradition of young adult/mature children's lit, with many references to British mythology scattered throughout. ( )

Better than the first novel, but hardly comparable to CS Lewis or Tolkien. A young man, Will Stanton, turns 11 to discover that he is one of the Old Ones and must play a part in stemming the rise of the Dark by uniting six Signs. At times, the wiritnig is compelling -- at other times it's downright dull. ( )

There might not be any snow on the ground yet here in Kamloops, but I knew that this was hte perfect time to re-read the Dark is Rising. It almost makes me want an insane amount of snow to match the story, but my wiser self prevails. With the Winter Darkness comes the Dark, and there's no Will Stanton around to keep humanity safe! But besides that, this book makes me nostalgic for my book-riddled childhood, where even the books on all the school lists were new and engaging and whole worlds of discovery were left to explore. Obviously I still find new and exciting books to read, but there's something about those early books that stays with me in ways that new books often just miss. It's almost too bad that the popularity of children's and young adult fantasy came to the point of making so many terrible movies in the early 2000s, because most of the excellent books (like this one) should stay simply as books!

second book in the series. This one is about Will. His birthday is the winter solstice and he has turned 11 and he finds out he is one of the old ones. A story set in the winter, winter solstice and the Christmas holiday.

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.
