I really enjoyed this. It's got some great discussions of dark vs. light, good vs. evil. The Arthurian Grail Quest overtones are present but not overstated, and I enjoyed the relationship between the three Drew children. The end is where the mythology is developed a little bit more, and I look forward to reading The Dark is Rising to see this a bit more.

Behind a wardrobe they discover a room, then an attic. There they discover a manuscript with some interesting notations. The Drew children, Barney, Simon, and Jane are well drawn and interesting, with a real (yet very proper) dynamic between them."
