Sequel to Discovery of Witches. Total escape books. What makes this series interesting is the knowledge Harkness brings with her history of science background. "Hooray! To an academic who can make some money", says the wife of a humanities prof.

Giving it 4 stars, but more of a 3.5 or 3.75. The ending was uneven and disjointed. Felt like the author wasn't sure how to finish the story.

Susan Cooper
“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.”
Susan Cooper, The Dark is Rising Sequence
