Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine The first book in Cooper's highly acclaimed fantasy sequence, The Dark Is Rising, this novel sets the stage for all that follows, as the three Drew children discover an ancient map in the attic of their vacation home in Cornwall. With map in hand, the children begin their quest to find the grail and thwart the forces of evil. Alex Jennings, accomplished British stage and screen actor, is brilliant in this performance, capturing the emotions of all the children with deft inflection and pacing. He does an especially delicious job bringing to life the menace of the shadowy characters of the novel. P.B.J. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
