Book Review of The Dark Is Rising (Dark is Rising, Bk 2)

The Dark Is Rising (Dark is Rising, Bk 2)
reviewed on + 6 more book reviews

Cooper's young adult novels are fun, if a bit dated. A lot of it doesn't feel very exciting because the children involved are always kept extremely safe and rarely in any kind of immediate and really threatening danger - which is markedly different from today's Harry Potter or A Series of Unfortunate Events works. There are still a lot of interesting concepts and the story itself is timeless.
