Preface by the author
The three Drew children unite with Will Stanton on a mission to save the holy grail from the powers of the Dark. Combining ancient magic with thrilling adventure, this is the third in Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising sequence.
Simon, Jane and Barney Drew are once more on holiday in Trewissick in Cornwall with their Great-Uncle Merry. Jane is allowed to witness an old local ritual, in which the women of the village create a giant figure woven of hawthorn branches as an offering for the sea goddess. This figure – the Greenwitch – is both eerie and menacing, yet Jane also senses its melancholy loneliness. She makes a wish that it might be happy – a wish that will have a fateful effect on the battle between the Old Ones and the Dark.
