Product Description


Psychology Today"Susan Cooper is one of the few contemporary writers who has the vivid imagination, the narrativepowers, and the moral vision that permit her to create the kind of sweeping conflict between good andevil that lies at the heart of all great fantasy. Tolkien had it. So did C.S. Lewis. And Cooperwrites in the same tradition."

Book Description

The fifth and final spellbinding book in the classic The Dark is Rising sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great end to the sequence 23 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Silver on the Tree is the climax of the sequence, when all the characters join together to fight the Dark for the last time. This is absolutely unmissable, but you have to read the other four first (that might sound daunting, but you'll skate through them). This is Susan Cooper at her best, gripping the reader and drawing them into the strange, dark world she has created. Anyone who likes Gothic fantasy, adventure on a large scale, plenty of believable characters and a whopping big race against time should read this.

Great final to all these books in the series. Read the 1st 4 as a teenager and recently reread them after finding them in the attic in my mothers house. Was delighted to discover there was a 5th book I did not know about. Particularly liked all the Welsh references being from Wales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 27 Dec 2013

I adore the whole series and have ever since I was a child. Before Potter and Pullman there was the world of The Dark and The Light, bound up with Athurian Legends and the history of these Isles. Truely magical for all ages with a strong moral lesson that under pins the narrative in such a way that it is entirely natural. As relevant today as when it was written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful escapism 21 Dec 2013

A book (and series) that works on more than one level and encourages suspension of disbelief. I loved it! A shame the series wasn't longer. It was especially interesting the way several strands from earlier books came together.
