From the get go you know you are in good hands. Susan Cooper is a writer I haven't read in a while, her subjects are always interesting and her writing tight and poetic. This is a simple enough story, but with hints of 'magic' that half way through turn the story on its head. It's a master stroke of story telling and Cooper pulls it off brilliantly. The narrative wanters slightly at the start of the third part, but the tension builds to a satisfying climax. A modern classic I'd say.
