Three children, all from different backgrounds find themselves drawn to the woods that surround their homes and all see different things at different times but with good reasons. This is what the Green King wants.
In the wood there are actually three woods (bear with me), the ordinary kind of Wood, then The Bright Wood and finally The Dark Wood. There has been a battle going on with the Dark and the Bright Woods for centuries and now something is 'growing' in sentience in the Dark Wood and is leaking out into our world.
The children are all given different tasks by the Green King and The Lady and they must face peril and possible death to stop this 'darkness' from leaching out into our world and time. I see this partly as a metaphor for pollution but that's just my humble opinion.
The story actually revolves around the Porter family who have lived in the area for centuries and one of the childrens ancestors who tried to become immortal, committed many murders and infamies and it is he that has brought about the darkness.
This is quite a frightening book in some ways but also oddly satisfying..........I say this being a Pagan myself and knowing that there are worlds within worlds within worlds.
A different sort of read but for those of you who like this genre, give it a go, you have nothing to lose.
