    On holiday in Cornwall, the three children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that: it is the key to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching for it themselves, the Drews put their lives in peril.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "A short but excellent tale."
    "Great start to a favorite series"
    Overall

    The "Dark is Rising" series is a favorite of mine -- so I was excited when my 7-year old was ready to make it his next chapter book for us to read/listen to (we often combine reading aloud ourselves, and listening). This is an excellent narration of this favorite. Jennings is clear and compelling, his character voices are fine, and the pace is brisk and exciting.

    One of the things I love best about the book is that the way Cooper captures that sense of wonder and play kid's have -- the ordinary can seem magical, and the magical can still fit into their world.

    My seven-year-old gobbled this up in a couple of lengthy listening sessions. Well worth the download.
