It's 1832 and Coll Coyle has killed the wrong man. The dead man's father is an expert tracker and ruthless killer with a single-minded focus on vengeance. The hunt leads from the windswept bogs of County Donegal, across the Atlantic to the choleric work camps of the Pennsylvania railroad, where both men will find their fates in the hardship and rough country of the fledgling United States. Language and landscape combine powerfully in this tense exploration of life and death, parts of which are based on historical events.

Simon, Jane, and Barney, enlisted by their mysterious great-uncle, arrive in a small coastal town to recover a priceless golden grail stolen by the forces of evil: the Dark. They are not at first aware of the strange powers of another boy brought to help, Will Stanton, nor of the sinister significance of the Greenwitch, an image of leaves and branches that for centuries has been cast into the sea for good luck in fishing and harvest.

This series is highly underrated as a place holder between C.S. Lewis and Harry Potter, but in many ways it's every bit as good as both. Where those series rely heavily on fantasy this series uses actual history to flesh out the narrative.

Although originally aimed at young adults these books are a must read for anyone interested in Arthuriana or anyone who just enjoys well written fantasy.
