[O] Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper

17 Apr

There is a strange phenomenon in our house where the first book of a series always goes missing. This is because someone will decide they want to re-read the series and pull out the first book, and then never get around to it, separating the first book from its companions forever.

Over Sea, Under Stone is one of those books. It is the first book of The Dark is Rising sequence, but honestly, I don’t remember much other than that the books were set in Cornwall.  I tried to re-read the whole sequence last year and found this:

The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper

We were missing the first two books.

Strangely, this seems to happen more to my sister’s books than to mine, as I’m much more possessive and obsessive about my books…

This is a great series to read if you haven’t yet, and I would recommend it for boys and girls ages 10 and up, especially those who like fantasy or King Arthur.

This post is my Blogging from A to Z entry for the letter O.

    I love this series. I listened to all the audiobook versions and would someday like to get a copy of the books.

      Thanks for stopping by! I remembered enjoying these books a lot when I first read them. This A to Z series is making me want to re-read so many books, but I have new ones to read already!
