Greenwitch is my next book in The Dark Is Rising sequence, by Susan Cooper. It was a fast read, and an engaging one – so it only took a matter of a day or two.
Greenwitch is a wonderful fantasy that makes you want to go traveling through Cornwall. This book combines the Drew siblings from Over Sea, Under Stone with Will Stanton from The Dark Is Rising, throws them together, and pits them against the forces of evil in a search for whoever it was who stole the Holy Grail from the museum the Drews left it in. Aided – and haunted – by the Greenwitch, a traditional offering to the sea made of hawthorn branches, the group fights off a shadowy painter and races to get the decoding manuscript that will tell them the secrets written on the grail.
I give it a 5/5, and move on to The Grey King. ♦
