Simon, Jane and Barney Drew are on holiday in Cornwall with their parents and the slightly strange Great Uncle Merry. Exploring the house they’ve rented, they find an ancient map which seems to have connections to the old legends of King Arthur. It starts as a game, but soon they’re being hunted by people prepared to do anything to get the map for themselves.
This is the story of Over Sea Under Stone, the first book in The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper. Over five books, you learn about the Old Ones, The Dark and the battle that’s been fought between them for centuries.
The five books in order are:
- Over Sea, Under Stone
