Book review: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe|
I've never read The Dark Is Rising, but I love the song* so much I will buy it and read it if I find it for sale.
*(I believe the poem is in the books. The words are credited to Susan Cooper. It has the chorus "When the dark is rising, six shall turn it back / Three from the circle, three from the track / Wood, bronze, iron, water, fire, stone, / Five will return and one go alone.") It was set to music by Julia Ecklar; there might be a recording on line.)
