The fifth and final novel in Susan Cooper’s Dark Is Rising sequence.
The six servants of the Light – the Drew children, Will, Bran and the mysterious Merriman – have reached their last, desperate fight against the forces of the Dark. They face one final, daunting task: to find the crystal sword. Their search will lead them from their own world to the haunting, magical Lost Land between sea and shore, and they will each stare death in the face before the battle’s final moments.
