SIGHED WHEN I CLOSED THE BOOK when I closed the book reading the last page What a magical journey it had been and how I enjoyed it so much I remember loving these books as a child but I had Book of Secrets forgotten how much I skipped over Re reading childhoodavorites is dangerous but in the case of the Dark Is Rising Books You Really Should you really should do itWhat I loved was the Drew children because Stone Over Sea is a wonderful book and I kept reading to get of them But everything having to do with Will Stanton was so outrageously irritating I nearly didn t Visual Group Theory MAA Classroom Resource Materials finish theifth book Silver on the Tree Good lord He magically gets all these outrageous powers with no effort then is a rarefied Old One and crucial to the survival of the worldFirst off I hate it when people get superpowers without any cost Second Will is boring He just is He doesn t have to Psych Ward Nightmare fightor anything Third his powers are awfully convenient or inconvenient and that s just annoying Every E Nesbit book is infinitely careful about powers and rules and costs than these booksSilver On the Tree was the worst offender Bennion on Statutory Interpretation followed closely by The Dark Is Risingor being Would You Like to Play With My Cock? full of convoluted and nonsensical challenges and mysterious labyrinths of guesswork Aboutifty pages of Silver on the Tree the part in the Lost Lands could have been cut out with no discernible loss I went back to read these because of my own writing in YA and I did learn a lot but I never expected so much of it to be what not to do I learned a tremendous amount about writing terror in children Stone Over Sea is completely terrifying Barney and Jane and Simon constantly in situations Consent far beyond their understanding or capabilities But that is nearly always human danger dangerrom recognizable human sources even when those are driven by the Dark When the danger is oversized and silly it s impossible to grasp like the absurd Tethys and the bellowing Greenwitch who just become bizarre and almost laughable in Greenwitch after a very promising beginning with an extremely Island Life: Inspirational Interiors. frighteningigure made of branches and leaves Whereas by Shorter Poems far the most terrifying thing to me in the whole series was thearmer who shot Bran s beautiful dog I m still in shock rom that So when I write YA with supernatural elements I want to be sure to keep My Evil And My Danger Located Firmly In The Human evil and my danger located irmly in the human supernatural is always a metaphor somehow isn t it The supernatural Dark should stand The Tragic Life of Lady Tina DeSilva Tales From Verania for the darkness within us not the other way around an excellentinale or a smashing series I particularly appreciated how the chapters alternated between magical duo Will Bran and the resolutely normal Drew children showing their differing reactions to the Rising everything comes together nicely in the end special shout. Riman and Bran the Welsh boy whose destiny ties him to the Light Drawn in with them are the three Drew children who are mortal but have their own vital part in the story These six ight ear and death
