Overview

Silver on the Tree (The Dark Is Rising Sequence Series #5) by Susan Cooper, Alex Jennings

The Dark is rising in its last and greatest bid to control the world. And Will Stanton -- last-born of the immortal Old Ones, dedicated to keeping the world free -- must join forces with this ageless master Merriman 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 fight fear and death in the darkly brooding Welsh hills, in a quest through time and space that touches the most ancient myths of the British Isles, and that brings Susan Cooper's masterful sequence of novels to a satysfying close.

Worth every penny, worth every second. This book is really awesome, striking and original. If you miss out on this series, you will never know the wonders you've left undiscovered.

This is the best conclusion to one of the best series there ever was. It is creative and unique, and displays good and evil in a most enticing way. Silver on the tree draws the charecters form the previous four books (Simon, Jane, and Barney Drew, Will Stanton, and Bran Davies) together. It's terrific, a must read.

To gather the circle, what was lost must be reclaimed. The Dark is rising in their last bid to claim the world of men. Only the power of the Old Ones can stand against them, but the circle remains incomplete. The Lady is absent. And so once more Will Stanton must embark on a quest; first to find the Lady, and then, with her guidance, seek out the last thing of power, the crystal sword. Joining him on his quest are his master Merriman, the three Drews, and Bran, heir to an ancient legacy. Together they will travel through history, to lost lands and ancient battles, all in preparation for the final battle to cast out the Dark for all time. An uninspired opening sets a poor example for the first quarter of the book, plodding through scenes before eventually rallying around a problem. Regrettably the story flounders again, forcing characters who just met into open animosity for the sake of tension and conflict. The underlying ideas are interesting, but without the proper time to earn them. The second quarter brings another change, as the story blossoming into a rich narrative to rival anything that’s come before. Beautiful descriptions linger on otherworldly images, while the characters struggle with ideas that both echo and challenge long held beliefs. The final turn brings a slight dip, but in its final moments the story acquits itself well, lingering on the bittersweet reality that all things pass in time, with only dreams to remind us. +Strong Ideas +Strong Descriptions *A blend of young and mature -Weak Beginning -Fragmented, rushed plot 3/5

its just the best book in the whole series. the end was also very sad but yet it was happy at the same. I just love that this book makes you think, it makes you really think if going back in time is possible. it even makes hyou wonder if there is a light and darkness in people. If light is a very powerful force while the darkness tries to bring everyone down in the slyness of ways. and when you think about it, it is really true.
