And belatedly continuing my rereads of these books before the New Year... Greenwitch is definitely not my favourite of the books, but I rank it a bit ahead of Over Sea, Under Stone, because it's just that little bit more mature, and some of the events are so mysterious that I can't help but be intrigued. The Greenwich meridian also serves as the basis for the world’s standard time zone system. I skimmed a bit and there was very little new info that I don't have in other books.

The Grail which Simon, Jane and Barney discovered months before has been stolen. I really enjoyed revisiting this classic on audiobook, read by Alex Jennings. Listening to long sets of advice and tables read aloud, not being able to compare or properly navigate makes the audio version extremely boring at times. This is a book with magic in its pages, its phrases, its words. Not bad. I had assumed that it was a book of basics for beginners, but it gave a very vague overview of each of the essentials and then basically encouraged readers to freestyle it. Once we get to basically pages of correspondences and then pages of recipes it became uninteresting to me. This turned out to be far more interesting than I remembered. Will Stanton meets Barney, Simon, and Jane. This is another chapter in the war between the Light and the Dark, and it brings together characters established in the first 2 volumes: Simon, Barney, and Jane from the first book and Will Stanton from the second.

There are some neat little tips and recipes and it inspired me to come up with ideas for my essential oils. The Drews aren't too happy about that, but later they accept him. Granted, he's closer if you're looking at England as "the land under the rule of the Anglo-Saxons", but Cooper has touched on the legends of the land, the real stories that matter, rather than inventing a quest and a ring. I enjoyed the introduction and I think it is a very valid option to have a first look at green witchcraft. But the Greenwitch, after being thrown to the sea, makes the second manuscript its "secret." Parts of this book, especially the descriptions, are just glorious and perfect. Each book leads into the next, so they make more sense when read in proper order.

The recipes for the Herb Peasant Bread, Herbal Milk Bath, and Marshmallow Tea are at the top of my list! More aptly 3.5 stars. I know I read it when I was young, but not since. I do have two small complaints to make: 4/5 - learned a lot about all of the magick properties of plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables and everything else that has to do with nature! I loved the views of the author about the connection with the environment and nature that surrounds it. Their search for the grail sets into motion a series of distubing, sometimes dangerous events that, at their climax, bring forth a gift that, for a time at least, will keep the Dark from rising.

I've read it the way Kris says and the other way (with The Dark is Rising second) and... there are passing mentions of Over Sea, Under Stone in The Dark is Rising that make more sense if you read them in order of publication (also in order by numbering in the sequence). They are not at first aware of the strange powers of another boy brought to help, Will Stanton – nor of the sinister significance of the Greenwitch, an image of leaves and branches that for centuries has been cast into the sea for good luck in fishing and harvest. Barney is now coming into his own as an artist, and one of his drawings is to play an important part in tale. Susan Cooper is one of our foremost children’s authors; her classic five-book fantasy sequence The Dark Is Rising has sold millions of copies worldwide. This was an enjoyable informative read, or should I say listen as I listened to this book through audible. It is divided into two parts (Discovering the Green Witch and Walking the Green Path).
