Alan Garner's exciting and atmospheric tale of magic and evil which began with "The Weirdstone of Brisingamen" continues with the "Moon of Gomrath".
It is the
Eve of Gomrath – the night of the year when the Old Magic is aroused.
Had Colin and Susan known this, they would never have lighted a fire on
the Beacon, thereby releasing the uncontrollable ferocity of the Wild
Hunt. Soon they are inextricably caught up in the struggle between their
friend, the Wizard Cadellin, and the evil Morrigan.
The strength of their courage will determine whether or not they survive the awaiting ordeal … From Goodreads.
This is a worthy sequel to The Weirdstone of Brisingamen though it is not quite as good. As in a lot of fantasy books the evil, that is thought gone, returns. I have the third book ready.
