The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

I loved these books when I was about 12-14 because Cooper takes a standard fantasy theme of good versus evil, but explores it through evocations of British folklore and descriptions of the landscapes around Cornwall, Snowdonia, and the Chilterns, which makes the magic of the adventures feel as if it really could exist.
