I remember reading some books a long time ago, 4th or 5th grade perhaps (so this is 15-17 years ago), and I would really like to find them. Does anyone know the title? Here's what little I remember...



- I believe it was a series of books - 5 maybe?

- It took place in England

- It was about a boy (there may have been other kids)

- He somehow had to fight evil.. not sure if he had to go to another dimension to do it though

- He had to gather some medallion type things. They were circles that had a cross through them (not a Christian cross, just divied in quarters) They were made of different materials : stone, lead, fire, water, i think

- The cover of the first book had a man on horseback. The borse was on his back legs, and the boy was on the ground.



That's really all I remember... Does anyone else remember these books?



Thanks in advance!



Oh! and snow... I remember snow.

    I read the books, but I don't remember the titles, sorry.



    If they are the ones I am thinking of, they involved a lot of Celtic mythology, and the great hunt.

    You make fun, but it can be quite tricky to find these things when you don't remember the title.



    I am trying to remember the title of a movie that I really liked:



    - A beautiful blond woman wakes up in Spain with no memory

    - She has all these adventures

    - There was a pool

    - She gets raped by a taxi driver

    - I think that there was a bullfight

    - It turns out that she is a ghost

    I knew the story sounded familiar.



    What pisses me off is I googled the first one, but couldn't get the second!
