In the first book of the Darkling series, The Lost Pendulum, Alice finds herself transported to the Land of the Pendulum where she encounters the most powerful magician in the Land, a man called Malory Towers. He and his sidekick, Father Malory, are searching for a young girl called Alice who has a magic card called the Lost Pendulum, which is said to grant wishes if held inside it. Alice has been captured by the Men in Black and Father Malory intends to use the power of the cards to separate Alice from her friends, rescue her, and then get her to return to the Land of the Pendulum so that he can find the lost magic card.
This is where the story starts to take an unexpected turn. It is at this point in the series where Alice starts to change. She gains telekinetic abilities, and she also begins to have visions. It is through these visions that Alice learns about the difference between good and evil, and through these experiences she decides to fight the Men in Black. However, when Alice tries to use the magic words, she realizes that all the good people she has been trying to help with her struggle are being corrupted by the same darkness that she herself has fallen in.

I would recommend the first novel, The Lost Pendulum, if you are looking for a dark and intense read about an occult mystery. The Pendulum series is much better if you don’t care so much about the supernatural. If, however, you do care and you enjoy a good mystery thriller with a touch of fantasy, then The Lost Pendulum is a great book to start with.
