On the Midwinter Day that is his eleventh birthday, Will Stanton discovers a special gift-- that he is the last of the Old Ones, immortals dedicated to keeping the world from domination by the forces of evil, the Dark. At once, he is plunged into a quest for the six magical Signs that will one day aid the Old Ones in the final battle between the Dark and the Light. And for the twelve days of Christmas, while the Dark is rising, life for Will is full of wonder, terror, and delight.
Beautifully written children's story that encompasses magic and heroics, good vs bad, and the process of growing up and learning how to make hard choices. Will become an instant classic for the family- parents and kids both.
It is a good story but the author does not explain the scenes very well
It takes her like 8 pages to describe something way to long too!!!! I got sooooo bored!!!! I will never read any of the others!!! I only
read it for School!!! Bad book I do not recommend it.
