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.

      • content: ianche20 - I think that this is quite an interesting book. I like the concept of ing special powers that makes the main character different. I also like how some people know about the rider and the dark. It is as if there is a never ending war that began years and years ago agains the previous light and previous dark. I really like the story and the objective in the story.
