The Dark Is Rising
Author: Susan Cooper
1974 Newbery Honor Book! On the Midwinter Day that is his 11th birthday, Will Stanton discovers something extraordinary -- that he is the last of the Old Ones, immortals who fight to keep the powers of evil -- the Dark -- from taking over the world!
Suddenly, Will is plunged into a quest for the six magical Signs that will one day aid the Old Ones in the final battle between the Light and the Dark. But the Dark has already sent out the Rider -- evil cloaked in black, mounted on a midnight stallion -- and has far worse in store. Will must find the six great Signs -- wood, bronze, iron, water, fire, stone -- before the Dark begins its dreadful rise. For the twelve days of Christmas, while the Dark is rising, life for Will is filled with both wonder and terror! Ages 10 and up. 296pp.
