Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

On his birthday Will Stanton finds himself endowed with strange powers, released from the hold of ordinary times and entrusted with a quest to unite the six Signs of Light so he can stem the rising power of the Dark. Newbery Honor book; ALA Notable Children's Book; Carnegie Medal Honor Book; Kate Greenaway Medal Honor Book; Boston Globe/Horn Book Award.

Okay, so yes, this is technically a kids' book, but so is Harry Potter. This book was awesome. Suspense, intrigue, humor, it had it all. I highly recommend it.

I loved these books as a young reader, enjoying all the time spent in a world where children were empowered, magic was afoot, and horses were the primary mode of transportation. They blended well with the Chronicles of Narnia, the Mists of Avalon, and The Tolkein novels.
