Publisher Comments:

There is a Welsh legend about a harp of gold, hidden within a certain hill, that will be found by a boy and a white dog with silver eyes — a dog that can see the wind. Will Stanton knew nothing of this when he came to Wales to recover from a severe illness. But when he met Bran, a strange boy who owned a white dog, he began to remember. For Will is the last-born of the Old Ones, immortals dedicated to saving the world from the forces of evil, the Dark. And it is Will's task to wake-with the golden harp — the six who must be roused from their long slumber in the Welsh hills to prepare for the last battle between the Dark and the Light.

Synopsis:

In Wales, recovering from a severe illness, Will meets Bran, a strange boy with a white dog, who invokes an old Welsh legend that foreshadows Will's role in the last battle between the Dark and the Light.

This novel incorporates Arthurian and Celtic mythology into something rich, magical, and strange. When I was twelve, this inspired me to try to teach myself Welsh, which I soon discovered was nearly impossible.
