"Too many!" James shouted, and slammed the door behind him.
"What?" said Will.
"Too many kids in this family, that what. Just too many." (from the first line)
Young Will Stanton discovers that he is the last of the Old Ones, destined to triumph over the evil forces of the Dark. All five books in the Newbery Honor-winning authors Dark Is Rising sequence are collected in this boxed set.
Annotation:
Continuing the story begun in OVER SEA, UNDER STONE, THE DARK IS RISING is the second book in Susan Cooper's popular fantasy quintet. Here readers meet Will Stanton, the seventh son of a seventh son, who, on his 11th birthday, discovers that he is an Old One, a group of immortals charged with saving the world from the evil forces known as the Dark. Under the guidance of Merriman Lyon, Will prepares for his part in the battle by searching for, and bringing together, the Six Signs of the Light--magical elements needed by the Old Ones to defeat the Dark. A classic story of the battle between good and evil, THE DARK IS RISING reflects the influence of both Celtic mythology and the Arthurian legend. It was named a 1974 Newbery Honor Book. The rest of the books in the series are GREENWITCH, THE GREY KING (winner of the 1976 Newbery Medal), and SILVER ON THE TREE.
