On his eleventh birthday, Will Santon makes the startling discovery that he is the last of the Old Ones, immortals dedicated throughout the ages to fight the Dark, the force of evil, which is threatening to dominate the world.  During the twelve days of Midwinter, 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 Dark and Light.  In this superb dramatic fantasy, the reader, along with the main character, moves from the warm happy village life into overwhelming danger, often in other centuries and places.
