Waterstones Says

Pitching its eleven-year old protagonist into a sinister world of twisted folklore and mythic evil, The Dark is Rising is a transfixing experience and one of the building blocks of Young Adult fiction.  

This night will be bad and tomorrow will be beyond imagining.

It's Midwinter's Eve, the day before Will's eleventh birthday. But there is an atmosphere of fear in the familiar countryside around him. This will be a birthday like no other. Will discovers that he has the power of the Old Ones, and that he must embark on a quest to vanquish the terrifyingly evil magic of the Dark.

The second novel in Susan Cooper's highly acclaimed Dark is Rising sequence.
