      The Dark is Rising is the second book in the series with the same name. In this book, the struggle between the good and the bad continues with the introduction of one the main characters, the 11 year old Will Stanton.

      What I particularly like with Will is that he lives in a perfectly normal and happy


      Having 7 children isn’t that usual, but there are no abusive parents or evil siblings, which goes to prove that you can be the hero even though you have had a normal, happy childhood.

      The Dark is Rising is about how Will finds out that he is one of the Old ones, supporting the Light in ...

      • its struggle against the Dark.

        His coming of age test is to find 6 rings of power that will help the Light in the fight.

        During his search for them he travels through time and space, and meets creatures from old legends from the Thames valley.

        I found the book really exciting, you know that he’ll find

        what he seeks, but there’s new twist around every corner, unexpected allies and unexpected enemies.

        The language is good, it is not too simple so you don’t feel like you are reading a children’s book.

        I also like the poems and rhymes, it’s not too many of them but they make a nice red thread through the book.

    Does Will give up the signs to save Mary?
    John says :

    Yes, he locates the Circle of Signs, and he won the battle to save her.

    I managed to find all the books but I haven’t got around to reading all of them. So far have read the “Under the Mist…” I think after reading this review, I’ll have to hunt those books. :D
