The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper. The book The Dark is Rising is about a boy called Will Stanton, who wakes up on the day on his birthday, and finds out that he is immortal. He finds out that he is the last of the old ones. Magical men and woman. Will is plunged on a quest to find the six signs of light, iron, wood, fire, water, bronze, and stone. The main characters in this book are Will Stanton, Merriman Lyon, Walker, and the Black Rider. This book is fantasy, so it is really interesting to me because anything can happen in this book. If you like reading the books The Boggarts, Matthews Dragon or Sea Change by Susan Cooper. Than you should like the book, The Dark is Rising. Once I started reading this book I felt like I was a character in the book. This book is great for people in the world, but is even better between you and me. By AJ Sanchez.
