During high summer in England, a dreadful warning disrupts Will Stanton's peaceful world—the Dark is rising in its last and greatest bid to control the world. For Will is no ordinary boy, but the last-born of the immortal Old Ones, servants of the Light dedicated to keeping the world free.
The great battle catches up Will, his ageless master Merriman, and Bran, the Welsh albino boy, whose destiny ties him to the Light. Drawn in with them are the three Drew children, who are mortal, but have their own vital part to play in the story. In a quest through time and space that touches the most ancient myths of the British Isles, these six fight fear and death in the darkly brooding Welsh mountains. And it is there that Will and Bran are taken to the haunting, timeless Lost Land, to find the crystal sword that alone can ultimately vanquish the Dark.
