The Dark is taking over his world and he must find six signs. His quest leads him to many adventures. He meets other Old Ones & Merriman is one. Merriman becomes his mentor & guide to the way of the Old Ones & helps in his quest. The story weaves itself through different times, ages, snowstorm and Christmas. Will's quest must be done before 12 days. The way he gets each sign is wonderful and exciting.
