A natural storyteller with a vision of his own. THE DARK LADY, Akala's debut novel for teens, will enthuse and entertain teenagers and young adults, showing that reading is a true super-power.

A PICKPOCKET WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL GIFT
A PRISONER OF EXTRAORDINARY VALUE
AN ORPHAN HAUNTED BY DREAMS OF THE MYSTERIOUS DARK LADY

Henry is an orphan, an outsider, a thief. He is also a fifteen-year-old invested with magical powers ...

This brilliant, at times brutal, first novel from the amazing imagination that is Akala, will glue you to your seat as you are hurled into a time when London stank and boys like Henry were forced to find their own route through the tangled streets and out the other side.
