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.
