The Dark Lady by Akala



Set in the Elizabethan Era, the story focuses on a 15 year old boy with unusual powers. The story is slow moving and descriptive meaning that the reader gets to understand life in that time. If you enjoy historical fiction or Shakespeare, I would recommend this book for you. By: Maya (age 14)

Henry is an orphan, a thief and a genius. Raised by a powerful witch, Henry is a master pickpocket and spends much of his time reading at the magical apothecary. But Henry’s extraordinary gifts haven’t gone unnoticed and when caught stealing, he’s forced to work for an influential duke and his secret society of intellectuals. Working hard to fulfil the duke’s relentless pursuit for knowledge, Henry finds solace and a friend in his idol, the young playwright, William Shakespeare. But it’s his mother Henry longs for most.
