A Dyslexia Friendly title.
O has two tasks tonight. The first is to break into the Bank of England. Easy. Well, easy compared to the second - to challenge the shadowy presences who rule the world.
A clever sci-fi novel with a twist from The Black Tattoo author Sam Enthoven.
Praise for The Black Tattoo:
'[Enthoven is] clearly loving telling this story - there are some pleasing twists - and his energy creeps into the words on every page.' - Philip Ardagh in The Guardian
'For his first time out, Enthoven has crafted a fast-paced page turner that reads very much like watching a movie. The balance of fantasy/horror/action is just right. Think The Golden Compass meets The Matrix. An odd combination, no doubt, but Enthoven makes it believable and likable.' Teenreads.com

His follow- up to The Black Tattoo (but not a sequel), Tim, Defender of the Earth is, as he modestly puts it, Phase Two of my sinister masterplan to conquer the universe! He is committed to writing books that make young people want to read. He lives in Hackney, London.More About Sam Enthoven
