Demon dads. Flaming warriors. Ghostly powers. Welcome back to Olori …

Koku Akanbi’s newfound ghostly powers have been wreaking havoc, landing him in detention and a whole heap of trouble.

Having to find a way back to Olori – his family’s homeland – is tough enough, but he is soon sent on a dangerous quest to find the three most powerful objects in the world. If that’s not enough, Koku is also faced with the biggest decision of his life.

With the fate of Olori in his hands, can Koku and his super-powered friends save the day before it’s too late?

Set in a unique magical world inspired by West African mythology, this is the second book in an unmissable new fantasy adventure series. Perfect for fans of Marvel and Percy Jackson.


Praise for Koku Akanbi and the Heart of Midnight:

‘Epic storytelling with a sharp wit. I love Koku!’ – Louie Stowell, author of Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good

‘Sharp, witty, original and thrilling’ – The Guardian

Maria Motunrayo Adebisi graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017 with a degree in English Literature, although she currently works in tech. As part of her degree she focused on post-colonial literature from Nigeria and West Africa, and on graduating she realised that she wanted to write a novel that would speak to children straddling British and African identities and make them proud of both. Maria is based in Manchester.
