Delighted to welcome Elizabeth Jade to the Children’s Cafe and Bookstore with her books and today I am featuring Akea – The Power of Destiny (Book 1 in the Akea Series)

About the book

Akea is born into a family of sled dogs and a life that follows a predictable path, but from the day she first sees the lone wolf, Kazakh, Akea knows her future lies beyond the safety of her home. Kazakh is well aware of Akea’s destiny and the pack laws he will break to help her reach it. Regardless of the challenges ahead, he must make sure this young husky will be ready, even if it means his life.

This husky, wolf story is a new addition to the great animal fiction tradition of Jack London and Erin Hunter, where the story is told through the eyes of the animals. It is a captivating coming of age story which also teaches children about friendship, overcoming obstacles, and most importantly, that there is nothing wrong in being different; In fact, differences can be a force for good. Akea – The Power of Destiny is the first in a series of chapter books for seven to eleven year-olds.

One of the recent reviews for the book on Goodreads

Wonderfully written chapter book! A coming of age story written from the dog’s point of view. Been reading it with my third graders and they’re getting into it. Really interesting about the pack rules and dynamics of a sled dog’s life. Ultimately about friendship and finding your way in the world. This is a great read and also part one of a series. Definitely worth checking out!was exceptional. I enjoyed the dialogue the wolves had with each other. The action sequences were well planned and executed. The violence was not very explicit to preserve the sensibilities of younger readers.

About Elizabeth Jade

Elizabeth Jade was born in 1998 in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, England, but moved with her family to Wellington in Somerset when she was very young. Her early schooling did not go smoothly, and as a result, she was home-schooled from the age of seven. Her parents soon learned she had a unique slant on life and quickly abandoned attempts to follow the national curriculum in favour of child-led learning.

Elizabeth stumbled into writing at the age of fourteen when she began to suffer from anxiety and depression and quickly found her story ideas pouring out faster than she could get them onto paper. It wasn’t until the age of eighteen that she realised her struggles in school had been due to Aspergers Syndrome (an autistic spectrum disorder).

As an enthusiastic animal lover, Elizabeth volunteered first at the Conquest Riding Centre for the Disabled and then at St Giles Animal Rescue before moving on to the Cats Protection Homing and Information Centre. Her gifted way with the cats quickly earned her the title of ‘Cat Whisperer’ from the staff. Since she had always possessed such a way with animals, it was only natural for her story ideas to revolve around them.

Elizabeth’s personal experience as a young author with the challenges of autism, depression and anxiety, along with her writing theme of acceptance and overcoming obstacles, have led to her having a junior school class named after her.

  1. That’s great to have a class named after you! Your books look like good reads … for kids and grown-ups alike, I would think. Best of luck with everything, Elizabeth.

  2. Wow! The younger ones knocking on the door. Great themes, i am sure children will love the animal fiction. Now its clear for me too, in the past some people used the cotton mills for producing paper instead, and this had forced so many citizens their becoming great poet:esses and writers too. Michael
