Older Readers


Sally Gardner’s books for young adults (and adults of all ages) are beginning to form a genre of their very own – original, magical, historical realism. All told with theatrical flair and invention, her novels present unforgettable characters and mind-boggling ideas written in stunning prose; taking you to worlds you could never imagine. Sally is passionate that young adults not be patronised by what they read, but challenged and inspired.


Sally will be a leading author for Orion’s new Indigo imprint, and The Double Shadow marks the launch of this exciting new venture:


The Orion Publishing Group is delighted to share the exciting news of the launch of INDIGO, the new imprint that will publish a wide variety of genres for teens and young adults by established authors and rising stars.  INDIGO will publish fiction for older teen readers, focussing on the strengths of the publishing that currently sit on the popular and successful Gollancz and Orion Children’s Books imprints.”
