Mystery meets history in Libertalia: Lost Fortunes, Melina Lewis’ new YA fiction novel aimed at 11-15 year olds. Lobengula - the last ruling King of the Matabele - was fabled to have hidden an immense treasure of diamonds, gold and ivory, which was never found by the invading colonialists.

But it is her intrigue with the arrival of mysterious, William, a new grade 12, which sees her unwittingly drawn into a plot. Isla Hepworth smart and sporty, with exacting standards is utterly taken with Mzi Khumalo Dayeton’s dream head boy who also happens to be a direct descendent of the great Matabele tribe of Zimbabwe. What appears to be a normal high school year reveals a cunning plan devised by William’s father, Edward English, whose ultimate goal is to settle this ancient debt, as final payment for the Matabele and British betrayal.
His plan: to recreate the free town of Libertalia and restore it to its former glory. From the inside of a smoke-filled sangoma hut, Karabo finds herself drawn into a plot that sees William and Mzi’s families pitted against each other. As she grapples with her new gift, Karabo discovers she is the only one who can connect to the spirit world, to uncover the key to the missing treasure. As Karabo and Isla navigate their way through school terms, holidays, exams and the end-of-year matric dance, ancient mysteries emerge and their friendship becomes more important than ever.

You’re going to be asked many questions about whether ‘this’ or ‘that’ is true or not. It’s time to turn off the screens and introduce your teens to intrigue and adventure... We believe they’ll thank you for it!
