Tell the truth. Or face the consequences.

Pretty Little Liars meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller.

One year ago, there was a party.

At the party, someone died.

Five teens all played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.

Instead, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge who wants to finally unravel the truth about what actually happened that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?

Or will their lies destroy them all?

This third original novel features a story not seen on the hit NETFLIX show! During the Riverdale Revels festival, Archie, Betty, Jughead and Veronica find out that the dark roots of the Town with Pep go even deeper than they could have imagined... Riverdale is clamouring with excitement over news that an old town tradition is suddenly being revived: the Riverdale Revels. The festival supposedly has a long history, dating back to the town's settlers' first successful maple tapping. But there's no record of the Revels anywhere. Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead think there must be more to the story. And when a skeleton is uncovered in a 75-year-old time capsule on the first night of the festival, they know they're right. But a dead body in a maple barrel isn't the only drama surrounding the Revels. The Royal Maple pageant (open to all Riverdale teens) is in full swing, but 'accidents' keep befalling the contestants, including the gang's friends. Someone is clearly trying to put an end to the Revels once and for all - but who? And more importantly, why? Can Archie and his friends put a stop to the sabotage before someone puts a stop to them?

Melina Lewis

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. It is against the historical backdrop of this ancient African legend that the mystery unfolds. Set in a private boarding school in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, the story is a melting pot of friendship, mystery and treasure, peppered with suspense, intrigue and African legend.

Best friends since they met at school, Karabo and Isla are grade 10 learners at Dayeton College, who are about to discover that the people they think they know, aren’t really what they seem.

Meet the cast: Karabo, focused on her academics and her hockey captain dreams is called upon by her ancestors to become a sangoma (which was not part of the plan!). 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.

Libertalia will excite teens about history and legends long forgotten - ones not taught in the classroom. So, parents, brush up on your history! 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!
