A Magic Mystery Adventure

WHEN THE AMULET CALLS, AND THE THIRD SUN FALLS, A HEARTBEAT STALLS.”

Keep it secret. Keep it safe. Never take it off, and NEVER GIVE IT TO ANYONE.

Desperate to raise money for her friend, who faces eviction, Bailee ignores her mother’s warnings and accidentally triggers a legendary curse.

After taking her amulet to a professor for appraisal, he’s found unconscious, and his relics — which he claimed were made by the same sisters who made Bailee’s amulet — are missing. Bailee, caught on camera arguing with him, is the prime suspect. Meanwhile, talk of robbery, witchcraft and murder drift around the seaside town, and someone or something spies on her from the shadows.

All Bailee knows for sure is legend implies that the sisters, who some say were witches, want their heirlooms back! But they surely can’t still be alive. Or can they?

Soon, Bailee is trapped in a race against time, and trying to break the curse endangering everyone around her – even if doing so puts her own life in danger.

‘When the amulet calls, and the third sun falls, a heartbeat stalls.’

For upper MG and YA readers who enjoy a combination of mystery and magic.

Set on the banks of the Langebaan Lagoon.

– The Seeing Scroll –

A magic mystery adventure

“STRAY TOO LONG WHERE YOU DON’T BELONG AND THE WORLD YOU’RE FROM COULD BE FOREVER GONE.”

The Seeing Scroll (Children's Mystery)

A week after her grandfather died, he sent her a key.

When police exhume the body in her grandfather’s coffin, 12-year-old Gia Lance already knows that it isn’t him. And given that her dad won’t believe her, what choice does she have but to enlist the help of her drama-king best friend? Their search for her grandfather leads to the discovery of a curious riddle and an enchanted scroll, which is steeped in mystery. It lures them by throwing them momentarily back in time, exposing visions — fragments of forgotten secrets.

Whose secrets are they? Why were they kept? And what does it have to do with Gia’s grandfather?

The kids soon learn that there are people hunting for the scroll. Or are they searching for her grandfather? Clearly, they’ll do anything to ensure both remain buried. Yet, the allure of the Seeing Scroll is strong, and the children decide that whatever Gia’s grandfather is involved in, is a secret too.

But is it wise to trust an enchanted parchment? Especially one that carries an ancient curse…

A page-turning fantasy adventure for kids and teens. Not too scary for grownups, either.

Set in False Bay.
