[via press release from ABC]

BASED ON THE HIT ABC TELEVISION SERIES "REVENGE," AN ORIGINAL NOVEL, SCHOOLED IN REVENGE, WILL BE AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK AND DIGITALLY AUGUST 20

Written By Jesse Lasky, the Novel Introduces a Striking New Cast of Characters, Revealing the Secrets Behind the Rigorous Training Program That Produced ABC's "Revenge" Heroine, Emily Thorne

ABC's hit TV series, "Revenge," introduced Emily Thorne (portrayed by Emily VanCamp) and her complex mission. The show's storyline has hinted at Emily's covert training on remote Rebun Island with master Takeda. Now, from a member of the show's team, comes Schooled in Revenge (Hyperion Trade Paperback and eBook | August 20, 2013 | $14.99), the first full-length original novel that immerses readers into that training, as a new vengeance-thirsty heroine seeks out Takeda's guidance to learn how to right terrible wrongs.

Meet Ava Winters, young, beautiful and the heiress to Napa's prized Starling Vineyards. Ava is also in love with the perfect guy -- at least that's what she thinks until he helps take away everything that was once hers. With no place to turn, Ava goes to Rebun Island, where she trains to be mentally and physically strong enough to take revenge. On the island, Ava meets Emily Thorne, who has recently returned; Emily shares her wisdom with Ava about the importance of seeking justice in a world where enemies thrive.

Four others are on the island for training. They all soon discover that their missions are intertwined. All roads lead back to Starling Vineyards, and the ideal time to strike is the annual gala. But to get there on time, they must leave before their training is complete. Are they ready? Will they succeed? Will they even survive?

Editor's Note: "Revenge: The Complete Second Season" on DVD, with an exclusive "Schooled in Revenge" trailer featuring the novel's cast of characters, is on sale August 20. Season 3 of "Revenge" premieres Sunday, September 29 at 9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.

Schooled in Revenge

A fast-paced tale loaded with background secrets that fans of "Revenge" won't want to miss. The novel is on sale simultaneously with the DVD release of "Revenge: The Complete Second Season," which includes an exclusive 2-minute live action trailer for the novel. Author Jesse Lasky has been a key member of the show's writing team since the show's beginning; his enthusiasm for the program's detailed back story provided the inspiration for this "spin-off" adventure tale.

"Revenge"

Emily Thorne is anything but what she seems. By appearances, she's a friendly and sophisticated "girl next door," but the exclusive world she's immersed herself in is tied to a dark family history. Emily's father was framed for a horrific crime by neighbors he trusted, and was sentenced to a life in prison; Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal. Years later, Emily returned to the Hamptons under an assumed identity with one endgame � REVENGE � every social overture is a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies until their lives come crashing down around them. Now she must face the consequences of her actions and the havoc she has wreaked on those around her while she continues her fight to avenge her father's death.

"Revenge" stars Emily VanCamp ("Brothers & Sisters," "Everwood") as Emily Thorne, Madeleine Stowe ("We Were Soldiers," "The Last of the Mohicans") as Victoria Grayson, Henry Czerny ("Mission: Impossible," "Clear and Present Danger") as Conrad Grayson, Josh Bowman ("Prowl") as Daniel Grayson, Nick Wechsler ("Roswell") as Jack Porter, Gabriel Mann ("The Bourne Identity") as Nolan Ross, Christa B. Allen ("13 Going on 30") as Charlotte Grayson, and Barry Sloane as Aiden Mathis.

"Revenge" is executive-produced by Sunil Nayar ("Body of Proof," "CSI: Miami"), as well as executive producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfry ("Twilight"). Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts ("Off the Map," "GCB") also serve as executive producers. The series, created by Mike Kelley, is produced by ABC Studios.
