In her dreams she crosses the limits of reality, saves the world and finds love. And what if they weren’t dreams?

Vanessa, a 17-year-old girl, has the ability to travel to an alternative world called Black Onyx. She does not know that she is the only hope for the residents of both Onyx and of our world. The prophecies state that Vanessa is the chosen one to save both worlds from the enemy, Arématis. In Onyx she meets Erick, who has sworn to protect Vanessa, and who will fall deeply in love with her. How will Vanessa balance the two worlds she is a part of, her love interests and the need to defeat the fearsome Arématis?

About the author

Adriana González Márquez was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico. She wrote her first story at the age of twelve, but she thought it was so bad that she opted to destroy it. Several years later, her narrative efforts proved succesful in the publication of the trilogy The Power of the Black Onyx from which she gained countless readers who have travelled with her to a world full of fantasy, adventure and romance. Electrical storms fascinate her, she still hates getting up early and she’s not as foul-mouthed as before. She is now writing the second part of her new trilogy, The Age of the Mystics.
