The Book of No Return falls in the hands of the people of Eryme to test the strength of their souls, and few are truly able to resist temptation.

 Novela corta Silvia Pato

Under the fire of a dragon, a woman learns that the world she lives in is just a shadow of the one she used to know. A young man spends his days treasuring a turbulent secret while hiding behind all the books he has learnt just too well. A man who knows that neither time nor strength will prevent him from obtaining absolute power. In a time when magic can mess the past with the present, the search for the heart of Nyur will bring them together in this modern fantasy short story where no one is who they seem to be. 

 The Nine Gems Silvia Pato

With a clear environmentalist inclination and trying to avoid the genre’s stereotypes, The Nine Gems travels through a world of fantasy where a young man, chosen by the gods, must embark on an incredible adventure that will take him through remote villages, thick forests, dangerous deserts, and gloomy places. From the remote island of Argea, Argar, the heir of the Astreos, will embark on a long journey through the Empire of the Seven Worlds in search for the nine sacred gems that will prevent the destruction of nature as we know it. In the island of Neso, Enroc, a clumsy magician who will give Argar access to the knowledge he had been kept from, will join him on his adventure; and, in the vast area of the Great Continent, they will meet Saskia, an aloof sarcastic mercenary who will drive them to the very doors of the Éboro. Argar will grow and evolve through this journey that will take him back home, where he will have to face the truth about his past, his present and his future.
