“Nerdection Worth to Read”
The Obsidian Dragon by Angel G. T. is a Fantasy Fiction published in 2023. Aribeth Mitchell, who constantly dreams about a mysterious man, begins to seek answers when she goes on a tour to Japan together with her classmates. The journey leads her to self-discovery and opens her eyes to hidden things.
Aribeth Mitchell, a final-year Archaeology student at Cambridge University, continuously dreams about a mysterious Japanese man who could transform into a Dragon. She finds herself sitting through an archaeology lecture at her school when she suddenly falls asleep. She was, however, startled when she heard her name. Feeling embarrassed for falling asleep so soon in class, Aribeth struggles to come up with an excuse for her tiredness. Later on, after class, Aribeth and her best friend Marika take a leisurely stroll through Cambridge, discussing punting on the River Cam as well as their past lives; Aribeth talks mainly about growing up on her uncle’s farm while Marika hails from London where they met.
Aribeth mentions her recent dreams involving an unknown and seemingly real figure; these dreams seem both intriguing and puzzling to her. Marika was the only one she had told about her dreams. Marika expressed concern over Aribeth’s dreams and advised her to speak to someone about them, yet Aribeth didn’t seem troubled by them.
Aribeth kept dreaming about the mysterious man, and the more dreams she had about him, the more real the events that happened in her dreams seemed. Also, she began to feel a strange connection to the man in her dreams. Little did she know that everything was about to change. She finally gets to uncover a few things when Professor Tanaka, the Archaeology Professor of Selwyn College, decides to take his students on a tour to Japan.
Aribeth and Marika traveled with their classmates to Japan, where Aribeth experienced an unusual dream on board that left her feeling unsettled upon awakening. Once in Osaka, they visited Kyoto, where Aribeth checked into her traditional Japanese inn before visiting Nijo Castle with the professor. While exploring Nijo Castle, Aribeth experienced another unnerving incident: having visions or hallucinations of someone similar to that which she’d dreamt about, leaving her feeling unsettled until she took a short break to clear her thoughts before continuing her travels through Kyoto with the Professor. When Aribeth meets the man in her dreams physically, he introduces himself as Shinya. She began to develop feelings for him as well as a hunger for answers to the many questions she had, even when she realized that he wasn’t completely human. But one thing was clear: Shinya was there to protect Aribeth.
However, something that would completely transform Aribeth’s life is concealed behind all of these.
