Saga Amanda Black (Film/TV Series)

A Dangerous Inheritance | The Lost Amulet | The Last Minute | The Jade Bell

A teenager dedicated to maintaining the balance between the forces of good and evil.

Amanda Black is an intelligent and very brave girl whose life changes forever after the mysterious disappearance of her parents and the day she turned 13.

In A Dangerous Inheritance, Amanda receives a letter signed by her parents, after which she will receive an inheritance that will lead her to start living in the Black Mansion, a new residence full of mysteries and dangers, and that will awaken her powers. With the help of her friend Erik, Amanda will have to risk investigating and learning about her past in order to face a very uncertain future.

Amanda discovers that she was the last of a long family line dedicated to maintaining the balance between the forces of good and evil. From this moment on, she will have to adapt to a new school, to her new powers and to new extracurricular activities that consist of stealing objects dangerous to humanity.

In The Lost Amulet, Lord Thomas asks the Blacks to return a family amulet. When Aunt Paula confesses to Amanda that her great-grandmother gave the bracelet away years ago, they devise a diabolical plan to recover the jewel. Amanda and Erik will track the bracelet to a haunted mansion, while Paula embarks on a dangerous journey with Lord Thomas to prevent him from discovering the truth.

In The Last Minute, Amanda decides to attend the high school dance. However, on the morning of the dance, Aunt Paula gives Amanda a mission: to prevent an important ancient Sumerian tablet that has been missing for years from falling into the wrong hands. And Amanda, as heir to the cult of the goddess Maat, cannot allow this to happen.

In The Jade Bell, this time in Nepal, Amanda will continue to delve into her origins, and try to discover more about her mother and her greatest enemy, Irma Dagon.
