MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Wraithborn
The Wraithborn power is normally given to a specially chosen warrior, someone who has trained for decades to wield the power and fight the Immortals. But, due to “unforeseen circumstances”, the power is passed on to an ordinary high school girl who doesn’t know anything about what’s going on, but she’s got to figure things out fast because a lot of “people” (including the Immortals) are coming after her.
The book is a supernatural, dark fantasy story inspired by folklore and mythologies from around the world. The idea being that all these legends were based on some truth, that gods and demons and angels and so forth really do exist, and once walked this earth. But one day, they all seemed to vanish, and eventually we just wrote them off as fiction. But they’re still around, and they’re trying really hard to get back and reclaim their former “lordship and dominion” over all humankind.
