See These Bones
by Chris Tullbane
In the post-Break world of superpowers, necromancy is the one gift nobody wants. Everyone knows what happens to Crows; they go mad and they go bad. That’s the story of infamous mass murderers like Crimson Death and Sally Cemetery. It’s also the story of David Jameson, an otherwise unremarkable man who came home one day and killed his wife, orphaning their five-year-old son, Damian.
Thirteen years later, Damian has learned that he too is a Crow, doomed to become a killer unless he can avoid the violent madness endemic to his powers. When a Finder offers enrollment at Los Angeles’ Academy of Heroes, he jumps at the chance, believing training could be the key to changing his fate.
His classmates despise him and his teachers want him expelled, but Damian isn’t the kind to give up. He’s going to take control of his destiny or die in the process.
It’s that or end up like his father.
