See These Bones

Some superheroes save the world. Damian might not even be able to save himself.
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, Gravedigger, 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. When a Finder offers enrollment at the Academy of Heroes, he jumps at the chance, hoping training might change his fate. His classmates despise him, his teachers want him expelled, and his mom’s ghost won’t say a word, but Damian is going to take control of his destiny or die trying.
It’s that or end up like his father.
