A Mortal Song

Megan Crewe

Another World Press, Ages 12+

With A Mortal Song, author Megan Crewe poses the question: what would happen if a heroine with magical powers, prophesied to save the world, turned out to be a regular old human with no special abilities instead?

This is the situation faced by Sora, whose life is turned upside down when she finds out that, despite being raised and trained as a kami – a powerful Japanese spirit-being with a strong connection to nature – she is human, not the real daughter of the parents who raised her, nor the would-be hero of her people. When her home on Mount Fuji is seized by a demon, Sora is duty-bound to the friends and family she grew up with to join her love interest and lifelong friend, Takeo, in his quest to find the real kami, train her, and help her achieve her destiny as saviour.
