Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.

“Something hissed and a wet chill wrapped around Mirabella’s wrist
and crawled toward her shoulder. She whipped around and glimpsed the
outline of someone sitting on the edge of her bed. But as she stared,
the image faded to a blur.”
When twelve-year old Mirabella and her mother move into Great Aunt
Clovinia’s old house, Mirabella discovers they aren’t the only ones
living there. A mysterious faded specter haunts the place.
When the house is scheduled for demolition, Mirabella must unravel
the mystery of the ghost’s identity, and free it from the old house
before it’s too late.
If they weren’t the only non-Norms in the entire town of Fair Glen—aside from the annoying half-Elf, Jeryd, who shows up and complicates things—Merissa might not give Bree the time of day. But when Bree is drawn into a curse that causes chaos at school and threatens the town, Merissa must find a way to vanquish the dark power behind the curse and keep her parents from finding out about it. All without failing biology.
