In The Godless: Mystery of the World by Suren Fant, the main character Aren finds by accident that he can will himself to heal at an incredible rate. When driving while high results in a deadly car crash, his doctors are at a loss to explain how he is quickly perfectly healed without even a scar. Through several more incidents, Aren discovers that when he’s under the influence, he can cause supernatural happenings to occur.
At first this is almost ignore-able as the ramblings of a drugged mind, yet as the same type of occurrences happen again and again it becomes impossible not to believe them to be real. Soon we are pulled into a deeper and more fantastic dimension of the story as Aren finds himself often seeing/hearing, and soon followed by strange people with angelic names who control the same type of extraordinary powers with even more ease than himself.
Eventually Aren discovers that is amazing powers require no outside substances to occur. This is probably good as he finds himself now followed, even hunted, by beings with undeniable forces similar to his own. Beings with a disturbing amount of knowledge of what is happening that have a huge mistrust for Aren’s growing powers.
