Title: The Earth's Queen And The Fake God Who summoned The Zombies.
Genres: Fantasy YA, Mythology
Words: 110,000
Author: Loreto Cintolesi.

2400 year ago, a Buddha student asked his teacher what he thought about superpowers. Buddha answered: To gain super human abilities is a collateral result of meditation, and spiritual development. But the important part is growing, and many people search this path just for the powers. That's why I despise the exhibitionist and hide my own abilities. (Fragment of an old Sanskrit text this author found when learning Yoga and meditation.)

Could you write a book with that? I did. I built a fantasy world doing a crossover of Buddha's words and mythology from all the world for explaining why we believe in the strange legends our grandparents raised us. Of an alternative past where element benders -fire, water, lighting, earth and wind- walked between normal humans and the Earth's Queen ruled them all.
