The Cupid Wars by Timothy Carter
Dark entities known as Suicides attack the living, causing depression in people and feeding on their negative emotions. Their enemies are the Cupids, who make people fall in love. My main character, Ricky Fallon, becomes a Cupid after his death, and learns that he’d been the victim of a Suicide during his life. He is assigned to a high school, where he must bring couples together while protecting them from Suicide attacks. I wanted to suggest a supernatural cause for mood disorders, the way I suggested in EVIL? that Fallen Angels were responsible for religious fanaticism. That way, I could turn depression into an enemy that can be fought and beaten.
This idea is BLAST-TASTIC. I love the idea that are taken over by a entities rather then just a mood disorder. If you have ever known someone who is depressed they really do become someone new. This kind of a revolutionary idea and like he said it puts it in terms of the fact that it can be beaten!
