In Halfworlds, the incarnations of beasts and demons from Indonesian folklore take human form as a tribe of supernatural creatures known as the Demit. These Demit have infiltrated human society, living side by side with mortals. They look like us. They talk like us. But the only difference is, they also want to feed on us.
The Demit have gone undetected for centuries, protected by a powerful family of mortals who has enslaved them for 300 years.
As the series unfolds, the hunt for a supernatural power known only as the Gift – will bring both mortals and Demit hurtling towards their destiny.
And the only thing that could stop Armageddon is a young street artist, whose world is turned upside down when a mysterious stranger walks into her life.
This is the premise of Halfworlds: Mortals and Demit brought together in a collision of pain and destruction.
