"SHOULD I READ THIS?":
This is a character-based story with a cast of primarily LGBT+ women. Expect a heavy focus on character development, how they & their relationships grow and change, with a secondary focus on entertaining superpowered fights and plots. I would compare it to the Sam Raimi trilogy of Spiderman films, with a little more philosophical drama.
For a more direct example, some arcs are road-trip arcs, where the primary plot is merely "go from one place to another, kill anyone who attacks you on the way": but what's important is what you learn about the characters on the trip, and their dialogue.
Each year is 120,000ish words / 400 pages.
During the Cold War, superpowers in the form of bacterial colonies growing on one's heart begin appearing around the world. A new class of law-enforcing "hosts" is established over the next decades, given legal immunity to deal with violent criminals however they choose.
In modern day, Mia Schultz is a young socially awkward lesbian. She's attacked by an unknown man and given the power to control a swarm of fire scarabs named Worldwide, and as she's forced to begin her new job at Urasaria Academy, she's pulled in to a mystery on Worldwide's true origins.
