Dimitri Jacobs decides to just up and leave his life in London, wanting to be as far away as possible from his so-called best friend, his ex, his family – and all their fucking secrets. Silas Okoye feels stressed, stuck, and depressed, while his mother acts like everything is perfectly fine – like she hadn’t hoisted her restaurant solely onto his shoulders without caring that he’s had to put his life on pause to take care of it.
When Dimitri ends up in Nova Falls, he just wants one moment where he can feel something real, even if that moment ends up being a one-night stand. Silas just wants to let go and forget about his stressful life for just one moment.
They both don’t expect one moment not to feel like enough.
Silas has always thought he was perfectly ordinary; most of his friends are supernatural, and he’s been perfectly fine with that. If they’re always whispering to each other the moment he leaves a room, and keeping “supernatural” secrets from him, then he’s fine with that, too.Then Silas finds out his mother has also been keeping secrets of her own, and he may not be as “ordinary” as he’d once believed. Meanwhile, Dimitri's best friend shows up to Nova Falls to let him know he may not be as ordinary as he'd desperately hoped he was.
As all the cards come tumbling down, surprisingly, within all the chaos, Dimitri and Silas feel like the only person they can truly trust is each other.
