Abilities don't come with capes—they come with targets.
Actor John Beechum hides three things to maintain his sexy brand: being bisexual, dating his male bodyguard, and having an Abnormal ability. If he's outed, his acting career is over, but when another Abnormal becomes an underground experiment, he must free them before rumors of superhuman abilities leak to the press. Now he needs his deadly ex-girlfriend's help to stop the nightmare—even if it puts his secret relationship at risk.
Licia is no heroine, and to protect others like her, she accepts her empty heart and monstrous ability. When the only man she's loved calls for aid, it's time to screw her morals and end the Abnormal testing—permanently. To keep everyone else in the guiding light, she'll descend into the murderous dark.
Except the experimentation yields an ability-nullifying drug, providing a damning power over all Abnormals. If Licia, John, and his boyfriend can't stop distribution, their kind will become resources to exploit… or prey to hunt.
But what if their cursed hidden lives are the only way to save Abnormals?
