Nothing remarkable ever happens in Riverside. Alayna West is proof of it. The teen has spent her life going through mundane tasks without anything out of the ordinary happening. Now, the rising senior prepares for her last year of high school with her same friends, in their same routines. Alayna doesn't know it, but everything she thought she knew is about to turn on its head, casting her well ordered life into disarray.
Dru Sanjay faces an internal dilemma of his own. Forced to move, again, with his parents, he is pushed to the edge as they settle down in quiet Riverside. Railing at being trapped in the middle of nowhere, Dru is ready to break. He knows what awaits him, and it is nothing he is going to find in the Ozark Mountains.
A strange twist of fate brings Alayna and Dru together. Instantly attracted to one another, Dru feels like he has known her all his life. Alayna rushes in, thinking he might be the one. Their relationship blossoms, and one quiet night they are attacked by a monster. Dru uses his powers to save her and she plunges headfirst into an impossible world.

Deciding that her best chance for survival is by sticking close to Dru, she embarks upon a quest that will change her life forever and, if she isn't careful, alter the course of the future for the entire planet. Trapped between survival and love, her ordinary life just became a lot harder.
Nothing remarkable ever happens in Riverside, until it does.
