In a captivating tale of forbidden love, resilience, and the power of self-discovery, infused with elements of magical realism and subtle LGBT+ themes, Silver Under Nightfall sweeps readers across centuries of human history.

In 18th-century China, Akiko, a young woman, makes a fateful pact with a mysterious entity known as the Tengu. In exchange for eternal life, she is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets, her name instantly vanishing from their minds the moment she turns away.

For centuries, Akiko wanders the world, a silent observer of history's grandest moments. She witnesses the rise and fall of empires, the birth of groundbreaking inventions, and the triumphs of art and literature. But despite the wonders she experiences, Akiko's immortality comes at a heavy price: she is forever alone, a ghost in her own life, unable to form lasting connections with the people around her.

In 1931 Shanghai, Akiko's solitary existence is disrupted when she encounters Keigo, a young man who, to her astonishment, remembers her name. Intrigued and hopeful, Akiko forms an unlikely bond with Keigo, experiencing the joy of companionship and love for the first time in her long life.

However, their connection comes at a dangerous cost. The Tengu, enraged by Akiko's newfound happiness, threatens to destroy everything she holds dear. Akiko must confront her past and make a difficult choice: to remain trapped in her lonely immortality or risk everything for the chance at true love and freedom.
