Holding out for a Hero by T. E Kessler

Louise front cover Final (3)

We humans have always outnumbered Jelvias—that was until falling birth rates became a reality.

And now the Jelvia: bigger, stronger, disease and injury resistant—and venomous—looks set to topple us from world domination.

Some say it’s too late to acknowledge the invisible technology that distorts the truth about the Jelvian timeline. And others live in oblivion knowing—or not wanting to know—that there is no scientific proof sustaining that Jelvias evolved alongside us on our planet; they don’t question why there is no photography, ancient books, or old Jelvian fossils, or even why they aren’t any old Jelvias.

They definitely don’t recognise the danger we are in.

And journalist, Macy Shaw, is one of those people.

When she was twelve years old, her mother was murdered, and subconsciously ever since, Macy’s been searching for a hero. But the hero she found was a Jelvia. Undeterred, she used her connections to go after the biggest story of her life.

Narcifer saved a woman by merely being a Jelvia—his presence causing terror and making the assailants flee. And it amused him when his “heroism” created a national stir, so when a pretty little red-head asked to interview him for a story, Narcifer felt compelled to grant it to her, especially when she gave all the signals that she wanted more than a story.

However, on the night Narcifer inadvertently became a hero, he had been tracking a scientist with orders to kill, and strangely no matter where Narcifer’s line of investigation took him, his search always brought him back to the red-headed journalist, Macy Shaw.

This book is the first in the JELVIA: NOT HUMAN series.
Each book will slowly reveal the true identity of the Jelvia.

JELVIA: NOT HUMAN books can be read as a standalone novel, although you’ll gain a better understanding of the Jelvian world by reading in order.

Based on the story Eden by Louise Wise.


This book is amazing, fantastic and had me gripped right from the beginning
Jelvia’s are a part human species who live amongst people but people are afraid of them, a media campaign supported by the government has made people think that they are killer monsters who don’t deserve to be around humans. It made me instantly think of history and how people who are different have been persecuted and judged throughout history, even without first understanding them or who they are 
Macy however doesn’t believe the propaganda and thinks that the Jelvia’s are misunderstood and she wants to show the world that there isn’t anything to be scared of. When she meets Narcifer her beliefs are solidified and she finds herself falling for him
Narcifer is harder to get to know but he is determined and strong and he would do anything to protect Macy. He wasn’t supposed to fall for her but he couldn’t stop himself, she was perfect
Macy and Narcifer shouldn’t work but they are unable to keep apart and their bond is what pulled me in but the twists and turns kept me hooked! I have already had a look to see if I can get the next one so i can binge read the weekend away! 
I would recommend this book to so many people but especially those who enjoy an unconventional but hot and sexy romance with twists and turns that will keep you on your toes
