Holding out for a Hero

Jelvia: Not Human book 1

While the memories of those living on Earth reform, an alien species embeds into our world.

And like most people, Macy is oblivious to the invasion of Jelvias.

She thinks their species is oppressed by Human society and wants to use her journalistic prowess to inform the world.

In a chance encounter, she meets an enigmatic Jelvia called Narcifer, who is as charming as good-looking. Her boss, impressed by Macy’s lack of fear, sets her on a mission for the ‘scoop of the century’. Enthralled by this opportunity, Macy wonders how she’ll ever meet Narcifer again until he shows up to save her life.

Love- and career- struck, she doesn’t realise she’s being played until she’s head over heels in love with Narcifer.

The Jelvia: Not Human series spans one year in the lifetime of Macy Shaw until her memory returns, and the truth, emerges.

Holding out for a Hero is the only book in the series that can be read as a standalone.

(book cover in progress)

Li Jing (Phil) Zmin had always felt different from others, especially when she could see the truth while others couldn’t. So on a mission to ‘wake’ the world, she pulled together a team of like-minded people and began the Wake Up Movement. But the movement attracted people who hated Jelvias, and in the eyes of the world, her group became an extremist organisation.

Li Jing began to run out of ideas and passion.

Then an injured Jelvia sought solace in her garage. While he lays unconscious, Li Jing chains him up.

She plans to ‘wake’ him up instead.
