Nicholas Keller emerges out of the devastation as a shining light of hope for all. But his newfound fame comes with a price that his aunt will not let him pay. They flee into the shadows in order to protect his secret. However, as Nicholas begins his sophomore year at his fifth school in five years, strange and unexpected things begin to happen. He soon tumbles into a web of doomed love, extraordinary talents and a secret past, which threatens the lives of everyone he cares about. It’s up to Nicholas to confront the truth, even if it means his own death.
FEAR, book 3 in THE HERO CHRONICLES series, is now available on Amazon!
“A fantastic take on the “young man coming of age” genre, with hidden enemies, undiscovered power and secret histories, mixed into a spicy stew. I ended up reading all four volumes (and wishing the author was done with the fifth) over two days. In this case, the young man is one of a hereditary group, perhaps a sort of an illuminated Illuminati group.In this first book, the protagonist tries to uncover the spread and the purpose of the group. Very interesting and original idea, and Mettey develops the views of this secret society slowly as the story develops. The only thing I found disconcerting was the use of Cincinnati landmarks, relocated into Illinois. Mettey himself, works in Cincinnati, running the Matthew 25 Ministries voluntary charitable organization that moves materials into disaster areas, low income neighborhoods and schools.” by Michael Wood
“This book shows the hero in all of us. We aren’t all a part of some secret group, but we all possess the power too do what’s right and sacrifice ourselves for others.” by Amazon Customer
“I like to read books so I can be assured if they are appropriate for my teenaged granddaughters. This one has a thumbs up! Depending on the maturity of a teen, I’d say 11 years old and up.” by B Henderson
