Secrets: The Hero Chronicles (Volume 1)

Book 1, The Hero Chronicles

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


--This book was written for junior high/high school age readers as well as all who are young at heart--The Midwest lies in complete ruins after a catastrophic disaster kills tens of thousands and leaves hundreds of thousands injured. 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.

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.

Stay tuned for the release of “Elle and The Escape,” a spin-off from the popular “The Hero Chronicles” series by Tim Mettey in Fall 2016!

Engaging Read

Tim Mettey skillfully weaves his tale with suspense and good descriptive passages. Great cover art too. I look forward to the continued adventures of Nicholas, Elle, and Cora, as I would imagine young folks will as well.


I absolutely loved this book! It kept me wanting to read I couldn't put it down! I was disappointed when I found out the second one hadn't come out yet. I will be looking forward to reading it!

Secrets: The Hero Chronicals

This book is so well written that it holds your attention from the very beginning. I can't wait to read more books from this author! I was able to visualize the scenes in every detail as I was reading. I am mostly short on time and usually make time for recreational reading while on vacation. But this book was the exception! I read at every doctors appt., while waiting for Bible study to start, just every free moment I had.
Putting it on my I-Pad made it very convenient to take along. I am 67 years old and I enjoyed it very much and I think this is also perfect reading for a teenager, too!
