The Never Hero

Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs


What if when you died, no one would ever know you were all that stood between man and the enemy?

When Jonathan Tibbs awakes in a puddle of his own blood, there isn’t a scratch on him to explain it.  In the weeks to follow, he comes to find he’s been drafted for a war with a violent otherworldly species. A war that only he can remember. Now, the man Jonathan imagined himself becoming is no longer the man who can endure his future.

The first installment in this science fiction action adventure series, The Never Hero is a gritty and honest look at the psychological journey of a man forced to forge himself into a weapon. Abandoned with little guidance, and at the mercy of a bargain struck far outside his reach, Jonathan races to unlock the means to surmount the odds, and understand the mystery behind a conflict raging outside of time and memory.

In the end, the real question is what Jonathan is willing to become to save a planet that will never see his sacrifice.

The Never Hero, at its core, is the story of Jonathan Tibbs.  A young man forced into a situation he can’t control and a responsibility he can’t relinquish. A story about not liking the thing you have to be, but committing to what the world needs you to be. About taking action when right and wrong refuse to give you bearings. This is a story, about letting go of your story.


Favorite Reviewer Quotes To-Date (from Goodreads):

“The Never Hero is a book that will refuse to let you go; the deeper you enter Jonathon’s world, the more you come to care for him, and just when you’re at the edge of your seat with concern, then come the revelations. They’re big, but beautifully set up, and the action-based premise is in fact a framework for posing much deeper questions about honour, duty and the identity of modern masculinity. Needless to say I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who loves heroic stories that leave a residue of contemplation, long after they’re over.”

“I was immediately pulled into this fascinating tale of a young man who is brutally transformed into something that at times controls what he is and what his role in the world has become. Just when you think you understand his relationships, the good guys the bad guys, suddenly they aren’t necessarily who you think they are.
This is a gripping read. Write faster T.Ellery Hodges. I’m ready for volume II.”

“Not only is it funny and entertaining and the dialog completely relatable but it’s SO insightful. Multiple times while reading this I found these unexpected, “Innnnnnteresting, I never thought of that” moments that genuinely shocked me, especially in the casual manner they were incorporated into the story.

“The story was unique. I’ve read a lot of fantasy and science fiction. Most of us have read about aliens, superpowers, monster or time travel, but I’ve never seen them brought together in the manner that they are here. I no longer wanted to turn pages, I NEEDED to turn pages to see how everything would unfold.”
