"After my battle with the beast of the unpronounceable name, I crash landed on the walkway leading to a Welsh church. My luck was on the upturn when its priest picked me up and nursed me back to health. But now he doesn't trust me and won't let me leave. Humans- they always want something. Like the truth, for example. As if! Who does he think he's dealing with?

Want to know my history? I'm a teller of tales. Not that I'll tell you the truth. Nor is everything I say entirely a lie. Just sit back and enjoy my fantastical yarns."

An engaging adventure of desire, determination, and demonic intrigue, dragging the reader to Hell and back.

(The Pooka Tales: Speak of the Devil)

Only Human (Act One): The Pooka's Tales: Speak of the DevilEveryone loves a good story told by an accomplished storyteller, one that may trick you into believing the unbelievable and doubting the truth. Settle back and be prepared to be amused, amazed and intrigued by a very clever Pooka, repaying a priestly kindness with his tales of intrigue, love, demons, succubi and the frailties of the human condition.

Leigh Holland’s ONLY HUMAN is a quirky tale of a clever Irish fairy and the tales he weaves, his magical abilities to fool humans and his unique take on humanity and life (of which he has many).

Quick, witty and sometimes just plain charming, Ms. Holland’s writing is as if the Pooka is actually talking to us with a glint of something mysterious in his eyes. Definitely a fun read that races past in a flash, leaving us wondering about the human condition, ourselves!

I received this copy from Leigh Holland!
