Product Description

About the Author

As the third of four children and an introvert from the start, Jason Tesar grew up as an imaginative "middle child" who enjoyed the make-believe world as much as the real one, possibly more. From adolescence to adulthood, his imagination continued to feed itself on a diet of books, movies, and art, all the while growing and maturing--waiting for its opportunity. Then, during a procession of monotonous, physically laborious day-jobs, his imagination leaped into motion, bringing together characters and locations of a world that would someday come to life on the pages of a book. In late 2008, Jason made his first attempt at writing, managing to complete a whole scene before returning once again to reality. A year and a half later, a spontaneous night-time conversation with his wife encouraged him to take his writing seriously and to keep on dreaming. Over the next seven years, Jason carved time out of the real world to live in an imaginary one of epic fantasy, science-fiction, and military/political conflict. The fruits of this labor would later become the first three books of the bestselling AWAKENED series. Due to the overwhelming support of readers around the world, Jason has continued his trajectory into make-believe, recently jumping from stable employment in the micro-electronics industry into the mysterious abyss of full-time writing. Living in Colorado with his beautiful wife and two children, Jason now spends the majority of his time fusing the best parts of his favorite genres into stories of internal struggle and triumph, friendship, betrayal, political alliances, and military conflict. If you'd like to follow along on Jason's journey or get behind the scenes info on the AWAKENED or WANDERING STARS series, you can find him on Facebook (jasontesar.com), Twitter (@jasontesar), on his blog (jasontesar.com), or send him an email at jasontesar@yahoo.com.

I am including all in this series for this review since the books have cliff hanging endings, causing you to want to read the next one, and on, and on etc.

When I downloaded "The Awakened", it was mainly because the topic sounded interesting and it was free. I was just getting ready to move to England, and I was trying to put a few books on my e-reader before I left... The Awakened was one of those books. It took me 16 months after moving before I even picked up my E-reader ( I had a catrillion real books to get me through). In March I realized there were no more books to read, so I dug out my e-reader and charged it up...

Out of the few books on my e-reader, I choose "The Awakened" to start with, and I have not put it down since. I scrambled to get the next four books and am currently on Book #4. I was hooked within the first few pages... wanting to know what will happen next. The differences between the worlds is well written and thoroughly thought through... My hats are off to Jason Tesar. His imagination is very intense, riveting, and adventurous.

I am not going to write about my thoughts on the particular story because I do not want to ruin any part of these books for anyone else. I am a woman of 58. Normally I read a lot of detective type books with an intertwining of romance on some level. I have absolutely no interest in books depicting wars and battles. I can no longer say that because the Awakened has woken me up to a whole new genre. ENJOY!

PS, As an amateur writer, I was very impressed reading Jason's story on how he wrote this book (his very first novel). it is a true inspiration to all new writers.

(Sorry I'm A Bit Late writing this review)
A fantastic follow-on from book one, I totally enjoyed reading it and I've also read the third book now. Absolutely brilliant series and for me a great introduction to reading Kindle books.

Warning: some spoilers below, so beware.

Book 1 had a great deal of promise, so I was looking forward to the second installment. This too has an excellent opener - in fact, the same opener, just seen from a different perspective. This is fascinating, and immediately answers two questions raised by the previous book - now we know what happened to Adair, and yes, this really is a case of parallel or alternate worlds, with the secret temple at sea acting as some kind of portal. And the cliffhanger from Book One is resolved straight away, too - Kael survived, although there is no indication of how.

Then it's back to Bastul, where we are immediately plunged into a story more action-packed and fast paced than its predecessor. The city (and in fact the whole Orudan Empire) is under attack from the barbarian Syvaku, for reasons unknown, and is soon destroyed, while Lemus meets an appropriate end. Maeryn is forced to become a leader to the freed slaves, while also protecting her now grown daughter Aelia. Kael joins forces with retreating soldier Dacien, using the skills he learned from his life in the monastery.

As the two groups, Maeryn's slaves and Kael's soldiers, traverse the countryside, we get to see some more of the author's created world. Like many other fantasy writers, his world seems to be peculiarly empty, with just a few widely scattered cities, and virtually no other signs of life, particularly farms, until we get to Orud, the capital.

After such a good opening, the middle section was a huge disappointment. A great deal happens to Maeryn and Kael, but somehow it is made to seem dull.

I read The Awakened book 1 and then bought books 2 and 3 at the same time and have read all of them. I could not put these books down. Now I am waiting for book 4 to come out. I can't wait. Jason Tesar is a very talented writer.

I have read so many fantasy books over the years that I am now a little fed up with them. I bought the first of this trilogy on impulse and within 20 minutes of reading bought all three. The price paid on Amazon per book was really low and to start with I thought this must be a book that was not selling. I will never make that assumption again. Each book in the trilogy got better and better and by the time I had finished all three I would have purchased the next volume at a much higher price. The best fantasy book I have read in a long time, I usually stick with magic, wizards, elves etc and these books to me were something refreshing and addictive. BRILLIANT. I can't wait for the next instalment.
