About Jason Tesar

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. His fast-paced stories span ancient and future worlds, weaving together threads of stirring drama and intense action that provoke reader comments such as, “I couldn’t put it down,” and “I’ll read anything he writes.”

Jason currently has four published novels—from two related series—as well as a combined edition. All are available in print and ebook formats at most major online retailers. And the list is growing…

- Awaken His Eyes: The Awakened Book One
- Paths of Destruction: The Awakened Book Two
- Hands to Make War: The Awakened Book Three
- Combined Edition: The Awakened Books One through Three
- Incarnation: Wandering Stars Volume One

Terrific job for a new author. I am positive Jason Tesar will become one of my new favorite authors! With his wonderful imagination and talent for storytelling, he is sure to be a bestselling homerun! With this book superbly following Book 1 I can't wait to read Book 3!! I keep looking for books to lose myself in and hold my interest till the end and with Kael, Jason's books do just that.

Book 2 was even more exciting than the first book in the series. The author brought the reader almost seamlessly from one chapter to the next, all the while changing characters and scenes to keep the story moving. In this book, the characters are more fully developed as past secrets are revealed. The plot builds until the explosive ending when Kael is almost reunited with his mother.
I absolutely cannot wait to read Book 3 to see what happens next. For a fledgling writer, Jason Tesar has a talent which needs to be further explored and shared. I haven't enjoyed reading this much in a very long time!!

Book 2 takes right off where the first left off, but it picks up the pace. I liked the focus on action followed by flashbacks to fill in the details. It is keeping me on the edge of my seat. It does jump around, but I enjoyed that. It’s not just another typical storyline. As the plot thickens some of the questions are left to be answered in the future. This is definitely keeping my interest. Some plot twists might be anticipated, but still hit with a greater impact and I find them more surprising. It is keeping me guessing and looking forward to the next one.

After the "cliff hanger" in book one I couldn't wait to get to book two in order to see what happens to Kael. I had almost forgotten about the start of book one and the arrival of that mysterious man from the past. Anyway, I continued to enjoy the unfolding of the story, the conflicts along the way, and struggles of the various lead characters. Now on to book three.
