Smashwords book reviews by Mike Dougherty

  • Awaken His Eyes: The Awakened Book One on March 06, 2012

    Jason Tesar writes a very creative story line that definitely kept me guessing and not wanting to put The Awakened: Book One down. He shows skill in dividing the story into credible story lines following the characters. I can't say I always appreciated being kept hanging, waiting to see what would happen. I can say I did not lose interest and felt compelled to keep reading to learn how it would all work out. I was drawn into each characters persona and eagerly read on to see how the constant twists and surprises would propel the character into more action. I look forward to continuing the series; I have so many unanswered questions...
  • Hands to Make War: The Awakened Book Three on March 17, 2012

    To the point, to the blade, everybody gets what’s coming to them in book 3. There are twists and surprises to keep you guessing and still will leave most satisfied with the ending. Yet, the ending is just the beginning of round 2. I can’t wait to read what comes next. Keep writing Jason!
  • Paths of Destruction: The Awakened Book Two on March 17, 2012

    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.
