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.

I have to say that after reading the debut of Jason Tesar, I was excitedly anticipating the second book, The Awakening: Book Two. It starts with a cryptic opening scene with Aldair and leaves the reader still questioning the fate of this character. Then the book continues with the narratives of Kael, Maeryn, and Saba. You are going to have to be patience with this one. It completely starts telling the narrative of this book without answering this reader’s blaring questions from the first book. The majority of this read was frustrating to me... ignorance was not bliss to me. The characters were less dynamic that the first book but so much more familial. From around 23% to 85%, Mr. Tesar, sets up his story like a master illusionist, giving this reader what I thought were random and pointless stories. As with everything in natural, it has symmetry. Symmetry he reveals in his own time. When I got to the end it reminded me of the line in the Matrix, Know thy self. It felt like I didn’t recognize the symmetry until I was ready for it to be revealed to me. As I read it on a Kindle, my patience was rewarded the last 15% of the novel. This is where the three narratives start to come together and get excitingly compelling. It’s like eating the brussel sprouts to get to the French fries and steak. Everything I read before was needed to get to this point. But once I got there all the frustrations of the middle 62% are alleviated and forgiven. What I wanted to happen and what did was shocking and surprisingly pleasantly different. It ended on a high note that invigorated my wanting to read the third novel. The Awakening: Book Two closed some of my questions from the first, made me start asking new questions, and morphed some of the questions I still have left. Prime example: Where is Aldair? I have my suspicions and I hoping I correct but the one thing I do know based on Jason Tesar’s first two books, I will not be disappointed with the answers that I find.
