Product Description

Mankind's greatest hero will be awakened!

Book 1 of 9 in the bestselling Awakened series

The History: Thousands of years ago, a renegade faction of angels abandoned the spiritual realm and began their inhabitation of earth. Worshiped as gods for their wisdom and power, they corrupted our realm and altered the course of human civilization. Amidst the chaos of a dying world, a prophet foretold the awakening of a human who would bring an end to this evil. But the cataclysmic destruction of our planet forced a rebirth of humanity. The prophecy faded from the memory of our kind and went unfulfilled—until now!

The Awakened: The physical dimension is fractured. What remain are numerous worlds moving simultaneously through time, sharing a common history, connected by a guarded portal.

On a parallel Earth, in the city of Bastul, Colonel Adair Lorus disappears while investigating the death of an informant, triggering a series of events which will tear his family apart and set in motion the resolution of an ancient conflict. His son, Kael, sentenced to death after rising up against the cruel leadership of his new stepfather, is rescued from prison and trained in the arts of war by a mystical order of clerics. Excelling in every aspect of his training, Kael inwardly struggles to give himself fully to the methods of his new family, or the god they worship. Maeryn, bitter over the disappearance of her husband and supposed execution of her son, fears for her life at the hands of her newly-appointed spouse. Finding comfort and purpose in her unborn child, she determines to undermine his authority by reaching out to an underground social movement known as the Resistance. After being forced from his home, Kael’s former mentor, Saba, uncovers a clue to Adair’s disappearance. Sensing a connection to his own forgotten past, Saba begins an investigation thatleads to the discovery of a secret military organization operating within the Orudan Empire.

In Book One of his Amazon bestselling debut series, Jason Tesar launches an epic saga that journeys from earth’s mythological past to its post-apocalyptic future, blending the genres of fantasy, science fiction, action adventure, and military thriller.

Interview with the Author

Q – What makes this story unique?
A – I enjoyed fantasy and science fiction as a child, in both books and movies. From that foundation, my tastes expanded as I got older. I gravitated toward action & adventure stories, watched war & military films with my brothers, and eventually became fascinated by suspense thrillers with a political bent.

What I attempted to do with The Awakened was to craft a story that was epic in scale, combined all of my favorite genres and themes, and spanned worlds from ancient cultures to our own modern civilization. In short, I wrote the book that I wanted to read but couldn’t find.

And readers have responded! Many have expressed their enjoyment at finding a story unlike any other, yet one that is built upon themes we’ve all come to love. There is something for everyone in The Awakened.

Q – What was the inspiration for The Awakened series?
A – I’ve always been fascinated by the subject of angels and demons. As a religious person, I carried this metaphysical perspective into my study of myths and legends. And to my surprise, I found much common ground between it and the Greek & Roman gods, as well as the heroes and monsters of Norse and Viking mythology.

I wondered if one might have caused the other … if the myths could actually be true at their core. That’s when my imagination really took off. What I ended up with was a coming of age story about mankind’s greatest hero pitted against its worst enemies.

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 (, Twitter (@jasontesar), on his blog (, or send him an email at

HASH(0x9bd1bc54) out of 5 stars Just when I gave up on fiction/fantasy... May 31 2011
By Uncle Gerald - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really like fiction/fantasy books like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Ranger's Apprentice, etc..., and I'm very loyal. The problem I've had in the past was there are too many copied fantasy series too similar to already established series (i.e. coming-of-age boy just finding out he's a wizard, or adventurers with a dwarf and elf, and all these books about vampire or werewolf sex - thanks to the Twilight series I suspect, etc...)

It takes me a while to warm up to a new book, so once I find a series, I stick with it. I downloaded this book to my kindle because it was free - I figured I had nothing to lose, and I'm happy I did. The Awakened is a very well written original story that kept me guessing throughout the entire book. I didn't know who the main protagonist was until I was well into the book, and just when I thought I was jaded to any plot-twist, the twist at the end - it made perfect sense! How could I have missed it!

I don't want to give away the story, all I'm saying is that if you like action packed fiction/ fantasy with a little political intrigue/conspiracy, then you will really like this book.

HASH(0x9a1eab1c) out of 5 stars A good beginning to 'The Awakened' trilogy...3 1/2 Stars July 6 2011
By R. Nicholson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"The Awakened: Book One" is the first book in a fantasy adventure trilogy by Jason Tesar. This is a Kindle only e-edition and is a 929 Kb download. It was free at the time of this writing at the Amazon Kindle book store.

General theme *SPOILERS*

This story occurs in the Orudan Empire and follows the story of the Lorus family: Adair...husband, father and governor of the city of Bastul; Maeryn...Adair's wife: Kael...their son of about 8 years and finally Saba...Kael's tutor.
After Adair goes missing following some mysterious clues, the governorship is quickly awarded to a cruel man, Lemus, who forces himself on Maeryn and disposes (or so he thinks) of both Kael and Saba. Most of this first book details the hardships of Maeryn, Kael and Saga and their struggle to survive.


The Pros:
1.) this was a story with a good plot that grabbed your interest and kept you reading. Several twists and turns that opened up new avenues to provide depth and scope to the overall tale.

2.) simply written, in plain language; no need for a dictionary or thesaurus here.

3.) maps...several very good maps, each with an interactive link embedded into the text.

The Cons:
1.) while reading this book I began to notice that some areas seemed to be dragged out...i.e. Kael's training session with Ukiru. These extended areas of 'fill' accompanied by the 'plain language', made skimming of some sections almost a necessity.

2.) although not a Young Adult (YA) book, the tone of the writing had areas that had a definitive YA quality to it.

I liked this first book. A good story, generally well told.
Would I read the follow-up books...yes.
3 1/2 Stars.

HASH(0x9ddf30a8) out of 5 stars Fabulous series May 31 2011
By Kfcarter - Published on

I received The Awakened, Book One, free from Amazon for my Kindle. Thank You. I have not been able to put this book down - the story is new and fresh and exciting. I just purchased Books Two and Three and cannot wait for even more to be written. This author is new and I am very excited about his writing. It seems that so many of my favorite authors have sold out to Hollywood and their writings are never as good any more. It is wonderful to have a new author to read and follow. Keep up the GREAT work!!!!! I love your imagination.

HASH(0x9a65da20) out of 5 stars Misleading Ratings... Aug. 3 2011
By Claire - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So I bought this book unsure of what to expect. I read the book description, thought, OK, not what I usually look for in a book, but I'll try it. Read the reviews (mostly 5 stars) and decided that maybe it's better than I was already starting to think.

I painstakingly managed to get all the way through the book, and am still struggling to figure out why it got such great reviews...

WRITING: The author's writing style isn't really all that great, it's not very engaging, I found that the huge amount of detail is just uninteresting and unnecessary, and that his use of vocabulary is simple and sometimes repetitive (maybe it's just me, but i don't like reading the same word 4 times within 3 sentences).

CHARACTERS: The characters in the story aren't interesting and they all act in a similar predictable manner. They don't set anything into motion and their individual personalities aren't well defined. Basically, they all just sit around and wait for the un-cataclysmic events in this book to happen.

PLOT: The plot of this book was downright boring...I kept waiting for something to happen that would throw everything off balance and create that "and the plot thickens..." moment, but it simply never happened. Mostly, I felt as if i were constantly reading about the character waking up, doing something like eating breakfast or rolling over, and thinking about something uninteresting, and then ghosting through the rest of his/her day. The most interesting pages were probably the last two, when something mildly suspenseful actually happened, and just when the book started to engage me for the first time, it abruptly ended.

In short, this book really was just one big, long, boring intro to the rest of the series. I wouldn't recommend it, and based on the quality of this first book, I probably won't read the 2nd and 3rd installments.

HASH(0x9aaab51c) out of 5 stars Don't Bother Starting Series Nov. 27 2011
By Kim H. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The first book is pretty good, but it leaves you hanging so that you will want to read the other two, and the second is okay, but the third is pitiful. Too many things were left undone, too much was contrived, and the story eventually just rushed from battle to battle. I had a very hard time getting through the third book, and by the time I was done, I wished I hadn't bothered.
