It has been an amazing experience jumping back into the prehistoric world of the Wandering Stars. Though it involves the same underlying concepts as The Awakened, this series is closer in historical proximity to the events that launched this whole epic saga. So in that sense, it's a more direct application of the subject matter. If you can imagine The Awakened series as a tree, the Wandering Stars would be the soil beneath it.
As the author, I already had a firm grasp on this "back story" before I even wrote the first line of Awaken His Eyes. But knowing something at a conceptual level and fleshing it out on a computer screen are two very different experiences. The process of building cultures and tearing them down again, creating characters and pitting them against each other, adds a richness and depth to the story that I hadn't even felt before. It's been enlightening to get my hands dirty with the origins of my own characters and the larger plot.
My hope for you, the reader, is that you'll thoroughly enjoy submerging yourself in this fictional past while keeping one eye on the future. Like reading the scene in The Hobbit where Bilbo finds the Ring, I hope you'll enjoy this story not only for what it is but also for where it is going.
A few other things worth mentioning ...
If you've found yourself finishing my other novels too quickly, you'll be happy to learn that Manifestation is about 40% longer than my previous novels. But if I've done my job correctly, this one will still end sooner than you want it to.
Most of this book, like my other novels, would be rated PG-13 if it were a movie. However, there are a few scenes that are not suitable for younger readers and would be rated R. These scenes are critical to the overall story, so I had to include them. But I wanted to mention it so it doesn't come as a shock later on.
OK. Enough of that. Let's get on with the show! Scroll down to check out the cover art and read the description. Then visit the Amazon page and download your Kindle copy.
As I've said before, writing for a living is a dream come true. And I couldn't do it without your amazing support! Thanks for reading my stories. I hope you enjoy this one.

Captivity has left its wounds, and the peace that Sariel fought to obtain is slipping from his grasp. To answer the questions plaguing his mind, he must seek out his former allies. But what he discovers is a task left undone, a coalition standing in his way, and revenge far beyond his new limitations.
The gods are dividing the earth into kingdoms. As they build an alliance upon a foundation of shared resources, a new evil is manifesting—rising from the aftermath of their rebellion. It has the power to upset this fragile equilibrium and cover the earth in darkness. With enemies on every side, Sariel must weigh the cost of a promise against the value of his own life, leading him to an unthinkable decision.
The battle for independence from the Eternal Realm may be over, but the war for the Temporal Realm has just begun.
In volume two of the Wandering Stars series, Jason Tesar’s fantasy epic spreads across a prehistoric landscape in a clash of civilizations that will alter the course of human history and give rise to mankind’s oldest legends.
