People keep asking me: “what is your book about?” It’s a difficult question to answer on the spot. How do I sum up approximately 700 pages of drama and action-packed content into a nice, 10-second marketing pitch that makes people what to read my novel? Sometimes I think I’d do better to keep my mouth shut, to prevent my lame explanation from being the very reason why people don’t read it. So, to prevent future awkward situations, I’ve decided to post the high-level synopsis that will be published on the back cover of The Awakened.
Over five thousand 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 the realm of the physical and forever altered the course of history.
Amidst the chaos of a dying world, a lone voice foretold the awakening of a warrior that would bring an end to this evil perpetrated against all of creation. But with the cataclysmic destruction of earth and rebirth of humanity, the prophecy went unfulfilled and eventually faded from the memory of our kind…until now!
The physical dimension is fractured. What remain now are numerous fragmented worlds moving simultaneously through time, sharing a common history, connected only by a guarded portal. On a parallel earth, a child is rescued from prison and trained in the arts of war by a mystical order of clerics. When he returns to his home in search of his family, he becomes entangled in a brutal conspiracy to gain control of the Empire. Racing to unravel the secrecy of the enemy’s identity and motive, he is haunted by the memories of his past and drawn by the destiny that awaits him.
In his debut novel, JASON TESAR delves into the heart of an ancient legend, beginning an epic saga which journeys from earth’s mythological antediluvian past to its post-apocalyptic future, blending the genres of fantasy, sci-fi, and military/political suspense.
