More About the Author
In late 1998, 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 incredible support from 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. His fast-paced stories span ancient and future worlds, weaving together threads of stirring drama and intense action that provoke reader comments such as, "I couldn't put it down," and "I'll read anything he writes."

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
