Don't love the fact that after book 6 it has been nearly 2 years and book 7 has not come out. Instead, the author has started writing other novels and has even completed the wandering stars series - without finishing or atleast advancing the Awakened series.
I think this is grossly unfair to the readers. I will never buy another book from Jason Tesar until I know the final book for that particular series has been completed !!!!
The story begins in a seaside town in days of yore. As it opens one is led to believe that this is going to be a familiar, pleasant undertaking - one of loving family cohesiveness, set inside a small palace community where leadership is benign and everyone who lives inside and outside the palace walls - are happy and content. But it quickly morphs into a fast ride of magic and suspense. The full gamut of human emotions are experienced as the author takes the reader on a terrific ride through the ordinary (though not so ordinary!) experiences of romanticism, passion, treachery and innocence lost. The story then careens into fantastic realms where up is down, down is up and even TIME itself is lost. His characters are moved through experiences of personal/political/global/galactical realities which take them far from their comfortable lives.....then farther still. But their courage, fierceness, tenacity and wisdom are what overcome and rehabilitate the tatters of their lives.
As a writer Jason Tesar's style and voice are reminiscent of some of the best sci-fi story tellers I've read... J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Herbert to name two. He has the uncanny ability of taking me completely outside of myself and into his story. He should write full time, IMHO ;) And I would be the first to ask for an autographed copy of this finished series! I can't wait for book seven!! I must go and read "Incarnation" to help me understand the beginnings...I can't begin to imagine what's in store as Jason Tesar brings this fantastical ride to it's close :)!
As with all of the previous book, Foundations is packed full of action. I was hoping for a bigger battle between Armaros and Kael. There was some confusion for me as to what body Armaros was inhabiting at the time. Both are minor issues and didn't detract from the overall experience.
I was very thrilled to see that this shouldn't be the last book of the series as I had feared. Jason has done such a good job in previous books in developing the characters to the point that you want to know more about them, and want to see them succeed. He has taken it a step farther in Foundations. He goes into the family life of the surviving members of NULL. The last third of the book was developing that side of the characters and setting up the next book.
Another plot line that we finally got to witness is the reuniting of Kael's parents. Adair and Mayern are back together, something that I have been waiting for since book one. Adair is also introduced to his daughter.
There was more development of Saba as well. He finally became a character that I liked. He seemed week and over passive in previous books, which for me was difficult to take, since he is one of the Myndarym.
I really love this book and as in the past I can't wait for the next work from Jason Tesar.
What is better? I like the way in which both worlds have been drawn closer together in terms of action. There is more of a united feel to the storyline, and the ending (no spoiler here) is a proper expression of that feeling. The personae have been given more depth, but I regret a little that Kael seems more remote in this book.
The decision to give only 4 stars reflects my sense of the story being being rushed. While the first victories had been described in more detail, with more room for concern that the outcome was in doubt, this victory came as a rush, the whole preparation seemed to have been made invisible, and unfolded magically. We discover what had been done as the effects were manifested, and I thought that more time could have been put into plotting that victory. That is perhaps a harsh judgement, but I still enjoyed this story very much, so please do not let this put you off buying this latest in the series.
