The List

A thirty year old science experiment, about to be revealed...
Seven people, marked for death, not for what they know, but for what they are...

Rogue Justice
Enigmatic billionaire Mitchell Chandler churns out obscene profits at his aquatic theme parks driven by the spectacular killer whale exhibits. 

Then the orca at Chandler's Seattle Park dies. Now the animal rights activists have all the ammo they need to shut him down.

But Chandler has a plan: Blackmail commercial fisherman Zora Flynn into capturing a replacement whale—and use Zora's mother as bait.

Forced into the orca hunt, Zora encounters a never-before-seen species of killer whale—creatures of mind-bending size, speed, and intelligence.

As awe-struck scientists race to understand the whales' sudden appearance, Zora and Chandler come face-to-face with each other and the chilling truth: the mighty orcas have simply returned... to exact justice.

Awaken His Eyes: The Awakened Book One
THE HISTORY: 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. 

THE PROPHECY: Amidst the chaos of a dying world, a lone voice foretold the awakening of a human warrior who 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 faded from the memory of our kind—until now!

THE AWAKENED: 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, 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 struggle. Kael, sentenced to death after rising up against the cruel leadership of his new step-father, 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 husband. 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 which leads 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 will journey from earth’s mythological past to its post-apocalyptic future, blending the genres of fantasy, sci-fi, and military/political suspense.

The Warrior
It’s the end of the world as they know it!

The planet Darklands doesn’t know this yet, but their days are numbered. Life as they know it is about to come to a violent end and they are not prepared for the battle that is about to take place.

Wildy is a gang leader in Darklands City, and he is the most notorious criminal throughout the land. His gang is so large, and so infamous, that he is considered both a military threat and a law enforcement threat. No human being outside of his gang has seen his face and lived to describe him.

In his final battle as Darklands City’s biggest gang, he faces the one being that could destroy him and who has come for that sole purpose. Wildy stands in front of Draygon, the second most powerful supernatural being on the entire planet.

As Wildy faces down Draygon, the Warrior appears out of nowhere and shows Wildy the one thing he never thought he had: his Soul. The Warrior saves Wildy’s life, and then disappears, asking nothing of Wildy. Yet this glimpse of his own Soul, seen through the eyes of the Warrior, leaves Wildy desperate to find his Soul, and to do so he must find the Warrior.

In his search for the Warrior, Wildy meets Rusty; a young man who has been sequestered in The Fortress of Light. Wildy’s meeting with Rusty is no accident, and while Rusty does not recognize the Warrior by that name, he does know him by another name. Wildy is stepping into dangerous territory, and the last thing he wants is a young neophyte on his hands, but the only way he will find the Warrior will be for him to take Rusty.

Soon these two are running a gang even larger than the gang Wildy ran in Darklands City. Together they would lead a new band with a worldwide reach. If Wildy thought he was notorious before, that was nothing compared to the fame and infamy he would see at this moment. He and Rusty would become both heroes and villains, depending on which side of this ultimate battle you wished to side.

LZR-1143: Perspectives
In a world overrun by the living dead, every victim has a story. These are some of those stories. This collection of six short stories from a world ravaged by the LZR-1143 virus tell the tale of six different people, all of whom fell victim, in different ways, to the deadly plague. 

From the pilot of a commercial aircraft, overwhelmed in midair, to the lonely soldier stranded high above a world of the undead, the six characters each face their own fears and mortality in different ways. 

This 20,000 word short-story collection features a unique selection of characters from the original zombie novel by Bryan James, LZR-1143: Infection, and from the recently released sequel, LZR-1143: Evolution. Each character appears only fleetingly in the longer novels, but each has their own unique thread in the LZR-1143 storyline, all of which are exposed in these short excerpts from their final hours alive. 

The collection includes The Pilot, The Boy, The Inmate, The Fry Cook, The Subway Passenger, and The Sniper. In The Pilot, a commercial aviator sees his last flight end in a way he never could have imagined. In The Boy, a family trip is cut short, and a lonely homecoming is not at all as he anticipated. We see the surprising genesis and true identity of a traveling companion in The Inmate, while The Fry Cook reveals the final moments of a teenage fast food worker. In The Subway Passenger, we learn that in the case of zombie apocalypse, you’d probably rather be aboveground. And in The Sniper, the surprising truth that there are some fates that cannot be fought, even with a fifty caliber rifle.

LZR-1143: Within (A Zombie Novella)
No power. No news. No windows. 

No help.

No hope.

In this 20,000 word novella, set in the infection-ravaged world of Bryan James' frightening and sobering universe of zombie mayhem, a normal night shift becomes a surreal test of courage, strength, and selflessness as an unknown illness takes hold of the country. Inside a reinforced bank office building, insulated from outside news for hours, the men and women inside work obliviously, unaware of the rising tide of horror. 

As society outside crumbles, the power fails. Phone lines are down. Communication is impossible, and those trapped within know nothing of the world without. 

Outside the single locked door, an incessant pounding punctuates the oppressive darkness of this modern catacomb, as the employees trapped inside struggle to understand what is happening.

But soon, they will be fighting to merely survive as they come face to face with the threat that appears from where they least expect it: within.

City Wars
As fiery death rains down on the city, Chicago arms itself to strike back against New York….

It’s the not-too-distant future. Following the Great Wars, the city-state of Chicago has become an urban wasteland. Re-armed to defend itself, the government and its citizens wait in constant readiness for the day when war would break out again…with New York, Los Angeles, perhaps Dallas. Then, without warning, the attack comes…a limited atomic bombardment that threatens even worse devastation.

Thrown together by the winds of war, embittered ex-soldier Jake Bowman and elite bodyguard Cassandra Ingram are drawn into a deadly combat mission against New York. As they are equally drawn into an unexpected, passionate affair. With the government of Chicago crippled by panic, betrayal and murder, Jake and Cassandra are forced into action alone. Can they save their city---and themselves---as total annihilation nears?...
