In an intriguing and unique new book, Awareness: The Hero Within, author Yeral E. Ogando delves into many of the questions and thoughts that Christians may have pondered over the course of time. What powers do those who are Christians possess? How can they use the gifts they are given to bring the gift of God closer to themselves and to show those gifts to others? Well, in Awareness: The Hero Within, those very questions are asked of our protagonist, and the answers received will help to strengthen readers’ resolve, enlighten them, and give them hope for their own lives, all at the same time.
I very much enjoyed Awareness: The Hero Within. Author Yeral E. Ogando has done a great job in creating characters that his readers will relate to, connect with, and will come to care about, continuing to think of them long after the final pages have been read. If that isn’t a hallmark of a great author, I’m not sure what is. Any reader with a strong Christian faith, any who are curious about Christianity, or those looking for an interesting story with a great deal of action and adventure should definitely give Awareness: The Hero Within a chance. I am pleased to recommend this book, and I certainly hope that author Yeral E. Ogando continues his writing in this genre. If his next book is anything like this one, it will certainly be worth a read.
Fighting their way through a spiritual world, our heroes will attempt to defeat some of the most outstanding and incredible beings in existence.

They will be tested at every turn, and brought to the limit of their capabilities, calling on their faith to see them through.
“Pride goes before destruction. How well he knew. But how painful was the lesson. He needed to clear his head and help the other team members before fear overtook and claimed them all.”
Mistakes happen, however when that mistake is against the forces of darkness God’s army must listen to the voice of the Elite Commander and not get ahead of His timing. The Emissary has been called back to God’s heart and he knows his job is to train God’s “Precious Team” to prepare for the battle against The Lord of the Night and his second in command Apollyon. Truly a battle of good versus evil as 5 Ohio towns must be freed from the forces of evil and restored to the light. The Elite Commander has more to reveal, but not yet. We’ve all heard of the Avengers, superheroes galore, as kids cheer for their favorites. However, one will find, within this novel, these superheroes are more powerful than can be imagined – these are the called superheroes of God.
Let me begin by saying if you haven’t read book one of this series stop right now and start at the beginning of this powerful, Christ-packed novel. I found myself not only lost within its pages, but I was born and raised in Ohio so the battles become real and alive for me. Like me, readers will find themselves reading their Bibles and Ohio history as they read this page-turner. When I read book one I felt that it was “Left Behind”, “The Screwtape Letters” and “This Present Darkness” all rolled into one epic novel and my thoughts haven’t changed only intensified. My mind’s eye played the battle scenes, as I read. I sat at the table as the team planned. I was on my knees in prayer with the prayer warriors. In other words, this book is more than engaging it is alive. It is more than fiction – it is truth. Yeral has sounded the battle cry. As a Christian, I couldn’t just read, I became a part knowing we are up against the forces of darkness and one cannot read this well-written, God-inspired book and not walk away changed. I for one was blown away and can’t wait for more. If you are a Christian you have to read this phenomenal series!!
