Gabriel's Redemption: Evan Gabriel Trilogy, Book 1 | [Steve Umstead]

Gabriel's Redemption: Evan Gabriel Trilogy, Book 1

North American Federation Navy Commander Evan Gabriel was dishonorably discharged after a disastrous mission on a far off world called Eden. He's spent the last five years hiding from his past, from those responsible for the failed mission, from those responsible for running him out of the Navy, and from those originally responsible for making him into who he was - a highly-trained, physically and mentally augmented Special Forces soldier. Two mysterious visitors appear unannounced at the door of a Gabriel's seedy hotel room in the slums of Jamaica.

Publisher's Summary

"A cast of interesting and believable characters and a plot that kept me listening…I enjoyed the author's take on technology and the political landscape of the future. Definitely recommended!" (Michael R. Hicks, bestselling author of the In Her Name science-fiction/adventure series and the bestselling thriller Season of the Harvest).

North American Federation Navy Commander Evan Gabriel was dishonorably discharged after a disastrous mission on a far off world called Eden. He's spent the last five years hiding from his past, from those responsible for the failed mission, from those responsible for running him out of the Navy, and from those originally responsible for making him into who he was - a highly-trained, physically and mentally augmented Special Forces soldier.

Two mysterious visitors appear unannounced at the door of a Gabriel's seedy hotel room in the slums of Jamaica. His past has finally caught up with him. From the decaying Caribbean to politically charged South America, from the back alleys of Mars to a tiny colony on a planet 600 light years from Earth, Gabriel's Redemption is a near-future military science-fiction story of a personal journey seen from the perspective of a soldier who has lost everything - one who desperately needs to redeem himself not only in his government's eyes, but also his own. Interstellar action and political intrigue mix with one-on-one battles on the surface of a frozen planet in Book One of the science fiction-adventure trilogy.

What the Critics Say

"Umstead can write an action-packed adventure story better than most. He is an artist in designing a high-tech battlefield and weaving in the human element with his character's depth and color. If you like action in a science fiction setting then you really need to pick this up from Book One and give it a shot." (Tom Clementson, The Kindle Book Review)

"This series brings me back to the old days when sci-fi was about ass kicking, great friends, loyalty and action." (Amazon Reviewer)

    Gabriel is that fallen hero who lost everything he worked for as a special operations officer. This former elite military man must take on one more mission for the man who brought him down in order to redeem his career and restore faith in himself. Gabriel knows there is more behind the mission than he’s been told but he’s surrounded by a team he knows nothing about. With no allies, Gabriel will have to follow his instincts in order to bring himself and his team back alive.Gabriel is flawed by the universal politics and ambitions of the power brokers in this world. He is a tool, an instrument whose race to uncover a truth will completely reshape the universe one way or another. With only a finite amount of time, he must flush out the villains nearest him and expose their masters amongst the elite. More than his own skill and intuition, Gabriel must learn who to trust others because these are monumental tasks he cannot do along.Gabriel’s Redemption is hard-core science fiction with plenty of gadgets and adrenaline to keep the synapses firing while you turn the pages all night long. The world Steve has created is rich in detail and full of advanced technology: pulse weapons, neurotic brain implants, wormholes, inter-stellar travel, everything a scifi fan could hope for. I highly recommend it to anybody who loves science fiction or military-style action because this has plenty of both. I couldn’t put it down. Ray Chase delivers a perfect narration, I just loved his many voices. I am so looking forward to the next book in this very entertaining trilogy. :)

    Story
    "Great story, the narrator....not so much"
    What made the experience of listening to Gabriel's Redemption the most enjoyable?

    The storyline is good, lots of forward thinking on future technology.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Likeable protagonist.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No. I mean no offence to the narrator; however the fluctuations in his voice makes the book sound like a really cheap used car commercial.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I really wanted to like this book, I just could not get passed the narration...sorry.
