What Others are Saying

Just a few links to some great reviews of Gabriel’s Redemption. As any independent author will attest to, reviews are the lifeblood of getting noticed. Thank you one and all for taking the time to read my debut novel, for the time spent in writing such detailed reviews, and most of all for the great comments!

If you love a good story but the techno-babble of some science fiction steers you away from the genre, this is the book for you…I loved this book and when I set it down I wanted more. ” —Eric Swett, My Writer’s Cramp blog

Umstead has created an inter-planetary landscape rich with believable characters, non-stop action, and all the twists and turns that make for a great story.” —R.A. Evans, author of Asylum Lake

There are good books that are being self-published, and this is proof. It’s old-school science fiction pulp updated for a modern era, full of fun world-building details and characters that are easy to root for.” —Rob Hart, blogduggery.com

Gabriel’s Redemption will take you on a thrilling ride full of twists and turns and great characters.” —Dr. Shay Fabbro, author of The Chosen: Book 1 of the Portals of Destiny

The plot has finely woven twists and turns to keep you on your toes. The technology portrayed through out the story is both interesting and believable.” —Glenn Skinner, author of the Keya Quests series

I am not a science fiction person, at all…imagine my surprise when I picked up this novel and couldn’t put it down. –Kaye Peters, romance author, kayepeters.com

From start to finish Gabriel’s Redemption is a good, solid read.  A story with excitement, twists, and great pacing.  Believable characters that you come to love, and sci-fi elements that rival some of the greats.— AJ Powers, author & game designer

If you’re into trilogies, give this one a shot, because the ride is just getting started.” —B.C. Young, author/blogger at The Time Capsule

    some quick reviews of the “Gabriel” series: (as left on B&N)
    140 characters is just not enough….

    Gabriel’s Redemption: A Stealthy page turner!
    I am about 2/3 of the way through and I plan to buy the next two tonight! This story sneaks up on you! You do not even recall turning pages until many, many have gone by. An intriguing story with characters well developed enough that you take their actions, or inaction, personally….well worth a read!

    Gabriel’s Return: Imaginative, involving, and infectious. A wild nightmare ride through some of Gabriel’s skeletons…..though Eden is nothing like your ordinary “closet”….and OH, does he clean house nicely!

    Gabriel’s Revenge: Like riding your favorite roller-coaster with hands in the air! Gabriel takes his lumps like a true champion and always dishes out more than he gets! Almost sad to reach the end…hoping for a new series!

    GabrieI: Zero Point: if you’ve read Steve Umstead’s Evan Gabriel trilogy and wanted to know where Gabriel’s “spring” got wound this is it! You MUST be curious about the what, where, why, or when behind Gabriel’s always impressive “Who”… so grab this one and strap yourself in!
