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!
“Gabriel’s Redemption has a classic espionage feel mixed with good old science fiction savvy. Steve Umstead definitely did his homework and the result is a rich, involved plot laced with subtle comedic relief and topped with a healthy ladle of bravado. As a former military member, I was instantly taken in by the rich detail of the Naval backdrop for Commander Gabriel and his newly-formed special forces unit.” —Nigel Holderby, blogger at TheGeekSource.com
