Product Description

A Gabriel Universe Novella

Evan Gabriel wasn't always a feared and respected North American Federation Navy Commander. Before dangerous missions to the ice-bound planet of Poliahu, the deadly jungle world of Eden, and politically corrupt Mars, he was a simple recruit, fighting to make his mark in the elite Naval Special Forces...and was part of a top-secret military experiment that would change his life forever.

Zero Point tells the tale of a young man faced with difficult choices and dangerous trials. Fans of the series will see part of the mysterious past Evan Gabriel carries with him, while readers new to the series get a preview of what is to come in a military man's haunted life.

Zero Point is the true beginning of Evan Gabriel, and his story is just getting started.

Also available: Gabriel's Redemption (Book 1), Gabriel's Return (Book 2), Gabriel's Revenge (Book 3), Gabriel's Journey (complete collection) 

~Note: This is a novella of approximately 22,000 words (~90 printed pages) and can be read either before the trilogy or after. Includes excerpts from all three Gabriel books (not included in word count).

~" 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
~ "If John Scalzi and Tom Clancy got combined in a transporter accident a la The Fly....and I mean that in a good way."
~ "This series brings me back to the old days when Sci-Fi was about ass kicking, great friends, loyalty and action."
~ "Umstead has a way of putting you right into the scene, whether it be on a Jamaican beach, a rundown apartment or the icy surface of a distant planet."
~ "Character-rich story, non-stop adventure (think Jason Bourne travels the stars). Completely immersive read."
~"...the military fiction of Tom Clancy, the hardware of Heinlein's Starship Troopers, and the intrigue of Dan Brown."
~ "The detail of the world-building pulled me in and made everything utterly believable."
~ "Well-thought-out universe with a tightly woven history, timeline, and culture."
~ "The author's imagination is amazing...he has knowledge of combat tactics, both with squads and hand-to-hand."
~ "Umstead's writing is solid, as good as it gets, not only in the genre, but in general."
~ "Umstead deals with issues like honor, responsibility and human nature. While deep in thematic content the forward thrust of the story never stops."

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Preview to the Trilogy 8 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a prequel to the Evan Gabriel Trilogy and it gives the reader a glimpse into Evan Gabriel's start as a Special Forces Soldier. As I am sure anyone who has read my reviews knows I love military Science Fiction and this one is almost as good as some of my favourite writers. I look forward to reading the Trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start 11 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a novella detailing the origins of Evan Gabriel, a futuristic super soldier whose story continues in the trilogy.

The novella is a fairly short read but gives enough detail to understand Evan's motives for agreeing to participate in the programme and although I did guess the 'twist' fairly early on it was still an enjoyable read.

I will definately be buying the trilogy and look forward to reading what else Evan will get up to.

It's a free novella you'll read in an afternoon so give it a try and I'm sure you wont be disappointed

1.0 out of 5 stars The book Gabriel Zero Point 27 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not like this book very much because there was no romance forthcoming. There was no real content or background involved in it. It just went straight into the story. Not my cup of tea I am afraid.
