This One’s For the Scifi Lovers!


It’s no secret that I am way into Star Wars and Star Trek (hey, I have 3 Star Trek tattoos) and really dig the idea of traveling to other worlds and seeing cool alien creatures. What you might not know is that I am a tough-guy movie freak. Seriously. Give me Rambo, The Expendables, Terminator, Die Hard, Blood Sport any day over chick flicks! The more car chases, guns, battles, technology, blood, etc the better! 😀

It’s even better when you get all of these things in books that I love. Well, maybe not the car chases but spaceship chases and what could be more exciting that that??

When I discovered the Evan Gabriel trilogy by Steve Umstead, I was stoked to begin reading them. They have it all: intrigue, action, cool tech gadgets, alien worlds…everything a girl could ask for 🙂

I admit I am a sucker for novellas and short stories based on my favorite books. It’s like getting a special surprise you weren’t expecting. Especially when it delves into areas that you were curious about or brings to light something that was skimmed over in the main novels of the series. When Steve announced that he was releasing a prequel novella I squealed like a teenager at a Justin Bieber concert.

If you like military scifi or just scifi in general, or if you like tough guys running around kicking the crap out of bad guys, then you will DIG Steve’s Evan Gabriel trilogy! Available in e-book and paperback. Want to read something to see what the fuss is all about? Read his prequel novella, Gabriel: Zero Point (e-book only at this time). It’s the perfect length to whet your appetite. But be forewarned! Once you finish with that, you’ll want to read the other three novels in the series (Gabriel’s Redemption, Gabriel’s Return, Gabriel’s Revenge).

    You’re my kind of movie maven! DIE HARD is my favorite movie to watch during the holiday season. 😀 I’ll have to check out the Evan Gabriel trilogy!

    Sweet but 3 Star Trek Tattoo’s. Where’s the Star Wars love? I expected so much more out of Expendables and was actually disappointed (even though I love those types of movies). Maybe because I wanted Steve Austin to be on the “Good side”

      I thought about getting the Falcon on my lower back and have a battle scene between that and the Enterprise 😀
