Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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.

Critic Reviews

"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 listen to this audiobook 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)

THE FLICKER OF THAT MEMORY

FLICKERED
You can't get too upset when something is free, it just cost your time. It was a good way for me to find out I don't want to continue the series. The writing is a little stilted. The characters are card board cut outs. The story is old hat. If you like Gordon Dickson, you will love this.

I hope the whole series is not read by this narrator. He reads in a very sing song way, which I found distracting.

100% Narration Failure

Take care here readers, there might be a story in here, but you will not be able to enjoy it with the incredibly bad narration. I deeply regret my failed attempt to make it through this short introduction to the series.

Ray: I know you don't speak anything like this in your life. And you have never heard anyone speak like this. How did this book make it out into the world without anyone mentioning that your use of falling intonation renders the book into an unbearable experience?

Steve: Get this redone. Please. I want to experience the series, but as it stands, that is not possible.

Audible: Letting this happen hurts your brand.

Entertaining if a little predictable

I enjoyed this - a bonus that it was free but I thought the performance was good and the story entertained me , even if it was pretty obvious what was going to happen.
I'll consider carrying on with the series.

Surprisingly excellent!

If I was reading it, it would have been a page turner! :)

Not usually accustomed to listening to military intelligence style, action packed Sci - Fi but definitely worth a listen! It's free so why not?!

I knew the lingo pretty well due to a military upbringing. Therefore, I found I could follow the story & plot well & also appreciate the authors research (and/or his background?), into military language, tactics and so on. This gave the it a convincing & genuine feel even though it was set in far into the future. However, watching a hell of a lot of this genre helped too! :)

Nevertheless, even if you're not used to this genre, the narrator Ray Chase, read extremely fluidly, with excellent articulation & rhythm at the right moments!

Am thinking now to read the whole series so nice work! You've succeeded to suck me in. Hehe. :p
