5.0 out of 5 stars An Adventurous 'Not-Your-Typical' Pirate Story 20 May 2016
By Lori Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Summary:

Captain Gabriel Wallace of the Royal Navy finds himself tangled in a web of lies, deceit and betrayal. Following a mishap in a tavern involving the Admiral, his wife and her lover, Wallace is court-martialed. Along with his loyal crew, he steals his ship, and heads for the high seas. Although Wallace is now a pirate, he is still an honorable and fair Captain. With his mind set on vengeance, he sails to the Colonies and the Caribbean with the Royal Navy in pursuit.

Review:

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling is a 'not-your-typical' pirate story. And that's a good thing for this reader who normally reads science fiction and thrillers. The authors did an excellent job maintaining the appropriate language for the early 18th Century. Historical events are well-researched. And the cast of characters are believable and well-rounded. This novel has some of the best action scenes I have read in a long time (yes, even better than some thrillers I've recently read). They left me breathless and in anticipation. There are some endearing moments throughout the novel involving Wallace, Miles Jacob and a young boy named Adam. Through those scenes, you learn about the character of Gabriel Wallace, what makes him the man he is and how loyal his friends really are. The story is authentic, engaging and suspenseful. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An action packed journey to piracy and revenge – all in the name of the crown, queen and county – set in 1705. 9 March 2016
By Sarina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Have you ever enjoyed book so much –you absolutely needed to tell everyone about it? This is one of those books. Stating the obvious: I enjoyed reading this Historical Adventure by authors PS Barlett and Ronovan Hester. Amber Wake – Gabriel Falling, follows the journey of Gabriel Wallace a Royal Navy Captain. Betrayal and corruption lead this dishonored captain on a journey to piracy and revenge – all in the name of the crown, queen and county – set in 1705.
The story itself could easily be turned into a movie. The authors give you an action packed scene after the next. You can hardly wait to turn the page. This story tied in well with the other books in this series, all, which I’ve also read – and think, are highly recommendable. The difference between this book and the other’s being that this one is set in a man’s world, told by a man. Women do not play much of a vital role in this story except for making the life of our hero difficult.
I loved reading this hero, as he clearly is a man of honor. The emotional conflicts he endures throughout his revenge set mission makes for interesting reading. The relationship between him and his second in charge is a good example of such. We also find a boy Adam in this story. Gabriel seems to have taken up the father roll to Adam, which makes for some endearing scenes. The main characters are very well developed and complex.
As this is an Indie publication, it seems necessary to comment on the well-formatted and overall well-edited book. The rich usage of the English language was a delight to read. Exquisite. Some real care was put into the actual word usage. The language also fit the period of the tale.
Overall, my personal opinion is that the authors PS Bartlett and Ronovan Hester did an excellent job writing this book. But don’t take my word for it, read the first chapter on the kindle sample. I dare say if you enjoy action packed adventure with swords and fistfights you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED it! It was a perfect segue from nonfiction to fiction. 6 April 2016
By Melissa G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Because I normally gravitate towards nonfiction books, I was surprised how much I loved AMBER WAKE: Gabriel Falling. Historical fiction has never been on my reading radar but the Old English dialogue was a standout pleasure. Much of the story is set upon a large sailing ship on the not always calm seas as they travel across the Atlantic from England to North America, then heading southward down its eastern coastline. They do have a fair amount of adventure also (or should I say problems) whenever they step onto land.

Having enjoyed reading articles on a range of subjects, as well as a few short fiction pieces by Ronovan Hester on his blog RonovanWrites, I was probably a bit closed-minded to doubt I would enjoy reading this also. He has a great style to his writing and storytelling, and though I haven’t met him, I feel his personality shines through his words; caring, thoughtful, and imaginative, with a wonderfully straight forward sense of humour and high moral standards--much like the main character of this novel, Royal Navy Captain Gabriel Wallace, aka Pirate Captain Rasmus Bergman. The ocean setting, pirate plot, and the desire to read a longer piece by Hester meant I couldn’t resist diving into the book, making it a perfect segue into fiction reading for me.

Gabriel Falling is a prequel to a series of other books written by Bartlett, though it most definitely works on its own. Now I’m curious about the rest of the story, particularly as to if and how far Captain Wallace’s polished persona transforms as a result of the personal vendetta which this story revolves around. There are definite indications that the experience has either changed him or perhaps only revealed his true feelings and desires.

There are plenty of other colourful characters along with the protagonist, my favourite being Maddox Carbonale. I continually wondered when he would resurface in the story and what contention and chaos would follow. If Amber Wake wasn’t a prequel, I would likely be saying that my only disappointment with the book was that his character literally just disappeared. I think even Captain Wallace was surprised to not see him again before the stories denouement. But, alas! There’s good news-- Carbonale has a lead role in Bartlett’s book, Blue Diamond. This was merely his introduction, a well written one that has me eager to read more about him.

Though there’s violence in Amber Wake, it’s nothing that isn't expected from a good ol' (and authentic) pirate tale and isn't graphic or disturbing. There's a morsel of sexual content-- it's not explicit, but rather helps to further define Wallace’s character and his relationship with his closest confidante. Both appropriately add tension and intrigue to the story.

Ronovan Hester and P.S. Bartlett should be proud of their collaborative writing efforts as there was never a dull or unrealistic moment in this pirate tale. The series of books are written in a reverse order of their chronology. AMBER WAKE: Gabriel Falling is a strong foundation for many more pirate adventures to be built upon. I highly recommend this book to all and look forward to reading the rest of the books in the The Razor's Adventures Pirate Tales series.

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's far more dangerous to betray a friend than to deceive an enemy." 14 June 2016
By Author/Artist Cristi Taijeron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I always love a good back story, especially when it comes to pirates. There are so many different and fascinating reasons that these people, historic and fictional, choose to turn their backs on their homelands and raise the black flag. I learned about the reason Gabriel Wallace went rogue in P.S. Bartlett's other book, Jaded Tides, and knowing what a levelheaded and goodhearted, man that cutthroat pirate was at his core, I just knew that Gabriel Falling was going to be an epic tale. It was. Amber Wake is a non stop adventure tale, full of colorful characters, and gripping action. Gabriel (aka, Rasmus Bergman) keeps us on our toes with the seemingly uncertain plans that he is obsessively dedicated to. Miles Jacobs brings loyalty you can count on, but not without a pain in the arse, and Maddox Carbonale lightens the mood with his nonchalant attitude, and unpredictable actions.
There are many aspects to this story that I enjoyed, but overall, the best thing had to be the "Justified Treason." The law isn't always right, and in this case they were way wrong. Rasmus Bergman, and his loyal crew, were not only strong enough to fight back, but wise enough to turn the tides in an unexpectedly favorable direction.
As another pirate I know once said, "It's far more dangerous to betray a friend than to deceive an enemy." And Amber Wake is a thrilling show of the dangers that can ensue under these circumstances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story 25 June 2016
By J Kahele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novel is very slow through the first few chapters, the dialogue is a little long and drawn out at first but as the authors settle in the writing becomes a lot smoother, making the story a lot more interesting and the flow a lot smoother. The story is written in the POV of a pirate named Rasmus Bergman and I found his characterization to be right on spot. The world building was magnificent, it was as if you were sitting next to the characters in each scene. I need this when reading anything fiction to make the story believable.
The well-written lines and plot really grab you and tug you in and you are constantly flipping the pages to see what happens next. If you are looking for an intriguing fast-paced read this is definitely for you.
