Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling review by author Cristi Taijeron.

Hello to Y’all good people,

And yes, it is “y’all”, not ya’ll. I was born, bombed, and bedded here in the South, so I know. If another Southerner tells you it’s “ya’ll”, they’ve been listenin’ to a Yankee.

I don’t promote my book on here. You may have noticed that. But, it’s had some great reviews. On Amazon it currently has 4.6 Stars from 26 reviews, and on Goodreads it’s a 4.54 with 39 ratings.

Below is a review by Cristi Taijeron, author of 13 pirate books, with another on the way this year, a long awaited sequel of my book Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling (click to go to Amazon). I chose this review for the very reason she is an author of the same genre, and thus would be more critical. She gave the book 5 stars.

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 women meet Pirates who may or may not stand in their way of destiny. 6 Books on Sale for $6.

Ivory Shepard and her cousins enter a life of challenges as they begin a journey that leads to piracy, danger, revenge, death, and romance.

As Ivory becomes the Pirate Queen The Razor, the cousins meet men who bring romance to their lives for the first time. There is a man of noble birth who defies the meaning of the word pirate. A man who is betrayed and exiled. A man who is as mysterious as the night. And a man who brings a gentle romance not thought to exist among pirates.

Ivory, Miranda, Cassandra, and Keara are more than a match for the men that enter their lives, both good and evil. Through all of their adventures Ivory’s cousins know one thing, that as long as Ivory breathes, she will make certain they are all safe, and any cost. Even if it costs her heart or her soul.

I guarantee you will enjoy these books. Amber Wake has a slightly different tone than the others as it is about Gabriel Wallace and his journey to becoming the pirate captain Rasmus Bergman.

.99 per book at Amazon for your Kindle, with over 2000 pages combined.

My personal favorites are of course Amber Wake, since I did co-author it with PS Bartlett, and The Blue Diamond. Diamond was the first of the series written and just begged for a series of back stories because there was so much in the developed world Bartlett had created. The other 5 books successfully explain all you need to know.

Reviews for Amber Wake

“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.” Ravyne 5 Stars

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.Sarina 5 stars

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.
Author J Kahele 4 stars.

NEW COVERS REVEAL for all of the Razor’s Pirate Tales are here!

It’s #COVERREVEAL Day!

Not just for my co-authored book with PS Bartlett but also…

All New Covers for The Razor’s Adventures Series are Here!

And what can top that? The #CoverReveal of her much anticipated and longed for brand new book in the series coming out soon titled Beyond The Ruby Moon!

Please remember to share this post on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Hulu, VH1 Storytellers, (I think you get the meaning here.) and pretty much everywhere you can.

The Kindle covers are available now and the paperback will make it through Amazon’s system momentarily.

I love these covers, and am particularly fond of the Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling cover. Not a bias or anything, just a simple observational opinion. If you click on each image you get to see them on a page alone and they look so amazing.

Here they are in order of reading, so far. (Click HERE to visit PS Bartlett’s Amazon Author Page to find all of the titles. My page has books that I am included as an author such as Amber Wake.)

Ivory Dawn is a novella introducing the main heroine, and titular character of Ivory Shepard, her cousins, the life they came from, and the life they throw themselves headfirst into.

Ivory Dawn Cover 2019

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling introduces Gabriel Wallace as he transforms from life as a vaunted Captain in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy to becoming the man who will be known as Big Red Rasmus Bergman, a man that plays a pivotal part in the Razor fulfilling her dreams.

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling Cover 2019Demons & Pearls continues with Ivory and her cousins finding themselves in the middle of the pirate world and doing whatever it takes to prove they are not the property of any man.

Demons & Pearls Cover 2019Jaded Tides is an exciting story of Ivory and her cousins growing ever closer to their dreams becoming reality, but at what cost.

Jaded Tides Cover 2019Beyond The Ruby Moon is the NEW book to be released soon. I’m reading it now and am so happy to finally get to see what happens between Ivory and Razz, and what’s going on with her cousins, three beautiful and intelligent women proving they are just as wily in the ways of the Caribbean as their protective cousin.

Beyond The Ruby Moon Cover 2019The Blue Diamond The Razor’s Edge was the first book about Ivory that PS Bartlett wrote. I read it and was immediately hooked, so much so that I jumped on her bandwagon and coattails and signed on to co-write Amber Wake, and an as yet to be completed or named possible sequel. It seems the blonde haired author lady and I both got it in our blood to start writing the pirate life again at the same time. It had to be a sign,and we know any successful pirate knows how to read the signs.

Review my BOOK! If you liked it, that is.

Did you get my book Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling when it was free on Amazon? Have you read it yet? Did you like it? If you did, could you write a quick little review about why you like it at Amazon.com for me?

If you are in another country and go to Amazon.com you might be asked if you want to go to your home country, say no. The reason I say that is because the more reviews I get in one place the better it looks. A lot of reviews will sell the book. (Just click the title above to go to Amazon.com.)

The review doesn’t have to be professional or long like I do. Simply stating exactly why you like it is what a potential reader wants to hear.

Oh, and if you didn’t like the book . . . you never read this post. 😉 It never happened.

Only 4 Days Left to Get Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling #FREE!

My Birthday Week Celebration continues. When I asked Peggy about putting the book up for FREE on my birthday, she said she was already wanting to do it. Little did we know that in less than 24 hours hundreds of people would download it. Okay, maybe we did know. We knew people wanted to read the book, but even our friends can’t always afford to pay.

But seriously, we are very pleased we are doing so well. If you have already downloaded your FREE copy, share this post with your reader, friends, twitter followers, facebook friends, google+ friends. Anyone you can think of that would like a FREE book. I did a lot of research for this book, spent a lot of time writing it. It went through three drafts before I sent it off to Peggy for her turn at it. It’s nice to see people going after it now, even when FREE. I know not everyone picks up a FREE book. I pass them by when I get my daily emails about them. It could be the cover, the description, or the overall reviews are not good enough.

Peggy made this cover herself, a theme that runs through all her pirate series. The reviews? 4.8 out of 5 on both Amazon and GoodReads. 16 and 15 reviews respectively.

Want to read this book?Five Gold Stars“P.S. Bartlett and Ronovan Hester’s historical adventure novel, Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling, The Razor’s Adventures Pirate Tales, is an exciting and fast-paced story set in the early eighteenth century. As I read of Captain Wallace’s trial and expulsion from the Royal Navy and his decision to turn to piracy, I was reminded of Sabatini’s classic pirate adventure tale, Captain Blood. The action scenes in this novel are vivid and filled with sounds and images, and the plot is compelling and complex. The authors’ characters are marvelously portrayed, especially that of Miles Jacobs, whose loyalty and concern for his friend prompts him to put everything at risk. Amber Wake is well-written and the plot is a delight. Anyone who’s ever enjoyed a good pirate movie (and who hasn’t?) or found themselves wrapped up in a classic adventure novel will have a grand time reading this authentic and suspenseful tale. It’s highly recommended.”

Keep a watch for me and let me know. Thank you.

Hello Everyone,

If you see my book available anywhere but Amazon, please let me know. I’ve only given permission for it to be on that site. I’m finding it has been pirated and am quite unhappy about it. As many people may know, one of my best friends is an attorney, and I am very unhappy that my very first book is out there like this. Considering I have e-copies I want to give away very soon, this really is annoying. I’m pretty easy to get along with in regards to people reading the book, but stealing is something else. Interviewers and the like have received copies and I know they are honest. I know people can do a lot electronically to recreate the product, but it’s just wrong. This book took a year to get to the finished product.

Thank you and Much Respect

Ronovan

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling by P.S. Bartlett and Ronovan Hester.

10 Questions for Ronovan Hester

With only being able to reblog once, and having done that with this interview to my author site, I’ve copied and pasted the article here. It isn’t as nicely formatted as author Vashti Quiroz-Vega has it on her site, and I suggest everyone visit the original for the full experience by clicking HERE.

Hello everyone! I have a treat for you today. I’m an avid reader and self proclaimed bookworm and to me as well as others like me it is always fun when a new, intriguing book is released. Do you enjoy fascinating stories about pirates? Well then you’ll love The Razor’s Adventures Pirate Tales by P.S. Bartlett. I have featured P.S. Bartlett and her books on this blog and you can check out that post here.

Today’s focus will be on the wonderful and talented Ronovan Hester since P.S. Bartlett’s recent installment in The Razor’s Adventure series, Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling is co-authored by him. This is not your typical pirate story since Ronovan puts his love of History and his 20+ years of writing experience to use in his debut Historical Adventure set in 1705 England, American Colonies, and Caribbean.

Amber Wake-Ronovan Hester-pirates

Ronovan’s Bio:

Ronovan Hester is a writer living near Athens, Ga, home of his alma mater, The University of Georgia, where he received a B.S.Ed. in History Education. Ronovan puts his love of history and his over 20 years of writing experience to use in his debut Historical Adventure set in 1705 England, American Colonies, and Caribbean co-authored with P.S. Bartlett.

Ronovan’s devotion to history and writing sometimes competes with his love of tacos and fresh fruit. At times, all his favorite things work hand in hand in mouth during long binge writing sessions that have been known to last nonstop for over 24 hours. Rather than see a sleep disorder as a hindrance, he uses the time for creative purposes or watching old TV shows on online.

Ronovan enjoys putting elements of history, if only as nods to the past, in all of his book projects. He currently instills that love of history and learning in his son daily as he helps him through his college prep courses, meaning hours of homework every night, even while not yet a teenager–his son, not Ronovan. Now if he could find a very good mute for that trumpet his son just began learning.

10 Fun Facts About Ronovan

One of your 10 fun facts is that you love to cook. If P.S. Bartlett arrived at your house for dinner what would you make for her?

I would go Southern. I make very good Southern Fried Chicken, biscuits, and I these potato wedges that I batter then fry, then oven bake. It’s something I created, and everyone loves them. I fry them enough to get them brown and slightly crisp, then into the oven to finish cooking over a rack to let the excess oil come out. I cover them with foil so as not to let the brown much more or burn. You end up with a crispy on the outside, completely done on the inside oven fry. You spice the batter how you like it and either make or use your favorite condiment if you want to dip them in something. There would of course be sweet iced tea. For dessert a peach cobbler, since I live in the Peach State.

Another fun fact about you is that you love the sound and feel of the ocean at night. Have you seen the movie ‘JAWS’?

I did. I also saw the Jaws 3D in the movie theaters when it first came out with some older cousins.

One more fun fact about you is that you enjoy eating lunch sitting under a tree while watching and listening to birds. If you could be any bird which would you be?

I think I’m pretty much a Robin if you look at me. I can’t escape that.

Ronovanwrites-The Writer Next Door

10 Questions for Ronovan Hester

1/ Tell me about your book

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling is a historical adventure beginning in a sailor’s pub in 1705 London and then taking to the seas. Court-martialed due to the events in the pub, Captain Gabriel Wallace of the Royal Navy finds aide with his former crew who mutiny against the Royal Navy, just in time to avoid capture by his enemies. Wallace has more than one mission/objective during his war against the men behind his disgrace but only he is aware of it. This secret causes some problems as the story unfolds and Wallace and his men go after the biggest haul a pirate has ever attempted in the waters of the Caribbean, all in the name of revenge and loyalty.

Reads like a riveting story! And not your typical pirate story.

2/ What inspired you to write this book?

After many conversations with PS Bartlett, the creator of the Ivory Shepard world of pirates, the discussion came around to her thoughts of a sequel to her very first pirate novel, The Blue Diamond: The Razor’s Edge. A book I enjoyed a great deal. I had the idea of her writing a prequel series of books of how her main character became a lady pirate captain, while I wrote the book that would currently be the beginning of the entire series and become known as Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling. By the way, not only does Microsoft Word object to the use of lady in this paragraph, but Ivory Shepard would as well.

Ah, ha, ha. I guess ‘female’ is the word that comes to mind then. The idea of a ‘prequel series’ telling how the main character comes to be, who she is in the original series is quite brilliant.

*Clarification from Ronovan: I should have worded the part about the prequel ideas coming up between PS Bartlett and I about the same time. It was an idea to expand the world she created and bring in more attention to the character of Ivory Shepard. The Blue Diamond was a great book.

3/ Why team up with another writer, instead of writing this book on your own?

I looked at it as a two-fold thing. One, I would be helping PS Bartlett get one more book out in her series. In this book, I could give a different perspective, a different voice than that of Ivory Shepard. There needed to be that different voice. Second, I’m a historian and love research. Thus, I saw this as a challenge of sorts. Just as I challenged myself to write a Southern Romance, completely out of my comfort zone, I did this, which was a new genre for me. I do historical fiction more around WWI and WWII.

Although not a historian I share your love of research. I’m happy you took this on and wish you continued success.

4/ Which is your favorite character in the book? Why?

I would have to say Gabriel Wallace is my favorite because I put so much of me into him. Some of that’s been taken out because of the collaboration, but I know where I show up. People that know me will know what I wrote and not. The styles mesh but my personal character is different from some of what Wallace ends up as. Gimby, the helmsman is a good one too.

5/ Which character in the book would you not get along with? Why?

That’s a tough one. There are times, due to circumstances a couple of people are difficult to deal with. One is somewhat obvious when you begin reading the book, and the other grows into someone less than a joy to know.

Very diplomatic answer.

6/ Finish these statements:

-If I wasn’t afraid I would move to a better climate part of the world with a beach and a nice ocean view, although I’m not really afraid of much.

Florida awaits!

-Someday, I want to be successful enough at writing to pay the bills and maybe help form some sort of foundation to fight some children’s problem.

7/ You have multiple personalities, describe some of them.

First, I’m not sure how you knew that. Second, I’m a workaholic one minute and a total veg the next. That might be part of some health issues though. I have the funny guy side, then the serious the next. Yes, I’m a Gemini.

I pay attention, Ron.

ronovan-hester-and-the-fish

8/ List 5 adjectives to describe yourself?

  • Hopeful
  • Romantical (My creation of a word.)
  • Caring
  • Idealistic
  • Inquisitive

Yes! I agree with all five. I’ve come to see all of these in you and your writing.

9/ How have your physical problems affected your writing?

That’s a big one. I could make a long list of negative things, but I look to the end result being I use the time I have to write as much as I can, which at times is a lot. If I had normal health I wouldn’t have a book out right now. I see this as one of those things where God took an extreme bad thing and used it for an extreme good in my achieving getting a book published which can show others anything can happen if you work at it.

That’s a very positive and inspiring way to look at a traumatic experience in your life. I love your outlook. 

10/ How is Captain Gabriel Wallace like or unlike Captain Jack Sparrow?

The two are about as opposite as you can get. Wallace is a trained captain in the Royal Navy, member of the upper class of society, actually a member of the House of Lords, well educated, and has a certain level of morality that dictates a lot of his actions. He doesn’t mind fun and jokes but his focus is his mission and the well-being of his crew. Wallace is not really a pirate, but more a soldier at war with a given enemy.

Synopsis

The autumn of 1705 brings Royal Navy Captain Gabriel Wallace to face off against an enemy within the ranks of the Admiralty itself that threatens his career, his reputation, his family, and something even more far-reaching in its plot.

Court-martialed and with Admiral Chambers, the mastermind fearfully known as the Chambers of Hell, out for his destruction, Wallace finds he has allies willing to face the might of the mightiest power on earth, with some allies in the most unlikely of places. The crew of his former command, the Majesty’s Venture, mutinies from the Royal Navy. With capture by his enemies close behind, Wallace agrees to become captain once again.

With a ship at his command, Captain Gabriel Wallace sets out to fulfill his mission, the completeness of which only he knows.

Now a pirate by situation, Wallace sets out for the Colonies and the Caribbean. Will his crew remain loyal as they leave the rule of the Royal Navy behind? Will his lifelong friend, Miles Jacobs, follow Wallace blindly without knowing the whole story? Finally, will the young Lieutenant Maddox Carbonale stay under the command of Wallace or have plans to lead instead?

With these questions in his thoughts, Gabriel Wallace wages war on Chambers and goes after the largest haul in the history of the Spanish Main. Whom does Wallace meet along the way? To whom are his loyalties to: vengeance or something more powerful?

I Want You to Host me!

Do you want to help me spread the word about my novel?

I want people from everywhere,  . . . I WANT YOU!

There is every kind of marketing gimmick you can think of, but the only sure fire way of getting people to know about a book is by people sharing it with others. Friends tell friends about it.

You read it and like it, tell people about it.

You do an actual review, share it.

Do a review. Hopefully it’s a good one.

Always review as a reader, not as a writer or author.

If you want to help by being a host, fill out the form below.

I’ve been to 15 sites so far. I’ve done How To articles, Book Excerpts, Answered Book and Random Questions, Provided a Stock post about the book.

I like answering questions. People always come up with some that are different. If you’ve read the book and have questions, then you can ask them, and some I might answer as long as it doesn’t give away the story too much.

I have two previous hosts that want a return visit. Now I need you.

I’ll keep at this until we sell a lot of books and get a lot of Book Reviews. The more reviews we have on Amazon.com the better they will show us in lists and emails to Amazon customers.
