Jeff Suwak’s Beyond the Tempest Gate is a fantastic read.
Because this Authors mastery of the written English language and understanding of crafting an interesting and entertaining tale cannot be denied or missed.
If he were a chef this would be one of the most delicious meals you have ever eaten.
The luscious details in the descriptions fill your gullet and make you want to rub your tummy while humming MMMMMMM.
A classic tale of heroism on a quest for greatness takes a twist as you find yourself not only not liking the hero, but as the story unfolds rooting for his failure.
Young Gabriel can be summed up in one word. Hubris.
Exaggerated pride or self-confidence.
Just to put it into perspective.
In ancient Greece hubris was punishable by the gods because it was considered a crime against the gods, thinking you were equal to or above divinity.
Our fanatical Gabriel fulfilled my twisted need for the unusual.
Usually the hero starts off unlikable but through trial and strife grow to be the Men (or Women) the world can be proud of.
Not Gabriel even his most grand sacrifice is done only to fulfill his own needs and further his own agenda.
