The 28th Gate: Volume 1 Summary

“A gunslinger adventure with good, clean fun!”

With a stolen experimental starship and a pair of advanced synthetic limbs, he isn’t your average bounty hunter.

When he accepted the job on a backwater planet, Hunter thought it would be easy. He and his partner just had to track down a missing researcher. But when they find her, she’s fled a quarter of the way around the massive ring of twenty-seven gates and Hunter realizes all is not as he was told.

That simple realization, and Hunter’s drive for retribution, kick off a series of adventures leading to the most important discovery since the fall of the Gate Age—and put him in direct confrontation with the corp he’s been running from for the past 10 revolutions.

Set in a far distant future, The 28th Gate is a series of tales that will appeal to fans of space marines, space fleets, and military hard science fiction. The series consists of eight volumes spread across four seasons telling the story of Hunter’s struggles against the AAA corporation that created him. Each volume contains six episodic novelettes, each with the action, character, and plotting of a complete story all crammed into an espresso-like package, while each season chronicles a different arc in the overall epic.

Fun & Fantastic!5 star

Nice intro to the characters & setting of a great story!55


The pace never stops5 star

Even into the next book - action never stops. Small mysteries of ??what happened? are so good you don’t want to know just yet... and so the interwoven history of stars and personalities fall into place at a slow speed to balance the breakneck hunt for the next bounty. All the elements for a classic story are gathered but the author never lets you get too comfortable - never allows the cliche or predictable. ...and there is a lot !!! of tech in nailed down, take it apart and make it work detail. Real in ways I could not imagine. Full Immersion.55


The 28th Gate: Volume 14 star

A nice light read. Research is evident in the writing. Lots of action, lots of guns. I’m not fond of the fact that it’s setting up a damsel situation with Katherine or that this book ends with a cliff hanger, but I quickly and easily took a liking to Gloria.45


Bravo!5 star

Bravo! I finally found a series I would gladly pay for. This author is on the same level as Stephen R Donaldson. The details show that the author has actually been there and knows what he is talking about. Amazing writing.55

I’m telling you this from the future..5 star

Well, kinda.. I didn’t write a review after I read this originally because I wanted to see how it would continue, or change. I’m back after reading the fourth book in the series to tell you “It’s good”. I’d reviewed after the third book, but couldn’t help reading the next one. Without spoiling anything, I just felt a reader deciding if they should get into this series should know if it holds up. I’ve read a few series where the author changed their writing style or character focus a book or two in. If you read a sample of this first book and like it, you should be able to enjoy far into the series. I’m going to read the 5th book now. This series is my happy escape from reality.55
