The prose is polished and beautiful. Every single word felt like it had been carefully selected, like it needed be a part of the story. The imagery and strange surroundings that Gabriel eventually finds himself in were extremely well written, not at all the generic sort you sometimes encounter in dark fantasy. Some of the nasty, creepy obstacles that Gabriel encounters just had me grinning at their inventiveness, their uniqueness.

If you’re looking for something new, for a contemplative and entertaining work of literature in a genre saturated with escapism, check out Beyond The Tempest Gate by Jeff Suwak. You won’t be disappointed.
Jeff says that his intent in writing his novella was “to apply literary sensibilities to a fantasy story,” a goal that he has admirably accomplished.

No matter what genres you favor, if you enjoy a story set in a strange world, high conflict and nonstop suspense – with an ending you will never guess ahead of time – get a copy of Beyond the Tempest Gate. The hardest thing to believe about this book is that it’s Jeff Suwak’s debut. The man has a future in storytelling.

I enjoy my books with a fun plot and full of deeper, more ponderous themes, and that’s exactly what you get here. What makes it all even more incredible is how Suwak manages to play with these weighty themes despite the short length. Bravo, sir.
I cannot say enough good things about Jeff Suwak’s writing. You will see his name in the future.

This story touched my heart, pulled on the hope I once had as child, but then caused me to peer into a mirror and question whether the quests I’ve ventured have been my true calling or had I deceived myself into believing a lie. Not many stories touch my soul.
