Daily Kindle Bargain - Gabriel's Return by Steve Umstead

Gabriel's Return (Book 2 of the Evan Gabriel Trilogy) by Steve Umstead is available on Kindle for $2.99.

Book 1, Gabriel's Redemption, is currently on sale for just 99 cents.


On the far-off icebound planet of Poliahu, North American Federation Navy Commander Evan Gabriel suffered the loss of several team members in order to free a native species and save his brother. Now he is being called away on a new mission by a friend in trouble, and by a name from his distant past. He and his surviving team must again travel across the galaxy to the planet where he lost his naval command, and his original team, so many years ago: Eden.

Evan Gabriel must face three distinct threats on Eden: the well-armed terrorist group that has been raiding Eden City, the dangerous planet itself, and his own haunting memories of his past.

Gabriel's Return continues the epic science fiction/adventure trilogy with characters new and old, devious political intrigue on the moon and Mars, and deadly jungle combat on Eden.

From the Reviewers:

"You could say I got a sweet tooth for hi-tech adventure. Gabriel's Return delivered. I picked up the first, Gabriel's Redemption, which hit me with a John Carpenter style wad of gritty adventure. I was very pleased to read the sequel. The book hit all the right marks while cooking up enough fresh takes on the genre to keep me scrolling to the end."
--M. Pallante

"Umstead did a perfect job of inserting enough information from the first book where needed to remind one who has read the first, or fill in those who haven't with enough knowledge to learn the whole story. The sci-fi toys we all love so well live up to the expectation and are believable. I was impressed with the details of the harsh environment on Eden and its inhabitants. I could visualize it as if I was there while reading."
--Glenn R. Skinner
