Book 2 of the Evan Gabriel Trilogy
***** Voted Reviewer's Choice 2011 by The Kindle Book Review: "A Sci-Fi Rumble in the Jungle" Five Stars
Gabriel has always been haunted by his past. Now he must face his past once again.
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, this time to the world where he lost his naval command, and his original team, so many years ago: Eden.
Gabriel will face three distinct threats on Eden: the well-armed terrorist group that has been raiding Eden City, the deadly flora and fauna of the planet itself, and perhaps most ominously, his own haunting memories of his past.
Gabriel's Return continues the epic science fiction adventure trilogy with characters new and old, advanced weapons and technology, devious political intrigue on the moon and Mars, and deadly jungle combat on the unique planet of Eden.

REVIEWS OF GABRIEL'S RETURN
"Loaded with more than enough hi-tech action, but Umstead finds balance and depth by presenting a more complex plot and delves much deeper into his characters... a five-star read" - Tom Clementson, The Kindle Book Review
"You feel as if you are trekking through the jungle on Eden. This series is fantastic and I highly recommend this to all." - Katie Turner, The Kindle Book Review
"The world building accomplished by the author is exceptional. The descriptions of the tactics and equipment used within the story line is spot on."
"The action in this book rocks, complete with super-cool weapons and technology. Umstead takes a complex cast and gives them each a distinct personality that makes the team dynamic just great."

Avid Sci Fi Reader
Gabriel's Return (and others of Steve Ulmstead's novels) are masterfully written and once started, won't easily let you put them down until you've reached the end. Then you're trying to find another of his masterpieces before you know it. Enjoy...and... Thanks, Steve
