Overview

GABRIEL'S REVENGE
Book 3 of the Evan Gabriel Science Fiction Adventure Trilogy

---

A missile has no conscience. It is an inanimate steel object: cold, emotionless. But once ignited, it burns white hot inside, and cannot be shut off. Fired in combat, it has but one objective: the total destruction of its intended target. And it will only stop when its objective has been achieved, or it runs out of fuel.

Not all missiles are made of steel.

North American Federation Navy Commander Evan Gabriel thought it was over. Returning from a mission on the far-off world of Eden, he finds that Mars is in a state of political upheaval. Two major dome cities are now under the control of ambitious and ruthless men backed by the scheming South American Republic. Friends are in trouble, Renay Gesselli is missing, and the future of a world is in flux while rival governments bicker behind closed doors.

From the ice-bound planet of Poliahu, to the dangerous jungle world of Eden, and back to his adopted home of Mars, Evan Gabriel has witnessed death follow him. Now, he's turning the tables, and no force would stand in his way.

Reviews

"Umstead can write an action-packed adventure story better than most. He is an artist in designing a high-tech battlefield and weaving in the human element with his character's depth and color. If you like action in a science fiction setting then you really need to pick this up from book one and give it a shot." - Tom Clementson, The Kindle Book Review

"Umstead delivers his best action packed SciFi thriller yet. Tightly written and beautifully plotted, Umstead's concluding story is the type of page-turner that keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. You will cheer at the victories and cry with the failures. An absolute joy to read." - R.B. Wood, author of The Prodigal's Foole

    I really enjoy a character driven story. Steve Umstead delivers one. As a teenager, I read Heinlein, Asimov, Clark, Bradbury and the reason I read them all was character. 40 years later, I still prefer a "character" driven story. I hope to read more by Umstead and maybe some more about Gabriel? I enjoyed all 3 books and look forward to more.

    A fun read

    Not the typical military scifi I read but really enjoyed the detailed and original story and recommend it to any who enjoy the genre. The books focus more on the setting and characters than the specific science which makes for an imersive fast moving story.

    Great end to the trilogy. The balance between space action and surface action was perfect. A quick fun read.

    An Amazing Ending to an Epic Trilogy

    Evan Gabriel has foiled the SARs plans yet again but they have something he wants very badly and will do anything to get: Renay.

    Rescuing her will take all of his skills and the help of his loyal team. But the SAR will stop at nothing to control Mars and to get rid of the thorn in their side. But this particular thorn has no intention of giving up. And he comes packing some serious heat.

    Through tragedy and triumph, Umstead weaves this tale of a man who is sick of death. But to save the woman he loves, he will have to visit his old friend once again.

    I am sad to see the end of this trilogy, and yet couldn't put it down in order to savoy every last word and draw out the enjoyment as long as possible. I doubt I'm the only one who thinks this trilogy will look mighty good on the big screen. Hat's off to Umstead for finishing up this amazing trilogy with a bang! I look forward to more from this author!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was engaging and the science was very interesting. I felt like most of what he wrote about could happen and that is science fiction at it's best.

    "tech" seems believable and is easy to understand. The author does a wonderful job of explaining the "gear" without going into boring detail. Fast paced action. I highly recommend this collection to sci-fi buffs and Ialso think war story enthusiasts would enjoy this, too.

    Average Space Marine Series

    Quick reading space marine series. No really imaginative elements with regards to plot, alien worlds, characters, or technology. Given the dearth of really good current science fiction, this is entertaining.

    Great read!

    I enjoyed the trilogy from beginning to end, This was an action packed series of stories about well trained soldiers with high tech gear and enhanced mental communicators, lots of well thought out battle plans with a plot line strong enough to warrant the intesity of the fight scenes,

    Like riding your favorite roller-coaster with hands in the air! Gabriel takes his lumps like a true champion and always dishes out more than he gets! Almost sad to reach the end...hoping for a new series!

    A fun scifi romp in our own solar system!

    This is the third book in the Evan Gabriel trilogy. I highly recommend reading the first 2 before approaching this book.

    Gabriel's Revenge is a fun scifi action novel that starts on Mars and takes you back to the Moon and ends on the tranquil beaches of the Caribbean. The action is intense throughout the book making it hard to put down. The weapons, while not unique, are familiar to any scifi fan. I especially enjoyed the space rescue operations. I was easily able to visualize the operation and I think the author did well in explaining the potential problems that could arrive during the situation. Finally, the connections to his past tie up all three books very well.

    My primary criticism is with the strong relationships with the supporting characters. While Gabriel feels responsible for each and every death, the connections he makes with others are very deep and they nearly sacrifice everything for him. I never develop a strong connection to this character so some of the response feel forced.
