"Take a trip via hyper drive..."

In another world, criminals are given the choice -- go to the harsh prison world of Moabar or death. Most chose death. Captain Chasidah Bergren (Chaz) wasn't given the choice. Fighting for her very life she was surprised when an old rival, thought to be dead, boldly rescues her and offers freedom from Moabar in exchange for the personal knowledge she has of the space station she grew up on.

Smuggler Gabriel Ross Sullivan (Sully) is trying to stop an illegal operation that is killing innocent people and could start a war. While the two had come close to becoming lovers, they had always been on opposite sides of the law. With Sully's supposed death and Chaz getting wrongfully accused of a crime she didn't commit, the two are working together to stop something greater than they could even comprehend and with their past history, thus it is natural that love should flair between the two. However Chaz must trust Sully when allies become enemies and enemies become strong allies. Even with the turmoil that she finds herself in, some secrets that Sully hides will come at high prices, and Chaz must trust in the man she is coming to love as she faces everything she fears the most.

AWESOME book! The only thing I had a hard time adjusting too was the fact that the book is written in first person meaning you only know Chaz's thoughts, as it is really her story. However, while everything is falling to pieces in her life, you get to find out why the story is in first person, and WOW! Awesome, awesome book. I really liked both our hero and heroine. Even though Chaz has been betrayed by her government that imprisoned her, she isn't a programmed robot and has a sense of humor. Sully is a hero that while seeming to border on having a mild case of schizophrenia (you get to find out why as well) is a very caring individual, and such a remarkable man. His constant companion, a blind Stolorth named Ren -- who is only one of the fears that Chaz must overcome, is a very interesting humanoid worthy of his own story!

GABRIEL'S GHOST has every thing you could want in a book, whether its fantasy, science fiction or romance. The book takes off almost at the beginning, and Ms Baker has a wonderful writing ability for misdirection. I am really looking forward to reading more of her books. So take a trip via hyper drive, travel the galaxy and be ready for a novel like no other, as GABRIEL'S GHOST will amaze you too!

Imperial patrolship captain Chasidah Bergren has more trouble than she needs. Stripped of command in a sham court- martial and sent to the harsh prison world of Moabar, her life can't possibly get any worse.

Until she's rescued by smuggler Gabriel Ross Sullivan, her former nemesis and almost lover. A dead man with a mission. He offers her freedom in exchange for her help in stopping an illegal genetics experiment that's already claimed far too many lives. And could place the Empire on the brink of civil war.

But Chaz doesn't know that Sully's a ghost with a deadly, dark secret. A secret she was trained to hate and fear; one she may have to risk her life and her heart to protect.
