"As Chaz and Sully work together against the Galactic Empire they fall in love"
In the far distant future, Earth is part of the Galactic
Empire; a confederation encompassing many worlds and many
species, some humanoid and some not, though all are
sentient. As captain of an interstellar patrol ship, Chaz
Bergren was proud to serve the empire until the day she was
court-martialed for failing to obey instructions she claims
she never received.
She was sentenced to life imprisonment on the penal planet
Moabar and was without hope until Sully, a mercenary she
tangled with over the years, rescued her. He needs her
expertise as a pilot and her knowledge of the workings of
the empire to see if any forbidden genetic engineering
experiments are taking place and if they are, stop them
using any means at their disposable. As Chaz and Sully work
together, the pair falls in love. Even when Chaz learns
some things about Sully that the empire taught were taboo
and frightening, their feelings are strong enough to
overcome the empire's prejudice.
GABRIEL'S GHOST is an excellent science fiction romance
that will remind readers of Anne McCaffrey's "Freedom"
series. Megan Sybil Baker is a fresh new voice in the sub-
genre and she brings fresh ideas to the novel. Chaz and
Sully's adventures continue in the author's next book and
it will be great to be reunited with these idealistic,
realistic and colorful characters. There is a secondary
character in this novel, a humanoid with gills, who
deserves to have his own story told because he is such a
complex and admirable character.
