After a decade of piloting interstellar patrol ships, former captain Chasidah Bergren, onetime pride of the Sixth Fleet, finds herself court-martialed for a crime she didn't commit and shipped off to a remote prison planet from which no one ever escapes. But when she kills a brutal guard in an act of self-defense, someone even more dangerous emerges from the shadows. Gabriel Sullivan alpha mercenary, smuggler, and rogue is supposed to be dead. Yet now this seductive ghost from Chazs past is offering her a ticket to freedom for a price. Someone in the Empire is secretly breeding jukors: vicious and uncontrollable killing machines that have long been outlawed.

The mission means putting their lives on the line but the tensions that heat up between them may be the riskiest part of all.

    Story
    "Barbera Cartland in space - me in hell"

    This is a "Barbera Cartland" story packed in scifi, and it fails miserably.

    The language used quickly becomes annoying with tons of repetition. She keeps repeating his full name, his obisidian eyes, and the Words hush and angel become so aggrevating that I zoned out. They are used repeatedly, along with other words.

    The way the author uses one Word form to describe a situation, i.e. "Warmth. Hope. Relief." just does not work. Instead the situation becomes shallow.

    The way they keep Falling in love, and split up is like an old Barbera Cartland novel. Some like it I know - I do not.

    I really liked Dina Perlman narrating Jane Carver, but here she ends up making the male hero sound condescending towards the lead person. But I do not think that anyone can do it better, as there is nothing to work with.

    The story is so black and white that it becomes ridiculous. It is a story best suited in a weekly magazine as a novel.

    I will not be listening to book 2.

    Story
    "Audiobook better than actual book"
    Would you listen to Gabriel’s Ghost again? Why?

    I would listen to it again if I were doing a re-read of the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love scenes.


    What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

    I wasn't planning on re-reading any of her books, but this was on sale at Audible and from the sample it sounded pretty good. Another example of an audiobook making me enjoy the book more. Dina Pearlman is the narrator of this book. When I read it initially I didn't know what all the hoopla was about this book. It was just okay to me. But the narration was so wonderful that I ended up really liking the book and have upped my rating from 3 stars to 4 stars. I just wish that Games of Command was an audiobook because I'm struggling through that one right now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "Meh"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, definitely did not hold my interests. Moved way too slow, way too often.


    What could Linnea Sinclair have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not a bad plot, but the way the story was told was very boring.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration wasn't bad, but could've been much better.


    Do you think Gabriel’s Ghost needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Either way I will not listen to the next book.

    "I liked this."

    This started out slow but it got much better as it went. Sci-fi isn't one of my usual haunts but this was suggested by a friend so I gave it a try. I don't think I'll listen to the next ones but I will read them. I like the characters and the plot lines.

    "I won't be reading the rest of the series."

    I love SciFi but this was just not my cup of tea! I did not like the Characters. The story was so-so.
