    This Book Is Like Crack!

    (Originally posted http://book-addicts.com/blog/2010/08/review-gabriels-ghost-by-linnea-sinclair/)

    I read this book because one of my partners in crime, who will remain anonymous, mentioned Sci Fi romance. Sci Fi romance? Who ever heard of such a thing? So when Suzan lent me her copy of Gabriel's Ghost I found out first-hand that yes, Sci Fi romance does exist!

    The story begins with Captain Chasidah (or Chaz) finding herself wrongfully imprisoned on a very harsh planet where no one is expected to survive long. Not only does this book begin with the right amount of action, tension, and suspense, they are carried throughout its four hundred eighty eight pages consistently and skillfully.

    The adventure and romance between Chaz and Sully from the moment they reunite causes sparks to fly and danger to come at them from every corner. There's even a nice subtle blend of political intrigue thrown in to enhance the depth of the plot as it comes to its very fulfilling and deeply satisfying end.

    What I liked the most about Chaz was she kept her own throughout the story. There was a lot that was thrown at her that tested and even sometimes went against her faith and what she had been trained to believe. Her morals were solid and she fell back on them often in order to do what she felt was right.

    Sully was every bit the beguiling and flirtatious rogue who, like an onion, ended up having even more deeper layers than first glance. Not only was he a great romantic interest for Chaz with sizzling tension, but his story was just as deep as Chaz's and the combination of both was like a root beer to ice-cream: Delicious!

    I recommend this book to all readers who are interested in escaping to a distant galaxy where humans coexist with other alien races and fight to keep the delicate peace. It's a thrilling tale that tests the boundaries of acceptance, tolerance and staying true to oneself no matter what the cost.

    I should also mention this book has earned several awards: Romance Writers of America RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance (2006), Sapphire Award, P.E.A.R.L. (Paranormal Excellence Award for Romantic Literature), and the PRISM Award. All well deserved!

    I was so impressed by this book!

    I picked this on a whim, because I am a fan of both science fiction and romance. Ms. Sinclair gets the highest marks from me in both genres. She has crafted a believable, complex and exciting world of the future and inhabited it with fascinating and fully realized characters. The story was fast-paced, and the plot complex and exciting. The relationships between the characters were particularly well drawn for science fiction, which sometimes tends to rely too much on plot and "world building" and too little on character. The romance aspect of the story was interwoven believably with the action and never seemed to be extraneous or slow the pace of the plot.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Linnea Sinclair got me hooked on romantic sci-fi with her last Bantam Dell release, FINDERS KEEPERS. Now, with GABRIEL'S GHOST, she's outdone herself once again, perfectly balancing the love story of her two main characters with her vivid descriptions of world-building that you're not soon to forget. <BR/><BR/>Pilot Chasidah Bergren was the one-time darling of the Imperial Sixth Fleet, a woman who could take the interstellar patrol ship she commanded in and out of places that no one else would ever dare. She's a strong woman with an independent nature, and her rough childhood had shown her that the only person she could truly depend on was herself. Now, though, it's going to take a lot more than luck and good piloting skills to save her from the situation she's in. Accused of a crime she didn't commit, Chas has been court-martialed, found guilty, and sent to the prison planet of Moabar to serve her sentence. Not only is she an innocent woman forced to interact with hardened criminals, the harsh climate of the planet alone is almost enough to kill her-if the guards don't do it first. And as if things weren't already bad enough, one moment of danger turns into Chas killing a guard in self-defense-and suddenly she is guilty of a crime, with nowhere to run to or hide. <BR/><BR/>Who should show up just when she needs him except for Gabriel "Sully" Sullivan, a ghost from Chas's past that she'd never thought to see again. Actually, all indications pointed to Sully being dead, but the legendary mercenary, smuggler, and all around baddie is alive and well-and intent on rescuing Chas from the dangers of Moabar. Rescue her? Sully? Sure, he'd been known to show up at the strangest times, but it's pretty darn weird for him to arrive on the prison planet just when she needs him the most-and Sully knows it. Sully, though, has his own agenda, mainly getting Chas off of Moabar and coercing her to agree to help him with his plans-without her finding out the secret he's been hiding for years. <BR/><BR/>As sparks fly, like they always have, between these two head-strong individuals, they must avoid the guards of Moabar who set chase, the Imperial Sixth Fleet officers who set Chas up for her fall from grace, and the people behind the breeding jukors, the deadly creatures that Sully is on a mission to destroy. As their feelings go from deep-seated aversion to warm-hearted attraction, Chas and Sully must stay alive long enough to clear Chas's good name and reputation, and for Sully to complete his mission. <BR/><BR/>Ms. Sinclair does a perfect job of blending sci-fi, technology, world-building, and romance in GABRIEL'S GHOST. For all lovers of science fiction romance, this book is not one to be missed. If you're like me, when you're finished you'll be eagerly anticipating her next release, AN ACCIDENTAL GODDESS.

    I loved, loved, loved this book!!!!!

    Gabriel¿s Ghost is a fantastic book!!! It¿s a puzzle of compelling pieces set into a beautifully finished, futuristic landscape--one you can¿t wait to finish. The tale enthralled me with its constant action, adventure, and a gripping love story. Linnea Sinclair has mastered the difficult skill of weaving a futuristic world with a detailed science fiction setting that can¿t be topped¿ all of this¿ balanced with an equally captivating story. Don¿t miss Linnea Sinclair¿s Gabriel¿s Ghost!!!
