Gabriel’s Ghost by Linnae Sinclair was an interesting book. I liked it. It had some minor twists I wasn’t expecting. I liked Accidental Goddess better. But this was a good read.
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 didnâ€™t commitâ€“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 Sullivanâ€“alpha mercenary, smuggler, and rogueâ€“is supposed to be dead. Yet now this seductive ghost from Chazâ€™s past is offering her a ticket to freedomâ€“for a price. Someone in the Empire is secretly breeding jukors: vicious and uncontrollable killing machines that have long been outlawed. Gabriel needs Chaz to help him stop the practice before it decimates Imperial space. The mission means putting their lives on the lineâ€“but the tensions that heat up between them may be the riskiest part of all.
