My name is Zackery Arbela. I live in New England and am the author of a fantasy adventure novel entitled GAEBREL'S GAMBLE, the first in a projected series called THE NINE SUNS.

Nine Suns there are, nine watchers, nine masters. The worlds their children. The races their seed, the soul the shards of their intellect, the Empyrean the workshop of their divine labors. Who among us has the wisdom to hear their voices, to know their words written? Who can hear the Greater Voice beyond, the One who speaks to the Suns as they speak to us?
The Nine Suns. Where empires rise and fall in a storm of gunpowder, swords and sorcery. Where fortune awaits those with courage to seize it. It is an age of adventure...and an easy place to die.
Gaebrel is a wandering rogue always one step ahead of death, living by his wits and the edge of his blade. Taken prisoner by a cruel pirate queen, he bargains for his freedom by promising to steal a mighty treasure. Standing beside him in this venture are his fellow renegades: An exiled prince turned merchant, a former priest seeking redemption for his sins, a mysterious sharpshooter and hunter from a distant world. And two mighty warriors, one yearning for vengeance against the pirates who have enslaved his world, the other seeking to redeem his lost honor through glorious death in battle.
With this motley crew of desperate men, he sets sail on the boundless Empyrean, sword in hand and betrayal all around. Yet there is another who seeks the treasure: Ulzarad the Neverborn, who gains his power by devouring the souls of his victims. He will stop at nothing to possess it, destroying all who keep him from his prize.
Sword in one hand, pistol in the other, and a smile on his face...Gaebrel faces his greatest gamble. He will turn the tables on his captors and steal the Sparrow, the fastest ship in the universe. He will face betrayal, and charge headlong onto the killing fields of a war torn world, risking his immortal soul to save the life of a comrade.
War ripples across the Empyrean. Worlds gather their fleets for battle, while Gaebrel races against time to win freedom and fortune. A desperate gamble, GAEBREL'S GAMBLE...and the winner takes all.
