I've probably read this book 4 times, the audible version was a great addition. I did not realize how much I had filtered out of the side characters. The alligator tale was so much better with all the voices. I didn't even read the Samari book just got the audible version.
I would say I enjoyed half of the time I spent listening to this series.
Leave out 95% of the raunchy sex and continue to develop the characters.
Yes, not my favorite however.
I would read some reviews before making that decision.
I purchased this entire series before listening to any of the books. It was a big mistake and a lesson learned the hard way. I read the description and saw "best selling author" and was not prepared for what I heard. Please read the reviews from others before spending your money. I loved HALF of each book; the actual Ghostwalker characters were appealing and their abilities interesting. If 95% of the nauseating, tiresome, and repetitive sex scenes had been replaced with additional story lines I'd be a huge fan. I felt like the author cheated by repeating the same sexual encounter over and over to fill out each book. I am not opposed to a bit of romance but these ad nauseam descriptions prompted me to perfect my ability to fast forward through the audiobook.
Not much to the story. I loved the narration by Tom Stechschutte. I will continue listening to these series because of him.
Shadow game is a ride that is fun from start to finish. Not a cerebral book or one that requires a lot of attention, but a great distraction.
How the can get in an out of situiations,walk in the shadows
The ball scene and how the could be undetected
I laugh at some of the characters who were very colorful
never read the book only listen to audibles
Quite different from most reads but entertaining a bit quick with events in the story
He just seemed a bit too dramatic.

Might try another- but only after careful review of reviews to ensure that the author tones down her emphasis on the lurid sex scenes that never seemed to end. Even at the end of the book when it look like there was going to be an opportunity for a climatic action ending, the ending was climatic, sexually. I have never seen a story that had as much potential drowned in so many explicit sexual scenes. I am no prude but this book was way over the top. If I had a timer I think the sex scenes were more than half of the ending of the book in the last couple of chapters. It was so bad that I had to rely on the double speed option on my iPhone.
The basic story was interesting, more like a comic book theme- how Spiderman gets his powers...
Not really- way to many sex scenes, which were OK the first time but by the end of the book they had me rolling my eyes for all the emphasis.
addicted to reading/listening to Murder/Mystery/Thriller books. just recently listening to Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Interesting
This book was very good at times, but for some reason the narration was not the best at times, but a lot of it was good, and then some of the story was just Blah. Being that it is the beginning of a series, I willl give the next book a try, the story was ok, It is worth listeniing to, you just have to get past the not so good parts, luckily there are more good than bad. I know my review is a little confusing but you will understand after listening to this book.
I thought I was onto something with my initial listen to the excerpt - very disappointed in the shallowness of both main characters and the story line really petered out toward the end - no threads were dangling throughout the material that would have lead the leading lady to her conclusions - she was too busy shagging the leading guy. No worries there - great sex scenes are awesome but the repetitiousness of these and frequency began to drag down my libido rather than spicing it up! Overall a bit of a drag which is too bad cause the actual concept could have gone places and left me panting for the next in the series.
I did not have any interest in the story. I kept thinking to my self how could the main character be so dumb and why the heck would he play the Hannibal when he could get himself out at anytime. I stopped listening to the book in the 3rd chapter.
uh no probably not.
I think the book distracted from the book....
I would have gone back and found a better story plot.
