The latest sexy and suspenseful GhostWalker novel from the New York Times best-selling author of Spider Game.
When radical terrorists take hostages in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a super soldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better, run faster, disappear when necessary, and hunt the enemy along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that. A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke's different. His gaze, his touch, they awaken feelings inside her she never thought possible. He's the kind of man she could settle down with - if she can keep him alive.

Totally addicted to books: written or spoken! To read or to listen...? Both please!
I love love love the new narrator! I think the last guy was good, but he was sounding off in the last book. Maybe he's just getting old? I noticed it. It was distracting. I like this guy better. I hope she stays with the new one.
This book was great. I really liked it.
I started wondering if I was done with this book series on the last one. I'm not a fan of Trap. He's a bit too much. That last book was too much of a lot of things, and not enough actual story. But, this one made up for it.

Killing one of the long time enemies of the GhostWalkers
Narrator is not very good with the female and children voices but he is pretty good with the male voices.
OH Boy!! this was and Excellent story!! Kudos to Christine Feehan for and great addition to the GhostWalker series!!
Nonny/Grace Fontenot has become a GW in her own right. She is the idea of everyone's adorable grandmother. Power Game starts off with Nonny who has housed 9 of her grandsons GW friends. This is Ezekiel Fortunes story and his paired mate Bellisia Adams. Ezekiel is a doctor and a the Captain of the PJ GhostWalker team. Nonny has the second sight and is sending Ezekiel on an errand to town for her. Nonny knows that's were he will meet the GW female Bella he has been paired with by Dr. Peter Whitney.
Bellisia has remarkable GW Octopi DNA and has escaped her handlers Gerald and Adam after her mission to spy on Violet Symthe Freeman for Dr. Peter Whitney. Bella as she is call has information that she overheard while following and spying on Violet Smythe. Violet is one of Whitney enhanced orphans who has turned against her own kind the GW. She has sold the PJ's out to Bernard Lee Cheng who wants to start his own GW army of Soldiers but first he needs to know how it's done and Violet has told him how and were to find the team that is living with Nonny/Grace Fortenot in the Bayou of Louisiana. Cheng wants to capture one of the GhostWalkers extract his DNA and put them through all sorts of tortures test to find out how what they are made of and can endure.
Cheng's forces succeed in capturing Ezekiel, but before he is completely dissected he is save by Bellisia. This begins one action packed and fast pace story.
Power Game is full of the action scenes that GW fans love and of course our favorite heros the GW's kick butt and ask question later. We get to revisit Pepper and Wyatts triplet viper DNA baby girls. Who are just adorable. I just love Ginger, Tyme and Cannelle. Power Game took me on a whirlwind of a ride. I loved all the characters of the PJ team. We get some good revenge in this story as it leads us into the future of were the GW series is going. Oh How Sweet is Revenge!! I won't tell what it is, you will have to read for yourself. But GW fans will be happy about this revenge I assure you. What amazes me is some of the parallels of what has happen in the current elections in the United States and how power can drive crooked elected government leaders to show there prejudice for human beings of different races. Its as if Christine Feehan could see into the future or had some uncanny vision of what's was happening in the real world around us. The ridiculous and the dangerousness of Prejudice comes out in this story. Thank Goodness the Good Guys Win the Day!!
I Highly Recommend Power Game its worth the cost and it won't let you down. Its written in the true Ghostwalker fashion with a semi steamily sensual love relationship between Ezekiel and Bellisia. The sex has been toned way down. Power Game is about the story of people who want power at all cost!! with a lovely and sweet romance between Ezekiel and Bellisia!!
Zeke is kind of passive at first. Belesia is the more interesting personality of the pair. Or course they were paired together by Whitney. Both deadly in their own skill set, Belesia is quite appealing as a ghostwalker addition. Though she has some insecurity when it comes to settling down in one place, Zeke finds his way to winning her over. All of the ghostwalker men are singleminded in this one thing...they don't take no for an answer. So in Zeke's mind there is no question, Be!la is his women. The insecurities Bella has play true throughout this book as she fights for her newly found family. The Bayou and the Fontinues are a perfect setting for this pair as well.
I was also glad that the sex scenes were paired down in comparison to the last couple of books. Also the narration was spot on. I enjoyed every minute of the narration. so all things considered, I give this 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had gotten a bit put out over the last few Ghostwalker stories. The heroes were overbearing to the point of being verbally abusive, and it sickened me (I didn't even read Spider Game because several reviewers made similar complaints). The sex was gratuitous and unnecessary to the plot (and was borderline abusive IMO). I don't mind a steamy scene or two, but I don't want it taking up over 60% of the book.
After waiting a few days to read some of the reviews, I decided to give CF one more chance with Power Game. I'm glad I did! This has the feel of the earlier Ghostwalker stories. The hero is alpha, but not disgustingly so. The heroine kicks butt on her own, but also accepts help without being a doormat or railroaded.
I'm also glad at least one long-time storyline has ended. I feel like CF lets series go on too long, sometimes, without any real resolutions. I feel like at least one loose thread got snipped with this story.
Finally, while Jim Frangione did a fantastic job with the narration, I really missed Tom Stechschulte. He's the voice of the Ghostwalkers for me.
So, overall, I'm glad to say I can recommend this book to my fellow Ghostwalker fans. I feel like the series is back on track!
I Love this book . I am Blessed because I have and had 2 Graces in my life . My Mommy mother and my Daddy Mom. God, Family, Country, Neighbors , LOVE Christine Feehan is a wonderful Lady . Thank You I'll be waiting on the next book
I loved the story
I was glad there was more action than sex
Didn't care for him
Violet finally got her due.
It was truly is a great well rounded story. Plenty of nail biting action as well. The love story is heart warming. Never a waste of time!!! A great introduction with other characters. Looking forward to reading more future books.
The Powder Game book was a page-turner you couldn't wait to see what happened next overall I love this book.
Grace have went from two boys to 7 boys I love how she take care of her family.
For the Narrated Jim Frangione I love the way he keeps you on the edge of your seat biting your nails to see what is going to happen next it makes the story unfold right in front of your eyes
"Accents and voices are just not right."
I have all the Ghostwalker books as its my favourite Christine Feehan series but I will not buy another audio with Jim Frangione as the narrator. His voices all sound the same and his accents are barely there.Very disappointing.
I really wish they had managed to get Tom Steckshulte to have read this one too. Failing that, there must be someone that has a wider vocal range to give the different characters more definition and with a better grasp of the required accents.
I love all the Ghostwalker books that are based in and around New Orleans. Nonny is an endearing character who ties all the books into a mini series within a bigger story arc but it is one I love returning to.
