In a world so dark and seductive, expect nothing less than a triple-cross in the explosive all-new Ghostwalker novel by number one New York Times best-selling author Christine Feehan....
In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it's her job to fulfill them. But she's playing a far more dangerous game - one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense.
But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players - a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge. Both expendable. Both with nothing left to lose.

Christine once again hits a home run with Samurai Game. Her Ghostwalker Series is one of my favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy Genre and I find it hard to wait for the next book. But she hasn't failed yet in not delivering to her fans.

I enjoyed all of the ghost walker books I have read so far. And the narrator is awesome. I wish however there was more romance in the books and not so much action. I still enjoyed the book.
Great story, love the series however the narrators pronounciation of Japanese words drove me crazy, English is my first language but Japanese is syllabic instead of Sam u rai it ishould be "sa mu rai" Yes people say it the way the narrator said it but if he mispronounced spanish words everyone would be up in arms. Be more respectable of a different culture.
You get so involved in the love affair!!! You can feel and see the whole story as if you were there. I loved it.
How they made love for the first time. Very romantic and innocent.
The reader was excellent, He knew how to change his voice with the characters and made you feel what was going on in the story.
The whole thing was very good. I hated to stop listening when I had to get off the plane. I took it as something to do on the plane when I travelled to Alaska and I did not want anyone to talk to me while I listened.
Love Christine Feehan, love the series but this book didn't do it for me. I just couldn't get into the story or the characters. I have really like Sam in the other books but he seemed like a different person in this one?????? And, Thorn... yes thats what I'm calling her was just annoying. Calling Sam, "Sammy" and fluttering her eye lashes, really who does that? Not a kick butt heroin that's for sure. Also while the narrator has a beautifuly rich and deep voice he was NOT meant to do a female. His voice is beautiful and sexy for a man but his ladies sound breathy and "dumb" kind of Marilyn Monroe sings Happy Birthday Mr President (sorry I can't think of a better was to describe it). I'm looking forward to the next book in the series because I KNOW Christine Feehan can not strike out twice. She is an amazing author and I will continue to read her books.

No, it takes a really intriguing story or an exceptionally written book for me to listen more than once.
only to follow in the series but I think its not required as this book doesn't take the series anywhere.
I like Tom Stechschulte's performances in other series but this one ? not so much. he is too soft for this book.
I was very surprised by the sex scenes and thought some things are just better left to the imagination.
I like the Ghost Walker series of books in ebook format however this is the first audio book I have purchased. The story is getting frustrating because Dr. Whitney needs to be taken down and a fresh protagonist created. There are boundless options awaiting, but with Whitney being so untouchable the storyline is getting unrealistic. I think the series could really benefit if he were defeated and the Ghost Walkers can regain their lives and move on to bigger and better things. That being said the narrator of this audio book was hard to listen to. The flat tones he used to portray the Asians and the unrealistic voice of the African American lead in the story was pretty bad. It took me approximately three months to listen to the entire audio book and for me that is extremely long.
The teleporting and the ingenuity of the female lead character.
He differentiated the characters however the lead characters were unpleasant to listen to.
Hurry to get to the end of the story.
From her yes. If he is the only reader, no.
It went back to the orginal characters.
He can not read female parts. If he continues to read this series, I highly recommend that a female narrator joins the team. I can not stress enough how bad he is with the female characters. And his take on the Japanese accent was horrible.
I like the new characters that have been added to the orginal team, but where are some of the old ones? What happened to Jeff, the surfer boy? Don't get me wrong, I like the other Ghost Walker teams, but it is nice to find out what is going on with the original team. It would be nice to know what is going on with the team that we have only heard about. I think they were once members of the air force.
Christine Feehan's Ghostwalkers series is one of my favorites. The characters, in concert with Tom Stechschulte's performances, make them an automatic buy for me. This is the first book in the series that was truly disappointing; to the point where I had to force myself to listen to the end so that I didn't miss any of the storyline that may be relevant to future books. The only reason I gave this book a 3 star rating, instead of 1 or 2 is because of the beginning and ending of the book.
The first few chapters of the book (an hour or so in audio time) were great, detailing the individual backgrounds of Azami and Sam, Azami's relationship with her brothers and her work to destroy Whitney. Then, the storyline and my interest went south. Azami travels to meet the Ghostwalkers and when she meets Sam, their entourage is attacked. It is during this battle that Sam decides he is in love with her. The next couple hours of dialogue can be condensed into - Sam saying he loves her, Azami says she is not good enough to have the love of any man. Yes you are. No, I am not. Ok, I am. It was endless and painful to listen to because it was repetitive, and more importantly, unrealistic. They had known each other for about an hour. I get the whole Ghostwalkers can sense their soul mate storyline, but this was beyond credulity and when she started calling him "Sammy", I cringed and hit the fast forward. Also, if you removed each time Azami said she was either "a samurai', "trained as a samurai" or one of the endless variety of other references to "being samurai", the audiobook would lose about an hour in length. That said, after Sam and Azami acknowledged their love for each other, the book got interesting again.
The romance was rushed. This story had such potential because the characters individually were interesting - it was only when they were together that they were really boring and had no chemistry together. I am not giving up on this series – I have really liked all the earlier books. If you are new to the Ghostwalker series, don’t start with this novel – it is not representative of the earlier books that made me a fan of the series.
