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.

Perfectly read, sexy, exciting
Sam... and this is completely because of the narrator Tom Stechulte.
Oh yes.... I get books just because of him reading..... and the people who think he is not great at the women, are just wrong. Most books read by women make the women sound arragant and shallow. Tom gives the women such depth and character. I neve question why the men fall in love with them.
What a great find to have Tom Stechschulte!
I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
This is the latest instalment in the Ghostwalker series. I waited a long time for it, and I wasn't disappointed. The entire series is loaded with action, military precision, futuristic science, culturally and racially diverse characters and passionate love scenes. The sex and violence is very explicit, so if that's not your thing, this isn't the book for you.
I wouldn't call this series paranormal, although I believe it is billed as such. Rather than ghosts and vampires, this series is about genetically enhanced male soldiers, and their female counterparts who were similarly enhanced as children. Their enhancements give them certain powers that are well above and beyond what is common to most humans. A scientific genius created them to be military super weapons, and also breeding pairs for (hopefully) genetically gifted children.
Each book focuses on a couple who meet and fall in love. I suppose each book "could" stand alone, but not comfortably. There is an ongoing background story that is as compelling as the main story of each book, and for that reason I would suggest reading the series from the beginning to get the full effect.
Samurai Game itself was a wonderful addition. Thorn is a strong, smart heroine who doesn't sit around waiting for the hero to rescue her. Nor does she rush headlong into danger without the resources to get herself out. She is in parts strong and ruthless, caring and serene. Sam is a soldier through and through, with a man's need to protect his woman, but with enough respect for her capabilities to let her handle situations on her own.
If you like your romances with a healthy dose of action and intrigue, and if you like strong, smart, capable heroines to go along with your sexy macho heroes, you will love this series, and this book.
I would definitely recommend this book as I did so enjoy it. I do however recommend that you read the Ghostwalker series books in order or listen to them in order as this is book 10. I loved this story of Thorn and Sam. Thorn's childhood with Dr. Whitney was so horrendous that it was so nice to know there was someone for her who would totally love and appreciate her. I also enjoyed how she came together with some of the other women like Saber, Lily and Flame that helped her to "fit in".
I really liked how protective Thorn "Asami" was of Sam when he was wounded. How she felt such a connection to him. No matter the possible threat to herself she would have killed the other Ghostwalkers had she thought for one minute that they would not do all they could to save him. I liked how she realized that they were the "good guys" and were in the same boat she was in regards to Dr. Whitney.
I enjoy Tom Stechschulte and his performances, even though his female voices are not that great I love how he does the male voices especially Gator's. I personally think he is a very good narrator.
This book makes you feel sad for Thorn and her life as a child under Dr. Whitney's possession and then it also makes you laugh with her and Sam and how they are together.
Recommend you listen to the books in the series in order
I waited a long time to find out about Thorn. If I could sum up this story in three words it would be INTERESTING, EXCITING, AND BEAUTIFUL.
One of the most memorable moments for me was when Sam and Thorn teamed up and fought together at the beginning of the story. I knew that the entire story would be good.
I really love listening to Tom. He is one of my favorite story teller.
Yes I had an extreme reaction to the chapter where you learn how Thorn was used for experiments and for the other children to practice there skills. I experience a lot of difference emotions listening to this story.
I loved everything about this book. It was a beautiful tribute to Sam and Thorn.
If you like your romance with a little mayhem or mayhem with a little romance, this would be a good book for you. The plot had a new twist which I found refreshing; it does no damage to the story.
Our hero and heroine are my favorites. She insists she can take care of herself - and she can! I think they have makings of a good team once they learn to trust each to take care of him/herself.
Tom Stechshulte has done most of the Ghostwalker series and continues to remain a definite plus. His name is enough to push me into trying a book that I'm otherwise on the fence about.
It's been a long wait for the next book in this series, but it was worth the wait. The only draw back to this book, was that I had to go back and listen again to all the others to remember everyone who was talked about or in this book. But that was okay, it was worth listening again to all the other as well. But I'm still waiting for books on Team 4 and more on Team 3. I hope you enjoy the whole series!
Catching up on all the original characters, Ry, Sam, Kadan, Gator, etc. Also, like always, Tom Stechschulte is a GREAT narrator!
I love all the characters. This is a great series filled with believable characters that you feel like you know.
EVERYTHING! He is the best narrator out there. I have purchased audio books just because he is the narrator.
Daniel going to Azami and several of the Azami and Sam moments were very well written.
This is a great addition to the Ghostwalker series.
shower & asking her brother, taking out the traters
good suprizes and new way to deal with the workers of the Docter
The author revealed bits and pieces of information in a way that kept my interest. Additionally, the tranformation of the female lead was heart breaking, inspiring, and hopeful.
A sigh of relief, and YESSS!
Tom Stechschulte use of inflection and pauses makes the listener slow down and enjoy the moment.
Ghost walkers rock!
It goes on with the story line and gets closer to finding out about the bad guy.
