"In Feehan's latest paranormal, sizzling sex scenes both physical and telepathic pave the road to true love for brilliant billionaire scientist Lily Whitney and Captain Ryland Miller, the leader of a squad of psionically gifted soldiers who have been imprisoned and separated from each other after receiving life-threatening enhancements. When Lily's father called her in to consult on a top-secret project he was working on for the government, he had no idea that he was signing his own death warrant or that his beloved daughter with her psychic talents would witness his murder and become a target for the traitors who were bending his project to their own evil purposes. Ryland lends his psychic strength to Lily and ignites a passion that brings him and his men into her high-security estate. Action, suspense, and smart characters make this erotically charged romance an entertaining read." (Booklist)
Kept me intwined and entertained.
Fantastic combination of paranormal and sexy scenes. Please come protect me, my Ghostwalkers!
This book was recommended by my mother because of the narrator. Tom Stechschulte does a wonderful job with the telling of this book! It was hard to stop listening when I had to work or do something that required my attention. I felt like I was right there with the characters of this story as it happened. I will definitely listen again!
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Captain Ryland Miller is a basically a "rat" in a cage as are his men in his military unit. They volunteered for a highly classified experiment to enhance the psychic abilities they each had. Dr. Peter Whitney is the head scientist with Colonel Higgens the military liaison. Several of Captain Miller's men have died of "brain bleeds" and other suspicious causes. They are all separated and can only communicate infrequently via telepathy.
Dr. Whitney and Col. Higgens come to talk to him and have brought guards and Dr. Whitney's daughter, Lily who is also a doctor and scientist. Dr. Whitney has asked his daughter to consult on the project as he is not sure why some of the men have died.
Ryland is immediately drawn to Lily and she to him. They communicate telepathically which scares Lily at first. Shortly after she is linked with her father and she realizes he is being killed and almost doesn't separate herself from him in time but with Ryland's telepathic help she does. In the coming days, no one else seems to know her father is dead not just disappeared and Lily becomes worried as she delves into her father's secret laboratory and papers finding secrets about him and herself that are very hard to take in.
The story progresses as Lily helps Ryland and his team break out and shelters them. Ryland, Lily and his team also work to find out how his other men died and who is responsible as it soon becomes apparent it is not Dr. Peter Whitney.
My one main problem in this story. I can't beleive I am saying this because I love a good sex scene. However, I felt there was too much spent on Lily and Ryland falling into bed and/or having sex in dangerous places almost every other page. I would like to have had more time spent on both the "bad" guys and the members of Ryland's team to get to know their characters more and what they had actually gone through being part of this experiment.
I still really enjoyed the book and although I felt there a few too many sex scenes they were well written and hot.
Tom Stechschulte was outastanding in the delivery of the story
Simply fabulous people. I am so loving the character in this series!
The psychic skills of the characters are fantastic!
His voice is great and all the characters have their own voice. I can see and hear them in my mind.
I laughed a lot and felt terrible for the victims of Lily's father!
Can't wait to read the next in the series!
I love Christine Feehan she is one of my favorite PR authors and this book doesn't disappoint.
This was a really good book and the first book of it's kind that I think would strongly appeal to both sexes. A lot of it is from the main male characters viewpoint. He's a soldier, special operations in a leadership position and as a former military wife I can say she was dead on with his characteristics and personality. Reminded me a lot of some folks I know. I think a man would like this book just as much as the ladies. A nice balance between story, character and animal attraction (and of course the results of that - it is Feehan after all). I'd certainly recommend the book or audiobook.
Strong characters, not a damsiel in distress type of thing, she is as much rescuing him as he ever rescues her.
Ryland - definitely. He oozed right out of the head phones and into my fantasies!
His emotions conflicting with his need to be all male.
Very well done from all sides. Particularly like that this book would be as enjoyable for the guys as the gals. I haven't seen another of this kind like that.
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
Addicted to Audio Books !
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.
The narrator of this book is so perfect. Makes it hard to write this while listening. I'm so glad this first book in the Ghost Walkers series is finally available!
