In the new GhostWalker novel by the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Viper Game, a trained killer meets his match in a woman whose very kiss can stop a heart.
The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn't exactly Trap Dawkins' idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn't there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It's where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn't want to leave a place like this with a woman like her? It's not Cayenne's fault. Locked up, experimented on, and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way - with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past, and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap's greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what's inside her is hard to control - especially when it's aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

Let me first start off by saying I am a huge fan of hers and have read all her series. This is the first book she has written that I couldn't finish. I couldn't get past Traps awful personality and the way he treated Chey. My inner lioness was roaring for all women kind. It's one thing to be dominated in the bedroom, that doesn't mean you allow them to treat you like a doormat the rest of the time. Reading this book took me back to the time when the little women stayed at home patiently waiting for her big strong man.
Ugh!! How frustrating. It was men who thought and acted like this character that caused women to burn their bras and yell "Votes for Women!"
To the women that gave it 5 stars, I'm not sure we read the same book. It was repetitive on so many different things and the contradiction between how Trap "was" and how he actually "acted " was distracting. This book did not really follow the usual GhostWalker arc and seemed to use the sex scenes and repetition as filler instead of actually having a story line.
I am hopeful that this was just a fluke and the next book will have the normal strong confident male character and the equally strong independent " kick butt, I want you but I don't need you " female character.
I'm still a fan, and look forward to her next book.
The back story (Whitney and his craziness) is the best thing about this book. The only thing I liked about it was that it’s a bridge from the last book (that I LOVED) and the next book (which I’m sure I will at least like better than this piece of crap). There is info about the backstory that you get in this book that I’m sure you will need when listening to the next book.
It hasn’t turned me off from this genre, but it almost made me turn away from this series. I hope her next book isn’t as disturbing as this one.
Honestly there wasn’t many scenes I liked in this book. Maybe the scene with Cayenne, Pepper and Noni (at least Trap isn’t in that small scene)
I was actually physically ill when reading some of the scenes between Trap and Cayenne. He is emotional abusive through the whole book. He treats her like property and a piece of meat he can F**k whenever he wants. After knowing his childhood and how his father treated his mother I would have hoped he would have more respect for the women he claimed to love. He is a despicable human and by the end of the book I was almost hoping he would take a bullet in the head so Cayenne would be free. She spends her whole life in a cage and then the first man she meets that is kind to her treats her like sh** and that’s ok? Seriously? If this was someone in my real life I would be trying to get her to run and get help. Physically ill.
I am so sad that an author as well know and respected as Christine Feehan has started using her fiction to portray verbal and mental abuse as a romantic way to to treat a woman. This behavior is despicable and it rubs me very wrong that it is directed towards a woman who has been mistreated and marginalized her whole life. Time for a reality check Mrs. Feehan, I truly believe that most women or men find it sexy to be sworn at, disparaged, or controlled with guilt or anger. This book was my last try for her and I will no longer be supporting her career as an author. 10 fingers down!!
There were chapters after chapters of nothing but sex. It became boring. This needed more action and storyline.
If you are looking for nothing but kinky sex acts and talk, this is the book for you. If you are looking for the caliber of story and the action of all of the other Ghostwalker books, this is not the one for you I am sorry to say.
I always enjoy the narrator of this series, but I did not like the voice of the female. For an "enhanced" female she was pretty whiny. I made it through the first part and almost halfway through the second part and it never got any better. I will definitely be returning this one.
Change the female character and put back more of the action. This is not romance but almost porn.
I will continue the series because I love all of her books, but hope for better in the next one.
Christine Feehan is one of my favorite authors & I have so far loved the Ghostwalker series. However... this book missed the mark by a long shot in my humble opinion & was very tough to get through. Besides constantly reiterating Trapp's feelings, fears, & insecurities about his life and his woman, the entire book detailed their constant lovemaking sessions in exceptionally tedious detail and with so much "f.....ing" detail (his favorite word). The narrator is also one of my favorites & he did the best he could with the story he was given. Very little action in this story. I'm not sure if I will purchase anymore of the series.
After previous stories in this series which I LOVED - this was a disappointment. It seemed that it was more soft porn than paranormal romance. I don't mind some sex scenes in my stories - it tends to spice up the story line normally - but this was overload in the extreme. It was about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way through chapter 10 before we actually saw a story/plotline emerge, and even then it was heavy on the sex which leaned toward BDSM.
I honestly didn't care much for Trap either. His character is the sort of male that puts my hackles up and makes me want to punch someone. He's overbearing, demanding, and expects subservience to an extent that pisses me off.
I also didn't feel the narrator has a tonal range that effectively "read" the women and the men. Most of the characters sounded extremely similar compared to other narrators I've listened to.
Overall it is just very disappointing for me. I'm hoping the next book can redeem my love for the series.
LOVE the Series!! The author never fails to entertain and grab me from the start. So much detail you want to listen again.
The male accents are consistent. The Female's accent sounded French, then Swedish, then a mixture of something here and there. He's usually on target, but something went wrong this time.
Love the story all the way through.
Christine Feehan has done it again! She took the coldest and icy Ghost Walker and turned him into a steaming hot sexual predator. His mate is just as hot and together they are smoking. However, there is action, and learning to deal with hugh personality adjustments. The narration by Tom Stechschulte is flat out superb. He makes you feel everything the characters are feeling as though you are right there with them. I couldn't put it down. I very highly recommend this book.
