Publisher's Summary

A follow-up to Shadow Game.

Possessed of an extraordinary telekinetic gift - she can make objects burst into flames - Dahlia Le Blanc has spent her life isolated from other people. But just when she thinks she's finally achieved some semblance of peace, her well-orchestrated world comes crashing down.

For a reason she cannot guess, she has become the target of deadly assassins. Suddenly, no place is safe - not even the secret refuge she established long ago. Now she must rely on Nicolas Trevane, a dangerous warrior sent to track her down and protect her. Together, they generate a scorching heat Dahlia never imagined was possible. But can she trust this man with her secrets, especially when some people would kill to get their hands on them?

Christine Feehan's blend of sizzling romance, high-stakes action, and paranormal phenomena, has landed her on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly best seller lists.

Critic Reviews

"Swift-moving and sexually charged....an electrifying read, one that should satisfy [Feehan's] fans and cement her reputation as the reigning queen of the paranormal romance." (Publishers Weekly)

Nicolas and Dahlia - Blend perfectly together !

Any additional comments?

This series has a little of everything - Action and Danger, Psychic abilities and a lot of Hot Romance...... At the end of Shadow Game Lily and the GhostWalkers were determined to find the other children that Lily's father Dr Whitney had experimented on to enhance their psychic abilities. Dahlia is the first of those children that she has managed to track down but after looking at recordings of her training it seems she has a dangerous ability. Nicolas is sent to find her and let her know that they can help her to live a normal life but when he gets to her he finds she has become the target of deadly assassins. He manages to save her from their first attack but her friend has been taken hostage and Dahlia is determined to save him. She is going to need the help of Nicolas and the other GhostWalkers to rescue her friend and find out who is behind the plot to take her life.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and Mind Game didn't disappoint. I find the idea of an experiment to increase psychic abilities really interesting and love finding out about the different powers that the GhostWalkers have. Dahlia has a very unusual and dangerous talent which allows her to do amazing things but it comes at a very high cost to her. Constantly absorbing energy from her surroundings and the feelings of others she is easily overwhelmed and when that happens things become explosive, with Dahlia often setting fire to anything around her. Unable to control her powers she is a danger to anyone around her but Nicolas is willing to take the risk to be with her.

Dahlia has been through a lot since she was experimented on as a child, she has had no one she could rely on and has never allowed anyone to get close to her. Her dream of having a family has always seemed an unrealistic one and she has been forced to spend most of her time alone to avoid the affect that other people's emotions have on her. Nicolas is the most cold and aloof of the GhostWalkers but Dahlia breaks down his barriers and allows his passionate side to come to the front. It takes a while for Dahlia to allow Nicolas in but it's well worth the wait and the heat between them is literally explosive!

I enjoyed seeing more of the camaraderie between the GhostWalkers and it was sweet watching them welcome Dahlia into their family. We've been introduced to some more interesting characters who I'm hoping we'll see more of in future books and I'm looking forward to finding out more about the individual GhostWalkers psychic abilities. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!

a lot of sex becomes repetative

If you could sum up Mind Game in three words, what would they be?

good, sexual,loving

What did you like best about this story?

an impossible match made possible

What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

more inflection than I could give

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

wanted to laugh, and relax after sooo...much sex

Any additional comments?

sex took away some of the underlying story it seems as though he was filling the pages with sex instead of making it a really special

Excellent Romantic Suspance

I'd grown tired of Ms. Feehan's Carpathians, even though I still buy them, but this series is exactly what I (and she) needed. I've noticed several people complaining how there was too much sex.. DOOD! IT'S A ROMANCE. IF YOU DON'T' LIKE SEX, DON'T BUY THE DAMNED THING!! Now, the review.

THE BOOK: fast paced action with plenty of external conflict. I read a book on goal, motivation, and conflict recently and i think Ms Feehan has mastered these concepts. Each character had a definite goal they were trying to accomplish. Each character had separate motivations. Once they got together, they altered those motivations to help each other and both of them still reach their separate goals. The convlict was all over the place. Internal. External. Romantic. A very solid story with interesting twists and turns. Ms. Feehan made me, as a romance reader, care deeply about what happened to her characters. I particularly loved the heroin. Dahlia was strong and very powerful, if unable to control her abilities alone, but slight and small and as delicate as the flower she's named for. Nicholas was the strong, silent type with a driving need to protect the heroin. The only fault I had with this book was the authors "head hopping." I don't necessarily feel that you absolutly MUST stay in one character's point of view through an entire scene, but there needs to be a significant emotional shift in a scene if you switch characters. Ms. Feehan has always done this with every book I've ever read of hers, so it's sort of her style. Given that she's a NY Times Best Selling Author, I think I can forgive her on that. :) Because of that, I can't give less than 5 stars for this story.

THE NARRATION: Mr. Stechschulte (omg! the poor child in kindergarten!!) Does an excellent job. I particularly loved his Cajun accent for Gater (which made me rush out and buy the next book in this series.) He made the sex scenes that much hotter and, though I'm new at listening to romance or erotic romance read by a male narrator, believe me, i'm learning to love it because of Mr. Stechschulte :) I noticed others complained about his accent or how he says some words, but I found it sexy and that it added to the overall effect of the story itself. I think he is the perfect narrator for this series and I hope they continue to use him. There was an over abundance of "mouth noise," particularly in the second part of the book. I don't blame Mr. Stechschulte for this though. I blame the production staff. It wasn't in the first half, or at least, not as much and I didn't notice it in the next book in this series at all. It was, however, slightly distracting so I gave the performance 4 stars instead of the 5 I really felt it deserved. I will say this, though; Mr Stechschulte can call me ANYTIME. Read the weather report. Read the newspaper. WHATEVER! Just do it in that sexy Cajun drawl and I'll gladly listen for the rest of the week... :D

Fantastic

Where does Mind Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Ghost Walkers series ranks among my top two highest book series and audio book experiences. I am so hooked I am buying them ahead of my points in quick succession. I'm not too happy at the higher price over other books.

What did you like best about this story?

It was very well written on characterization. Real people, real reactions, no unrealistic swooning on either characters part. Caution and fear, insecurity, the whole gamut.

Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

Nicolas Trevane

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Nicolas Trevane has finally met, the only woman to take his heart and a one of a kind match when the dark and dangerous Dahlia La Blanc walks out of the bayou and straight into chaos.

Any additional comments?

Loved this book, so far I'm loving this series. Looking forward to the rest of them.

Brilliant

I'm a dark reader and although I've "meant" to read Christine Feehan's other series.
This is my first actual read. So glad I did.
I know this is the second book in the series but I'm as hooked on this as the Dark series.
Love it.

I loved it, BUT....

Where does Mind Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was great, I really liked books 1, 2 & 3, I've listened to about 7 of them now, I'm by no means a prude in any sense to explicit sex scenes but the long relentless sex scenes do become quite boring and there are SO many of them it's crazy. I thought they were necessary due to the plot but after 7 books now they are not relevant anymore, we get it. If you're after an x rated marathon then these books are for you. The thing is though the storyline in-between them is excellent. Bring all the characters together for a few cracking books, that's what I've been waiting for but gave up. I personally wanted to see this sooner and who knows it might happen but I'll keep an eye on this series if that day ever comes because it will be awesome.

What other book might you compare Mind Game to, and why?

other Ghostwalker books

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The action/thriller scenes and the well written emotional scenes of scarred people finding themselves again but you can cut 4/5th's of the sex out. It's all the same in every book.
