    5 Cinnamon Stars *May have spoilers* “We fit. You don’t want to be alone and neither do I. Give us a chance, Tansy. I’m not easy, but I’m loyal, yours, all the way.” Wow Murder Game was awesome. Man can Christine Feehan write a intriguing plot. I loved this couple, and I loved this book. 7 books into this series, and I am still just as hooked as I was after reading the first book. I do want to say this book was darker, and there is some details about murder, rape, and the torture of men, women 5 Cinnamon Stars *May have spoilers* “We fit. You don’t want to be alone and neither do I. Give us a chance, Tansy. I’m not easy, but I’m loyal, yours, all the way.” Wow Murder Game was awesome. Man can Christine Feehan write a intriguing plot. I loved this couple, and I loved this book. 7 books into this series, and I am still just as hooked as I was after reading the first book. I do want to say this book was darker, and there is some details about murder, rape, and the torture of men, women, and children. “At the end of the day, when we sit in our rocking chairs, Tansy, and watch our grandchildren play, I can promise you, being with me will have been worth it.” What this book is about Someone is committing murders, and the Ghostwalkers are getting the blame. Kaden has been ordered to find the murderer, and take him or her out, before all the Ghostwalkers are eliminated. Kaden needs the help of fellow Ghostwalker Tansy, who can read objects when she touches them, and she is helping them whether she wants to, or not. The only problem is the minute he smells her, he knows she is his genetically matched mate, and she is destroying all his ice cold control! “But not tonight. Tonight I want to be so deep inside of you that you’ll never get me out. I want to brand you mine forever.” Kaden: Everyone believes Kaden has ice running through his veins, because he never shows emotions, until Tansy! I absolutely adore Kaden. He has one of the saddest backgrounds of the whole series. The only way he survives his past is by burying all his emotions, and having complete control at all times. I love how Tansy turns his whole world inside out. Kaden is very Passionate. I feel Christine Feehan did a wonderful job of keeping Kaden true to himself. Tansy softened Kaden a lot, but it was a slow melt, and he was still Kaden. Still bossy, and dominant, and rough around the edges. Kaden is very loyal, and determined. I found Kaden to be a sexy caveman beast! I didn't feel he was too controlling, or mean, just your typical yummy alpha male losing his cool over a woman. “I’m the only man who is ever going to lie with you at night and hold you close and keep you safe. I’m the only man who is going to make love to you anywhere, anytime, any way we both need or want it. More importantly, Tansy, I’m the man who is going to kill anyone who threatens you. So you can damn well listen to me.” “My mind shares yours. If you’re determined to go through with this, then know wherever this takes you, you won’t be alone, Tansy. I’m strong. I’ll find your mind and I’ll bring you back.” “Last time I broke into a million pieces.” “I’ll find each one.” “Never doubt that I want you every minute of every day. Night and day. I’m always hungry for you.” He tossed his wet shirt aside. “If I had my way, you’d just walk around naked waiting for me to bury myself in you.” Tansy: Her hands caught his face. Her gaze stayed locked on his. “I do love you. Every part of you. Can’t you feel it when I give myself to you? Feel me, the way I need you.” I really like Tansy. She is sweet, and giving , but she stands up to Kaden, and his iron will when she truly wants something. She is brave, and wants to do the right thing. She is driven, and single minded when she starts a task. She needs to see it to the end. She loves wholeheartedly , and doesn't play with Kaden's feelings, which I loved! She softens Kaden with her love, understanding, and total acceptance of who he is. “You can bark out orders all you like, big man, but I’m not under your command. I’m not exactly an amateur at this business, and I don’t fall under the category of your underling, so get over that notion as well. Just who do you think you are, anyway?” “I’m absolutely all right with you touching me. I love your hands on me. I especially love your mouth on me, and if you want to be inside me, say the word and I’m there. Just try not to throw me on the kitchen table in front of everyone and we’ll be fine.” “You’re nothing like they are. Not a single part of you. You feel so much, so deeply, and your mind shuts that off to protect you. You aren’t a cold, unfeeling monster, Kadan, you never have been. That part of you is necessary, it keeps you from losing your mind. It’s a protection. Without it, you couldn’t do the things you need to do to keep the world a safer place. I know that sounds silly and trite, but it’s still the truth.” She brushed her mouth gently over his eyelids. “I love you exactly the way you are. I love that cold warrior who keeps this man you sane and alive and coming back to me.” “Understand I’m telling you the truth. The one thing in your life, from now until the end, is that you can always count on me.” Kaden and Tansy have a insta-love, but it worked for me. They are full of passion, and set my kindle on fire. I love them together, and rooted for them all the way. I love the comradery the Ghostwalkers have with each other. I love the way they are always ribbing each other. This book had a great story line that kept me on the edge of my seat dying to know what was going to happen next. Murder Game is a terrific addition to the Ghostwalker series. I can't wait to see what else this series has in store. I am on to the next book. Below I leave my favorite moment from this book: He frowned and leaned close to Kadan, sniffing. “Cinnamon?” “Shut the hell up,” Kadan snapped and pushed past him. Ryland took another whiff and gave a low whistle. “You smell yummy. I’m getting hungry. Maybe cinnamon buns.” Kadan flipped him off rudely. Nico stood waiting by the front door. As always he was their backup. He frowned when the two GhostWalkers got close. “What the hell is that smell?” “Kadan’s new spicy cologne.” “Go to hell, Rye,” Kadan said and shot him a look that should have withered him on the spot. “Both of you can go to hell.” “I think his blood sugar’s dropping,” Ryland explained. “Must have been all the cinnamon candy he got tonight.” Nico put on an innocent face. “That woman of yours smells a little like cinnamon.” “Makes you hungry, doesn’t it?” Ryland said. “Yep. Can’t wait to tell Dahlia about this one. The ice man gets all hot and bothered around cinnamon spice. Who would have guessed?” “Don’t make me shoot you.” Kadan yanked open the front door. “Because I’ll do you both in a heartbeat and never look back.” Ryland smirked at him, not in the least intimidated. He began humming a tune overly loud under his breath. Kadan shot him a look of intense irritation. “What are you doing now?” Nico nudged him. “Don’t you know that tune? I’d think it was your favorite. You’re such a music cretin. Neil Young wrote some great songs.” When Kadan still looked blank, Nico sang the lyrics while Ryland hummed. “I wanna live with a cinnamon girl . . .” “I really am going to shoot you both.” Kadan shook his head. http://jessicasoverthetopbookobsessio...

    Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    I just completed my third reread of this, over the past several months. It took me a while because I read it at night on my Kindle. I love all these books. I was going to say this one stands out. It does because they all do. Kadan is still crazy after all these years. I think his craziness strikes me so strongly because he seems so self-controlled and the voice of reason in the other books. But then he's the main character and I realized how damaged he was and what motivates him. Like the other I just completed my third reread of this, over the past several months. It took me a while because I read it at night on my Kindle. I love all these books. I was going to say this one stands out. It does because they all do. Kadan is still crazy after all these years. I think his craziness strikes me so strongly because he seems so self-controlled and the voice of reason in the other books. But then he's the main character and I realized how damaged he was and what motivates him. Like the other GhostWalkers, he's not expecting a woman to become the focus of his world, and bam, it happens. He goes a bit off the rails. The situation is complicated by the fact that he needs her to track some enhanced killers and that puts her at risk each and every time. And the fact that he's compelling attracted to her and can't seem to control himself around her. It's a lot to take in. The suspense in this book is very prominent and the storyline about killers fulfilling the qualifications of a game is very twisted. Tansy's visions are vivid and disturbing, and the damage they cause her really got to me. But I loved her determination to do what she's been gifted to do. Kadan is super bossy, and Tansy is very soft and sweet, but determined in her own way. They make a great couple. I loved spending more time with them and some of the others, like Ryland, Gator, Ian, Tucker, Jeff, Ken, Jack and Marigold. If there were people I wish could be real, it would be the GhostWalkers. PS. Kadan's declaration of love at the end was absolutely perfect. Just what I needed on a sleepless night. ****Reread 7/4-7/7/2012 My thoughts: Loved this book the second time even more! I personally find serial killer stuff highly disturbing, so some parts were tough for me. Poor Tansy, using her psychic gifts to hunt serial killers from a very young age, even without having any psychic barriers built up. That's courage. The storyline about the murders was very dark and twisted. The psychic elements ramped up the tension and made this even more visceral a read. Despite the unpalatable aspects of these killers, they didn't make the romance seem inappropriate. Instead it intensifies the connection between Tansy and Kadan that she is crucial in solving these crimes, and working with Kadan, she can do her job without it compromising her mental and physical health. Kadan-- I love him so much, even though he's barely sane at times (in my opinion). He's super-duper bossy and domineering, but it somehow works for his relationship with Tansy, so that made it okay for me, although that's not something that I normally find appealing. On the other hand, loved his possessive/jealous nature, and how crazy about Tansy he was. What happened near the end was just powerful reading. If I had ever doubted how much Tansy meant to him before that, this brought it home. Kadan, you are so lickable! Tansy-- Loved her. She's soft and sweet, but also very tough down deep. She could definitely give Kadan a run for his money if she wants to. But she likes making him happy and taking care of him in the way he needs. She likes him that way and truly looks into his heart and understands the hurt child who had to compartmentalize those violent parts of himself to stay sane, thus the cold as ice demeanor. She trusts him to do the same for me. I know some readers don't like soft, sweet heroines, but I love them, and Tansy is especially well done for that type. She doesn't feel the need to pretend otherwise when she enjoys being with Kadan and his protective and demanding nature. I give Ms. Feehan props for not being afraid to write her this way. I don't think I could see any other woman with Kadan. Final Thoughts: Murder Game is just so good. It's even more enjoyable on the reread as I was able to savor aspects I buzzed through the first time in my enthusiasm. I loved the relationship between Tansy and Kadan (although it did challenge my personal views on this sort of relationship, moreso on the first read. But then I'm not either character and if that works for them, why not???). As always, loved the action and suspense, the bad*ss heroes, the joking and bond between the GhostWalkers, and how they opened their family to Tansy so generously. I'm so grateful for this series! Check out my GhostWalkers board on Pinterest. > Original Review: Ah, how could I not love a hero like Kadan. So crazy, and delicious, from head to toe. Here I was thinking that Kadan was going to be mellow compared to the Norton twins. NOT! That man is intense. I loved this book. It starts out with a bang and keeps going. I think Christine Feehan is wonderful at pairing these characters. Tansy and Kadan are a great match for each other. She's strong but willing to be submissive with Kadan. He's very much a dominant kind of man. At times I vacillated between being completely in love with him and thinking he was way too dominant for my tastes. It was like a knife edge in the very hot and sensual scenes for me. I was thinking, "Is he being too rough?" But he really wasn't. He didn't do anything that Tansy didn't like or made her feel uncomfortable. But he was all about control. He would do and say things that showed he was in charge, and Tansy probably could have fought him on more things, but she really didn't seem to feel the need to do it. She was a very calm, composed person. Kadan thinks of himself as an ice man. Very remote, and always in control. Because of a traumatic event as a child, he sees himself as a cold-blooded killer, almost a monster. He didn't think he could have a family or a woman. He felt all he had was his Ghostwalker family and the next mission. From the moment he sees Tansy, he feels like there is something more for him. It was very refreshing to read a book where the hero is in love from the first moment. He might not have said 'I love you,' but if this man wasn't in love, than I don't know what love is. He was completely crazy about Tansy. I don't know why, but these kinds of heroes that I call 'stalkerific' never fail to appeal to me. They are crazy possessive and obsessed with the heroine. And sometimes it's a little scary, but since it's romance and fiction, it's all good. Well Kadan might be the King of Stalkerific heroes. I think that he would be more scary if it wasn't absolutely obvious how much he adores Tansy. This man is crazy about Tansy. He would always need to touch Tansy, even around the other Ghostwalkers. It wasn't anything over the top, but definitely PDAs. The thought of her suffering or being hurt or in pain drives him absolutely crazy. It makes him get even more dominant alpha. I have to give it to Tansy. She really understood that, and reassured him that he had her love and always would. Tansy was a very mature person. She was quite Zen. Although not an alpha heroine, she had a formidable inner strength. She had weathered so much for young age, and she goes through even more during this book. Tansy had a way of accepting things and seeing them for what they were. But I believe that her near breakdown and getting through that gave her the strength to be able to deal with very bad things in a straightforward manner without going off on the deep end. I really loved Tansy as a heroine (which I love all the Ghostwalker heroines but she's my favorite now). She has the phenomenal mental ability to track serial killers by touching the objects they handled, although it makes her physically and mentally ill when she does it. Initially that was the reason that Kadan finds Tansy, to track the rogue Ghostwalker team who is committing a series of murders. When Kadan sees how devastating it is for Tansy to use her ability, his protective instincts override the desire to use her talents. He sees that she has not been shown how to use filters to protect her mind. I liked how Kadan was so protective of Tansy, and how he didn't like her doing something that was so bad for her. Although Tansy submitted to Kadan in almost every way, she refused to stop using her talent if it could save lives. So he did everything to help her to be safe when she did use her talent. Those scenes were very well done. This showed that although Kadan was so dominant, it was clear that he was able to be gentle and caring. Also this was shown in the other moments when Tansy is hurt or suffering. He couldn't handle it. Kadan and Tansy have their first sexual encounter very, very early in this book. It didn't feel wrong to me. It felt right because of a few factors: intense relationship, their being paired because of Mad Scientist Whitney, and the fact that Kadan has already realized that she is the woman for him and that he's not letting go of her. If Tansy hadn't been the kind of heroine that wasn't as level-headed and philosophical, it could have felt ugly and forced, but it didn't. She's a special person, and made for this man. He'd be way too scary for a lot of women. But she is fine with him, immense control issues and all. The action in this book is very in your face. I love action as much as I love romance, so it was a great combination. It was so cool to see the original Ghostwalker team (especially Nico, Gator, Ryland, but also Tucker and Ian) in on the action. They are in this book a lot (I was in heaven because I love these guys). It was nice to see the joking and comraderie between the Ghostwalkers. The pretty much adopt Tansy into the family. Kadan gets teased a lot because of his obvious adoration of Tansy. The Ghostwalkers work so well together and love each other (although they are alpha males and don't get all mushy about it, this is very clear). We also get to see Ken, Jack, Jeff, and Mari. These guys are total, badass (pardon my French) warriors. I am in awe of them. I could hug Christine Feehan for writing these books, because they really meet my needs for a great romance novel with high octane action. Readers who are sensitive about violence should be warned about this book. It does have quite a bit of violent scenes. I didn't think they were gratuitous, but definitely might be too much for a sensitive person. The subject matter is quite dark. There are people who kill for money and for sport in this book. But Kadan's Ghostwalker team is going to shut them down with Tansy's help. The end was very intense and Tansy has her own battle to fight with the Ghostwalkers' help. I wasn't expecting the way things wrapped up. It was sort of like a one-two punch. At first I thought the storyline was wrapping up a little too tidily, but then wham, bang. All I can say is wow. There was nothing I didn't like about this book. It is my favorite in the series now. Kadan is just an incredible hero (kind of crazy in a typically quiet and deadly fashion, but really in the best ways). Tansy is just the heroine to handle this intense guy, and give him the love, acceptance and home he craved. And he's just the man to love her within an inch or her life and keep her very, very happy at the same time.

She gave in early, did not cause unnecessary drama (thank you Ms. Feehan for not having her "fight" him for 50-70% of the books) and did not feel the need to fight with him about every little thing. But she was no pushover. When I read books like this, I wish more authors would learn how to write heroines along this vein. Heroines do not have to be meek doormats or mean bitches to pair up with an alpha Hero. I took of half a point for the dreamwalking. I did not understand it or really like it. It just seemed to make the plot unnecessarily more complex. Totally safe read! Enjoy!

    I'm obviously an addict. Christine Feehan's books are like crack for me. I know what's going to happen. I know what her heroes are like. I know there's going to be a happy ending, and in her 'GhostWalkers' series I know there will be violence...and justice. So why do I keep reading them? Because she manages to pull me into the minds of both the hero (and he's always deliciously tortured!) and the heroine. I become attached to them and can't stop reading until I see IN PRINT that they're together I'm obviously an addict. Christine Feehan's books are like crack for me. I know what's going to happen.

I become attached to them and can't stop reading until I see IN PRINT that they're together, safe, and happy. "Murder Game" was no exception. In fact, I think this just might be her best GhostWalker book yet. Kadan is the GhostWalker they call Bishop. His team is pretty sure he has ice water in his veins and he NEVER let's anything rock his calm. When the GhostWalkers come under suspicion of a series of murders, he's given a secret assignment to either clear their name, or find the guilty ones and eliminate them. He needs someone who can 'read' objects and Tansy is that person. She'll help him, voluntarily or not. He tracks her to the mountains where she's photographing mountain lions and it only takes two minutes for him to realize that she's the woman he was genetically matched to. This iceman is about to suffer a heat wave! Tansy has always been different. As a child of 13 she began using her abilities to help track serial killers. It got harder and harder to pull back from the memories and her last case almost drove her insane. So after a long stint in the psych hospital, she put out the word that she had lost her abilities. She's found a career she can practice away from people, in the wild, but always alone. Then her world is invaded and torn apart by a harsh-looking man whose abilities are just as strange as hers. The story he tells her is horrifying, and ends up hitting way too close to home. And he wants, no demands, her help to stop a gang of serial killers directed by a man with no conscious...and no intention of stopping. And now this director is looking for her. I couldn't put "Murder Game" down. Kaden's meltdown was riveting and pulled my emotions every which way. If you're a Feehan fan, don't miss this book.

Kadan was a walking hard-on who demanded it constantly, but I'm not complaining because his "I gotta be inside you now" thing was pretty f*ckin' hot! So although it took me a while to finally finish reading this, I'm glad that I didn't give up on it. Thanks for urging me on, Danielle and Yvonne, because Kadan is indeed a crazy, dangerous, sexy, and unforgettable alpha hero!

I'd been dying to read Kadan's story since I met him in Shadow Game - the cold and quite badasses never fail to attract my attention, LOL - so I was more than happy when I finally got to read his book. As the story begins, Kadan is assigned to identify and eliminate (aka kill) the assassin(s) responsible for several murders that seem to have been commited by one (or more) GhostWalkers. He trusts his fellow teammates, but he's advised to keep his mission secret and can't enlist their help because they're all considered suspects. But Kadan knows he has to solve the case fast if he wants to catch the assassin(s) before another murder is commited, so he tracks down Tansy Meadows in order to convince her to help him. Tansy is, unbeknown to her, a GhostWalker too and another one of those girls Dr. Whitney experimented with some 20/25 years ago in his mad quest to create the perfect "supersoldier". (Side note: At some point, I'd like to see a normal human being as the hero or heroine in this series. It would be different and interesting to shake the "formula" up a bit.) Tansy's power is, she can "reach" and track anyone by simply touching an object that has been manipulated by that person, so Kadan hopes she'll be able to identify the assassin(s) through the several objects collected as evidence at each of the crime scenes. The problem is, Tansy has just recovered from a serious breakdown caused by the extensive use of her psychic powers and doesn't want to use them ever again. Naturally, Kadan never takes no for an answer and, before she knows it, Tansy is dragged into the "murder game" and running for her life... This book was packed with some fast-paced action that had me biting my nails. CF really knows how to write gripping military action and, even though I knew the GhostWalkers would come out as winners in every single battle, it was exciting to read those scenes. The body count in this book was high but I didn't bat an eyelash, so I'm afraid I've become too bloodthirsty, LOL. Thankfully, I have a few months to regroup before the next book in the series is released in December. As much as I enjoyed this read, 2 things prevented me from giving it a 5-star rating: 1. Kadan's extremely dominant behavior and Tansy's submisse attitude annoyed me. Don't get me wrong, I love a strong alpha hero as much as the next gal. But he has to be paired with an equally strong heroine to make it work for me. She doesn't have to be alpha, she can even be shy and timid, but she has to be able to stand up against him if necessary. I never felt that Tansy had any real chance to ever say no to Kadan, as she always "convinced" herself she wanted the same he did. 2. Too. Much. Sex! Yes, that's right. Kadan just couldn't keep it in his pants when Tansy was around, and she was always more than happy to oblige. When I found myself skimming through the last sex scenes so I could get back to the story, I knew there was something "wrong". All in all, I really liked this book and plan to keep reading the series.

    This was a good entry into the Ghostwalkers series. The hero was great, he was a quite a tough guy who was blindsided by his intense and immediate feelings for the heroine.

The action and storyline were very good, I enjoyed this book much more than the last one. I loved having all of the guys from the earlier books show up and the humor they showed with each other. The lead couple was enjoyable to read about as well and the love scenes were hot. This series is still going strong after quite a few books!

They are warriors, born in the wrong century, men with honor, codes, patriotic and a way of life that was politically incorrect. These are some "lean, mean, killing machines"...and I love them:-) This is Kadan Montague's story and I have been looking forward to this one since his introduction in Shadow Game. Large, heavily muscled with brute strengh, he exuded power from every pore. He is well known for his ability to get the job done, ruthless, a man without mercy with ice running in his veins. But he is also a tormented soul and his coldness is his way of turning off emotion. Tansy Meadows' first impression of him was danger. With his features carved from stone he was a little scary. But when those cat eyes fully focused on her and then he spoke with his rich, velvety voice...she new she was in trouble:) Suffering from a horrific past, she too is a courageous warrior who willingly sacrifices herself for the good of others even when it may bring harm to herself. I liked her compassion and she is perfect for Kadan. His unique mission requires Tansy's help and when these two meet the pages come alive and the sizzle is so hot it scorches! Publisher's Weekly penned this one right --- "Sexually charged,...electrifying." The intensity of the GW's emotions never fails to capture my complete attention. Whether fighting the enemy, solving a mystery, protecting or making love to their "soulmate," each task has their complete focus. This intensity of emotion is what initially drew me to Kadan. He is a powerful soldier who knows how to get the job done; self-assured in his abilities. Power and danger oozes from this man. (gosh, is oozes a word?:)There is also his loneliness and the anguish that he keeps buried deep within. But the draw for me was his passion for Tansy. It is a deep, burning love, protective, adoring, possesive, dominate, sensual, hot, and lustful. I loved everything about Kadan Montague! Added to that is a fresh plot brilliantly written along with new talents revealed and another team of players introduced, this book kept me reading until the early hours. One of the things I like best with Christine Feehan's GWs is the perfect balance of action, suspense, and hot, hot, steamy lovin'. As in the other installments, this one is full of all three and as always, romance is in the forefront just the way I like it! The camaraderie is excellent and I loved revisiting the past members. There is laugh-out loud moments with their teasing and heart-wrenching moments that nearly brought me to tears. I loved this book! I know I repeat myself when I say I am captivated from the very first few pages, held hostage, and devour Christine Feehan's GW books like an addict! I have only two remaining and I will savor them slowly and be in torment until the next one is released:-) Thank you Lady D for introducing me to my favorite Paranormal Romantic Suspense Series. I have loved each book and they all are 5+ reads for me!

When he was "sent" to retrieve Tansy Meadows from the Sierra Nevada Mountains in order to use her "elite tracking" skills to hunt down multiple serial killers she rocked his world. Together, they find a way to tame her skills, track down bad guys, solve a mystery and fall in love. About half-way into the book previous GhostWalkers enter the story: Ryland Miller (#1), Raoul "Gator" Fontenot (#3), Nicholas "Nico" Trevane (#2), Ian McGillicuddy, Jack and Ken Norton...and a few new guys are mentioned. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and didn't slow down once. Nicely edited (Thank you!) Another favorite for This Reader.

THIS IS WHAT I LOOK FOR EACH TIME I READ A ROMANCE BOOK. This is also a rare occurrence in my romance book, to find such "Ultimate Love Story" that captivates your whole heart and soul when you reach the end! Put it kindly, This book is a keeper that I will read time and time again and never tire of it! This author has a gift in crafting her story-telling with words that show you images that go straight to your heart... This is a love story that stood the test of death and grew into a lasting love this author wrote with so much passion and heart and ultimately that "essence" was reflected in her characterization of both Hero & heroine! This romance has everything, action, suspense and love story that for those who like their romance to be the sole focus in the book, then look no Further! It pleased me immensely that the romance part was not overshadowed by other plots, but was a constant presence in the book and it allowed the reader to know both hero & heroine! The emotional depth was so well crafted, I was simply "mesmerized" with each word/actins both characters executed and I was glued to the pages not wanting them to end! I cannot help but memorize the Hero in this picture that fits his description perfectly...A dark, intense, mysterious man...with well build physique, rough around the edges with a shave o'clock stubble! He's the ultimate Hero! A man used to being out in the wilderness and having trained with the military Special Forces as well as with the GhostWalker teams. Most of his life he had been cold and dispassionate in his dealings with people and never been able to form any emotional connection with another human being...until he met her... "Where he was cold and dark, she was as hot as the sun and bathed him in her light" From the moment he saw her, I was devouring his each thought process...how much he wanted her, craved her and wanted to touch her! Seriously, throughout the book there was not a moment he wanted to separate himself from heroine...it may sound a bit extreme, but not in this case..This hero was used to being cold from the inside, not having any feelings/emotions and what he felt for heroine was completely foreign to him! I really enjoyed his transformation..he was caring, possessive and considerate and I was absolutely heartbroken each time there was a portrayal of his vulnerability when he though he was Losing the heroine... Those moments especially were conveyed so beautifully that I had absolutely no doubt in my heart that he "loved the heroine unconditionally" "You're home for me. You and your body. You're home" "I swear I'm going to live here—fucking live here forever. I'm not letting you go, Tansy. I'm staying inside you, part of you, where I know you're safe every minute of the day" "He loved her. The words were in his mind, but they didn't manage to make it to his mouth. But his soul moved. He felt it" "I'd walk through hell barefoot for you, honey" He was without a question a Hero to die for...heroine was his absolute everything and he hoped he would represent something good in her life in spite of his "dark nature" and he gave 100% to prove it to her! Whats more important...he recognized heroine as "his equal" in terms of their abilities and admired her Intelligence, courage, and compassion that he so desperately needed but just did not know it at the time! I like the sound of that..an equal partnership in a relationship, it makes more believable and sincere.."Both" were supporting each other and giving strength...Its a relationship that could set an example in real world! The heroine was also a worthy partner for the Hero! She was beautiful from the outside and inside and despite her compassionate and understanding nature she was not a push over..she stood her ground and fought when needed.... "You can bark out orders all you like, big man, but I'm not under your command. I'm not exactly an amateur at this business, and I don't fall under the category of your underlying So get over that notion as well. Just who do you think you are, anyway?" WOW, I loved that about her that she was so independent and courageous! A true match for the Hero! This book was just perfect in every way! It has everything that I need in a romance and it made me feel so happy inside! That must be a good thing to finish a book with a happy heart! Safe Gang: (view spoiler)[WARNING: It contains some violent scenes with a lot of blood/heroine bleeds a lot due to her gift! Apart from that 100% safe..heroine was a virgin due to her abilities not allowing her to be in close intimate contact with anyone..hero was not a manwhore and there was only mention that "he had his share of women" and that was it! No other References to any sex life and hero was totally devoted..no OW/OM drama (hide spoiler)]

He may not have lifted a hand to her, but he was going to make sure that she was never alone, had no control over her life and thought that that's the way it's supposed to be, but he can go out and do his job because he's the man. The sex scenes came one after another, to the point where you had to ask how they had time to solve the murder.

    This was a rather disappointing read and I can't help but notice the thicker these books are the worst they get. Ms. Feehan should definitely cut the page count, this one would not have suffered from it, and made it a tad more interesting and gripping to read. It is becoming some kind of a ritual for these supposedly suspenseful books to throw the suspense through the window and leave the two leads to have their wicked way with each other.

It is becoming some kind of a ritual for these supposedly suspenseful books to throw the suspense through the window and leave the two leads to have their wicked way with each other. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with steamy sex scenes, but when the sex gets the upper hand on the book's main genre (in this case - suspense), it just gets on my nerves. I started reading this series because it was a mix of two of my favorite genres - suspense and paranormal, but this one unfortunately severely lacked in both. There was too much sex, too little action scenes and too much page count between them, too much oily-sludge infested glimpses into the heroine's mind (and let me tell you if those were supposed to heighten the suspense and adding a thriller effect, they fell quite short) and it was just too damn much repetitive. Okay, when the heroine feels the violence, her mind fills with oily sludge. Gotcha! The hero is a block of ice with icy water running in his veins when he isn't with her. Gotcha! The heroine smells and tastes of cinnamon. Gotcha! The victims locked behind that mind door wail constantly and beg for help. Gotcha! The main villain is a puppet master. Gotcha! (Has anyone else notice the uncanny resemblance to the author's other series? The vampires also have a puppet master. Hm.) Even the sex scenes started repeating themselves...When that happens, yikes. There should've definitely been less pages, a more consistent plot (this one just plainly lagged behind), and a more interesting and involving leading pair. I apologize to all Tansy and/or Kadan fans, but these two were plain boring to me. Luckily we had the pleasure of entertaining some oldies but goodies GhostWalkers (I just love their banter - and the off-key rendition of Cinnamon Girl, hilarious). And the pace did pick up toward the end, though I wished the eight "cleaning actions" were a bit longer, that would've been worth the extra pages.

    Hunting teams competing with each other for points earned by murder, rape and bloodshed, Murder Game is an interesting book indeed. Although this book is brilliant and fun, it's not one of my favorites. Looking forward to Kadan's character, this book was somewhat of a disappointment. Below you will see two quick notations on the origin and idea of GhostWalkers and their explosive union with their women.

Below you will see two quick notations on the origin and idea of GhostWalkers and their explosive union with their women. The relationship is totally rockin awesome and I adore how Tansy shakes up his silent resolve. Kadan has always been the cool, collected Ghostwalker. It's amazing what will change when your genetically altered mate lands your lap. The wind shifted and carried her scent to him. Kadan's body tightened savagely in response. His body knew her instantly. She looked like some wild, pagan offering. Untamed, seductive. For him. He went very still, his breath catching in his lungs. Instant awareness shook him. He'd certainly had his share of women, but he never reacted like this-a vicious, brutal response of his body and mind, everything in him reaching toward her. "He did other things too. He has a breeding program, matching the girls, who are now women, with men he experimented on in the military. He created several GhostWalker teams. I'm a member of one of those teams. I agreed to be psychically enhanced. At the time, we didn't know he took those experiments even further without our consent. He enhanced us genetically as well as paired us with the women from his earlier experiments. Our best guess is that he hopes to create unique soldiers from the unions." Tansy must remain secluded to avoid contact with other people and objects that overwhelm her with their violent history. Forced into agreement, she assists Kadan with locating the serial killing teams. Using puzzle pieces left at the crime scenes, she must relive every crime in hopes of finding the teams and the puppet master. This book has an intriguing story to it. I like the idea. It just didn't do it for me. I recommend this book to mature adults only. I'm sure it will entertain anyone who is looking forward to a fantastic story. If you have read any Christine Feehan books but have yet to read this series, begin with Shadow Game. This series is outstanding and well worth the read! ~Happy reading!

    This was, by far, my least favorite book of the series thus far. And while I didn't struggle to get through it, I did find myself skimming - and I never skim. Why didn't I like the book? Kadan. He'd been intriguing in previous books and I was quite looking forward to his story. Unfortunately, Feehan opted to take the character in a direction that I didn't care for. I like a dominant alpha hero who is withdrawn and a bit moody and dangerous - but Kadan went way beyond that. His dominance read like This was, by far, my least favorite book of the series thus far.

His dominance read like an abusive boyfriend to me, and there is nothing sexy or appealing about that (threats that he wouldn't allow her to leave, telling her what she could and couldn't do and his continual need to make his point by putting his hand around her throat - to name a few). I also found the sex to be a bit over the top and distracting in this one. They were constantly going at it, from the moment they met, leaving me surprised that they some how mustered up the strength and interest to actual solve the mystery. This has in no way put me off the series, it simply introduced me to a pairing I don't care for. Meh...

    I can't believe how disappointed I was in this book. I really liked Kaden from previous books but his story was not at all what I expected. This book was 423 pages long and was padded with so much sex it actually made the story disjointed. A good 100 pages could have been cut and it would have flowed better. Also Kaden was a caveman hard arse and Tansy was jello. Bleh, this could have been so much better, the premise was good. I can't believe how disappointed I was in this book.

First we have the plot, a short story arc within the greater story arc of the Ghostwalker series. We also have the romance. I felt very differently about the two. The good; was the physic teams plot and the hunt for the rogue murders which, on its own would have rated at least 3*. In previous novels, we heard that there was a suspicion of rogue Ghostwalkers killing people and that someone is going to have to hunt them down. In this book that is integrated well into the narrative so that even though it has been a while since I read the last of the series, I knew where in the overall story arc we were at. Kadan Montague, the leading man, has been tasked by someone high up with finding the rogue killers and he has decided that the best way to do that is to bring in psychically inclined tracker Tansy Meadows, who used to work with the police but allegedly lost her powers. Tansy is a wildlife photographer out in a park when Kaden hunts her down, the story of the 'deadly game' being played by rogue psychics is a good story well constructed and well paced. I liked Tansy's powers, I liked the whole construct of THAT part of the story. I did NOT like the romance/lust side of the book. I found it rapey and creepy and icky and there was way too much of it for me to say I really enjoyed this book overall, even skim reading didn't always make up for it. On its own this rates 1* of even a DNF. The author has written into her plot a really good excuse for the insta-love that is a trademark of this series, I actually really respect that tactic so that part did not bother me. From the start though, the sex was creepy. Really, really creepy. Kaden uses some psychic mind power shtick to make Tansy have sex with him the first time and far from sexy it read like rape to me. I know, there are erotic themes using rape, but here the author is crying 'love' while I am reading 'force'. Ick. Then, for the next 400 pages, interspersed with plot we have Kaden telling Tansy things like 'You belong to me' 'you will do whatever I tell you' 'I will not let you do that' ect ect. Domestic violence vibe, to be honest, NOT sexy, icky. Reading a romance that reads like domestic abuse and rape is not my thing. Obviously. many other readers loved it, no judgement. A further problem for me though, was that I actually liked the characters of both Kaden and Tansy, just in combination they were far from enticing. Now, even if Kaden did not keep threatening Tansy with what he would do if she didn't obey him absolutely, the sex writing was not great. There is a thing that American lust writers do that squeaks me out each time: womb sex! 'She felt it in her womb' '... her womb spasmed' these sound like medical emergencies to me, not like something sexy. The '...he hit the back of her cervix' was even worse! That is biologically impossible as far as I can triangulate, whatever the 'back' might be (though at least there are nerves in the cervix, unlike the uterus). Also euphemisms like 'mushroom head' and 'feminine passage' are uproariously funny - though I fear they are not meant to be. Sigh. I really am pretty invested in how the overall story arc might progress. I think the Ghostwalkers is a great concept, I see Whitney as a good antagonist but I do feel that as the series progresses there is less of the good stuff; the psychic powers, the team work and the paramilitary theme. And, about that; in the first book Ryland was the team leader but in this one Kaden is. I didn't much care for that it seemed unlikely. Team leaders, captains and other ranks should not be on a roster system, someone either is in charge or they are not. Will I, won't I keep going? Certainly not immediately, I need a break from womb references and the DV text inspired gems like Don't ever tell me I can't touch you. Any time. Any place" [pg 175] or "don't threaten me like that. You try to walk out and see what happens" {ph 314] there were more, trust me, a LOT more and they made it feel like very grim reading for me. flag 3 likes · Like  · see review Sep 29, 2020 Shelby rated it really liked it Shelves: paperback, angst, deserve-additional-reads, insta-love, favorite-ongoing-series, first-time, src-fall-2020, violence, military-former-military-merc, psychic-abilities 3.5 StarsSo I'm torn on this one.

I never really felt like there was much development between them both. Though again I loved Tansy's powers and how her psychometry worked to track killers. This one will go in the banks as not one of my favorite in the series even though I loved all the other characters appearances and Tansy herself.

One of many of Lily’s “sisters”, Tansy is one of enhanced girls. As a child, she’d helped the police and the FBI catch murderers with her enhanced gifts. There’s only one draw-back - the voices of the victims, of the murderers, stay in her head. Whitney had taken away her defenses and she can’t block them. After the last episode, she’d spent a long time in a hospital until she believed her mental stability would allow her to function.Now, up in the Sierras, she’s working her freelance job, getting pictures for National Geographic. And that’s where Kadan finds her. But when he sees her, his body reacts, instantly. He knows that the enhancing Whitney did included being paired with Tansy, but what he feels is deeper; quickly, to him, Tansy is home. She sees a side of him that not even his closest friends, the other GhostWalkers, have seen.Together, in their struggle, they track down the murderers and who is running the game. Only, he’s a ‘hunter’, and a ‘dreamwalker’, exactly like Tansy. Stopping him just got a lot more complicated.And I so loved this book! I don’t think there is one GhostWalker novel that’s left me disappointed. I waited long enough for Kadan’s story. Kadan, who always seemed so cold, distant, ice in his veins.I can tell you, he met his match with Tansy. She’s a strong woman, determined, like a bulldog who won’t let go once she sinks her teeth into something, no matter the cost to her. Unless it’s sex, she’s not pushover. She stands up to Kadan, like he’s never seen anyone do, and he loves her all the more for it.I think, though, that I’d like to see the next woman be able to stand up a little stronger, to be able to push back when it comes to the sex. They constantly melt and agree to anything - I’d like to see the tables turned, and for at least one of the woman to be able to resist it.What I really liked, the best parts, where when I busted a gut laughing at something the characters did or said. Kadan, the man with ice in his veins, was being teased, and I laughed my a** off. When that recording started playing in the car, I burst out laughing even as Tansy did. Listening to the banter between the men… all the while they’re taking out the bad guys, which is supposed to be serious, and the banter between them had me laughing so hard, I had tears! That, IMO, was THE best parts of the book.Perfect story, plot, characters, ending… the action was superb, the sex scenes tender as much as they are intense,the twists… OMG, the twists! You find out who’s involved in what and it’s actually a shock!Excellent!

Tansy's talent is when she touches a object, the energy about the person that touched that object bombardes her, if its violent energy, it seeps into her mind and she has a hard time staying in control. Currently when this story starts, is she is a photographer so is up in the mountains tracking a mountain lion, since she has a affinity for animals. However, she is shocked to discover that someone has found her, needing her help with the very thing she fears that will fragment her mind forever. Kaden Montague is a Ghostwalker, and has been sent out on a mission to retrieve Tansy and use her to solve the riddle to murders that have been occuring of late, which apparently is a game, that they must solve so they can catch them before its too late, and his Ghostwalker team is compromised. First however, he has to get Tansy to agree with the plan, which she is very hesitant to do, hell even Kaden is hesitant but he knows he needs to be able to track these killers and the best person to do it is Tansy. Both Tansy and Kaden are taken on a rocky road of adventure, intrigue and passion the likes neither of them can control.As always I have always loved reading Christine Feehan, and I could probably re read all of her books. Right now however I am working on re reading her Ghostwalker Series, I just have loved reading this series of hers with such delight and pleasure. I love the thrilling suspense, and the intense passion that rises up between the main characters of each book, and this one was no different, and even after it being the second time that I have read it, gave me a thrill. Murder Game has always been one of my favorites of this series, just because I fall in love with both Kaden and Tansy. Kaden is a Ghostwalker, military man, and appears to be a cold blooded being through and through until he meets Tansy, who softens him up like Jello. Its very amusing and satisfying to watch though, as I am sure all that have read this one understand what I mean by that. Tansy of course, has lived apart from most people because of her psychic abilities, having been part of the group of little girls that Dr. Whitney experiented on. She has to learn to deal with psychic energy, having tracked killers before, and spent some time in the hospital, has her wary of this handsome stranger. When she agree's to help Kaden with tracking these killers, she didn't know what was more at risk her mind becoming fragmented, or her heart doing so. However as these two lost souls connect and work together to solve this dangerous game, they also find a more dangerous game, that one of the risk of True Love. Christine Feehan has done it again, and anyone that likes a good thrilling romance will certainly fall in love with this one! flag 3 likes · Like  · see review Sep 14, 2009 Maryann rated it did not like it Well first I like a good love scene just fine but good grief this was overkill and stupid. Their very first time after knowing each other a couple hours was so unreal and a few pages later after hearing her parents are kidnapped and she is overcome with worry he's having sex with her again. Feehan seems to be all about macho he-men giving the women a little shake to straighten them out and having sex. I usually like a little story in there somewhere!

He doesn't believe his friends could be the murderers but if they are to blame he will have to take them down, unsure where to turn for help he decides to contact Tansy who has been known to help the police track down serial killers with her psychic abilities. Tansy has always suffered from a powerful backlash when she uses her abilities and after the last case she worked on left her in a psychiatric ward suffering from a breakdown she decided enough was enough. She told all her contacts that she has lost her ability and took to the wilderness to become a wildlife photographer, avoiding human contact as much as possible. Kaden doesn't believe her ability has gone and one way or another he is going to get her help.I'm a big fan of Christine Feehan's GhostWalker series and Murder Game didn't disappoint. As the series progresses we are discovering more about Whitney and the crazy schemes he has put into place, he may be a genius but he certainly isn't a sane one. I'm beginning to wonder how the GhostWalkers will ever be able to track him down and put a stop to his experiments - he seems to be at least 10 steps ahead of them every time. I'd recommend reading the series in order to make the most of that ongoing story line but I think each of the books can be read as stand alone stories when it comes to the relationship between the main characters.Tansy is probably one of my favourite heroines in the series, she has the ability to touch an object and read the thoughts of the people who have held it in the past. Despite the fact that using this ability causes her a lot of pain and she is never able to get the thoughts of the killers or their victims out of her head she has been helping the police since she was just 13 years old. Knowing that she will feel the pain of the victims with every murder she investigates she is incredibly brave to keep putting herself through so much suffering in order to track down the murderers.Kaden has no idea of the toll Tansy's abilities take on her when he first asks for her help. He is infuriated that she refuses to assist him and finds a way to trick her into touching an object found at one of the murder scenes. After seeing how much she suffers he realises that he can't ask her to help him further but once Tansy has started an investigation she refuses to stop no matter what the risks are. Whenever we've seen Kaden in previous books he has been shown as an ice cold, emotionless killer but as soon as he sees Tansy you start to see him thaw. He is quick to accept that Whitney has genetically paired them and he becomes surprisingly protective of her. My only irritation was the fact that he constantly wanted to take control of every situation, I'd have liked to see Tansy stand up for herself a bit more but this did improve towards the end of the book.If you've read any of the other books in this series then you'll know to expect plenty of hot smut and although Murder Game has a lot of violence it also has some great sex scenes that certainly raise the heat levels. I loved the fact that we get to spend time with some of the GhostWalkers we've already met in previous books, it was nice to find out how Ryland, Gator & Nico are doing and I'm really hoping that we get to see Jeff and Ian's stories soon. If you're a GhostWalker fan you're sure to enjoy this installment and I can't wait to pick up Street Game to find out what happens next. flag 2 likes · Like  · see review Jan 25, 2009 Ally rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition Recommends it for: Any Christine Feehan Fan Recommended to Ally by: No-One Shelves: re-read, 2009, 2010 This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Kaden Montague has been asked to find out which two GhostWalker teams are playing a dangerous Murder Game and to do so he needs elite serial tracker Tansy Meadows help to prove his men are innocent and find the ones who are guilty.

But when Kaden meets Tansy he’s in for a shock because she’s a GhostWalker too and he’s been chemically matched to her. Now its more than just a Murder Game.The GhostWalkers are a team of specially trained men who have been altered psychically and genetically by Dr Whitney to become better soldiers for there country. Only Dr Whitney isn’t all what he seems. He first experimented psychically on a group of orphaned children he collected and then sent them out into the world without the protective barriers in there brains they needed to help them live in the real world. Whitney also chemically paired the men with the girls so they could create the ultimate solider.Tansy is one of those orphaned children she doesn’t remember much of her early childhood she knows she’s different and can’t touch objects of violence because they have a taint on them and she can feel there emotions. She’s been tracking serial killers since she was 13 years old and if she continues her brain will fragment and she’ll go mad with the voices in her head. But Kaden needs her help and will do anything to get her to agree until he realises what Tansy suffers. But by then its too late and Tansy is hooked to the case and can’t rest until the murderers are caught.First I’d like to apologise for taking so long to read this book, although it’s my fourth reading of this book I still couldn’t rush through it and although I’d like that to be my excuse for taking so long to write this review I can’t. I’ve been really ill for the past week and had to read this in three days which is now my longest record to read a book in. Normally I can do it in one sitting so it’s been really strange of me to pick this up and put it down again several times.I first read Murder Game back in January 2009 and I enjoyed this book so much I’ve read it 3 more times since. Kaden is first mentioned in the very first book Shadow Game and he pops in and out through the series and I couldn’t wait to get this book!This is my favourite book, actually its toss up between this and Conspiracy Game which is book #4. Murder Game is amazingly well written and I found the storyline really gripping and never tired of reading it. Tansy is my favourite heroine, possibly ever! She’s strong and doesn’t bend to Kaden unless it really matters to him. She’ll stand up to him and fight for what she wants when it really matters to her. She still fights even when she feels like she’s losing her sanity to all the murderers voices in her head but Kaden would give his life to protect her, she thaws the ice in his veins and turns him to fire.The only thing I didn’t like about Murder Game was the beginning of the story and the way Kaden tries to manipulate Tansy into leaving with him, when she’s refused and told him she can’t do what he wants her to. It’s the way Kaden doesn’t know what to do about his mixed feelings and seems to use them against Tansy. I would include a quote but its a really long one and this review is already really long so I’ll leave it and just say that it’s a great, fabulous read!

Now, he says Bishop is just a nickname. And we need to ignore the fact that the spelling of his first name has changed over time. But I digress.) Kadan is Special Forces soldier who has been psychically and physically enhanced by evil genius scientist Dr Whitney. He is part of the first team of these soldiers, who call themselves Ghostwalkers, that were featured in the first three books. He has been tasked to find solve a string of murders, which appear to have been committed by fellow Ghostwalkers. So he seeks out a former serial killer profiler, Tansy. He realizes immediately that –1– she is one of the female Ghostwalkers enhanced by Whitney in her childhood; and –2– Whitney has chemically altered the two of them to be undeniably attracted to each other. Think turbo-pheromones.Anyway, Tansy doesn’t want to help. The way her talent works is that she touches an object and can see into the souls of those who handled it before her. But handling that energy takes a serious toll, especially if the soul she encounters his evil or violent. The voices of the victims linger in her mind; at one point she even had a breakdown –and that’s why she quit helping the authorities. And why she doesn’t want to help Kadan. She is in no hurry to get away from him, though. He is an anchor, which helps calm the constant barrage of energy that is always flittering around her. She can even touch him without discomfort. And touch him she does.Kadan doesn’t realize the real impact that tracking killers has on Tansy. Until he tricks her into touching an object from one of the murder scenes. Once he sees the toll it takes, he tries to release her from the case, but she decides the killers need to be stopped. Turns out, there is a game going on that pits two teams of Ghostwalkers against each other. They committing murders with specific targets to gain points for their team in a macabre competition. As the story progresses, Tansy works to uncover the members of the teams, and the elusive “puppet master” organizing the games.The chemistry between Kadan and Tansy is great. But like many of Feehan’s alpha males, Kadan is a bit too much. He insists on taking charge of every situation and making all the decisions. And it irks me that he insists Tansy allow him to touch her whenever and however he wants. Despite that, their scenes are sexy and he clearly needs her like he’s never needed anyone.I liked Kadan’s story better than the other stories featuring his group. But I prefered the SEAL stories. This one didn’t touch the intensity of the Norton books, despite a solid and interesting plot. 4 stars. flag 2 likes · Like  · see review Sep 16, 2015 Shannon Latour rated it it was ok This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

I don't mind sex scenes - but these were too frequent and Kadan was WAY too needy! He certainly acted like he was chemically altered to be with her. If they are both telepaths - why do they need so much reassurance that they love each other? It's super-dumb. The book in general would be described best in one word ...SKEEZY. So, between their graphic sex scenes you have a group of guys committing heinous murders. So if lust AND bloodlust are your bag -READ THIS BOOK! You'll adore it. Hey, your parents were kidnapped and they have only so many hours before the bad guys kill them - what do you do? - Hmmmmm, OH! I've got it! Have sex first with my new boyfriend THEN think about a plan to save them! My question is...if there are two teams committing murders in, let's call it a 'Murder Game', and there are points and everything - Which team won? flag 2 likes · Like  · see review Aug 27, 2009 Darcy rated it liked it Shelves: 2013, military, psychic-gifts, audio-book, law-enforcement, pnr, 2009 I liked this book but did feel like Tansy just gave up to and in to Kaden much too fast for what we knew of her character.

It is interesting to watch a once brillant man cross the line and become a mad man. In each book I think that is it, he can't possible do anything worse but he does. This journey we see of him to me has become more interesting than the main story of the indivdual couple.Learning about the 1-2 other Ghost Walker teams and how they were created was interesting. In the end I liked how each of them were dealt with in the way they needed to be, especially the one who was in the game against his will. flag 2 likes · Like  · see review View all 3 comments « previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 next »
