5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 8 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was briliant. I enjoyed most of Christine Feehan's Dark Series but this was better (which I read after this one). The characters and story line was well written and I didn't put the book down until I finished it and I hope she continues and writes more on some of the other characters.
The basic idea of the story was a scientist uses his daughter and a team of soldiers to develop thier telepahthy skills with espionage thrown in. This is not what I would call a soppy or mushy book and would highly recommend it if you liked the dark series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary! 14 April 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a fan of Feehan's Dark Series, and I must admit to purchasing Shadow Game merely on a whim. But let me say, I'm not disappointed and I've already ordered the sequel Mind Game.
If you like sci-fi stories with a drop of romance, a whole lot of suspense, wonderful characters and a fantastic,but extremely palusible storyline, this book is a match made in heaven for you. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars FAB !!! 28 April 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read some of the "Dark" series by Christine, but they start to merge into the same format, even though they are very good! But this is a great read and from the beginning the characters are intersting and it just gets better as you turn the pages. I highly recommend it to anyone and also to read "mind game" afterwards, the scenes between the lovers are VERY Hot, well done Christine, I cant wait for the next !!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Feehan does it again! 10 Oct 2009
By Ladybubbles VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was a little surprised when Christine Feehan deviated from her magic centred works and decided to write a sci-fi, militaristic series. I could not be anymore impressed! The Ghostwalker series...

Along with other military soldiers, Captain Ryland Miller volunteered for a government funded psychic enhancement program. The men begin to suspect something is amiss when a few of their fellow soldiers have died and they've been put under constant surveillance. They're even locked in state of the art cages.

The experiments are being conducted by Dr. Peter Whitney who suddenly disappears, but not before bringing his daughter Lily in to help him. Lily is thrown in at the deep end and is unsure why here father has brought her in on this assignment. Much to her surprise, she has a deep, instantaneous connection with Ryland. Together maybe they can save themselves and their team

Shadow Game is a colourful miasma of action, sensuality and brilliance, beautifully woven into a really, great storyline. But the best of it is the dialogue: It's a great blend of wit, romance and tough-guy talk that was mesmerizing and entertaining. The plot unfolds at a slow pace but the almost animal attraction between Lily and Ryland hits you hard in the face from the moment they meet. There are so many twists to the story that you're left with a few unanswered questions, but the end leaves you satisfied and anxious for the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great series 14 Dec 2007
By Claudia
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Shadow Game - Book 1 of the Ghostwalker series.

A new series by Christine Feehan. Having read all of the Dark Series books, I began to wonder how were the other series she began writing. On her webpage you can read the first chapter of every book that has been released or is about to be released. I read the first chapter of this book, and when I finished it, I wanted to know more about the Ghostwalkers. This series deals with a special unit that has undergone some brain experiencies to enhance their psychic abilities. The book offers many actions scenes, more than the ones on Dark Series. I recommend this book to anyone. If you like romance and action, this author combines both with expertice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Christine Feehan 27 Sep 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all of Christine Feehan's 'Dark Series' and loved all of them, so I decided to try one of her other series...the first being Shadow Game. I couldn't put it down, the plot involves a Dr Whitney who tries to enhance the psychic abilities of an elite group of men, but when things start to go wrong and the men start dying he brings his daughter Lily in to help, as she herself has natural psychic abilities. Capt Ryland Miller is drawn to Lily through their powers and sexual attraction, only she can help save him and his men. Very hot reading.

I found that this book had a great thriller story line with alot of hot romance mixed in. I will definately be reading her next one Mind Game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept but missed the mark for me 18 Feb 2006
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the strength of the Amazon reviews, and because I had read Wild Rain and enjoyed it (part of a different series by Christine Feehan).
This book is about a group of special forces men who have had their natural psychic talents enhanced by a doctor but things have gone wrong. His daughter, Lily, finds herself helping the men after her father is killed and her help is successful because she, too, was psychically enhanced by her father. Lily and the leader of the men, Captain Ryland Miller, together work to find out who is responsible for the death of her father.
I enjoyed the book as I was reading it but I was also disappointed. The reviews had been very positive, but I found that the book lacked depth – not in the subject matter, but in the relationship between the main characters. There was plenty of sex, supposedly there was a meeting of minds and emotions, but it all felt very flat and one-dimensional to me. I suppose the basic problem was that there was no tension within the story – they met, instantly fell completely and utterly in love/lust, and that was that. No confusion, no learning to love each other more, no mistrusting and misunderstanding which tends to be the focus of all good novels. There’s little interest in a romance when it runs without a hitch.
The sex scenes I found boring and there were too may of them. I was reading this book for the view of different possibilities within this world, the world of military applications of psychic powers – but I found I was reading a book about sex. And someone needs to offer Christine Feehan another adjective to go with “breasts” – she only seemed able to use “generous”, and used it multiple times. It jarred.
I suppose this book was OK but somehow it didn’t really connect with me. I’ll read the others if I come across them in the library but I wouldn’t bother buying them.
