3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept but missed the mark for me, 18 Feb. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadow Game (Ghostwalker Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
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.
