A previous reviewer has said an awful lot about the plot, much of which is perfectly accurate in terms of content so it's pointless repeating it. Yes, lactating breasts seem to feature largely in the sex scenes (which is not awfully appealing, I must say) and I would agree that the series seems to have lost its way in this book, but I have different reasons for thinking this. Whitney was supposed to be dead at the end of the first book in this series - the story arc that followed was then about Ghostwalkers finding their mates - either by coming across them by accident, or through knowing about them and 'rescuing' them. Then the idea of Whitney still being alive was introduced and a faction that want to exterminate all Ghostwalkers, and the whole story arc became rather confused. We didn't just get books about a male/female relationship, we got books about a relationship set in the context of Whitney's 'back story' and mess of 'others'. And it is this back story which is now confused, makes no sense and just isn't logical.

Up to now, Whitney appears to stop at nothing to get his hands on a baby produced by one of his pairings. So why does Whitney then 'give up' and leave this pairing alone? He even writes a letter to Kane telling him that Rose will be left with him as Kane can so obviously protect her. That simply doesn't follow the development from previous books. It is this lack of continuity that is just flat-out irritating.

I can accept that Ghostwalker babies are different - that didn't bother me (although I agree that they sound a bit creepy) - I can accept that Kane and Rose fell in love before being paired. But from everything that has gone before, the implication is that the Ghostwalkers didn't choose to be paired, and it was done as they were being enhanced.

Whoever wrote the reviews nearly put me off buying this book and I had been so enjoying them however I thought I'd at least give it a go it had to have some angle
Really good I trusted my INSTINCTS
I loved it these books are widening out the story not running out of steam Anyone with good imagination and a real understanding of Christine's books should recognise this Just started reading Samuri again bad reviews why ???? Brilliant as always

I think I am becoming addicted to Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series of books. These are a complex mix of thriller, mystery, paranormal and sexy stories. The ultimate for a good holiday read when you can get right into the plots, Great series, keep writing Christine, I am waiting for the next book to be published so that I can get my teeth into another storyline.

I just dont where to start, the last book was so bad I quit it half way through and vowed never to read the series again even though I have loved and read the rest of the books.
I felt like this story was over half way through, they had declared there love and were safe so I had no idea why there was still half a book to go, nothing really happened lots of action upon action and some more action, it felt pushed and I cant warm to Mack no matter how much I try I have no idea why anyone would love that man he is a bully and a thug and I think this series has finally run out of steam, such a shame as Murder Game is one of my favourite books.

In the last GW book, the male lead, Mack, IMHO was eclipsed by not only Joe Spagnola, an unknown GW and also by Kane, the lead of this book, so I thought that when Kane got his tale, it would be a really good one. It was only ok.

I am not going to go into too much detail, as the book only takes place over some 8-10 weeks, and starts with Kane finding the pregnant Rose and them going on the run when she goes into premature labour at 8 months. From then on, it's nothing but hiding from baddies, running from one place to another, some really, really hot sex - bordering on erotica, name-dropping of many other GW and their partners, and finding out a little more about Javier, who seems to be a bit of an unknown character. I kind of have hopes for his book being a bit mould-breaking, but I'm not going to get over-excited.

Why did I not rate this book higher? Well, Rose was so paranoid, and yes, she was justified to a degree, but in 'real-life' she'd probably have been diagnosed with post-natal depression. On top, she and Kane were apparently already in love with each other when they 'mated under duress' - - just from having seen each other at a distance a few times before the actual deed. And the author seemed obsessed with lactating boobs, which made an appearance in practically every love scene.

Most freaky of all was the baby, Sebastian, who yes, we know comes from enhanced GW parents, but come on, to be rolling over and attempting to crawl at 8 weeks old, looking over his mother's shoulder and seeing a baddy, then going still and silent to alert her to danger, 'knowing' who were the baddies and who were the goodies, understanding what everyone was saying and feeling...not realistic.

If like me, you've been waiting ages to read this book, pre-ordered it way in advance and had high hopes, you'll also, like me, most likely be disappointed with Feehan's latest novel. Upto now I've got and read all her books, especially the Ghostwalker series, but this book just didn't cut the mustard I'm afraid. I was super excited to read it, the book itself is bigger and the text is easier to read (not that really tiny text as with previous books and alike). Anywho, its the story of Kane and Rose, whom we became aware of during Jamie and Mack's novel. So, Rose is pregnant with Kane's baby, thanks to good'ol daddy Whitney. The history us regular ghostwalker fans are well aware of. Rose has the baby, and pretty much spends to whole book dealing with paranoia. She was all, does he love me? do I love him? and had major trust issues to the point of insanity. This was a big downer for me and pretty much ruined the whole book. I couldn't connect with her character at all, she was so miserable and constantly second guessing herself and everyone around her; I simply couldn't come to like her and it was a huge distraction. Kane's character I loved in the previous books and he's okay in this to. You can certainly relate to him more in this and when he delivers her baby, yeesh, you gotta hand it to the man!. Overall, if your a regular Ghostwalker reader than your gonna wanna read this regardless, however, for me it was one of the weakest feehan books I've read and its very long-winded. Seeing how its taken Feehan (yeah I know she has other novels to) like a year, to get this book out there, it was a big disappointment for me and she could have done better. Alas its not deterred me from Feehan, I'll still follow her novels etc, and I wait with bated breath for Javiers story! :D
