Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Having fast made a name for herself in the vampire romance realm, Feehan (Dark Symphony, etc.) now turns her attention to other supernatural powers in this swift, sensational offering. When Lily Whitney's adopted father asks her to act as consultant on a project involving the development of advanced psychic powers, she is stunned to learn that he is experimenting on men from an elite military squadron. The men, lead by Capt. Ryland Miller, are separated and caged like lab rats in an underground facility where they have learned to communicate with each other telepathically, a talent Lily has had since birth. In true romance form, Lily and Ryland share an instant attraction, which leads to a few intriguing sexual liaisons (such as the sequence where Ryland enters Lily's dream). After Lily's father is murdered, she discovers that he harbored some despicable secrets, but that doesn't stop her from searching for his killer. At times it's difficult to overlook the story's improbabilities (e.g., Lily can move objects, but when in danger, she can't help herself) and Feehan's overly dramatic prose ("Small bolts of lightening whipped in his bloodstream"; "Tongues of fire raced along her skin"); however, this is still the sultry, spine-tingling kind of read that her fans will adore.

From Booklist

In Feehan's latest paranormal, sizzling sex scenes both physical and telepathic pave the road to true love for brilliant billionaire scientist Lily Whitney and Captain Ryland Miller, the leader of a squad of psionically gifted soldiers who have been imprisoned and separated from each other after receiving life-threatening enhancements. When Lily's father called her in to consult on a top-secret project he was working on for the government, he had no idea that he was signing his own death warrant or that his beloved daughter with her psychic talents would witness his murder and become a target for the traitors who were bending his project to their own evil purposes. Ryland lends his psychic strength to Lily and ignites a passion that brings him and his men into her high-security estate. Action, suspense, and smart characters make this erotically charged romance an entertaining read. Diana Tixier Herald

The only problem some people have with this book, I think, is the addition of a storyline. In the Carpathian romances Feehan created, the stories was mainly about love, and situations were added for that love to occurr and grow. In this current novel, there's actually a bit more in the telling dealing with pychic powers and struggles for politcal power. Lily Whitney is the daughter of a well known, wealthy scientist. She's brought onto a project of his dealing with the enhancement of psychic abilities, a field in which she knows plenty because she herself posseses them. When her father is murdered, he sends her one last message, telapathically, telling her to free the men of the current experiment and correct his past mistakes. The actual freeing of the men takes place in about the last half of the book, which is a rediculously long amount of time when you take into consideration the extent of the Ghostwalkers' powers, but it allows Lily to do a little bit of the sleuth thing and find out some interesting tidbits about her past.
While it was interesting and sort of a relief to actually read something different from Feehan, she seems to want to make up for it with excess sex. Towards the end, I felt that she focused more on that than developing the story. And I never really got a feel for the characters. It seemed like Feehan should have worked on making them more understandable emotionally, instead of mainly writing of the central character's intense lust for each other. It got repetative, I am sorry to say, which in a romance novel isn't a good thing.
This also makes me point out that, here, Feehan has tried to create something like a family among Lily, her hired hands, and the other men. But it doesn't quite work. Lily hardly gets to know any of the characters.

The government is experimenting again and you guessed it, something has gone wrong. A specially recruited group of psychic men from the Special Forces headed by Captain Ryland Miller have agreed to have their psychic abilities enhanced, thus the "Ghostwalkers" are created. Greed breeds evil and when mixed with the military you can be assured their inherent need for secrecy will add another layer of problems.
Dr. Paul Whitney headed up the Ghostwalker project, however, Colonel Higgens has stepped in to take the project in a different direction. Dr. Whitney brings in his daughter, Dr. Lilly Whitney to help discover why Captain Miller's team is dying, and then ends up murdered. Lilly's last contact with her father comes thru her psychic abilities and begins the hunt for who is killing the Ghostwalkers as well as their creator. Lilly and Ryland are thrown together to solve her fathers murder and save the lives of his remaining men. Their psychic link forms a bond that deepens even though the information Lilly uncovers in her fathers lab rocks her belief in herself and any emotions she feels.
Ms Feehan's new series has murder, betrayal and greed forming the basis of her new storyline. Genetic manipulation, straight from todays headlines, makes for a gritty edge to the first of what I hope will be a long continuing series. I've never been disappointed in a Feehan novel and this one is no exception. Her recurring theme of strong men and the independant women who love them is one of the best reasons to pick up Shadow Game. Be prepared with a drink and time to read as you won't want to put it down until you are done. I've been reading the "Dark" series for over 3 years now and never thought that I would find a better group of men to read about, but I must admit that The Ghostwalkers may give them a run for the money

Like many fans out there, I first began reading Christine Feehan through her Dark Series, which I really enjoy. So I decided to give her newest book "Shadow Game" a chance, even though it is not part of the Dark Series.
Shadow Game started strongly, and the premise was interesting. Both the main characters, Lily and Ryland, also seemed very interesting and their interactions were in typical Feehan style, wrought with humor and sexual tension. The secondary characters added to the background and it is obvious that Feehan plans to write more sequels to this book later on.
However, by the middle of the book, the story started to drag and by the end it lost steam. The book involved some scenes of Lily and Ryland, which I felt were not really necessary to the storyline (Sure I like the love scenes like any one else, but after awhile it became repetitive.) I found myself skipping pages. As a result, it felt like the storyline was pushed to the side. At the end, everything ends abruptly. The bad guys are found out and caught in one simple twist. The whole thing turned out to be anticlimatic.
All in all, it was ok. Not great reading but a passable attempt by Christine Feehan. Hopefully she will do better next time, if she does decide to continue with this series.

I have to admit that I wasn't excited when I bought this book. I've been waiting rather unpatiently for Dark Melody and wasn't even sure I wanted to read this one. But Christine Feehan totally suprised me! I won't write a storyline about this book as several reviewers have done it already but let me just say that I couldn't put this book down! I read it in one night. I didn't expect to like this book so much and it's obvious to me that she's setting up for another series with these characters. I'll be waiting for the next book!!
