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.Read more ›
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
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.
