My thoughts:

Loved this book the second time even more! I personally find serial killer stuff highly disturbing, so some parts were tough for me. Poor Tansy, using her psychic gifts to hunt serial killers from a very young age, even without having any psychic barriers built up. That's courage. The storyline about the murders was very dark and twisted. The psychic elements ramped up the tension and made this even more visceral a read. Despite the unpalatable aspects of these

I'm obviously an addict. Christine Feehan's books are like crack for me. I know what's going to happen. I know what her heroes are like. I know there's going to be a happy ending, and in her 'GhostWalkers' series I know there will be violence...and justice. So why do I keep reading them? Because she manages to pull me into the minds of both the hero (and he's always deliciously tortured!) and the heroine. I become attached to them and can't stop reading until I see IN PRINT that they're together...more
Yes, the GhostWalkers are back with a vengeance in this latest installment in the series! I'd been dying to read Kadan's story since I met him in Shadow Game - the cold and quite badasses never fail to attract my attention, LOL - so I was more than happy when I finally got to read his book.

As the story begins, Kadan is assigned to identify and eliminate (aka kill) the assassin(s) responsible for several murders that seem to have been commited by one (or more) GhostWalkers. He trusts his fellow t...more

Recommends it for: Fans of cold, brooding, dangerous uber alpha heroes who need and demand sex constantly!

4-4 ½ stars – Paranormal Romance/Romantic Suspense

It took me a while to get through this one because I wasn't in the right mood when I first started reading it and had to put it aside for a while. I tried to go back to it a few times and found that I still wasn't in the right mindset for Feehan's overly wordy and repetitive writing style or her frequently used Feehan-isms.

I finally got into the story when I was in the mood for something dark, angsty, and steamy. I love dangerous alpha heroes an...more
Loved it! Another saga in the GhostWalker world were paranormal combine with military skill(s), toss in some very hot guys with good hearts, pair them with girls struggling with their powers who become the ray of sunshine in their darkness, add some suspense, superbly woven storyline, some really hot love scenes and you have a GhostWalker book.

Wonderful! Kadan "The Bishop" Montague appeared in several of the previous books. He was always cold and methodical. When he was "sent" to retrieve Tansy...more
5++++ Stars The Seventh Installment in Feehan's Ghostwalker Series and I loved every thing about it!

*sighs*....My Ghostwalkers...I love them all! They are warriors, born in the wrong century, men with honor, codes, patriotic and a way of life that was politically incorrect. These are some "lean, mean, killing machines"...and I love them:-)

This is Kadan Montague's story and I have been looking forward to this one since his introduction in Shadow Game. Large, heavily muscled with brute strengh, h...more
This was a good entry into the Ghostwalkers series. The hero was great, he was a quite a tough guy who was blindsided by his intense and immediate feelings for the heroine. There was a LOT of sex in this one, not that I mind but CF was bringing out all of her normal catch phrases (I was thinking about starting a drinking game while reading it: everytime she wrote velvet over steel, clenching heat, lightening, molten lava or any other Feehanisms then I should take a drink! - but I would have been...more

Hunting teams competing with each other for points earned by murder, rape and bloodshed, Murder Game is an interesting book indeed.

Although this book is brilliant and fun, it's not one of my favorites. Looking forward to Kadan's character, this book was somewhat of a disappointment. Below you will see two quick notations on the origin and idea of GhostWalkers and their explosive union with their women.

The relationship is totally rockin awesome and I adore how Tansy shakes up his silent resolve....more

This was, by far, my least favorite book of the series thus far. And while I didn't struggle to get through it, I did find myself skimming - and I never skim.

Why didn't I like the book? Kadan. He'd been intriguing in previous books and I was quite looking forward to his story. Unfortunately, Feehan opted to take the character in a direction that I didn't care for. I like a dominant alpha hero who is withdrawn and a bit moody and dangerous - but Kadan went way beyond that. His dominance read like...more
This was a rather disappointing read and I can't help but notice the thicker these books are the worst they get. Ms. Feehan should definitely cut the page count, this one would not have suffered from it, and made it a tad more interesting and gripping to read.

It is becoming some kind of a ritual for these supposedly suspenseful books to throw the suspense through the window and leave the two leads to have their wicked way with each other. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with steamy sex...more
This was a series of sex scenes tied together by a pyschic serial killer mystery. When you're reading about brutality, your eyes can skip what it can't handle. When you're listening, you get the full force. Feehan describes evil in its truest form. The narrator was excellent. But the story, the romance between Kaden and Tansy, was too fast and too sex based. Not to mention that Kaden's behavior was really not short of abusive. He may not have lifted a hand to her, but he was going to make sure t...more
Who do you think wins this game?

Murders are happening along the coasts, and Kadan has been ordered to find out who, why, and stop them. He’s also ordered to keep it under wraps - no one on his team is allowed to know what’s going on. For the murders are suspicious - whoever is doing it, is getting in and out in a flash, no witnesses, no evidence, nothing. They’re being made to look like it’s the GhostWalkers. Someone high up has always wanted them gone. Now they’re being threatened - a force wan...more
At last! I did it! This book is finally over. I cannot even begin to list all the things I didn't like in this book, because they are so many.
This book for me was bad and I mean bad! Hero and heroine unbelievable, unnecessary violence and cruelty at every corner, a very lame plot, and I'm not talking about H/h relationship or the dialogues between them, or between the hero and his comrades... when I say bad I mean BAAAAAAD!

The only good thing about this book is that I got to finish it!
Cat Hunter
I can't believe how disappointed I was in this book. I really liked Kaden from previous books but his story was not at all what I expected. This book was 423 pages long and was padded with so much sex it actually made the story disjointed. A good 100 pages could have been cut and it would have flowed better. Also Kaden was a caveman hard arse and Tansy was jello. Bleh, this could have been so much better, the premise was good.
More like a 4.5. I have to say that while I was rading I had to keep glancing at the author to make sure I wasn't reading Lora Leigh. This book had some pretty similar elements to a LL book. Good book though.

I liked this book but did feel like Tansy just gave up to and in to Kaden much too fast for what we knew of her character. Learning both of their backgrounds was heartbreaking. It did make it seem like they were kindred spirits.

I think that Tansy's talent was a unique one. One that she was good at even thought using it hurt her. Watching Kaden fight with himself over seeing Tansy using her talent was hard. He needed / wanted to find out the info, but he had a hard time seeing her hurt herself. B...more
Well first I like a good love scene just fine but good grief this was overkill and stupid. Their very first time after knowing each other a couple hours was so unreal and a few pages later after hearing her parents are kidnapped and she is overcome with worry he's having sex with her again. Feehan seems to be all about macho he-men giving the women a little shake to straighten them out and having sex. I usually like a little story in there somewhere!
I have been waiting for Kadan's book for so long. I so badly wanted to get inside his head and get to know him. He definitely passed any and all expectations I had going into this.

He's a man of steel, dangerous, lethal, capable, controlling, dominant... He's an alpha male. But we got to see a completely different side of him when he was with Tansy. She thawed the ice within him. He was so loving towards her, so tender and thoughtful, so possessive and utterly protective. It was so heartwarming....more

Tansy Meadows was the heroine in this latest installment of the "Game" series by Christine Feehan, along with Kaden Montague. Tansy's "gift" is that she can both dreamwalk and read the thoughts of others simply by touching items they have touched. The only drawback is that she retains those thoughts and feelings, even if they are violent, which have led to her having a mental breakdown.

One thing I found in this book was that it was absolutely too long. I was already disinterested in the ending 1...more
As some of you might already know, I love this series, so it probably isn’t too hard to know what I think of the book in general. :-) Loved it. Now if its possible, I want to contradict myself here. I loved this book but at the same time was disappointed. I had a few issues with it. One of which I find kind of funny and wasn’t expecting to even want to say this. But, for me personally there was way too much time spent with the couple simply having sex. The conflict which is supposed to grow and...more
Murder Game,book 7 in Christine Feehan's GhostWalker series, is the story of Kadan Montague and Tansy Meadows. Psychically and genetically enhanced Special Forces soldier (aka GhostWalker) Kadan Montague, is on the trail of a band of serial killers. Part of a sick "murder game," these killers work to implicate the GhostWalkers in their crimes, in an effort to eliminate the super-soldiers. Kadan needs the help of powerful psychic Tansy Meadows if he wants to clear his fellow team-members of murde...more
I have been a dedicated fan of the GhostWalker series from the very first book Shadow Game, eagerly awaiting each new release. I was disappointed with a couple of the books in the middle of the series and liked the previous book, Predatory Game, but Murder Game has to be one of my favourites. We get to meet some of the previous GhostWalkers again, as well as submerge ourselves in an awesome thriller. I wasn't able to read the book in a couple sittings but had to read a couple chapters here and t...more
When a spate of murders across the country look like they have been committed by GhostWalkers Kaden is given the task of tracking down the killers and eliminating them. He doesn't believe his friends could be the murderers but if they are to blame he will have to take them down, unsure where to turn for help he decides to contact Tansy who has been known to help the police track down serial killers with her psychic abilities. Tansy has always suffered from a powerful backlash when she uses her a...more
So.... truly, another example as to why Christine Feehan's books inevitably ALWAYS wind up on my "Favs" bookshelf. Espicially her Ghostwalker series. There hasn't been ONE that I haven't loved. Probably because they usually follow the same mold, but hey, if something works, why change it!?

Kadan and Tansy are SMOKING hot together. They literally light up the pages with their heat! I couldn't put it down, and this one is bigger than the others; at least it seemed like it to me.

I absolutely loved t...more
This is a really good book but it's not up to the standards that Ryland and Lilly set in the very first "Game" book. I felt that the romance and sex was a little much in this book. It's hard to get into the suspense and the thought that a serial killer that's also a dreamwalker and a tracker could get Tansy (the female lead) at anytime when she's off having sex every spare second with Kadan (the male lead). However I thought that the action suspense of this book was actually one of the best of t...more
This is my favorite of the series so far. I thought Jack and Ken were dangerous and dominating. Wow Kaden has them beat hands down. I was kinda worried cause Kaden is not only very dominating but he has some serious control issues as well. But Tansy was awesome. Loved her gift ( never ever would want it but still cool) but she balanced Kaden, gave him the warmth where he is cold. The guys had me grinning with their teasing Kaden with Cinnamon . This story was fast paced and had some serious viol...more
i watched the sun come up as i finished this book. i just could not put it down.

this was the first ghostwalker book i read. i wish i started with book 1. there was not a whole lot of explanation as to who and what the ghostwalkers even were. i caught on fairly quickly so it was not the end of the world. another review mentioned this read a lot like a Lora Leigh novel, and they were right. i saw a lot of her elements in this one. which is probably why i absolutely loved it. this was one of the be...more
Another page-turning saga about the Ghostwalkers [and the ladies they love:]. Kadan and Tansy make great a hero/heroine/couple. Many characters from previous Ghostwalker books appear in supporting roles. Dr. Whitney is still slime, but not the only slimy character in existence. If violence and bloody justice offends, stay away. Good, action-oriented read.

I really enjoy this series, but I haven't kept up with it. This one has Tansy, an enhanced psychic, and Kadan, a Ghost Walker, teaming up to solve serial murders that might be committed by other Ghost Walkers.

I love the concept in this series of genetically and surgically enhanced superhumans, though I could do without the "made for each other" part. Personally, I don't find it at all compelling that the characters can't help feeling extremely physically attracted to each other. It muddies the...more

“His lips slid over her ear. "My mind shares yours. If you're determined to go through with this, then know whatever this takes you, you won't be alone, Tansy. I'm strong. I'll find your mind and I'll bring you back."
"Last time I broke into a million pieces."
"I'll find each one.”
“Why do I have to do this?" Gator demanded.

Cuz you're such a pretty boy. Our photographer isn't going to fall for one of us as the tied up model," Nico pointed out.

Dumbest plan you've ever come up with," Gator rumbled. "Offering myself all trussed up like a Christmas turkey to a serial killer who likes to torture people isn't too smart.”
