Like Shadow Game, Mind Game is about 50-100 pages too long. Christine Feehan isn't a bad author, but she has a tendency to repeat certain phrases, snatches of exposition, and bits of dialog over and over again in her books. She obviously doesn't trust her readers to understand anything the first time she explains it. When I wasn't cursing Feehan for this frustrating idiosyncrasy in her writing style, I managed to enjoy this book. The characters were interesting, the plot was compelling, and I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the Louisiana bayou setting.

After reading Shadow Game, I wanted to know more about Nicolas Trevane, and I wasn't disappointed with his development in Mind Game. Unfortunately, Dahlia did not feel like a good fit for him. She just seemed too damaged and needy (in spite of her annoyingly frequent and obviously untrue assertions that she could take care of herself) to pair well with such a coldly efficient warrior like Nicolas. That's not to say that I disliked Dahlia. I just wished that she wasn't quite so helpless.

I really hope the rest of the books in this series are not quite so wordy. Feehan has some great ideas, but her execution tends to be a bit heavy-handed.
