GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

A brief review of my reread this past fall of 2017. Loved this book. Wyatt is messy and he needs to deal with his hormones and jealousy. Pepper, I felt for and loved. The babies were like my favorite part. Also loved Nonny and Team 4, and Cayenne. Hope to finally read Spider Game soon.

Hmm, not sure what to say about this book other than that I read it too freaking long. Seriously, I've started it in January, yes you've read that right and I've only finished it now. I just don't know why it took me so long. There were parts where the story lost my interest and I had to put it down for a (long) while. I think some details could have been left out, it would make the story more dense and more interesting. Aside from that I really liked the plot and all the versatile

Christine Feehan's GhostWalkers is one of my favorite romantic suspense/paranormal series so I was really excited when I saw this book, only to become concerned when I saw the mixed reviews. And, in truth, I can see where everyone is coming from, even those I don't see eye-to-eye with.

It's true the stories are changing from the way they were in the beginning, but they're changing in ways I would expect them to, given Dr. Peter Whitney's diabolical plan and desperation to create the perfect soldiers. The ex

Who would have thought I would LOVE little viper babies?!

After the last book, which was written so poorly, this book was back to what I expect from Feehan. Making me think even more that Samurai Game was not really written by her.

Viper Game was awesome. I loved it! For the most part I was in a happy place the entire book. We are introduced to an entirely new team of Ghost

This did not work for me.

I didn't like Wyatt much, in his demanding selfishness, his I know best and you will obey, and his complete its all about me and I'm going to trap you and never let you go behavior to Pepper. I found it to be controlling and a total turnoff. The balance of power was way out of whack and I find this a borderline abusive relationship. Plus, his on and off dropping his 'ts Cajun schtick drove me bats. I get it already!

Quite frankly, I was left with a bit conflicted feelings on this book, hence my undecisive stars rating....
That much needs to be said that this book is a "positive one" and has many great elements I love to read about in a romance...things like a very strong heroine, or shall I say a badass heroine? Pepper truly shined on the pages with her unique perso

I really love this series and I liked this book and it is almost a 4star book but it missed the mark because of a few things.

First, way Wyatt treated Pepper stepped over the line of Alpha male and into abusive prick and it took a lot of the enjoyment out of the story and even the erotic sex scenes. I liked Pepper and the triplets and thought they were written in a way I would expect girls with no real world experience to behave.

Second, I was a bit disappointed not to see Flame, Gato

Stopping at 35%. I may come back.

Sadly, just not quite working for me. Could be my mood but I just can't stand Wyatt's continued distrust of Pepper. I just feel so badly for her. She is just being made to feel awful in general -- she can't talk or look at anyone. He just thinks about himself. He doesn't trust anything he feels for her at all and doesn't like that he feels anything for her. I am sure it will get better at some point. I know it must, but I just reached my limit I guess.

I was really torn about how to rate this book; 3 stars or 4. To be totally honest, I only went with 4 out of respect for the Ghostwalkers series as a whole. I did enjoy reading this book, and I did like the book. But I didn't love it like I usually love Ghostwalkers novels. The action and passion in Viper Game were off the charts, and entertaining as always. I also liked the revelations that (view spoiler) ...more

Feehans books used to be in my top ten for authors, but now I just don't know what has happened to her writing style.

The men just seemed to be "A" holes.

Wyatt has to be one of the worst I have ever read for a male leading role in a book. From being overbearing and damn right nasty at times to Pepper. The story was very slow moving and at some points totally ridiculous. I don't mind sex scenes in books but for this book it seemed it was just page filling to me. Pointless.

Extremely well read by Tom Stechschulte...His character voice for Grandmère reminded me so much of Dustin Hoffman's character Dorothy in film Tootsie ;)

Looking forward to listening to another book narrated by Tom.

Viper Game would be way better if it were a bit shorter and if the sex scenes weren't as long. Some were so long my eyes glazed over.
The thing with this series is I seem to have lost the reading momentum. I don't intend to read the previous ones ever again.

One of the main issues people have with this is the insta-love. To be fair that is explained in the previous books. What Whitney did to his 'volunteers' without their knowledge is horrible and they are dealing with the side effects one bo/>Viper

a weak 3 stars. An entertaining read, but with issues.

It is late, so I'll just write my muddled thoughts:

The sex scenes were intense, but Wyatt is kind of a prick. The way he treated Pepper when jealous was abhorent. Especially when he knew her insecurities. And his professed reason for becoming a Ghostwalker even though he knew of the evil mastermind behind the program, didn't make sense. His later admission cleared things up, but it took awhile to come out.

The couple here have lethal triplets baby girls.
That monster Whitney create them from H/h sperm and egg he stolen in a vitro.
They both didn't know about the children and become together because of that knowledge.
Very interesting but you need to suspend you disbelief regarding the kids because they’re scarily smart!!
Oh lethal too, did I mention it before? Whitney experimental the most poisonous snakes to them.
Poor kids!!

I had been waiting for this book for quite some time. Was really sad that this is the first book out of all of them that was really boring and didn't live up to the hype. Was way to much sex with so little story . Started out really great then went downhill from there.. I don't know if Christine Feehan is getting bored with writing this series or what?? Just very disappointed..

Wyatt Fontenot has been asked to come back home to the Bayou by his Gran Mere Nonny. She tells Wyatt there are strange things going on in the Bayou. Possibly its the Bayou legend of the Rougarou, a shapeshifter. Wyatt returns home with two of his GhostWalker teammates The Fortunes brother Ezekiel and Malichai Fortunes.

While I've enjoyed Feehan's books in the past, this was a little hard for me to finish. The 'strong' male character, Wyatt, crossed the line several times from strong loving partner to male chauvinist to what I felt was downright misogynist in some scenes. It was one of the few books I skimmed past much of the 'romantic' scenes just to get to the action. The female character, Pepper, is no retiring female. She's strong & been trained by the guy we've all come to hate, Dr. Whitney, to be a su ...more

Too much domination and oppression.

I understand that the author's intent is to use the cat genes to explain Wyatt's need to dominate. I feel that this book goes too far at making his domination and jealousy "sexy." Women are often seduced into relationships when it starts out as extremely sexy. Later this behavior loses its attractiveness and the reality is controlling and psychological abuse. I am a voracious reader and enjoy a sexy male but I think we should be more responsible giving women help

I confess that I haven't finished the book yet but I don't see this getting any better.

I have always enjoyed the Ghostwalker series and when I found out this was about Gator's brother Wyatt I was super excited.

In fact I've liked almost all of the books Christine Feenhan's written so far - that's across all series.

But this one is such a dissappointment and I feel bad writing this but there's no way for me to like this storyline.

Christine Feehan does it again! She is 11 books into the series now and still going strong! When a series gets this long you start to wonder how the next book can top some of the previous ones but time and time again she does. Viper Game is likely one of my top 3 favorites from this series. I loved almost everything about this book. Wyatt's cajun charm, Pepper's strength, and the little vipers oh my. This one kept me turning all 448 pages at record speed and the steaminess level

The male character crossed the line from strong male to sleeping with the enemy. It completely ruined the book. Not only was he massively verbally abusive but he was abusive in front of the children. I hope the author does not continue with this type of character or I will no longer read her books. I have read this complete series as well as the complete carpathian series so I am quite familiar with her writing.

I am going to start this review right off, I really liked this book.. I start it that way because Christine Feehan can be hit or miss.. All of her books are good so maybe hit or miss isn't the correct term but each book she writes, she works really hard to write the right "feel" for the character and sometimes I am not crazy about that.. but that's ok, she doesn't have to write "the best book ever" every book. That being said..<

As interesting as this plot is, this book just reassured me that I'm not a Feehan fan.
This book is a nope!

Sigh. Yet another Feehan book I can't finish. This time, it's because the bad guys are experimenting on infants. But it's not just in the background, it's a huge part of the plot, and it's too much for me. That's my hard line. I have a baby at home, and all I can do is keep imagining her in place of the baby that Pepper is protecting. It's too m

I read this and completely forgot to post my view. This one is a fun read. I zipped right through it. I like this series even if it seems to never move forward. This one, the "alternative" medicine theme was nice. I liked the red headed Pepper and how she wanted to save the 3 babies. The 3 babies are adorable and the plot device used for them was easily predicted. For those who enjoy this series, it's a fun read. Enjoyable and a decent length.

When I first started out with this one I was excited to be back in the Bayou and having Nonnie around. However as things unfolded I wondered what happened with Wyatt he was so different. I know the difference was explained due to being enhanced, but Wyatt's personality was so different and I hated how cruel he was with Pepper at times. His jealously was so over the top so many times, what often made it worse was that he didn't apologize until one of the other guys or Nonnie pointed it out to him ...more
