The story line takes place in the Indonesian jungle and in Louisiana. This is a paranormal romantic suspense novel.

A long story with minimal excitement written for the faint of heart. 4 of 10 stars
4.75 stars.

I love this series ❤️
Usually, once it published I binge immediately.
But I kind of reluctant to start this one when I realised where this story location happened.
You see, many authors love to write bad stuff of places or people which they don’t familiar with, well Hollywood love that stuff too! 🤨

However, I can see Ms. Feehan worked very hard with her research department to give us as accurate as possible how to portray the locals life and what the part of this Island looks like. Especi

It was all about the mission...and survival. Toxic Game is book 15 in Christine Feehan outstanding series, Ghostwalkers. Dr. Draden Freeman and soldier/assassin Shylah/Peony Cosmos take center stage as the latest and top-notch GW pair. Draden is infected with an ebola-like, fatal virus while on a mission with his team to shut down a terrorist group in Indonesia. The terror group is brutal and used the fatal virus, concocted by three rogue scientists previously on Dr. Whitney's payroll, to wipe o ...more

Latest installment in the GhostWalker series — two GhostWalkers, Draden and Shylah, stuck in enemy territory and both of them infected with a lethal virus. How to get out of that impossible situation without succumbing to a horrible death?

The GhostWalkers are soldiers whose DNAs have been altered, making them stronger, faster—absolutely lethal. The mad scientist, Whitney, who made them that way (without their consent) is hell-bent on using them, supposedly for the good of the country and he sees
Dr. Draden Freeman is on a mission to stop a terrorist group when he is infected with a deadly weaponized virus. Knowing there is little chance of survival, Draden decides to take out the terrorist camp. While he is taking out the terrorist camp he gains the notice of someone else on a mission, Shylah (Peonies).

Shylah was sent to take out the doctors that are creating biological weapons when she discovers what has to be one of Whitney’s Ghostwalkers. She is drawn by him and his beauty as he slau

Fifteenth in the GhostWalker paranormal romantic suspense series and revolving around the Louisiana team of GhostWalkers. The couple focus is on Dr Draden Freeman and Shylah Cosmos struggling to survive in Sumatra, Indonesia.

This is how I dream a relationship should be - direct brutal honesty and humor. Save me from a romance where the drama comes from misunderstandings between the main characters. I always want to knock some sense into those characters. Draden and Shylah I want to be friends with and found myself laughing out loud at their story.

P.S. So much deep research made the virus storyline believable too.

When faced with your own mortality, even if you knew your life would bring it sooner than later, and the sooner happens when you meet the one who made life worth living…what would you do? Christine Feehan does an amazing job showing us how Draden Freeman and Shylah Cosmos deal with this.
This book from the first chapter had me by the heart and my emotions invested in the outcome. From heart-pounding to heart- stopping and every “heart” phrase you can think of this book covers it all. Nothing to

I have no clue how I missed on reading this book to be honest since for the most part, I have come to adore this series "Ghostwalkers" I have been following this series from the very beginning with Shadow Game so I adore the suspense/military plots that this author implements in her stories here. This series has really grown so much and I really enjoyed the "disease" element that is introduced in this book. It really h

Christine Feehan is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her recent books have been some of my favorites, but TOXIC GAME didn’t work for me. This is the 15th book in the GhostWalkers series, but the third book in what has been a mini series arc following one of the GhostWalker teams. GhostWalkers are men and women with enhanced genes to make them better, stronger, faster, smarter than regular people.

This new novel in the GhostWalkers series was high-octane danger and heart-melting romance! Once again this group of extraordinary men and women – smart, strong and incredibly gifted - banded together to protect their own…

Draden and Shylah met under the most intense, stressful, dangerous circumstances. How they handled themselves with such composure and grit is a testament to their harsh upbringing and life history. Instead of folding under the pressure of an uncertain future, they just kept do

I broke one of my book rules. I NEVER start a series in the middle. I have to start at the very beginning. Well, the synopsis of this book really intrigued me, and after much consideration, and a few night sweats, I started this series at book 15. Book 15! But in all honesty, the author did a great job not making the reader feel they’re missing bits and pieces of the series and past characters

This was Dr. Draden Freeman and Shylah Cosmos/Peony story. I enjoyed the story especially since the author toned down the sex a lot! So there was more attention on working together, finishing the mission and finding a cure to the deadly virus that the evil genius Dr Whitney’s cronies developed.

I’ve been disgusted with Peter Whitney for this entire series but it finally occurred to me that this man is incredibly astute. It’s crazy how advanced his plots are and how he is always thinking 3 steps a

Recommends it for: Everyone!
I wonderful addition to this fun series even after 14 previous novels! Christine Feehan is still able to provide a unique experience with the couples that we meet in the Ghostwalker series. Readers familiar with this series have met Draden in previous novels, as he's a member of the team settling in the Louisiana Bayou that we've been following for the past few novels, but Draden's background is not something that had been previously shared. We're in a similar boat with Shylah, the previous two ...more

Christine Feehan is one of my favorite authors and Toxic Game is one of the many reason's I read all of her series and haven't been disappointed.. This GhostWalkers installment is no exception. The author has done many hours of research on Ebola like viruses and it really shows in this book. I had to keep saying to myself, she wouldn't kill of these characters, would she??? I love the connection between Shylah and Draden. The way their romance blooms slowly is a beautiful love story. Both of the ...more

Romantic Read!

I enjoyed reading Draden, and Shylah's story, and hated for it to end. We had action, suspense, intrigue, new villains revealed, and updates on some of the other GW characters. Darden was a very romantic leading man, and Shylah's perfect for him. 

Draden, and Shylah's romance was beautiful considering the pressure they were under to find an antidote to save themselves, and others. This couple understood that life can be short, and bared their souls to each other. No game playing. A

Toxic Game by Christine Feehan is the 15th book in the GhostWalker series. I enjoyed this one. Draden and Shylah are two of Whitney's experiments who are fighting to stop a virus from taking killing people all over the world. Their love story was quick of course but still a slow burn love story in a way. Fast paced.

I like Feehan but she can be hit or miss for me. She makes some writing and love stories seem really unhealthy. This one was not the most dysfunctional and was fully consensual.

A chance meeting between people who were meant to be together. They must work together to find a lethal virus, the men who made it and the people behind a Toxic Game.

Dr. Draden Freeman and his scientifically enhanced GhostWalker team rescue a wounded military force attacked by Indonesian terrorists who have also released a deadly hemorrhagic virus, think Ebola, on a rural village killing everyone in a ghastly way. When about to be extracted, Draden is infected so he stays behind to keep from contaminating his team. Shylah Cosmos is a supersoldier like Draden, genetically altered by the same mad scientist, Dr. Whitney, who developed the GhostWalkers.

I began reading the Ghostwalker books when the series first began but drifted away and forgot about them until recently. So, I was delighted when offered the opportunity to review this book. It gave me a chance to see if the books were truly stand-alones while I caught up with the wonderful characters I remembered. It ended up being a mixed batch.

First, while this book could be considered a stand-alone, there are so many characters referenced that it is very obvious much of the story has taken p

WOW WHAT A RIDE!! Fans asked Christine Feehan for more action, more storytelling and less sex scenes and she gave us what we wanted. Toxic Game is a page turner, full of Romance and we do get some very hot,sexy, sex scenes toward the end. But the storyline is amazing and the world building and characters are so believable. A few times I was on the edge of my set.
