It was all about the mission...and survival. Toxic Game is book 15 in Chrisitne Feehan outstanding series, Ghostwalkers.

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.

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

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

Review Copy Provided by the Publisher

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

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.

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.

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

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

This book has a different feel to it due to the subject matter and location. Draden Freeman finds himself infected with a toxic virus during a mission and is forced to be left behind in an Indonesian Jungle.

Shylah Cosmo is one of Whitney's "flowers" and she has been on her own mission to track down the rogue scientists responsible for the killer virus. She is just as tough and lethal as any GhostWalker and an asset as they fight off militia. But despite the fact they are both now expo

Dr. Dradan Freeman at 6’2’’ with his dark brown hair and piercing dark blue eyes looked like a model, not a soldier who was being dropped into a hot zone in Indonesia for one of the most dangerous assignments. However he is a Ghost Walker, and GhostWalkers are courageous, honorable and protectors. Dr. Dradan Freeman soon finds that he is the one in need of protection, and rescue.

I absolutely love a medical thriller or a virus outbreak or even a book with a plague story in it. But mash that up with a paranormal romance and I'm all in! Dr. Draden goes to the jungle with his Ghostwalker team to try to help wounded soldiers get out fast without getting infected by a crazy virus a terrorist faction had unleashed. Ghostwalker's were classified soldiers that had been enhanced physically as well as psychically. They almost made it out and then one of the terrorists gets a lucky ...more

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.

Shylah and Draden meet tracking a deadly hemorrhaging virus along the same lines as Ebola. While

It took longer than it normally would to finish, one of Christine Feehan’s title. Nonetheless, finished I did. Toxic Game wasn’t up to par with her other titles in this series, yet I still enjoyed the drama. GhostWalker, Draden Freeman, was on a rescue mission when he is infected with a deadly virus. He only had one choice, to force his fellow teammates, his brothers to leave him behind. But before he dies, he will make sure the ones who killed him will die hard and fast.

My feelings for Toxic Game are a bit of a mixed bag. Some parts of the storyline I loved, others not as much. Am I glad I read Toxic Game? - Yes, but it's not a favourite from the series.

The majority of the storyline occurs across a very small period of time in the same location. Draden and Shylah are isolated in the jungle due to being infected with a deadly virus, and after a while it started to feel quite repetitive. Deadly Virus, impending death, LOTS of feelings between them....
