It took me eight days to finish this book. Not because it was boring. Not because it was difficult to read. There was absolutely nothing wrong with this book. It's just that I wanted to savor this story for as long as possible. The hero that Christine Feehan created in Malichai was a man who was perfect in his every imperfection. Sold by his mom for drugs, he grew up on the streets with his brothers, learning to survive and ended up becoming the most compassionate, patient, understanding per ...more

Lethal Game is the newest book in Christine Feehan’s GhostWalker series. And, I can tell you, I enjoyed every second of Malichai’s and Amaryllis’s story.

Lethal Game is the latest outstanding continuation of Christine Feehan’s action-packed Ghostwalker series. This novel delivers even more action and adventure with main characters Malichai Fortune and his wonderful heroine, the mysterious Amaryllis, as the lead couple.

Malichai’s team is a branch of highly specialized and enhanced men and women who go in and rescue soldiers injured or captured behind enemy lines. Malichai is badly injured in a recent rescue mission and he is ordered to take a vac

The sixteenth installment of the Ghostwalkers series, Lethal Game was full of enhanced super soldiers, political plots, family, and love. Some would say I have no business jumping into a series at #16, and they could be right, but when I read the synopsis I was intrigued and wanted to give the story a chance. The author does a great job of informing any new rea

Hummm, haven't started this yet. I have a feeling that it will be much like the last 5 or 6 books. More of the same with the "good" Dr. still on the lamb. I love how on another big series the bad guys changed out every three or four books.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Christine Feehan is usually one of my go-to authors that I truly enjoy reading. Unfortunately, this installment of the Ghostwalker series did not draw me in. I really thought that I would enjoy Malichai’s story but honestly had a hard time throughout the book.

I was confused with the number of characters and the part that played throughout the story. They all kind of ran together to the point where I had a hard time keeping track of who was who and what they would mean to the overall story.

I liked the second half of this a lot more then the first. It was very inst-love in the first half, but then the couple really goes through some hard stuff together and it solidified their relationship more for me. Really loved that we got to see lots of characters from previous books and catch up with their lives a little bit. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Ms Feehan has long ago proved herself a master of romance and paranormal to me, but I think I need to add suspense to the list. Lethal Game, definitely, has an edge of your seat energy woven through it. There’s a sense of 'waiting for the other shoe to drop' even as you’re immersed in fun witty banter and the building of trust and love between the main characters. A brilliant building of discovery and surprises beyond the obvious. This story grabs your heart in chapter one and has you engaged in ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
LETHAL GAME by Christine Feehan is book 16 in the Ghost Walkers Series. This is the story of Malichai and Amaryllis. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book. I will say this author's writing allows for that with her writing but I did feel I would have love to have read the previous character's story line since some where in this book. Malichai has been forced to take a vacation to heal physically and mentally after very bad assignment the Ghost Walkers were on. ...more

Malachai's story! If you've read the series then you've been waiting for this, plus you'll see some of your favorite past couples.

Some might feel like there are too many twists and conspiracy theories but focus on the love story - you will want to hug it to yourself as you wipe away a stray tear.

Lethal Game continues the Ghostwalkers series and I am really loving it! Malichai is an enhanced super soldier who was recently injured on a mission. To his dismay, he must now take a "vacation". While at a cute bed and breakfast in California, he meets Amaryllis, a worker at the B and B who is most certainly hiding something. Challenge accepted!

Malichai is a badass super soldier for sure, but seeing him in a noncombat setting, doing domestic things like fixing a dishwasher really made him

Lethal Game is Book 16 in the GhostWalker series. Christine Feehan wrote a storyline that grabbed my attention and would not let go. I love this couple. Both Malichai and Amaryllis are strong characters and hold their own throughout the book. Those of us that have been reading Christine Feehan books for the last twenty years know that the story line is character driven. Lethal Game is no except

My favorite author and series delivered again ❣️ All I loved and expected about the GhostWalkers were exquisitely displayed in amazing details. The HEA couple, Malichai and Amaryllis, were, literally, created only for each other. The slow beginning when they learned about and got to know each other was gorgeously paced.

The way everything I loved kept happening throughout made me feel like the author could read my mind and detect my wishes. Then wrote them all out, just for me! Oh, yeah, I was t

An emotional rollercoaster ride with this unique "band of brothers!"

LETHAL GAME is an emotional roller coaster ride! You'll smile, laugh and feel your heart break for this unique "band of brothers." We have a wonderful story of romance, suspense, murder, intrigue, and add in a potential Terrorist attack on the Ideas For Peace Conference held at the San Diego Convention Center. What group is behind the attack? Is this a new enemy of the Ghostwalkers? Who can they trust in the government? The plot

While I still enjoy this series, this book is the exact same formula. A ghostwalker comes in contact with a woman whom he seems to find irresistible, and lo and behold, she happens to be one of Dr. Whitney's enhanced females whom he wanted to bred with his ghostwalkers. I am amazed that Doctor Whitney has now figured out how to splice more animals like elephant DNA and other weird insects as if spider DNA wasn't enough. Malaichai and Amaryllis were interesting just like the other couples, the ge ...more

Another emotional and suspenseful read…

It took me a while to warm up to this series and I constantly have to wonder why that was because each read now is one I savor. The stories have all the elements I look for and have come to expect from this author – heart-pinging emotion, stomach-jumping tension and always family and love… And the opening chapter of this read? Yeah, turn the lights up high and cuddle up as it was unsettling as it was intense (and oh so good)!

LETHAL GAME is the sixteenth instalment in Christine Feehan’s contemporary, adult GHOSTWALKERS erotic, paranormal romantic suspense series focusing on an elite group (4 teams) of enhanced men and women known as the Ghostwalkers (GW). These ‘super soldiers’ were once part of an unauthorized government experiment performed by Dr. Peter Whitney but several soldiers have, since, opted into the program on their own. This is US Air Force pararescue medic Malachai Fortunes, and B&B employee Amaryllis’ ...more

When Malichai Fortunes suffers an injury, he is strongly encouraged to take a vacation to California to recoup. He does not relax well and finds himself getting friendly with the staff of the B&B he is staying at.

Amaryllis is beautiful, sweet, and seems to also have some special gifts. He is sure she is one of Whitney's experiments, but it is a delicate balance between outing himself or her. But as they spend time together it is obvious that they are drawn together. These books are almost alway

I’ve been a long time fan of author Christine Feehan, and this novel, the 16th in her marvelous Ghostwalker series, is no exception. She’s able to create such interesting characters and realistic locations in her books, this one was very difficult to put down. This is the tale of Malichai and Amaryllis, two souls who have a terrible past and such an amazing future. Malichai is a Ghostwalker, and he was brutally wounded on his latest mission. So it’s off to vacation for him, to rest and relax. Wh ...more

Malichai is sure of himself, "a slow smile curved his mouth and he lay back against the pillows. “I knew you’d fall for me, woman. It’s the way I wash dishes, isn’t it?” The man is quite territorial, " much as I love that top, he doesn’t get to see you looking like that. Only me. And I’m going to tell you up front that he’s a good-looking man and if you look like you’re going to trade up, I’m killing him.” I liked this book, I loved Malichai. ...more

Malichai was a multifaceted guy with a tough soldier attitude, but his innate sweetness and ease of adapting to domestic chores was quite cute! Amaryllis was very strong and intelligent, and I rather enjoyed her secretive nature. The way secrets were revealed went a ways in their relationship development, but weirdly, I skimmed a lot of the sex scenes out of boredom, being more in favor of the private conversations.

Lethal Game turned out to be a really good read! I was thrilled there wasn’t sup
