Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to the world of the GhostWalkers in this powerful paranormal action/thriller involving psychic powers, crackling sexual tension, a fight against evil, and the redemptive force of love. This time out, GhostWalker Raoul "Gator" Fontenot is deputized by Dr. Lily Whitney-Miller to go to New Orleans and bring back Iris "Flame" Johnson, another orphan that Lily's "father" genetically engineered. That experiment left Flame with secret powers (she can use sound as a weapon) but also left her with a cancer that is sure to return. Once Gator finds Flame, they work together to locate another missing young woman; in the process, they uncover evidence that Dr. Whitney may not be dead after all, a development with great significance for future books. As in Mind Game and Shadow Game, Feehan's appealing lead characters are at once strong and surprisingly vulnerable. The relationship between Flame and Gator ranges from scorching sex scenes and issues of trust to a tender moment of love as Flame is recovering from chemo. Gator's family, especially his grandmother, adds another dimension of recovery for Flame. Ginger Curwen
Eternal Night
Feehan continues to amaze readers.
Publishers Weekly
At the start of bestseller Feehan's suspenseful third GhostWalker novel (after Mind Game), Raoul "Gator" Fontenot, a member of the Special Forces paranormal squad known as the GhostWalkers, is looking for Iris "Flame" Johnson, who, like Gator, was a subject of genetic engineering by the late Dr. Peter Whitney. Though Whitney's treatment left Flame with superior physical strength and hearing, he also used her as a guinea pig, deliberately giving her cancer in order to further his research for a cure. After Gator finds Flame in the steamy bayou country outside New Orleans, the pair team up to search for another young woman who has mysteriously disappeared, as clever assailants dog their every step. Though Flame and Gator are endowed with superhuman skills, this captivating story's paranormal aspects never overshadow the sexual tension between them. Agent, Steve Axelrod at Rowland & Axelrod.

Meet the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

Read an Excerpt

He knew where in the shadows to look for a GhostWalker, but even with that knowledge, it took several long minutes of trying to pierce the darkness to spot her. She moved with stealth, flitting from shadow to shadow, bush to tree, avoiding the spill of light pouring from the overhead lamps. She stayed small, arms and hands in close to the body, clothes tight to avoid the whisper of sound. She wore a skullcap to keep any hair from being left behind at the scene. She knew what she was doing as she surveyed the tall wall surrounding the estate. As she moved along the base of the north-facing wall, a dog roared a challenge. She froze, turning her head toward the sound. Abruptly the barking turned to a soft, eager whine. Raoul smiled. Definitely a GhostWalker. He stayed back, careful not to stare at her, not wanting her instincts to detect his presence. He found himself utterly fascinated by her. The woman stared up at the wall, glanced left and right and moved back a few feet. To be safe he sank low, his movements slow so he wouldn't draw her gaze. His breath exploded out of his lungs as she leapt over the wall. There was no doubt left in his mind. She had to be a GhostWalker. Dr. Whitney had used genetic enhancement on her. It was impossible to clear the height of the wall with a straight-up jump. His physical capabilities were enhanced and he hadn't been positive he could take the wall, yet she had gone over it with ease. Gator hurried across the street and waited in the darkness, "feeling" with his mind. She was leery, probably sensing him, but unable to determine just what was tripping her alarms. He waited patiently, frozen in place. He was highly trained, and there were times he'd been locked into position for hours waiting for a target. He could outwait her if necessary. Whatever she was up to had to be time sensitive. The longer she was inside the estate walls, the more danger she was in. Hit, scatter, and run. Even as a child it would have been drilled into her.The moment he sensed she was on the move, he cleared the fence in the exact same spot she had. He hadn't cased the place so it was the only safe spot to go over when he was landing blind on the other side. He landed in a crouch, just in the shadows of the hedges on the other side, automatically calming the guard dog with his mind. He took a cautious look around. The rolling lawns were well manicured, and flowers and plants were grouped in a small area complete with fountains and statues, giving the appearance of a small private park. The house was enormous, two stories with numerous balconies and lots of brick and fancy, scrolled wrought iron. The house even boasted a jutting tower. "Flame, what are you up to?" He whispered the words to himself, thinking of her as Flame rather than Iris. It didn't look like a rendezvous with a wealthy businessman. He ignored the out of character possessive feeling that churned in his gut as his gaze pierced the night to find her. He caught a glimpse of her near the thick vines growing up the side of the house. She moved with stealth, knees bent, carefully placing each foot as she skirted the huge windows. She turned her head suddenly and looked right at him.

    Mind Game - Christine Feehan

    This is a part of the GhostWalker series she has written. They are full of intrigue, espionage and very romantically involved scenes. It is different and very enjoyable to read, keeps me on the edge of my seat. Would highly recommend the reading of this book and the other ghostwalker series.

    Christine Feehan is on her A-game with her latest paranormal thriller

    Both genetically enhanced, Iris 'Flame' Johnson and Gator Fontemont met when he rescued her. They are attracted to one another, but Gator has always been a lone ranger so he struggles with his need to be with her and Flame trusts no one. However, he learns she remains in danger from Dr. Peter Whitney, whom Gator thought dead (see SHADOW GAME) he willingly risks his life to keep her safe................ Realizing he is enhanced like her, Flame fears Gator plans to return her to the evil Whitney. She detests the fact that she cannot get him out of her mind as she feels an irresistible attraction to him that she assumes is just one more inbreeding mechanism devised by Whitney. She distrusts her growing love for Gator as much as she expects him to betray her. Together they might defeat their common enemy, but separately they will probably die or worse be re-imprisoned by Whitney that is if he is the cat chasing them............... The latest Ghostwalker Game thriller is a terrific paranormal entry because of the personalities of two loners, both ready to explode (especially the heroine) and neither easily trusting others particularly those who Whitney experimented on. The story line is action-packed never slowing down, but also has the haunting of Katrina as pre-hurricane New Orleans serves as the backdrop. Christine Feehan is on her A-game with her latest paranormal thriller........... Harriet Klausner

    This HAS to be my favorite Ghost Walker Series Book !!!!

    I really loved this book. I have read it at least 3 times already (and haven't done that with any of the others except a few carpathian books). Ms Feehan really brings the bayou and its people to life in this book. You can get a real sense of the laid back feeling as well as the sense of family that permeates the area. It is a great story line with the steamy parts that you expect in a book of this type. I happen to love the action and Ms Feehan keeps it going non-stop. She doesn't even repeat things as other authors have want to do.

    The back and forth play between Flame and Gator really make the book. Their abilities mesh together just right and makes this a book that is hard to put down.


    I hope Ms Feehan keeps the Ghost Walker series coming as I am waiting to see books on a few of the Team that Gator is connected to.

    LOVE THIS BOOK !!!!!!!!

    I was looking for a new author and came across this book. I now own all of her books and this is still my favorite one. Gator is sexy, funny, loving and dangerous all at the same time. This book is one of my favorite. I have read it over and over again and it still gets to me.

    Knives of Passion

    Not as good as Mind Game or Shadow Game but, not bad. I did like the passion of her writting, although, there did seemed to be something missing with this one.

    Terrific Read!

    Heroine and hero well thought out and placed within the previous 'game' books. Gaitor and Flame were good character matches for the series, and I look forward to reading the rest in the series. Thanks!

    I scored it low because. . .

    1st let me start of by saying that I own every single CF book. Out of all her books this is the one I liked the least--so much so that I have not finished it and I've had it for almost a year. My issue w/ this particular entry in the Game Series is the heroine's inability to forgive Lily (Shadow Game). I mean come on both characters suffered. . .but she's o.k. w/ Dahlia (Mind Game). CF writes well and I know that I will complete this book. Just not right now. . .
