Wow. there is no other way to begin. Drama, love, action, confusion, surprise and out right passion. I had to force my self to put it down in order to sleep. Heather never seem to have some trick up that sleeve of hers and this book is no different. I loved it and will reread a number of times I'm sure. Great job Heather. Its a book you can not afford not to read. Happy Reading Maryanne

OGM? What a page turner this book is. I literally had to reread some scenes! The anticipation is to die for. The game is twisted and the stakes are high. Heather does a great job. The plots are twisted. The character are wonderful and darkly dangerous. The romance is drooling. And in every way possible... i absolutely loved this book. Really great read and i highly recommend. Heather never disappoints. (Review by Amanda Sue)

I loved this book. The story was exciting, fast paced and suspenseful. Right from the beginning of the book I was sucked into the world that the author created. I felt like I was running right alongside of Victoria as well as chasing with Victor. I lost several hours of sleep while reading this book. I just had to keep going to see what happened next with the characters. I recommend this book to anyone that is ready for an adventure.

Now, how to review a book without giving anything away? This is a must read! Done... LOL Guess I have to give you more than that, huh? Well, I really didn't know what this story was about when I started reading it, and I'm so glad I went in to it with no preconceived ideas, because that made it all that much better. The story takes us through a journey of discovery, with some results I never expected. The main characters Victor and Victoria are well defined and their journey is believable in the context of the story. I fell in love with these characters.

I'll admit that the beginning of the book threw me off a bit. Despite my misgivings I continued to read until I happened to glance at the clock and saw that it was well past midnight and only 5 hours until I had to get up for work! The story is complex, at times both sad and sweet and the characters and their abilities are fascinating. Well done HKW, well done.

Another great story from this gifted author! Killough-Walden, probably best known for her Big Bad Wolf and Kings series, gives us a surprising, fun, sexy, and fabulous story with action from start to finish in A Sinister Game. According to the author is the a reworked version of one of her early books and it holds its own with her more current work. Killough-Walden is imaginative and has an off-the-charts ability to keep an elaborate story uncomplicated for the reader.

Knocked it out of the park again, Ms. Walden. The characters are well developed and complex. From the first sentence to the last the reader is enloped in a torrid mix of emotion and mystery. The underlying love story is HOT! GREAT JOB HEATHER

Fantastic book. I would love to see more in this world. Alas, there are always the Wolves, the Angels, the Kings, the Demons, the Pirates and so much more. Different worlds. Different good guys. Different bad guys. BTW- Did I mention the Pirates..

Okay, I'm a little delayed leaving this review, mostly because I've been working 3 jobs and have barely had time to sleep... but you do what you gotta do. :) But despite that, A Sinister Game had me hooked from the get go. The story was unlike anything I have ever read, and I got really thrown for a loop at some of the twists and turns. With paranormal abilities that are endless, Victor has finally met his match in Victoria. Unbeknownst to everyone around her, Victoria's powers are growing as well. Victor has decided that he must have Victoria, both for personal and other reasons. So he makes a proposition, play The Game. If she wins, he steps down from his leadership role. If she loses, she must spend a night with him. So in reality, she wins either way. :) This story captures all of the emotions, from humor, to sadness, to anger, to joy. Books like this one, that actually make you feel something don't come along all of the time, so read this & enjoy the ride!

HKW's ASG keeps readers on the edge of their seats with the twists and turns in this book. The characters are well written. I love the character of Victoria Red. The overall feel of the book comes to a perfect conclusion. At the beginning of the book it is mysterious by not devolging the background to the story. The twist are unique and captivating. Leaving the readers wanting more. Another wonderfully written novel Heather.

I have a hard time finding books that are written so well that they can take me from my crazy world and into a place where I can have a real adventure. Heather Killough-Walden had never failed me in this aspect. When I pick up one of her books I know I’m in for a great adventure. “A Sinister Game” is no different. The book will suck you in and keep you guessing to the very end. I love this book and any other book by Heather. They don’t disappoint.

I absolutely loved this book. I was given a copy for an honest review. The story was unique, and a great change from the usual for HKW. I love the details she puts into her books. Reading along, you get a full vision of her new world and it's exciting! The twists and turns keep you always wanting more. It took me longer to read because of things in my life, but it was something I truly did not want to put down. The love story and mythology was a great plus for sure! Great job! Definitely a recommended book!!!

This was a lot different than Heather's usual story line but, as with everything she writes, I loved it!!! The way she put two entirely different worlds together was ideal. The Si-fi part of the book was a pleasant surprise from Heather. Of course now I want more of these characters:-)

Another great book by Heather. This book leaves you hooked from the first by, not only the relationship of the main charactors, but the world in which they live. Heather has a knack for pulling readers in from the begining while still creating the world and backround that goes with them in detail. I love the fact that i can just dive right into the story without the slow build up. If you have not read her books yet, give her a try. I read a lot of books and I tell you, its worth it. If you have already read some of her works, than you already know what I'm talking about:) Happy reading!

This book is another amazing read by Heather Killough-Walden. I love all of her books. A Sinister Game is different than any of the other books she has written, and it is fantastic. This book is wonderfully written, with vivid descriptions that suck you into the book. It is fast paced, action packed, and had some twists and turns that I never saw coming. It kept me up past my bedtime just so I could see what happened next. I had a really hard time putting the book down. Thank you for another great read, HKW!!!
