Christine Feehan is my favorite author but she really let me down through this book. I didn't even finish the book. I felt that Christine kept repeating the same sentences over and over throughout most of the book. I was getting really bored with the narrative (which never happens). The book seemed to be focused more on computer technology instead of being an actual romance and where was the action/fight scenes??? Overall I just felt that the storyline had nothing to with the other books of the ghostwalker series. It didn't even seem like Christine's writing.

This book was a HUGE letdown. I could not get attached to ANY of the characters. I am an enormous Feehan fan, reading anything and everything that I can find of hers. If this is this wave of the future (and lately, let's face it, there have been hints of the Laurel K. Hamilton type degeneration of style happening) I will simply reread old favorites and hope to encounter another author who will focus more on the story line rather than the "edgy" sex scenes.

Okay, I love Christine Feehan and I was a bit disappointed with her last book from her drake sisters series, but this book was just bad. It was too long, everyone was repeating themselves and I honestly didn't like the leading lady. She was to whiny! Also, I was looking forward to reading about a character that I already had read previously about. These people are just coming way out of left field and being dropped into an already existing series. I know she has done this in the past with her other books, but the story was so long that it didn't mesh well for me.

Good, but not as exciting as others in the Ghostwalker Series. This group does not have the closeness the other group has.

I never finished this book. It went around in circles, and had absolutely no plot. Very disappointed as I am a huge fan of this author.

This was the first book by Christine Feehan I just couldn't bring myself to finish. I've been falling more and more out of love with her books, and the GhostWalker series had been my favorite. I am hoping that the next one in the series will be less "me Tarzan, you Jane" in tone. Of course a big, strong, alpha male is pretty much a necessity in a romance novel, but all I saw in Mack was a jerk who, to me at least, was borderline abusive to Jaimie. I much prefer a female lead that gives as good as she gets, but too often in this book Jaimie just backs down and lets him get away with behavior that no man should be able to get away with, I don't care how good he is in bed. Perhaps we are meant to think they have a dom/sub type relationship, in which case it might make more sense for her to act this way, but their relationship is never described as such, and so, to me, she just seemed like a little girl who needed the big, powerful man to tell her how to live her life. If you enjoy relationships of this type, this book, along with the majority of Christine Feehan's works, will be perfect for you. I think that I have read too many other authors that have written their women to be much stronger and my tastes are adapting as I can't rightly get lost in the story if I'm constantly wanting to scream at the character "Tell him to eff off!". One of the joys of fiction is that there is, literally, something out there for everyone.

Disappointing!! I have read the entire series and I started out loving them. Not so much now. As others have said, this book came out of left field, with very little tie in to previous books in the series. The book was boring, with much of the mental dialogue highly repetitive. I didn't care for the weak willed heroine (who kept insisting she wasn't going to put up with the hero's treatment only to continue allowing him to treat her like dirt) or the jerk hero. The book made several mentions about the men getting "more aggressive", but it seems like an excuse to take the alpha male stereotype to nearly barbaric levels. Has anyone else noticed that the books are becoming cookie cutter in the descriptions and attitudes of all the heros/heroines? The only reason this isn't getting a 1 star is that some of the support characters were very good and I'd love to read more about them.

I thought it was just me, getting tired of the series, but sfter reading other reviews, I know I wasn't the only one who felt let down. After reading the Carpathian Series, and Jaguar series, I sm definitely getting jaded. Some of the language and the personality of the male and female, are getting interchangeable. If you've read one you pretty much know how the story goes. Man strong, damaged conflicted, woman damaged needs rescuing. Too stupid to realize, snd too ignorant to be safe, snd not only endanger her life, but others as well. Its not like, there aren't bad guys and danger out there! This book does not live up to the promise of earlier works.

I love the Ghostwalker series but Street Game moved so much slower than the rest of the series. It was a much too slow for my liking. This great series is usually action packed but the action didn't begin until I was almost through the book. The characters were strong and humorous but didn't interact as much as you would expect. There was very little in the way of field missions, which is what the series is ultimately about. When I got to the end, I wasn't certain if this was the beginning of the end of the series. I would recommend this to readers following the series but not as a single read. Regardless of my disappointment, I'm anxiously awaiting the next in the series!

Ever since discovering Feehan's vampire series, I've been a big fan. I devoured them, went through the Drake sisters and was thrilled with the Ghostwalker series. Felt it had EVERYTHING - romance, kick-ass action, great visuals, mystery... While it was really neat to see more Ghostwalkers and learn that everyone's not what they seem at first, I'm finding her sex scenes becoming more and more brutal. With the Vampires, I could relate it back to the animal-side. Same with the jaguar series (one which I've read but am not a big fan of for just that reason). Maybe this story just wasn't a good one to open with for the new set of Ghostwalkers. I really like the new characters and can't wait to read about their stories, but it was really hard empathizing with Mack.

I'm a big fan. Love Feehan books. However, this one not so much. Ever buy a book not realizing that it is part of a series and half the book is referring to past events in the other books? Well, I've read all the books in this series and I had that disappointing feeling. They kept referring to their past so much that it felt like I had dropped into the middle of the story. Have to say, though, that this is the only Feehan book that has disappointed. Love her books.

I have read all of the books in this series and usually by the time I am done I'm in love with the male lead and hate for the story to end. Not so this time! I barely managed to finish the whole thing. No plot and no chemistry led to no interest. I hope the next one in the series is better or I will be moving on.

Soon to become good friends. Follow along as these alpha men take on the danger surrounding their woman and willing to place themselves between them and danger.

My Lord I don't think I've ever read a book so drawn out that it is literally putting me asleep. It took 62 pages to cover hardly anything. I was getting bored off my bird. This series of books started off so good but now she just keeps throwing all new characters at you each book, none of the original guys anymore and they are all drawn out beyond belief. The characters in this book are boring as can be and the 62 pages I did manage to struggle through were a long drawn reunion of 2 people with just enough character and depth to keep my snoring to a minimum. I guess its time to find another series. 1 star because it is mandatory to leave at least one. I should of quit while I was ahead.
