‘GhostWalkers’ series Book #7
Return to the world of the GhostWalkers with ‘the queen of paranormal romance” (USA Today) as she raises the stakes in the ultimate game of love and death…
Games should be fun, but for two expert teams across the country, they’re murder – because the winning team is the one that gets the most kills. The participants in this violet challenge are rumored to be GhostWalkers. And Kadan Montague isn’t happy about it.
Kadan is a GhostWalker and he’s determined to clear the GhostWalker name of the rumors. To do it, he’s going to need the help of psychic Tansy Meadows. But as soon as he sees her, he knows his mission will be more complicated than he imagined – and the “murder game” may not be all what it seems.
Review: Who do you think wins this game?
Murders are happening along the coasts, and Kadan has been ordered to find out who, why, and stop them. He’s also ordered to keep it under wraps – no one on his team is allowed to know what’s going on. For the murders are suspicious – whoever is doing it, is getting in and out in a flash, no witnesses, no evidence, nothing. They’re being made to look like it’s the GhostWalkers. Someone high up has always wanted them gone. Now they’re being threatened – a force wants them wiped out, and Kadan refuses to go down without a fight.
There’s only one person he can ask for help, and he needs to find her quick. One of many of Lily’s “sisters”, Tansy is one of enhanced girls. As a child, she’d helped the police and the FBI catch murderers with her enhanced gifts. There’s only one draw-back – the voices of the victims, of the murderers, stay in her head. Whitney had taken away her defenses and she can’t block them. After the last episode, she’d spent a long time in a hospital until she believed her mental stability would allow her to function.
Now, up in the Sierras, she’s working her freelance job, getting pictures for National Geographic. And that’s where Kadan finds her. But when he sees her, his body reacts, instantly. He knows that the enhancing Whitney did included being paired with Tansy, but what he feels is deeper; quickly, to him, Tansy is home. She sees a side of him that not even his closest friends, the other GhostWalkers, have seen.
Together, in their struggle, they track down the murderers and who is running the game. Only, he’s a ‘hunter’, and a ‘dreamwalker’, exactly like Tansy. Stopping him just got a lot more complicated.
And I so loved this book! I don’t think there is one GhostWalker novel that’s left me disappointed. I waited long enough for Kadan’s story. Kadan, who always seemed so cold, distant, ice in his veins.
I can tell you, he met his match with Tansy. She’s a strong woman, determined, like a bulldog who won’t let go once she sinks her teeth into something, no matter the cost to her. Unless it’s sex, she’s not pushover. She stands up to Kadan, like he’s never seen anyone do, and he loves her all the more for it.
I think, though, that I’d like to see the next woman be able to stand up a little stronger, to be able to push back when it comes to the sex. They constantly melt and agree to anything – I’d like to see the tables turned, and for at least one of the woman to be able to resist it.
What I really liked, the best parts, where when I busted a gut laughing at something the characters did or said. Kadan, the man with ice in his veins, was being teased, and I laughed my a** off. When that recording started playing in the car, I burst out laughing even as Tansy did. Listening to the banter between the men… all the while they’re taking out the bad guys, which is supposed to be serious, and the banter between them had me laughing so hard, I had tears! That, IMO, was THE best parts of the book.
Perfect story, plot, characters, ending… the action was superb, the sex scenes tender as much as they are intense,the twists… OMG, the twists! You find out who’s involved in what and it’s actually a shock!
Excellent! And I can’t wait for the next!
