Review: Murder Games

Title: Murder Games

Author: Christine Feehan

Published: January 2009

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Stand Alone/Series: Ghostwalker #7

From the Author Site: 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 violent challenge 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 at all what it seems.

Hero: Kadan Montague is shielder with lots of other interesting physic and physically modification. He's known for as unemotional and as a man who will stop at nothing to get the job done, doing whatever it takes. When he finds Tansy, all his emotions go crazy and he has to try to balance all this new emotion, protect Tansy from everything (even herself) and still get the job done.

Heroine: Tansy Meadows is a very strong physometricist as well as a empath of enormous strength. She has found peace with her skills by becoming a wildlife photographer of great skill. She's happy with her life and all is well, until this mountain of a man finds her and demands her help. After getting a "taste" of the latest puzzle piece in the Murder Game, she has to complete the puzzle in order to find peace again.

Review: All of Christine's heroes of late seem to be all the same. Cool, calm and collected where everyone is concerned except their heroines. Then the turn into dominating towers of sculpted muscle. I expect them to start carrying clubs, grunt a lot and start dragging their women along by the hair!

The book was okay. Wasn't a page turner and it was not DNF either. At times it was enjoyable, but I mostly read it because I couldn't help myself. A series junkie that I am. *sigh* Maybe I need help but I guess there are worse thing to be addicted to, and I know if thing continue on this downward trend Christine will fall off the "must buy" list to the "if I in the used books store" list before making the "do not buy" list.

Keeper?: Yes because it part of the series.

Recommendation: Yes, If you've read the other Ghostwalkers you will enjoy it. As as stand alone, it's okay.

Rating: 3
