REVIEW: Murder Game by Christine Feehan

Hunting teams competing with each other for points earned by murder, rape and bloodshed, Murder Game is an interesting book indeed.

Although this book is brilliant and fun, it’s not one of my favorites.  Looking forward to Kadan’s character, this book was somewhat of a disappointment.   Below you will see two quick notations on the origin and idea of GhostWalkers and their explosive union with their women.

The relationship is totally rockin awesome and I adore how Tansy shakes up his silent resolve.  Kadan has always been the cool, collected Ghostwalker.  It’s amazing what will change when your genetically altered mate lands your lap.

The wind shifted and carried her scent to him.  Kadan’s body tightened savagely in response.  His body knew her instantly.  She looked like some wild, pagan offering.  Untamed, seductive.  For him.  He went very still, his breath catching in his lungs.  Instant awareness shook him.  He’d certainly had his share of women, but he never reacted like this-a vicious, brutal response of his body and mind, everything in him reaching toward her.

“He did other things too.  He has a breeding program, matching the girls, who are now women, with men he experimented on in the military.  He created several GhostWalker teams.  I’m a member of one of those teams.  I agreed to be psychically enhanced.  At the time, we didn’t know he took those experiments even further without our consent.  He enhanced us genetically as well as paired us with the women from his earlier experiments.  Our best guess is that he hopes to create unique soldiers from the unions.”

Tansy must remain secluded to avoid contact with other people and objects that overwhelm her with their violent history.  Forced into agreement, she assists Kadan with locating the serial killing teams.  Using puzzle pieces left at the crime scenes, she must relive every crime in hopes of finding the teams and the puppet master.

This book has an intriguing story to it.  I like the idea.  It just didn’t do it for me.

I recommend this book to mature adults only.  I’m sure it will entertain anyone who is looking forward to a fantastic story.  If you have read any Christine Feehan books but have yet to read this series, begin with Shadow Game.  This series is outstanding and well worth the read!

REVIEW: Hidden Away – A KGI series novel #3 by Maya Banks

To say that I am extremely disappointed in this book would be an overstatement.  The other books in this series have not had better impressions so I suppose I was expecting to be bummed.

I do not much care for this series.  I do not like the books so far.  The only thing the KGI series has going for it is the characters…And the characters rock!

Hidden away is the KGI series story about Garrett and Sarah.

Garrett is sent on a mission that brings his agonizing nightmare of a past to life.  He is forced to protect a woman…the half sister of the traitorous man who changed Garrett’s life.  Sent on the “bullshit” mission, he’s forced to lounge on a beach, fish and drink beer all day.

Doesn’t sound too bad, right?  Well then you throw in the babbling and terrified woman he is to protect and I suppose things get a little interesting.

If she’d witnessed a murder, it wasn’t all that had happened.  Someone had hurt her or scared the hell out of her, and it enraged him.  Yeah, she was a job and he took each and every job seriously.  But the surge of protectiveness he felt whenever he looked at this scared, fragile woman went beyond that of a job.  And he was at a loss to explain it.

Sarah witnessed her brother murder a man she shared a past with.  Although she felt no remorse from the man’s death, she fears what will happen to her brother if the authorities realizes his involvement.  She’s on the run and of course bumps into Garrett on their little island of not so paradise.

She laughed.  She couldn’t help it.  Her shoulders shook and she looked down and laughed all over again.

“What the hell is so funny?” he demanded.  “Definitely not good for a man’s ego when a woman looks at his dick and laughs.”

I had to read 60% of this book for something interesting to happen.  60%.  Things became exciting for a few pages.  Enough said.  Total bummer.

I am only recommending this book to mature adults who are stuck reading this series because of the characters 😦  I adore Maya Banks but this series is just not for me.  Moderate violence and sexual content.
~Happy reading!
