Shadow Game by Christine Feehan: Paranormal Adventure

Updated on August 15, 2014

Shadow Game, the first of her GhostWalker Series

"The classified experiment is the brainchild of renowned scientist Peter Whitney and his brilliant daughter, Lily. Created to enhance the psychic abilities of an elite squadron, it can transform their natural mental powers into a unique military weapon. But something goes wrong. In the isolated underground labs, the men have been dying-victims of bizarre accidents. Captain Ryland Miller knows he is next. When Dr. Whitney himself is murdered, Ryland has only one person left to trust: the beautiful Lily. Possessed of an uncanny sixth sense herself, Lily shares Ryland's every new fear, every betrayal, every growing suspicion, and every passionate beat of the heart. Together, they will be drawn deeper into the labyrinth of her father's past and closer to a secret that someone would kill to keep hidden."

Who are the GhostWalkers?

The GhostWalker Creed

We are the GhostWalkers, we live in the shadows

The sea, the earth, and the air are our domain

No fallen comrade will be left behind

We are loyalty and honor bound

We are invisible to our enemies

and we destroy them where we find them

We believe in justice and we protect our country

and those unable to protect themselves

What goes unseen, unheard and unknown are

GhostWalkers

There is honor in the shadows and it is us

We move in complete silence whether

in jungle or desert

We walk among our enemy unseen and unheard

Striking without sound and scatter to the winds

before they have knowledge of our existence

We gather information and wait with endless patience

for that perfect moment to deliver swift justice

We are both merciful and merciles

We are relentless and implacable in our resolve

We are the GhostWalkers and the night is ours.

About the Ghost Walker Series

by Christine Feehan

Christine Feeham says,

"Welcome to the home of my Ghostwalkers. I have always wanted to do an action/thriller series grounded in science with heavy paranormal elements. This series has strong heroines and wonderful heroes who must work together as equal partners, both bringing their strengths and abilities together in order to survive. Check out the teasers for a virtual preview of the stories or read the first chapters! I hope you enjoy!"

About the Author

Christine Feehan

"I've been a writer all of my life -- it is who I am. I write for myself and always have. The ability to create pictures and emotions with words is such a miracle to me. I read everything; I mean everything! All kinds of books, even encyclopedias. I am fascinated by the written word and I love storytellers. It is a great privilege to be counted one myself."

~AUTHORS NOTES~

I write every day and have done so since I was old enough to pick up a pen. (I spent a lot of time getting in trouble at school for writing instead of doing the things I was supposed to do.) Once I create my characters, I try very hard to have them react to situations as they really would. Sometimes I have preconceived ideas of what I would like them to do, but they don't mind me, because it would be out of character for them. They take on a life of their own. Sometimes when I throw difficult situations at them in the hopes I'll get a certain reaction and they don't do what I want, I complain bitterly to my husband and he laughs at me. Still, it is important to me to have them be real, not perfect people, so they make mistakes we lesser mortals might make.

My opinion about Christine Feehan

Shadow Game

Shadow Game is a fantasy, come supernatural, come thriller, romance. The author classifies it as a supernatural thriller and it does have strong elements of these. However, its greatest appeal is as a romance, a very sexy romance.

This is Book One of the GhostWalker Series which tells the story of physically and psychically enhanced men and women and how they are linked together, each book covers one romance. The men have been drawn from special forces and law enforcement because they have shown some form of psychic ability. Their abilities have been enhanced by scientist Peter Whitney. The women, were taken as children by Dr Whitney and their abilities enhanced.

Shadow Game is written from the point of view of the two main characters, Lily Whitney, adopted daughter of Dr Whitney, and Ryland Miller, the captain of the first ghostwalker team. It is written in an informal manner with plenty of humour, thrills and plots that keep you turning the pages. There is also plenty of sexy romance here.
