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.

I researched this book for more than two years. The heroine is a woman who is smart and clever and does what is necessary to do what she believes is right in spite of all odds against her. I love psychic connections and the interesting twists it can be used in a story line. This book provided me with great characters to work with. I can't wait for you to meet the men and women in this book.

One of the best current voices in the darker paranormal
romance subgenre, Feehan has begun another series that,
while lacking the fantasy feel of her Carpathian romances,
is equally intense, sensual, and mesmerizing and might appeal
especially to fans of futuristic romances. Known for her
vampire tales, Feehan (Dark
Symphony) is a rising star in paranormal romance; she
lives in northern California. Copyright 2003 Reed Business
Kicking off what looks like the beginning of a hot, new paranormal
series, Christine Feehan delivers action, adventure and passion.
Ryland and Lily’s story is intense and sexy, and the rest
of the GhostWalkers are just as interesting.

SHADOW GAME is a very fast paced action packed thriller/love story
all wrapped up into one. A bit different than what I’m used
to reading from Christine Feehan. However, if this is the
type of thriller/love story that she will be turning out going
forward, I vote that she continue with this line. I highly
recommend this book and will be adding it to my keeper’s shelf.
This book was very well written. I could feel the action and
pain the men suffered. I vote that "SHADOW GAME" become a
series of it’s own so that we can find out just what has happened
to all the other players in the story. Do they find the lost
girls? Will the other men continue as a unit or go their separate
ways? Christine Feehan I look forward to reading your next
book whether it’s a new saga of the "DARK SERIES or another
chapter to the SHADOW GAME.
over, Carpathians! The Ghost Walkers are in the building!
Christine Feehan has outdone herself this time. This is a
kick butt, Take names action packed read and you won't want
to put it down once you start it! I know I didn't…….. There
was not anything I didn't like about this book. The characters,
the plot, the scenery, it all dragged me in right from the
very first paragraph. It is my sincere hope that Christine
Feehan will see fit to write stories for the other Ghost Walkers.
I know I'll be the first in line for each and every one of
Christine Feehan’s first installment of the "Ghostwalker"
series, she grabs us from the first page with a gritty new
storyline. Murder, betrayal and greed form the building blocks
of this dynamic story. Lily and Ryland's fight against the
greed and total disregard of the santity of the Ghostwalkers
lives is complicated by their stark attraction to each other.
Dare they trust in their attraction to each other or is it
some genetically enhanced side effect of the experiments.
Ms Feehan tells an exquisitely elegant tale of love in the
midst of distrust and betrayal, teaching us yet again that
even in the darkest shadows there is hope and love waiting
for you. In her award-winning style, she has again, as with
her "Dark" series, made this reviewer marking her calendar
for the release of the next "Ghostwalker" story.
this reviewer can say is WOW!!! Ms. Feehan packs such a punch
with this story it will leave one gasping for breath. She
conquers yet another genre of romance with ease, proving why
she is a master. There is just enough of a touch of the “paranormal”
to remind the reader where she got her start. But that is
where the similarities between this story and the Dark saga
end. Unless one counts the passionate relationship between
hero and heroine that is so hot it will light the pages on
Ms. Feehan wields the suspense blade with ease, keeping readers
enthralled and teetering on the edge, from the very beginning.
The roller coaster of action rolls on, twisting and turning,
riding up and down breath-taking peaks and valleys, until
the reader doesn’t know which end is up … Or the good from
the bad. This book is guaranteed not to disappoint, and will
leave one begging for more. Fear not, another story is already
on the way. This is a must-read book, only cementing Ms. Feehan’s
position as a genre favorite for yet another round.
Old Book Barn Gazette
with Ms. Feehan's usual strong, memorable characters (especially
Ryland and his men - you have to love those alpha males!) and
intricate storytelling, Shadow Game is a cross between a techno-thriller
and a deeply moving love story. I loved this book, and though
it's quite different than Ms. Feehan's beloved Carpathian series,
I think you'll love it too. Dare we hope that Shadow Game is
the first book in another superb series?
