    TOXIC GAME by Christine Feehan is the fifteenth book in the Ghostwalker series While it can be read as a standalone novel the reader experience will be enhanced if these are read in order The story line takes place in the Indonesian jungle and in Louisiana This is a paranormal romantic suspense novelDr Draden Freeman and his GhostWalker team are on a rescue mission in the jungles of Indonesia When he gets infected by a virus released by a terrorist group he forces his team to leave him behind to avoid spreading the virus Meanwhile Shylah Cosmo is on a mission to track the creators of the virus and remain unseen When Draden gets hit by a lucky shot from one of the terrorists Shylah helps him and becomes exposed to the virus herselfThe story hooked me from the beginning Draden and Shylah are compelling characters that the reader can root for They felt three dimensional and gained depth as the story progressed The internal and external conflicts were well defined and arose out of characterization and circumstance rather than feeling contrived or forced The stakes and tension were high enough to make this a page turnerWhile this novel had plenty of action it was much than that While this is a paranormal romantic suspense story there were no instant steamy scenes They did not occur until about 75% through the book Instead the story line built up to those scenes in a way that fit the characters' circumstances The novel also tackles several themes including hemorrhagic viruses biological terrorism greed power plays romance and much Overall the author did a great job of worldbuilding The writing was absorbing compelling and compulsively readable The plot was suspenseful appealing thought provoking and perfectly paced I look forward to reading the next book in this series

    475 starsI love this series ❤️Usually once it published I binge immediatelyBut I kind of reluctant to start this one when I realised where this story location happenedYou see many authors love to write bad stuff of places or people which they don’t familiar with well Hollywood love that stuff too 🤨However I can see Ms Feehan worked very hard with her research department to give us as accurate as possible how to portray the locals life and what the part of this Island looks like Especially the way she wrote about the weather it was really hot and true LOL I also almost thought Shayla part Indonesian too by how she wrote her character LOL She sound like West Sumatran girl who are matrilineal people where the women NOT men who in charge in running their clans or family And the family’s name pass on from mother’s instead of father’s So well done for your research for this book Ms Feehan ❤️I can’t wait for the next book can we get Joe’s story please? 😘❤️❤️❤️

    Latest installment in the GhostWalker series — two GhostWalkers Draden and Shylah stuck in enemy territory and both of them infected with a lethal virus How to get out of that impossible situation without succumbing to a horrible death?The GhostWalkers are soldiers whose DNAs have been altered making them stronger faster—absolutely lethal The mad scientist Whitney who made them that way without their consent is hell bent on using them supposedly for the good of the country and he sees them as weapons instead of human beings Yeah you can’t rationalize crazy He has no ualms about manipulating them to get what he wants I really really hope he gets his comeuppance soon Despite his machiavellic machinations the GhostWalkers rallied together and the set up a code to live byWhen Draden got infected during his latest mission he did the right thing the honorable thing — a scene that was poignant with the impact of his decision and in doing so he condemned himself to a vicious death He was resigned to dying alone resigned to how horrific his last moments would be—or so he thoughtOn her own mission Shaylah broke cover for Draden and inadvertently exposed herself to the virus I liked her a lot—her thoughts her insights her ideals and the values she had Her tenacity not to become what Whitney wanted She was admirable and a strong heroineNeither of them expected to find the other How cruel was it to find the one person who fit you so perfectly just when your days were numbered? I enjoyed watching their love blossom and how they coped with the fact they would both dieThe writing was excellent All the descriptions done so well it was easy to imagine the world of the jungle and the scenes Also it was evident from knowledge ingrained in the story that there was in depth research done on viruses by the author I was also very happy to see the mention of some of my favorite GhostWalkers in this storyI love how Christine Feehan keeps coming up with all these fantastic plot lines with a special story for each GhostWalker linking the couples to the rest of the GhostWalkers as a close knit community of people who look out for each other Each individual story adds value to the main story from the first book I really really want a special story for Joe Malichai and Mordichai Those two just crack me up I can’t wait to see what else Christine Feehan will come up with next with the GhostWalkersPosted on Blog

    Fifteenth in the GhostWalker paranormal romantic suspense series and revolving around the Louisiana team of GhostWalkers The couple focus is on Dr Draden Freeman and Shylah Cosmos struggling to survive in Sumatra IndonesiaMy TakeI loved that start lol What can I say I'm a sucker for the too competent spec ops type laughter especially when they make such an impressionThe Air Force pararescue team didn't seem affected by anything as mundane as the heat or terrorists The crazy thing was they were mostly officers Doctors These men had seen combat and looked as tough as nails giving off a dangerous vibeThis is one of Feehan's better stories after that string of jokes she's done but I do have three niggles the repetitiveness was so annoying; that weird paragraph about Draden and dragons that wasn't inserted very well; and I do wish Feehan had been explicit about the GhostWalkers' belief that Whitney had engineered the whole thing I was confused When I'm reading I don't want to have to stop and try to puzzle out what the author is sayingFeehan uses a third person dual point of view from the perspectives of Draden and Shylah which is the primary source of all the repetitionoy I know I like it when an author reminds us of events issues and pertinent details from past stories in a series but there is such a thing as OVERkillI do love that these two are partners eual partners And that while they accept their fates they don't stop fighting AndsighDraden is such a romantic sighing That special eventeven sighingI also love the supportiveness and love this extended family has for each other It's what keeps me coming backAnd I am definitely trying out some version of that shrimp dish Shylah is so excited about at the endThe StoryA terrorist group destroyed a Sumatran village using a deadly new virus The WHO staff are among the dead Indonesian special ops soldiers are also among them Their only hope is the GhostWalkersNow Draden's only hope is that he can save a bullet for himself And one for his new met partner Shylah CosmosAnd Calvin believes the GhostWalkers are a jokeThe CharactersPeony Shylah Cosmos is an assassin for Dr Whitney with excellent tracking

    This is how I dream a relationship should be direct brutal honesty and humor Save me from a romance where the drama comes from misunderstandings between the main characters I always want to knock some sense into those characters Draden and Shylah I want to be friends with and found myself laughing out loud at their storyPS So much deep research made the virus storyline believable tooMy honest review was made possible thanks to an Advanced Reader Copy from the author

    When faced with your own mortality even if you knew your life would bring it sooner than later and the sooner happens when you meet the one who made life worth livingwhat would you do? Christine Feehan does an amazing job showing us how Draden Freeman and Shylah Cosmos deal with this This book from the first chapter had me by the heart and my emotions invested in the outcome From heart pounding to heart stopping and every “heart” phrase you can think of this book covers it all Nothing to lose has these characters open to feelings and sharing life events they would normally hide Communication is key and recognizing the things no matter how small that hold importance is key to knowing each other They’re open to love to accepting what they mean to each other what others in their lives mean to them and realize they mean something to those they have come to consider family Also determined to save anyone else from their fate they hunt down the enemy while the GhostWalker pararescue Team fight to save them and vast populations in a science fiction plot woven with true science plausibility that had me on edge Primary and secondary protagonists you love hope for Wonderfully written scenes that show how friendship can be as strong as family bonds And it can be found in the worst of life circumstances Dr Whitney the main narcissistic misogynistic antagonist's actions had me fuming and oh loving to hate him Along with Antagonists surfacing drawing ire towards them making me hope that the GhostWalkers will deal out karma and save the day
