Return to the world of the GhostWalkers with "the queen of paranormal romance" (USA Today) as she raises the stakes in the ultimate game of love and death ...

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 are 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.

Tansy Meadows has grown up, having to force herself to distance from others, even her own parents. Tansy has a psychic talent-due to Dr Whitney machinations, which have caused a lot of suffering. Tansy’s talent is when she touches a object, the energy about the person that touched that object bombardes her, if its violent energy, it seeps into her mind and she has a hard time staying in control. Currently when this story starts, is she is a photographer so is up in the mountains tracking a mountain lion, since she has a affinity for animals. However, she is shocked to discover that someone has found her, needing her help with the very thing she fears that will fragment her mind forever. Kaden Montague is a Ghostwalker, and has been sent out on a mission to retrieve Tansy and use her to solve the riddle to murders that have been occuring of late, which apparently is a game, that they must solve so they can catch them before its too late, and his Ghostwalker team is compromised. First however, he has to get Tansy to agree with the plan, which she is very hesitant to do, hell even Kaden is hesitant but he knows he needs to be able to track these killers and the best person to do it is Tansy. Both Tansy and Kaden are taken on a rocky road of adventure, intrigue and passion the likes neither of them can control.

As always I have always loved reading Christine Feehan, and I could probably re read all of her books. Right now however I am working on re reading her Ghostwalker Series, I just have loved reading this series of hers with such delight and pleasure. I love the thrilling suspense, and the intense passion that rises up between the main characters of each book, and this one was no different, and even after it being the second time that I have read it, gave me a thrill. Murder Game has always been one of my favorites of this series, just because I fall in love with both Kaden and Tansy. Kaden is a Ghostwalker, military man, and appears to be a cold blooded being through and through until he meets Tansy, who softens him up like Jello. Its very amusing and satisfying to watch though, as I am sure all that have read this one understand what I mean by that. Tansy of course, has lived apart from most people because of her psychic abilities, having been part of the group of little girls that Dr. Whitney experiented on. She has to learn to deal with psychic energy, having tracked killers before, and spent some time in the hospital, has her wary of this handsome stranger. When she agree’s to help Kaden with tracking these killers, she didn’t know what was more at risk her mind becoming fragmented, or her heart doing so. However as these two lost souls connect and work together to solve this dangerous game, they also find a more dangerous game, that one of the risk of True Love. Christine Feehan has done it again, and anyone that likes a good thrilling romance will certainly fall in love with this one!
