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 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.
I really enjoyed this book. I think it's my favorite so far in the series. Tansy was such a realistic character, because she was strong and independent yet had moments where she became emotional. She was down to earth and despite everything she has to deal with, with her abilities, she has remained uncorrupted. I fell in love with Kaden from the start. His tragic childhood and wounded spirit makes you want to comfort him. There was great chemistry between the two characters and a realistic time period for their love to develop. The best part of this book was that neither character had a weak personality that allowed for the other to be dominant. Both characters were more than willing to speak their minds, I particularly enjoyed Tansy putting Kaden in his place when he got too bossy.
The story line was very well written. It was slow in the beginning but there were enough twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. The criminals were fairly predictable but didn't take away from the overall story. The back stories of certain characters were unusual for the author, which made it all the more enjoyable because it wasn't so predictable. The ending left me satisfied. MATURE CONTENT, BE ADVISED!
Overall: 4.3/ 5
