Publisher's Summary

The latest sexy and suspenseful GhostWalker novel from the New York Times best-selling author of Spider Game.

When radical terrorists take hostages in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a super soldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better, run faster, disappear when necessary, and hunt the enemy along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that. A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke's different. His gaze, his touch, they awaken feelings inside her she never thought possible. He's the kind of man she could settle down with - if she can keep him alive.

Highly Recommend

Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances? How does this one compare?

lets just face the fact that i could listen to Jim Frangione read the phone book and would be perfectly content! He makes every character come to life, captures the nuances of each individual and holds you spellbound till the end. Highly recommend this series and this exceptional narrator!

Power Game

This is a fantastic story of betrayal, death and love. Smart and beautiful Bella finds a way to escape her handlers and ends up in the ghost walker territory. There she finds things she never believed she would have, love and a family. I recommend this to everyone who loves Christine Feehan's and those who enjoy stories with lots of action and romance.
The narrator was very good and enhanced the power of the words

Back to the original Ghostwalker feel!

I had gotten a bit put out over the last few Ghostwalker stories. The heroes were overbearing to the point of being verbally abusive, and it sickened me (I didn't even read Spider Game because several reviewers made similar complaints). The sex was gratuitous and unnecessary to the plot (and was borderline abusive IMO). I don't mind a steamy scene or two, but I don't want it taking up over 60% of the book.

After waiting a few days to read some of the reviews, I decided to give CF one more chance with Power Game. I'm glad I did! This has the feel of the earlier Ghostwalker stories. The hero is alpha, but not disgustingly so. The heroine kicks butt on her own, but also accepts help without being a doormat or railroaded.

I'm also glad at least one long-time storyline has ended. I feel like CF lets series go on too long, sometimes, without any real resolutions. I feel like at least one loose thread got snipped with this story.

Finally, while Jim Frangione did a fantastic job with the narration, I really missed Tom Stechschulte. He's the voice of the Ghostwalkers for me.

So, overall, I'm glad to say I can recommend this book to my fellow Ghostwalker fans. I feel like the series is back on track!

OH Boy!! this was and Excellent story!! Kudos to Christine Feehan for and great addition to the GhostWalker series!!

Nonny/Grace Fontenot has become a GW in her own right. She is the idea of everyone's adorable grandmother. Power Game starts off with Nonny who has housed 9 of her grandsons GW friends. This is Ezekiel Fortunes story and his paired mate Bellisia Adams. Ezekiel is a doctor and a the Captain of the PJ GhostWalker team. Nonny has the second sight and is sending Ezekiel on an errand to town for her. Nonny knows that's were he will meet the GW female Bella he has been paired with by Dr. Peter Whitney.

Bellisia has remarkable GW Octopi DNA and has escaped her handlers Gerald and Adam after her mission to spy on Violet Symthe Freeman for Dr. Peter Whitney. Bella as she is call has information that she overheard while following and spying on Violet Smythe. Violet is one of Whitney enhanced orphans who has turned against her own kind the GW. She has sold the PJ's out to Bernard Lee Cheng who wants to start his own GW army of Soldiers but first he needs to know how it's done and Violet has told him how and were to find the team that is living with Nonny/Grace Fortenot in the Bayou of Louisiana. Cheng wants to capture one of the GhostWalkers extract his DNA and put them through all sorts of tortures test to find out how what they are made of and can endure.

Cheng's forces succeed in capturing Ezekiel, but before he is completely dissected he is save by Bellisia. This begins one action packed and fast pace story.

Power Game is full of the action scenes that GW fans love and of course our favorite heros the GW's kick butt and ask question later. We get to revisit Pepper and Wyatts triplet viper DNA baby girls. Who are just adorable. I just love Ginger, Tyme and Cannelle. Power Game took me on a whirlwind of a ride. I loved all the characters of the PJ team. We get some good revenge in this story as it leads us into the future of were the GW series is going. Oh How Sweet is Revenge!! I won't tell what it is, you will have to read for yourself. But GW fans will be happy about this revenge I assure you. What amazes me is some of the parallels of what has happen in the current elections in the United States and how power can drive crooked elected government leaders to show there prejudice for human beings of different races. Its as if Christine Feehan could see into the future or had some uncanny vision of what's was happening in the real world around us. The ridiculous and the dangerousness of Prejudice comes out in this story. Thank Goodness the Good Guys Win the Day!!

I Highly Recommend Power Game its worth the cost and it won't let you down. Its written in the true Ghostwalker fashion with a semi steamily sensual love relationship between Ezekiel and Bellisia. The sex has been toned way down. Power Game is about the story of people who want power at all cost!! with a lovely and sweet romance between Ezekiel and Bellisia!!

Classic Ghostwalker.

Zeke is kind of passive at first. Belesia is the more interesting personality of the pair. Or course they were paired together by Whitney. Both deadly in their own skill set, Belesia is quite appealing as a ghostwalker addition. Though she has some insecurity when it comes to settling down in one place, Zeke finds his way to winning her over. All of the ghostwalker men are singleminded in this one thing...they don't take no for an answer. So in Zeke's mind there is no question, Be!la is his women. The insecurities Bella has play true throughout this book as she fights for her newly found family. The Bayou and the Fontinues are a perfect setting for this pair as well.

I was also glad that the sex scenes were paired down in comparison to the last couple of books. Also the narration was spot on. I enjoyed every minute of the narration. so all things considered, I give this 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So much better than the last several

I love love love the new narrator! I think the last guy was good, but he was sounding off in the last book. Maybe he's just getting old? I noticed it. It was distracting. I like this guy better. I hope she stays with the new one.

This book was great. I really liked it.

I started wondering if I was done with this book series on the last one. I'm not a fan of Trap. He's a bit too much. That last book was too much of a lot of things, and not enough actual story. But, this one made up for it.

GOOD BUT NOT MY FAVORITE

I love Christine Feehan's books and this happens to be one of my favorite series, however, this one just kind of fell flat for me. I didn't feel the flow I am used to. It was a little repetitive in places. A statement would be made and a couple of paragraphs down, the same thing would be said again, sometimes using the same exact words and sometimes changed up a bit but meaning the same thing.

Now about the narration. First, I need to say that I am a HUGE Tom Stechschulte fan, that being said, I do try to give new to me or new to a series narrators a chance. Though
Mr Frangione does have a pleasant enough voice, I just felt that I was being read to and not being emersed in the story and transported into the
GhostWalker world. I listen with ear buds and all of the voices just sounded alike to me. The pitch in the women's voices, though a touch higher, sounded the same except for
the accents. My biggest issue was
with the voice and Cajun accent of Nonny. Not what I expected. I understand all narrator's have their own way of narrating, but I just wasn't liking the change after so
many books into the series. Mr Frangione had some big shoes to fill
after us having had the pleasure of Mr Stechschulte expertise. I don't know why the change was made, and I hope it wasn't due to illness or worse on Mr Stechschulte's part, and wish someone will let us know why a change was made. If this is a permanent change, I will still listen to future books, but, in my humble opinion, if it could been avoided, a change shouldn't have been made.

Love the story and the reader was good. I wish Tom Stechschulte was the reader, he was wonderful at the different voices and accents.

Power Game

Excellent story. I really liked both the protagonists. They were strong without being dictatorial.

The narrator did a good job, but I wish he had developed the character voices more. Sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking. There was little difference between the men & women's voices. I wouldn't let that deter anyone from listening, though.

Hurray! The female traitor gets her deserved end!

Even though I've had enough of the swamps, Power Game was a welcome addition to the "Game Plan"! It definately and with great style, ended the hateful swath of a long time evil female who shunned her beginnings as an experimental baby girl and repeatly undermined and attacked her sisters. It also reinforced that love and family is everyone's right and kept Nonie as the beloved matriarch of the Everglades Compound. How could she not be loved with a pipe in one hand, a shotgun in the other, and being mission control from her rocking chair on the front porch? Of course we have the addition of one more "daughter" added to the extended family and another peek at the 3 precocious toddler girls who remind us of twins in the mountains and bundles of mystery on the city streets. Can't wait to see what CF will do with the babies in the future! Power Game has wrapped up some questions but now I hope we hear from some of the original Night Walkers who were supporting figures who now need their "game mate" and bring us up to speed in the mountain and city on the bay compounds! Even though the series began to lose its steam and unfamiliar characters were created center stage, This is still an all time favorite that I hope is coming back around!

Accents and voices are just not right.

Would you try another book written by Christine Feehan or narrated by Jim Frangione?

I have all the Ghostwalker books as its my favourite Christine Feehan series but I will not buy another audio with Jim Frangione as the narrator. His voices all sound the same and his accents are barely there.Very disappointing.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Frangione?

I really wish they had managed to get Tom Steckshulte to have read this one too. Failing that, there must be someone that has a wider vocal range to give the different characters more definition and with a better grasp of the required accents.

Any additional comments?

I love all the Ghostwalker books that are based in and around New Orleans. Nonny is an endearing character who ties all the books into a mini series within a bigger story arc but it is one I love returning to.
