Review: Conspiracy Game - Christine Feehan

Jack Norton is a GhostWalker, a genetically enhanced sniper with a merciless sense of justice, a phantom welcomed by the anonymity of the night.  But a mission to rescue his brother in the jungle has left him vulnerable to rebel forces.  His only salvation is his power of telepathy.  Then he meets Briony, an unusual beauty on a mission of her own.  But they share more than the sweltering heat...

Briony also has GhostWalker powers.  Yet she's different.  She doesn't know what she is, or what she's capable of.  But her enemies do.  And Jack and Briony's flight will take them into a frightening conspiracy where the shocking truth is something neither of them could have foreseen - or can escape...

Review:
When Jack goes on a mission with the GhostWalkers to rescue his brother he ends up captured by rebel forces.  He is going to need all of his enhanced psychic skills to escape from his enemies before he suffers even more torture at their hands.  When he first meets Briony he realises immediately that she is a GhostWalker with abilities very similar to his own but it soon becomes clear that she doesn't know much about her skills and how she obtained them.  With their enemies closing in on them - wanting to capture Briony for sinister purposes - Jack is the only one she can trust to keep her safe.  But the conspiracy goes deeper than either of them could have suspected and they are going to need all the help they can get to survive.

Conspiracy Game is the 4th book in the GhostWalker series and although it can be read as a stand alone story in terms of Jack and Briony as a couple I would strongly recommend reading the story in order to get the full enjoyment of the back story of the GhostWalkers.  This is a series that I'm really enjoying and I'd highly recommend it to all fans of supernatural romance.

Although I've loved all of the GhostWalker heroes Jack quickly became my favorite - he is one sexy alpha male!  He is a man who keeps himself to himself, someone that even the other GhostWalkers are wary of and the only person he is close to is his twin Ken.  There is a darkness inside him because of things he saw and did in his past but he is also has a soft centre and is very caring.  He is frightened of his feelings for Briony and doesn't feel that he is good enough for her but when she turns to him for help he will do anything to protect her and keep her safe.

Briony is the perfect heroine for him - she has grown up with 4 protective brothers and knows how to deal with a domineering alpha male.  While she lets him get away with a lot she is definitely able to stand up for herself when she needs to.  I really enjoyed the chemistry between her & Jack and also loved watching them both with Ken - I can't wait to read his story which is the next book in the series!  The ongoing story with the GhostWalkers and the evil genius Dr Whitney is getting really interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out in the rest of the series.  It is quite clear that Dr Whitney has been doing some major plotting and I'm not sure what the consequences will be for Lily and the others.

If you're new to this series then I'd highly recommend you give it a try but make sure you start with book 1 Shadow Game.  If you're already reading the series then I dare you not to fall for Jack when you read this installment - he really is irresistible!

  2. Hi Melissa, I'd definitely recommend this series - I'm loving the GhostWalkers and the fact that they all have such different abilities. It's totally different from any other series I've read & makes a nice change from vamps & weres (not that I don't love vamps & weres LOL)

  3. This book and the next one (Ken's book) are probably my favorites in the series so far. Ken's book is so sad though. I'm glad you're enjoying the series!

  5. @ Emily - I'm really looking forward to Ken's story, I had a feeling that it might be a bit of a heartbreaker though with his history! I'll make sure I have tissues on hand when I'm reading it LOL :o)

    @ cj'alhafiz - I've not read any of Christine Feehan's Leopard series but if it's as good as this one I'm sure you'll enjoy it! When I've finished this series I'm planning to start working my way through her other books so I'll look forward to hearing what you think of it :o)
