Samurai Game by Christine Feehan

Title: Samurai Game

Series: GhostWalkers bk 10

Author: Christine Feehan

Genre: Paranormal

In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it’s her job to fulfill them. But she’s playing a far more dangerous game—one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense.

But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players—a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge. Both expendable. Both with nothing left to lose.

The GhostWalker series is one of my favorite series, and has been ever since the very first book Shadow Game. From the blurb on this book I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like it. But I’m glad I read it as it has Sam from the original group of GhostWalkers.

I do have to say before I start my review if you haven’t read this series yet, I’m just going to tell you to go buy the first book and read the whole series as it needs to be read in order.

Ok now for the review…

When the book starts I couldn’t figure out what the heck was going on, except that one of the GhostWalkers was killing people associated with Whitney who is the big bad guy in this series.

When the hero and heroine finally do meet Sam and Amazi they end up in a huge battle with some really bad tangos on their way to their compound. While I liked how this played out I really wish there had been a conclusion to who the bad guys were.

From that point I liked the story as the plot moved along really well and there was some great memory sharing with all the guys from Sam’s team.

Well that is until a couple of words kept throwing me out of the story as I just didn’t find them believable. I was able to get past them by skipping over the word every time it showed up.

And then a battle came towards the end of the book that came out of nowhere and wasn’t fully explained. I found myself re-reading this part over and over again trying to make sense of it. It came out of nowhere and there was no real explanation of they why’s.

Ok now to what didn’t bug me. I really liked Sam and Azami as a couple, they really fit for who they are as individuals. Sam was really respectful of Azami’s culture and how it impacts who she is, and how she lives her life when she isn’t a GhostWalker Samuari.

One of my favorite scene’s in the book happens between Sam and General Rainer his commanding officer and also his foster father.

So while there was things that bugged me about the book, they weren’t enough to make me stop reading it. And while I wish it had been better it’s one I will probably read again and just skip the parts I didn’t like.
