Continuing with the critiques I started in 2015, here is the next in series – a book review.
Prologue: Go here.
For review of all books under Ghostwalker series: Go here.

Stars: 4 / 5
Recommendation: A definite pick if you are into paranormal romance with a touch of mystery, eroticism and the unbelievable.

Street Game is the eighth installment in the Ghostwalker Series by Christine Feehan and published in December of 2009. We had seen a glimpse from Team Three: Marine Force Recon Urban Warfare Team in Predatory Game where Brian Hutton comes to aid of Saber Wynter (wife of Jess "Jesse" Calhoun).  In this book we get to meet the rest of the team and also go through the passionate reunion between Mack "Top" McKinley - their team leader - and Jaimie Fielding.



Ghostwalkers are a group of women and men who special talents, including psychic and physical abilities (both enhanced genetically and natural) and some abilities more rarer than others. Dr. Peter Whitney had spear-headed this operation for a long time. In the beginning he used girls - orphans from around the world who had psychic abilities - for his experiments. Later on he had got ridden of those orphans except for Lily whom he adopted. The Ghostwalkers learn that Whitney had paired the male and female ghostwalkers through genetic pheromones so he could get them to produce the next generation of super soldiers. Supposedly dead Whintey is in hiding elsewhere  where he continued experimenting on the remaining girls (once he didn’t deem as failures). Lily Whitney-Miller and her husband Captain Ryland Miller - head of Team One: Rangers and Green Berets Ghostwalkers Team (Army) - are determined to find these orphaned girls and other Ghostwalkers to keep the safe and alive hoping to right the wrongs her father had committed.

Urban warfare is an art that this team of Ghostwalkers have mastered. This team has grown up together watching their backs all the time, since they were living in the streets of Chicago. But it comes with its own perils and anything can happen. Mack knows that it is how the game is played. And in walks Jaimie Fielding who had long ago left them for various reasons.  The street game just turned into a more personal game for Mack and Jaimie - each fighting off the attraction between them as well as fighting the enemy, Dr. Whitney, who want to wipe them off or watch them in extreme conditions just to see what they would do.

Jaimie known for her amazing computer skills, also comes with ghostwalker skills, unknown to team as to when she would have signed up. She keeps her abilities to herself but she knows she is very valuable to her team and family. Risking her heart once again, she walks back into their lives and into life of Mack eventually settling with him. Mack has hidden skills himself that he hadnt shared with anyone on the team.

It was a wonderful read to watch the team come together again, bond and learn to rely and trust each other.  The roller-coaster ride that Mack and Jaimie go through as they start to fall back in love again was sweet to read. Christine Feehan again brought in some well-executed combat scenes melded with romance in this book. Each member of team also comes with hidden secrets, complex nature and makes you want to know them more and more. Another good book in the series that is enjoyable with a hint of thrill.

This is one team that I want to know more about than the others (not that I don’t want to read others. :P) and looking forward to the next episode  with them.
