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: 3.5 / 5
Recommendation: A definite pick if you are into paranormal romance with a touch of eroticism and the unbelievable but for a  few lull moments.

Predatory Game is the sixth installment in the Ghostwalker Series by Christine Feehan and published in February 2008. This is the story of the Ghostwalkers Jess "Jesse" Calhoun & Saber Wynter.



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 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 so he could get them to produce the next generation of super soldiers. Supposedly dead Whintey is in hiding at his hidden location 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.

Jesse Calhoun is an ex-Navy SEAL who is confined to a wheel chair because of serious injuries caused in one of the Ghostwalker operations. He shares his house with Saber Wynter who apparently is on the run. She, while being a housemate, also works at Jesse's radio station. Both have violent past that they hide from each other while they keep their friendship secure. However, when they come to know about their past as Ghostwalkers, their friendship is tested. Yet, they endure it and move on because they have to face to the enemy known - Dr. Whitney - and the enemy unknown - someone has been stalking Saber.

Jesse works with Lily Whitney-Miller on his legs so he can walk again while Saber continue her job at the radio station. But they are unable to deny the attraction they have towards each other, the strong pull - which they were unable to understand before they knew they were Ghostwalkers paired by Dr. Whitney. It was a fun read to watch them both fight it, endure it and finally give-in to it. But, Saber doesn’t come as innocent as she looks - she has a deadly secret that when revealed could cause her to lose Jesse and run again. Fighting two enemies in the predatory game they are playing with Jesse and Saber makes an interesting element.

I could empathize with Saber very much here especially after reading what kind of experiments had Dr. Whitney performed on her. One gets to grow angrier and angrier at Whitney. However one cant route for Saber and Jesse - the underdogs who come out shining in the end. Another web spun well again by Christine however there are some lull moments - some situations where I felt I could overlook them and still understand the plot. But for that this is a definite recommendation for continuing the series on.

Oh forgot to mention. You get a glimpse into the Third Ghostwalker Team (Team Three: Marine Force Recon Urban Warfare Team). Yes, indeed more stories coming up as the teams are increasing. :)
