Not my style of writing, maybe? Way more romance novel (like what I always pictured trashy romance novels to be like, but I haven't read them) feel to it than I expected. I liked the characters and the concept -- but it just wasn't believable to me (believable in the world of paranormal fiction), and I felt myself forced to keep reading just to finish. I'm confused about all the 5-star ratings.... ( )

Love the cover of this edition but when I opened it up to the first page, my heart dropped. The small font combined with almost non-existent line spacing made this reader-unfriendly. The words looked like they'd been desperately crammed on to the page and though environmentally friendly, using fewer pages, it's not something I'd expect from well-established publishers. It made this book seem almost never-ending considering the total number of pages.

Anyway, on to the actual story. This one was "love at first sight" and not the normal kind either, this was insta-love. I swear, if Lily's father and associates hadn't been in the room when Lily and Ryland met, they'd have been trying to get busy through the bars of his cell. No getting to know one another, no slow build up, just bang instant life-long partners.

Despite this unusual lack of romance considering the genre, the science behind these Ghostwalkers was intriguing and perhaps may even explain why there was no courting period: apparently it's possible Lily's father scientifically-engineered the incredibly strong attraction between his daughter and the Captain. Kind of scary to have no choice in the matter, huh?

That's the kind of man her father is, or was. The things he did in the name of his research, his selfish curiosity, were terrifying. He gave no thought to morals or ethics. That's not to say he did these things to be malicious, to take pleasure in others' pain, he only cared about results. If he had to bully a child, cause her pain, to get what he needed, it didn't matter to him. This made him by far the most interesting character and to see his past revealed to Lily, who was horrified but continued to love him in spite of his inhumane deeds.

I'll be continuing the series but hopefully we'll see more romance in the next one. ( )

This series has been hit or miss for me. The first book I barely finished. The female lead was not endearing, in fact she got on my nerves. Pretty much the entire series she annoys me. So, if you find that you do not like this book try the second one before you give up. ( )

Contemporary paranormal from Feehan. While the writing style is very similar to the Carpathians, it's a totally different feel and dynamic. Fast paced. Overloaded with emotional baggage. Still worth reading the next. ( )

This is the first book I’ve ready by Christine Feehan and I must say, I waited too long! It was hard to get into during the first chapter but once the story got rolling I couldn’t put it down. The characters are rich, engaging, and emotionally identifiable. This is definitely a story to get lost in! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

I’m not a literary major & the above review is just my personal opinion. Anything that I may have said that offends you, your intelligence, your profession, or beliefs is unintentional and irrelevant to my personal review. If your opinion differs from mine, please, feel free to make your own comments and disagree.

Book description
The classified experiment is the brainchild of renowned scientist Peter Whitney and his brilliant daughter, Lily. Created to enhance the psychic abilities of an elite squadron, it can transform their natural mental powers into a unique military weapon. But something goes wrong. In the isolated underground labs, the men have been dying-victims of bizarre accidents. Captain Ryland Miller knows he is next. When Dr. Whitney himself is murdered, Ryland has only one person left to trust: the beautiful Lily. Possessed of an uncanny sixth sense herself, Lily shares Ryland's every new fear, every betrayal, every growing suspicion, and every passionate beat of the heart. Together, they will be drawn deeper into the labyrinth of her father's past…and closer to a secret that someone would kill to keep hidden.
