My feelings for Toxic Game are a bit of a mixed bag. Some parts of the storyline I loved, others not as much. Am I glad I read Toxic Game - Yes, but it's not a favourite from the series.
The majority of the storyline occurs across a very small period of time in the same location. Draden and Shylah are isolated in the jungle due to being infected with a deadly virus, and after a while it started to feel quite repetitive. Deadly Virus, impending death, LOTS of feelings between them........BUT deadly virus! I was very happy when they were finally able to leave the jungle, but that doesn't occur until much later in the story.
I really liked the characters, Draden and Shylah. Shylah especially - she's so strong and deadly. She is very capable in dangerous situations, and fully committed to seeing her mission through until the end.
So, maybe not my favourite in the series, but I'll continue on with it. I have really enjoyed reading some of the other characters stories that have appeared in the previous Ghostwalker novels, and I love that they are starting to multiply ( kids!! ).
I have always loved the Ghost Walker books, but this is probably my least favourite. The storyline just didn't go far enough for me. They spent most of the time in a rangers cabin and I found some of those parts a little dull. I really like the characters, Draden and Skylar, especially that Skylar wasn't some super soft, wussy female. I prefer them all out kicking butt to be honest, so the slower pace of this novel meant I didn't completely enjoy all of it.
I can never go past Christine Feehan stories, she weaves a tale that grabs you in straight away and I love that she always has strong female characters as well as an alpha what is a story without an Alpha Male or 2 or a whole team of them. This book won't disappoint at all.
Draden Freeman faces an enemy that he may not be able to overcome right when he discovers his mate in this exceptional, exhilarating and emotional Ghostwalker novel. Draden and Shylah are two bold characters that not only demand readers’ attention but capture their hearts while they face their toughest mission ever. The emotional draw of this story is strong and really captivates readers with how realistically the story plays out in regards to how Shylah and Draden handle all the stress and their goals after they are infected with the deadly virus. While the relationship hovers on a very suspenseful edge throughout the story, the romance between them of course is seriously hot and Draden pulls some sweet and romantic surprises out that readers can’t help but envy.
This story deals with some real-life events that could and probably have happened in the world of terrorists which adds chills to the story as Draden and Shylah and the Ghostwalkers race against time while trying to take down the enemies and unravel the clues to find out just who is really behind the evil plan. This fast paced plot steadily builds the adrenaline pumping suspense throughout the story with lots of exhilarating events and readers cannot put this book down no matter what else is happening around them.
