Confession: Sometimes, I pick up books on book stands in libraries, at Barnes and Noble,etc. I give them a quick scan/skim read, a technique in which I read beginning chapter(s), predict plot action, flip through to juicy parts and gloss over the end. (BTW...Anyone else really good at gauging plot points because you know the formula already
Anyway, I wasn't sure about this series. I love Feehan, but I am picky about my PNR genre, so in trying out her Drake Sisters series
, I found it was a total bust for me, and I am still trying to get into her Leopard series
, but I keep putting it off. However, I just love the Dark Series
to pieces! So I tried the GhostWalker series. Yep, did my scoping it out
technique and went straight to book #4 (this one!) because skimming other plots in books #1-3 just didn't catch me.
Yet, this one did
and I could tell it had potential...I was right. It was awesome: great alpha hero, strong brother bonds (Some POV from both bros who are psychic(inner conversations)
, traumatic back-stories and great chemistry among the characters.
The hero is Jack Norton. He is bossy, protective and hotter than Hawt! His sweet heroine, Briony, is a good match: slightly submissive, quietly strong and very loving (which is needed for Jack and his brother Ken). It follows a formula, but the characters lightly cling to you so that you react to them. Good characters can do that:)
I recommend this book and the next, [bc:Deadly Game|229280|Deadly Game (GhostWalkers, #5)|Christine Feehan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1288252137s/229280.jpg|2451331]. As for the others in this series....meh, maybe, if I can give them a chance despite my first impressions, but I do trust my instinct most of the time. I read the reviews:)
The problem with series writing is that it can get too formulaic, so I stick with and choose to read the books in a series that have characters that excite me the most, unless I am addicted to the author. Guess I am only half-addicted to Feehan, except when it comes to the Carpathians! LOL
