Jonas “Smoke” Harper has watched his brothers find their perfect mates, never imagining he’d actually meet someone who complements every part of him—even the monster that lurks within. But his instant connection with Camellia goes far beyond wanting the intelligent, beautiful, and lethal woman in his bed. They are two parts of a whole, linked to each other and to a larger network that exists everywhere around them.

Camellia has lived on her own for a long time, relying on her unique psychic abilities to keep her safe. She knows that Jonas was literally made for her, and that makes their addictive connection more dangerous than a thousand enhanced super soldiers. Once the larger threat looming over them is dealt with she’s going to get far away as fast as she can. Life has taught her that the only one she can truly trust is herself.

Jonas can sense Camellia is going to run—and the hunter inside doesn’t want to let go. Not when he knows how good they’ll be together. So he’ll just have to use all of his considerable skills to convince her to stay….

My thoughts

I learned so much from Phantom Game. Christine Feehan introduces us to botany in a very unique way. I should say a Ghostwalker way. (chuckle).

I knew plants could be used as weapons, but Feehan puts a whole new spin on it with Camellia and Jonas. I love the interplay between the characters. Jonas respects Camellia before he even meets her so there is a connection before Whitney’s interference can happen. Something is always an issue when it comes to love for these Ghostwalkers.

“Loving someone was grounded in who they were. Their character. The traits that made them who they were.”

Loc. 4490

I love the friendship between the guys (Jonas, Kyle, and Jeff) and how no matter what they have each other’s backs. Camellia is a head-strong heroine because she has had to be. I find her to be a bit more withdrawn than Feehan’s other characters in this series, but her trauma sits in the forefront of her mind. 

There isn’t as much intimacy as there has been in Feehan’s other books, but this is probably because they are on the run all the time in the forest. Showers were not available at that time (chuckle).

I love seeing how everyone and Feehan throws a huge monkey wrench into a long-time couple that we get to see on the sidelines. (popcorn and heart hurt moment all at the same-time) All Phantom Game has done is made me want more. There is nothing like a Ghostwalker hero.

I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
