In this sizzling and suspenseful GhostWalker novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Spider Game, two lovers discover there’s no telling who will come out on top.
When radical terrorists take hostages in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a supersoldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better and run faster than the enemy, disappear when necessary and hunt along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that...
A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn’t want to control her or kill her. But Zeke is different. His gaze, his touch—they awaken feelings inside her that she never thought possible. He’s the kind of man she could settle down with—if she can keep him alive...
Lucky number 13 in Feehan's contemporary paranormal romance Ghostwalker series (after Spider Game) is packed with heart-pounding action and toe-curling heat. Set in the heart of Louisiana's swamps, the steamy love story pairs up a bioengineered killer with a physically and psychically augmented super soldier. The evil Dr. Whitney experiments on infant girls, enhancing and training them to be perfect spies and assassins. When one of his success stories, Bellisia, goes on an assignment that brings her up against an adversary of the enhanced soldiers known as the Ghostwalkers, her protective instincts kick in and she decides to save them all. Darkly brooding and rather bossy Zeke, one of the soldiers, will also do anything to guard those he calls family, something that utterly captivates the orphaned Bella. The detailed, engrossing narrative is coupled with an in-depth look at the community being created in the bayou, but too much emphasis on past events and distracting repetition bog down an otherwise exceptional novel.
