This series has a little of everything - Action and Danger, Psychic abilities and a lot of Hot Romance...... At the end of Shadow Game Lily and the GhostWalkers were determined to find the other children that Lily's father Dr Whitney had experimented on to enhance their psychic abilities. Dahlia is the first of those children that she has managed to track down but after looking at recordings of her training it seems she has a dangerous ability. Nicolas is sent to find her and let her know that they can help her to live a normal life but when he gets to her he finds she has become the target of deadly assassins. He manages to save her from their first attack but her friend has been taken hostage and Dahlia is determined to save him. She is going to need the help of Nicolas and the other GhostWalkers to rescue her friend and find out who is behind the plot to take her life.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and Mind Game didn't disappoint. I find the idea of an experiment to increase psychic abilities really interesting and love finding out about the different powers that the GhostWalkers have. Dahlia has a very unusual and dangerous talent which allows her to do amazing things but it comes at a very high cost to her. Constantly absorbing energy from her surroundings and the feelings of others she is easily overwhelmed and when that happens things become explosive, with Dahlia often setting fire to anything around her. Unable to control her powers she is a danger to anyone around her but Nicolas is willing to take the risk to be with her.
Dahlia has been through a lot since she was experimented on as a child, she has had no one she could rely on and has never allowed anyone to get close to her. Her dream of having a family has always seemed an unrealistic one and she has been forced to spend most of her time alone to avoid the affect that other people's emotions have on her. Nicolas is the most cold and aloof of the GhostWalkers but Dahlia breaks down his barriers and allows his passionate side to come to the front. It takes a while for Dahlia to allow Nicolas in but it's well worth the wait and the heat between them is literally explosive!
I enjoyed seeing more of the camaraderie between the GhostWalkers and it was sweet watching them welcome Dahlia into their family. We've been introduced to some more interesting characters who I'm hoping we'll see more of in future books and I'm looking forward to finding out more about the individual GhostWalkers psychic abilities. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!

wanted to laugh, and relax after sooo...much sex
Any additional comments?
sex took away some of the underlying story it seems as though he was filling the pages with sex instead of making it a really special

I'm a dark reader and although I've "meant" to read Christine Feehan's other series.
This is my first actual read. So glad I did.
I know this is the second book in the series but I'm as hooked on this as the Dark series.
loved the a
story. the only thing that was irritating was the voice for Lily. Tom makes her sound in "small/scared " instead of a strong independent woman.other than that it was great. thank you
Where does Mind Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was great, I really liked books 1, 2 & 3, I've listened to about 7 of them now, I'm by no means a prude in any sense to explicit sex scenes but the long relentless sex scenes do become quite boring and there are SO many of them it's crazy. I thought they were necessary due to the plot but after 7 books now they are not relevant anymore, we get it. If you're after an x rated marathon then these books are for you. The thing is though the storyline in-between them is excellent. Bring all the characters together for a few cracking books, that's what I've been waiting for but gave up. I personally wanted to see this sooner and who knows it might happen but I'll keep an eye on this series if that day ever comes because it will be awesome.
What other book might you compare Mind Game to, and why?
other Ghostwalker books
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The action/thriller scenes and the well written emotional scenes of scarred people finding themselves again but you can cut 4/5th's of the sex out. It's all the same in every book.
