I have read many many Christine Feehan books. I have my favorites and this is not one of them. While I enjoyed Azami and her character is well fleshed out, parts of how she feels about herself are bogged down and slow the story flow. Her feeling of inadequacy over being Thorne, her self image due to her scars aren't just brought up once, or twice, but constantly in her relationship with Sam. And it isn't just her thoughts and talking to Sam, it's in the bedroom scenes. Believe me, as a reader I understood Azami had problems with her self image. I don't have to hear it again and again to make it sink in.
Then there's Sam this brilliant man. .. Yet in this story I don't see any sources of his brilliance. Not in planning or carrying out the mission, not in his courtship, not in the way he acts. All he's focused on is getting home and having relations with Azami.
I would have liked more follow up on Azami's relationship/more interaction with her brothers. More than this little two paragraphs in meeting up with Saber. Saber was a childhood 'friend' - You'd think after what they'd gone through they'd interact more.
About 3/4 through the book suddenly I'm given names and descriptions of the Ghostwalkers. Like a who's who interupting the story flow. It was just odd although the bar/hurricane/gater story was cute. . .. And what happened to selling the satellites to the Ghostwalkers? That was why Amazi and her brothers came to the compound. What happened to following up the story line with a conclusion?
Good bones, but I feel this story could have been written a lot better. To me it looks like Feehan was making a deadline and just putting it together without a lot of thought. While I did read the whole book, skipping through the pages and pages of bedroom scenes. .. Overall I was disappointed.

4 1/2 stars
Samurai Game is the tenth in the Ghost Walker series. This book can be easily read by itself but many characters from previous books revisit which make reading the prior books helpful and add to the story.
In this exciting installment, Japanese businesswoman Azami 'Thorn' Yoshiie is on a mission of revenge against the man who `created' and tortured her. Taken and brutally experimented on by the nefarious Dr. Whitney, Azami was termed a throwaway because she did not manifest paranormal powers like the rest of the children in his lab. But she secretly hid her powers from him. Fortunately, when he left her for dead she was rescued by a powerful and honorable Japanese businessman. From her adopted father, she learned the ways of the samurai and plotted her vengeance against, Dr. Whitney. A man without morals or conscience. As she seeks to undermine Dr. Whitney's power base she runs into the elite Ghostwalker soldiers. Men who have also been enhanced and have special abilities.
Azami decides she must discover if the Ghostwalkers are in league with Dr. Whitney and enters their stronghold in disguise only to be attacked. There she finds the amazing Ghostwalker, Sam Johnson. A man who instantly realizes that there is something different about her and their attraction is immediate. As they fight to stay alive they form an unlikely and unbeatable team. But someone else wants Sam and Azami has dark secrets of her own. Can they work together and prevent Dr. Whitney's bid for power or are they one too many steps behind?
Readers of this series or any of Christine Feehan's books will definitely be satisfied with Samurai Game. Although not my favorite in the series, the strong characterization and emotional highs and lows make this a non-stop read. Azami is an incredible heroine. She is strong and independent. She feels she must look after and control everything. But this control is fragile and as she gets closer to confronting her demons she realizes how she needs a strong shoulder to lean on sometimes. The torture and abuse she endured would kill the sprit of most characters. I was constantly awed by her resilience and fortitude plus she has some pretty wickedly cool ninja skills! Sam is also a sympathetic character, while all of his teammates have slowly found their mates, he has been resigned to being alone. Not exactly content but `okay' with having his job be his purpose in life. But Azami changes all that and to keep her by his side this loyal soldier will even defy his leader. The plot also carries the story as Whitney and another powerful female bid for power and their lackeys are dying like flies. Plus the Ghostwalkers and Azami look for the traitor in their mist things only heat up more. However, the author leaves plenty of room for more suspense in her next book...I can't wait!
Strong, spellbinding writing will keep you on the edge of your seat.
