Stunted Narrative, Save your money
Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2020
I should have known what I was in for in reading her last few books of the GhostWalker Series, and not particularly liking this new writing style, character development, and plotline. This book is just an excuse to give 2 characters their happy ending- save your money- you are not missing a thing by not reading this book. If you really want to know what happens in this story than simply scroll down because some people just give it away in their reviews.
At this point, the GhostWalker Series is a stunted narrative of emotionally distant people colliding in a story that desperately wants to be urgent but is so predictable and unnecessary it reads as an abrupt collision: "Here he is and there she is and wow she is so pretty and Oh, by the way, this is this person and here's the plot of what happened to them and I love you and DANGER and who is this and let me tell you more about them and DANGER and do you still care? let me tell you why you should care and look it's all good now."
The books up to Murder Game and maybe one or two that followed that book were really well written and an emotional rollercoaster, but this book and even the last book were terrible. There is no chance to get invested in these characters because the writing style in comparison with her earlier books is so stunted, abrupt, observational and just a mess. Because of this, the story, the character and the reader all suffer together in this repetitive narrative that is boring and predictable. Where the reader can get invested in the story, it did not happen here for me on any level and in reading her earlier books and then responding to this one, it feels like the Ghostwalker Series has a Ghostwriter whose heart is not in it and it reflects on the page.
