Samurai Game (Ghostwalkers #10) by Christine Feehan

In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it’s her job to fulfill them. But she’s playing a far more dangerous game—one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense.

But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players—a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge. Both expendable. Both with nothing left to lose.

. . .

I love it when a set of new releases features books in all corners of genre fiction. We’ve got a Peter-Pan flavored tale (Tiger Lily); an urban fantasy featuring whales (Just Breathe); a contemporary fiction cautionary tale set in Hollywood (The Next Best Thing); multiple steampunk stories; and a pie-centric paranormal cozy mystery (Off the Menu, which sounds yummy!). And that’s not even the half of it. No matter the reading mood, there should be at least one thing that’ll pique your interest this week.

One thing that caught my eye was something related to Just Breathe. The author is apparently donating all profits from the sales of the Just Breathe trilogy to educational programs focusing on whales. I’ve seen this done before (I know Mina Khan’s book A Tale of Two Djinns supports UNICEF), and I must admit that I love it when books support a cause! (Particularly when the book in question actually features that topic/cause prominently in its story.) Makes me even more excited to support the author in their other works.  But it makes me curious as to your thoughts on such: what do you think of instances in which a sizable portion a book’s sales proceeds are given to charity? Does it make you more inclined to buy the book if it’s for a cause you support?)


Any new releases you’ve been eagerly waiting on? Any pleasant surprises? What kind of a reading mood do you find yourself at this very moment?

    If I could only get all of these books, then I’d be happy 😉

    • Alisha July 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

      Hehe… I feel ya. “I’ll take that half of the menu, please” ^_^

  • Arianne July 3, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    There are some really sexy covers i there 😀

      I noticed a high percentage of abs and cleavage this month.

        Guess they’re doing their part to promote staying cool in summertime. lol

        Dude! So I left many books off the list of course, but I really wanted to give you a heads up on one of them: This Dark Earth by John Hornor Jacobs. Gritty, intense zombie post-apoc horror story with an Ender Wiggen-esque protagonist. Sounds like a good time. Not very bright and summery, but we don’t care around here. ^_^

    • Alisha July 6, 2012 at 10:30 am

      Seriously. That’s actually why the ones that didn’t have that factor stood out this week. CIP: My Lady Mage and Just Breathe.

  • Diane July 4, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Too many choices though I will get Samurai Game for sure.

    • Alisha July 6, 2012 at 10:16 am

      Rock on. Have you read all the series up to this point? If so, how do you feel about it’s longevity so far? The later stories still have strong material?

  • aurian July 4, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    I want half of those books! And as soon as Samurai Game drops on my doormat, I will devour it! My best friend got her copy last monday, and she is several books behind so doesn’t read it asap. And we only live 5 minutes apart, which is totally unfair.
    My reading mood is paranormal today.

    • Alisha July 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

      Awesome. Really inttrigued by this book. The book description is so vague…more deets! I take it you’ve read up to this point in the Ghost Walkers series, then. How do you like it these days, now that it’s officially crossed into double-digit installments? Still fresh?

  • Tamsyn July 7, 2012 at 1:40 am

    Great set of books! Would love to read them all, if I can find the time! :o)
    Especially Britt Bury’s The Darkest Day.
