Review 'Spider Game' by Christine Feehan


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26368903-spider-game
In the new GhostWalker novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author of 'Viper Game', a trained killer meets his match in a woman whose very kiss can stop a heart.

The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

My Review:


In the last couple of years I’ve read several books written by Christine Feehan. I’ve read a view books from her Leopard People series, from her Dark series and ‘Spider Game’ is the second book I read in her Ghostwalker series. Christine Feehan’s books are a perfect read when you’re looking for something fun, sexy and not to complicated. And these book covers by Piatkus are just gorgeous. So when I was having a busy week and was in real need for something ‘fun’ and not too complicated to read.. I started reading ‘Spider Game’.

In ‘Spider Game’ we meet Trap Dawkins. Trap is one of the smartest people alive, but he is also very ‘cold’ and on edge. Although Trap is a part of the Ghostwalkers, and he sees his teammates as his friends, he always kept a distance. Nobody really knew why, except for the fact that something terrible most have happened to Trap long ago.
When Trap was on a mission and found a young woman who has been kept a prisoner for all her life, he instantly felt something he never felt before. And after he helped her escape, he knew for sure.. this woman was his.

Trap was a fascinating character to read about. I didn’t like him at times, but I also loved him on other moments. Especially the moments when he tried to get closer to Cayenne. On these moments he was sweet, caring and very romantic. But at times he was just so arrogant and bossy that I wanted to stop reading.
Cayenne was definitely my favorite character in this book. She was held prisoner for all her life so when she came into the real world she was overwhelmed and really scared. Everything Cayenne knew was from the internet sites she visited or from the stories she read. The scariest thing for Cayenne was the attraction she felt for Trap. And she just couldn’t stay away from him.
I loved Cayenne. Not only because she was really tough and definitely a good and lethal worrier, but also because she wanted to take care of the man she loved. She tried cooking for him and although it was a disaster at times she kept trying. Loved that.

This book was definitely a fun read but I did have some troubles with it. For one, this book seemed to start in the middle of the story. I really felt like I was missing some stuff in the beginning. And since I also read the book that came out before this one, I know I’m not really missing anything but this was just the way the book started. A little confusing if you ask me.
The other thing was the way Trap acted at times for no apparent reason. He was just mean, arrogant and very bossy. If I hate one thing its arrogant man.. So I really had to try and get over that part of his character.

Overall this book was another fun read. It was sexy, interesting, at times a little weird but definitely a fun book to get lost in. If you’re a fan of paranormal and sexy stories. This series is definitely one for you.
