Saber Wynter is running from her past when she meets ex-Navy SEAL and Ghostwalker Jess Calhoun. But the riddles of both their pasts are about to collide, shattering the promise of their future with the ultimate betrayal.

My rating:

Since escaping from Dr. Whitney's terrifying lab, Saber Wynter's been on the run. She finally found a haven with Jess Calhoun, but is she really safe there and is Jess really what he appears to be?

After losing use of his legs during a special op gone bad, Jess has continued his highly classified GhostWalker work. His friendship with Saber quickly grows into something deeper, yet with both their shielding abilities, they don't realize each other's enhancements.

When Saber slips, projecting her thoughts into his mind, Jess begins to wonder who she is and what she really is doing with him. Was she sent there to spy on him and kill him? Was their chance encounter truly a coincidence or are enemies conspiring behind their backs to kill them both?

I've been a die-hard fan of the GhostWalker Series since the very beginning and it is with deep regret for me to say, this book was the worst of the bunch.

At the beginning the plot was so slow and boring, really, I barely skimmed the pages to get to the more important parts. And although I liked the camaraderie and banter between Jess and Saber, and the chemistry between them was obvious, my heart just wasn't in it.

I don't know, exactly. Maybe it was because the whole book was so slow, maybe it was because of the veiled hypocrisy of the other GhostWalkers toward Saber, maybe it was because of the absurd stalker/observer ploy, but I just couldn't commit to the reading as I usually do.

Despite the fact it was the worst in the series, this book still delved a little deeper into the world of the GhostWalkers and their evil-genius creator, so it was still a worth-while read, but definitely not a keeper.
