Not all series have that. Not all series can keep a smooth transition and introduce new characters in a way that the reader has time to develop feelings about them or they are thrown into the picture and you are flipping through earlier books wondering who this person is. When that happens, it feels disjointed and it takes time to fall back into step with the series.
In talking about series, the Ghostwalkers has a definite point where it breaks off from the smooth transitions from book to book. That point is the 8th book in the series - Street Game. In this book, we are abruptly introduced to a whole new set of characters and it is jarring. Don't get me wring, I still love the series and will continue to read it again and again because of the world Christine Feehan has created and I simply have to be there when Peter Whitney is found and finally gets what's coming to him!
Here is my review of
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Street Game is the the 8th book in the Ghostwalkers series and the reason for the 3 stars instead of 4 like I gave the previous books is because the series takes a jump here and goes from the the characters in the first Ghostwalker Team to a new set of characters (Ghostwalker team 3) that haven't been in the series at all until now so it feels a bit disjointed from the rest and I had to become invested in them and their story much more than I had to in previous books. The plot is fine, but that blip in the arc of the series really throws me.
Mac and Jaimie are solid characters. I like that Jaimie is a different kind of Ghostwalker, not at all a warrior like many of the women at times seem to be. She is more wary of their powers and enhancements and chooses to fight not with weapons, but with her brain- and is just as capable.
I still enjoy the series, but I wish the transition into this new group of characters was handled smoother like when the Nortons came into the picture as part of the second Ghostwalkers team in earlier books.
A good book, worth the read for sure!
