Magic in the Wind: Drake Sisters, Book 1 | [Christine Feehan]

Magic in the Wind: Drake Sisters, Book 1

Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuge in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town. Even the wind seems to whisper her name - a reverie so powerfully suggestive that it carries the curious Damon to Sarah's cliff top home, and seeks to shelter him there. But Damon has not arrived alone. Two men have tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House, where Sarah hides her own secrets.

Publisher's Summary

A Drake Sisters Story praised for her blend of "action, suspense, and . . . erotically charged romance" (Booklist), New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan presents the story of Sarah, the eldest of the extraordinary - and magical - Drake sisters."Sarah's come home." Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuge in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town. Even the wind seems to whisper her name - a reverie so powerfully suggestive that it carries the curious Damon to Sarah's cliff top home, and seeks to shelter him there. But Damon has not arrived alone. Two men have tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House, where Sarah hides her own secrets. And danger - as well as a desire more urgent than either has ever known - is just a whisper away . . .

    "Good Choice for Narrator"

    I really like the Drake Sisters series by Christine Feehan. This story (about eldest sister Sarah Drake) is a good first entry for the series.

    It is a bit short, but I believe it (and the second entry featuring Kate Drake) were originally novellas inside anthologies. Plus "Magic in the Wind" costs less than most audiobooks, so that all evens out.

    The narrator has a good voice for the narration of Sarah's story. She sounds young and somewhat sweet. That may seem a contradiction when you realize that Sarah is a security expert (supposedly versed in weapons and trained to fight), but the entire tenor of the series hangs on the idea that the Drakes are really kind young women (no matter the flashy careers or flamboyant personas shown to the world). They are the girls next door (who are actually the witches next door, but still the kind of girl your mom wants you to bring home).

    It was not a syrupy-sweet reading, please do not mistake me. But it was just as I'd expect Sarah to sound.

    This is a refreshing book in that the main male lead doesn't leap in to "save" the woman (even though she is much better trained and better suited to the role than he is). When this couple appears in later issues of this series they seem to be true partners. That is especially refreshing for a Feehan novel.

    She has a bad tendancy to make ALL male leads so alpha as to be in serious need of a smack in the head with a heavy object. I like a good alpha hero as much as the next woman, but come ON. Some of her Dark Series "heroes" would end up dead if the heroines were like REAL women.

    "So shallow - thought it was abridged"

    Sorry, I wanted to like this book. Purchased on sale just for a fun listen. It was so shallow and poorly developed that I thought it was a bad abridgement. The characters are empty, the story is predictable, the dialogue is sometimes painful. It was a good concept and there a few good elements of supernatural in it but it fell flat for me. I will say narrator is good.

    "Start of a great series"
    What did you love best about Magic in the Wind?

    If you haven’t met the Drake sisters, this a the first book you'll want to read. Don't be concerned if you can't keep the sisters straight because you will get a chance to know each sister as the series continues. Lot's of magic and mystical happenings set with characters you will enjoy. Be aware that there is graphic (almost pornographic) sex in some of the later books. This one is pretty tame - especially since it is abridged.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that an unabridged version had been an option.

    "Luv luv luved it"

    I think this is another great story line from the uncomperable Ms Feehan. I have listened to the carpathians, then the ghostwalker series and am excited to now listen the Drake sisters. Blessings to you Ms Feehan.

    "Cheesy."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was ok. Probably would have benefited from being longer and having some kind of plot.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, enjoyed very much! Good story line where you know that the story line will continue.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Magic in the Wind?

    Sarah's coming home!


    What does Eve Bianco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I did not want to stop listening to the book and I had to buy part 2 of the series!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    Story
    "Needs another narrator"
    What did you like best about Magic in the Wind? What did you like least?

    Like the mystic but the narrator killed a lot of the story.. Not upbeat, voice changes lack and stressing of scenes (dramatic or intimate) ugghhhh


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Why the sisters were called back to the house and the 7th sister to have seven girls.. Wow!! I feel for the father..


    What didn’t you like about Eve Bianco’s performance?

    I am sorry I know we all have to make a living. I probably would get a bad rating for reading too. But Eve needs to stepit up..


    Did Magic in the Wind inspire you to do anything?

    Nope
