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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "True art."

    Christine Feehan is a true artist. The story was beautifully thought out and presented with a little touch of mystery, suspense, action, drama and magic thrown in.

    The narrator did an excellent job, she mastered the personality of each individual through the varied inflection in her voice.
    It was a perfect blending of the story and it's presentation.

    Worth listening to and repeat, especially after reading the more recent Sea Haven novels with the various elements.

    Explore and enjoy!!!

    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.
