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.

    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

    "Magic everywhere"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Eve Bianco?

    Yes, I love Christine Feehan's books. I love the book version over the audiobook because sometime the voice doesn't match the image I have of the characters.


    What other book might you compare Magic in the Wind to and why?

    Practical Magic. It is very whimsical and I love the way the sisters work and love each other.


    Which character – as performed by Eve Bianco – was your favorite?

    Sarah of course. She is the magic that starts the series and she's the guiding light to the family.


    Could you see Magic in the Wind being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, but it is always hard to get the right actress because of contracts and other behind the scenes events that affect the results of a movie. I can see Elizabeth Perkins type for Sarah.

    "A magical fluff novel for pure enjoyment"
    What did you love best about Magic in the Wind?

    Good story and magical additions.


    If you???ve listened to books by Christine Feehan before, how does this one compare?

    This author produces enjoyable novels but not a lot of thought provoking after thought.


    What does Eve Bianco bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Almost always better to listen to a book then to read it. You can do other things while listening but not while reading.

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

    I wanted to read this book because I enjoyed the rest of the Drake sisters stories. I'm glad now that I didn't read this book first (even though it was first chronologically) because it was definitely the least interesting of the series. I might have never read the rest of the books if I based my experience off this one.


    Has Magic in the Wind turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I was disappointed.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I think the plot was just weak compared to others in the series.
