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.

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.

Magic in the Wind

This was an enjoyable story. My only complaint is that it is too short & doesn't develop the characters as well as in her longer books.

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.

Can’t bring myself to finish it

I don’t usually write bad reviews unless I’m actually mad about something, and knowing that I paid money for this audio book really made me angry! The story is something I would have enjoyed when I was 13 years old sneaking drug store romance novels into the house. It’s just so bad! It’s like the outline for a good book plot but no one ever wrote the content. One minute the girl is saying she’d never fall in love, but 5 minutes later she’s spending the night with the guy. Way to stick to your guns there lady! And the dialog is so bland and lovey-dovy I kept having to turn it off. I finally just couldn’t go on. It’s like what a middle school girl thinks romance is like... no action, no distraction, no disagreements, no barriers whatsoever. Just flowery words and instant chemistry.

That’s it, I am not spending another minute thinking about this book... moving on to, hopefully, better stories!
