Book Description

7 Jun 2005 Drake Sisters Novels (Book 3)

Seven sisters...and a legacy of magical secrets...

As the third daughter in a magical bloodline, Abigail Drake was born with a mystical affinity for water, and possessed a particularly strong bond with dolphins. She spent her entire life studying them, learning from them, and swimming among them in the waters off her hometown of Sea Haven. Until the day Abby witnessed a cold-blooded murder on shore, and found herself fleeing for her life - right into the arms of Aleksandr Volstov. He's an Interpol agent on the trail of stolen Russian antiquities, a relentless man who gets what he goes after - and the man who broke Abby's heart. But he isn't going to let the only woman he ever loved be placed in harm's way - or slip away from his embrace...

4.0 out of 5 stars Next instalment of the Drake Sisters story 1 July 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The third daughter in the magical Drake family, Abigail, has an affinity with things of the sea and travels the world, studying dolphins. Her other stronger magical ability is to have people admit their secrets and she can detect the truth in what they say. This hasn't made her many friends over her lifetime, but it has been the linchpin in her relationship with Alexsandr Volstov, whom she met and loved in Russia 4 years before the opening of this book. Alexsandr is an agent investigating a series of international thefts from Russia, which Abbey senses, is not all he is in America for. And she is right - Alexsandr has long realised that he cannot live without her, and while he hates the danger that Abbey is in when she witnesses a murder at the opening of the tale, he cannot but help take advantage of the opportunity to be with her again.
The novel is filled with magic, sisterhood and a good thumping suspense / adventure. The action scenes are strongly drawn, and I especially enjoyed the catching up with the baddies at the end of the tale. I am a long admirer of Feehan, and especially enjoy her 'Dark' series. So far for me the Drake Sisters have not quite measured up to them, and in these tales Feehan's affinity for the dramatic sometimes leads to over flowery prose. It lacks the vitality of all characters that I've found in the dark series - in the Drake Sisters the focus is on the sisters relationship and that of the central male and female - the men from the previous 2 stories are omitted entirely, although the women are not. I'm also pretty sure that a hardened agent wouldn't speak so openly of his emotions and feelings, nor would the male sheriff be as openly affectionate and forthcoming to the sisters. This is necessary to forward the plot, as mostly it is the two men that have knowledge of the events to carry the story forward. That said, the strong female characters, bonding between the sisters, magic and steamy scenes make up in some way for these niggles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same old, same old! 24 Jun 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been a Christine Feehan fan ever since I read "Dark Prince," the first novel in the "Carpathian" series. Over the last few years, I read every one of those books and found them to be way above average - some are really outstanding. Thus, I was disappointed by the mediocre quality of "Oceans of Fire," the third book in the Drake Sister series. I have not read the first two, nor do I plan to do so now. This one lacks the depth, drama and intensity of Ms. Feehan's "Dark" novels, and while some of the characters are quirky and fun, they lack the complexity and originality I have come to expect from the author's personages. Also, I fear that she is becoming formulaic in her approach to fiction. This is a much lighter work than the Dark novels, but it still has much in common with them, and reminds me a bit of Nora Roberts' "Three Sisters Island Trilogy."
The Drake sisters number seven, and all have unique magical powers. "Oceans of Fire" features sister number three, Abigail Drake, a more introspective young woman than her siblings. She is most at home in the ocean and has always had an affinity for the water, sea life, and dolphins in particular. She has dedicated herself and her work, (a Ph.D. in marine biology), to the study of these small cetaceans. Abigail also has the ability to detect lies. This is her magical gift. She is not comfortable with her special talents, however, and is also quite insecure, partially because she had her heart broken by a Russian Interpol-type, covert agent, Alexsandr Volstov, four years before.
One day, swimming along the coast of her home in Sea Haven, California, Abigail, and her dolphin friends, witness a murder. She attempts to rescue a second man, a friend of hers who is an innocent bystander.
