Magic In The Wind by Christine Feehan

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Drake Sisters # 1
Copyright: 2003
Pages: 103

"Sarah's coming 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 clifftop 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... book cover

I must admit I had concerns that this little book, at only 103 pages would fail to deliver but Magic in the Wind packs a powerful punch! The story really does live up to its title, a magical tale, beautifully written. Suspense, romance and mysticism; what more could you want? Hmm ... more pages.

This is the story of Sarah, the eldest of the extraordinary Drake sisters. There are seven sisters in the Drake family, each gifted with magical powers; Sarah, Kate, Abigail, Libby, Hannah, Joley, and Elle. It is also a story of love and tolerance, not only between the sisters but also the quirky residents of Sea Haven. A wonderful combination, love and magic but the whole 'prophecy' had me hooked from the start.

Sarah is such a fascinating character as is her love interest, Damon Wilder, that they deserved their own, full sized novel. This one did leave me wanting more, but I still really enjoyed reading it and at least I have the rest of the series to look forward to -

The Twilight Before Christmas
Oceans of Fire
Dangerous Tides
Safe Harbor
Turbulent Sea
Hidden Currents (coming June 30, 2009)

Captivating & enchanting, I think I'm going to fall in love with this series.

Christine Feehan has ten sisters & three brothers and couldn't resist writing a book about the magic of sisters.

  1. I keep seeing The Drake series books but wasn't sure which one was the first one. I shall definitely add this to my pile. I get the feeling it has a little bit of Charmed in it.

  2. That is short, but I am glad it delivers. I think I mostly curious on how it does just that when it's so short,lol

  3. I actually brought this exact book with me this summer. I'll have to hit this one soon!

  4. I have only ever read her Dark books. I need to check out the Drake sisters.
