Book & Audio Review: Magic in the Wind by Christine Feehan

Magic in the Wind

Christine Feehan
Narrator: Eve Bianco
Series: Drake Sisters (Book 1)
Publication: Penguin Audio (August 24, 2009); Berkley (September 27, 2005)
Length: 4 hours and 3 minutes; 112 p.

Description: Explore the magic of Sea Haven with the story of Sarah—the eldest of the extraordinary Drake sisters—now rewritten and expanded.

"Sarah Drake has 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 clifftop home, and seeks to shelter him there.

But Damon has not arrived alone. A killer has tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House. But Sarah has her own secrets, and danger—as well as a desire more urgent than either has ever known—is just a whisper away...

My Thoughts: This short novel/novella begins the Drake sisters series. There are seven Drake sisters every generation and they all have interesting psychic gifts. Sarah is the oldest. She has precognition and works as a bodyguard. Her latest assignment is to keep scientist Damon Wilder alive.

Damon doesn't know why he came to Sea Haven. Something about the place appealed to him when he retired from his secret government job and needed to recover from the torture he suffered when he was kidnapped by villains who wanted his latest discovery.

When they meet, they are almost instantly attracted even while Damon hates the idea that he needs a bodyguard and hates putting anyone else in danger. Bur Sarah knows that Damon's arrival has triggered a long-standing prophecy - if she can keep him alive.

The kidnappers are on Damon's trail and Sarah enlists some of the residents of the quirky seaside town to help her find them. She also has the help of three of her sisters who arrive soon after Sarah does. 

I liked the magic and I really liked the relationship between Damon and Sarah. The story was well narrated by Eve Bianco who managed both the pacing and the characterizations very well. 

Favorite Quote:
Her eyes saw too much, saw into him where he didn't want to be seen, where he couldn't afford to be seen. He wanted to look away but couldn't seem to pull his gaze from hers. 
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
