There were things I loved about this book, but it was a bit of a slow read. I think it's because I started reading Feehan with her Ghostwalkers, and I got used to the near constant adrenaline rush of those stories. One good thing about this book and the Drake sister series is the focus is really on the heroine. So if you like strong, heroine-oriented romances, you should read these books.

I like the idea of a family of sisters who are bound together by intense love and loyalty. I loved the scenes

Abigail "Abbey" Drake, the third in the series of seven sisters, after a tragic incident four years ago, doesn't trust her magic anymore. The traumatic experience has turned her into a loner, and she spends most her time with her sisters and even more swimming with dolphins.

One evening, after returning from one such swim, she witnesses a murder, resulting in her being briefly held at gunpoint, staring into deep blue eyes she left behind four years ago.

Christine Feehan writes a very compelling story with "Oceans of Fire". Once again, the sexual content was not of interest to me. I felt she overdid it in this novel and was filling pages rather than concentrating more on the mystery and drama between Abigail and her Russian heartthrob. A little goes a long way and would have been more appealing.
However, aside from that, I was a bit frustrated with Abby's resistance to Volstov considering all she had to do was test him for the truth. She was over

17/10 - I came across a website called smartbitchestrashybooks who had given Feehan a bad review for another of her books (from a different series), complaining that they all followed the same formula story and romance-wise. Oceans of Fire did seem to follow a similar pattern to the books the reviewer mentioned, it even had the sex scene she claimed was in every one of Feehan's books that she'd read. Despite this continuation of the theme I enjoyed the story, especially the use of magic and the ...more

Terceiro livro da saga "Irmãs Drake", conta a historia de Abigail Drake.

Este foi um pouco mais aborrecido que os anteriores livros da "saga". A acção foi lenta no desenrolar dos acontecimentos e a historia propriamente dita segue mais uma linha "policial" mas não muito marcada.

This is the second book from Feehan that I have attempted to read but failed to complete because I just couldn’t make myself do it.

Admittedly, it may be unfair to make judgments about an author's body of work based on only two of her books. However, as I see it, the experience I had with 100% of the Feehan books that I read can be described as mind-numbing. The two books I read were from two different Feehan series (Drake Sisters and Carpathians). Feehan doesn't seem to be able to develop her ch

Neste terceiro livro da série Drake Sisters - Oceanos de Fogo - Christine Feehan leva-nos a conhecer melhor Abigail Drake, uma das sete irmãs Drake que reúnem entre si poderes mágicos muito variados.
Bióloga marinha de profissão, Abigail apenas se sente realmente em paz no mar, entre os seus alvos de estudo preferidos: os golfinhos; especialmente, desde que as sua principal capacidade mágica, a evocação da verdade, lhe colocou sobre os ombros a responsabilidade pela morte de um inocente e destru

Who, you may wonder, is the reigning queen of paranormal romance? Why it’s none other than Christian Feehan, a pleasantly plump mother of 11 with a 3rd degree black belt in Korean Karate. That little bit of background makes this book all the more funny. This, like all romances, is formulaic. There is a girl and a guy, who love each other, but don’t want to or are held apart by some conflict, fall into lusty sex anyway, realize that good sex/ true love, is the most important thing in the world (t ...more

For this once, I am giving four stars to this third volume of the Drake Sisters Saga. Why? I still believe it is a stereotyped way of writing and forming characters, but the whole book has a better plot and the "intrigue" is anything but boring. All the sex is, as usually, anything but subtle, and maybe that is why I usually do not rate it so high. This third volume also brings to the forefront more characters, as the reader starts to get to know better not only all the seven sisters, but their ...more

Oceans of Fire is the third book of the Drake Sister series from Christine Feehan. It is accompanies the Sisters of the Heart series in the Sea Haven series. It isn’t necessary to read the first two books to follow and enjoy Oceans of Fire, but for a more complete story I prefer to have read them and would suggest that you do as well. The Protagonists in Oceans of Fire are Abigail Drake and Aleksandr Volstov. The book opens with Abigail swimming with dolphins, where she feels the most comfortabl ...more

I really enjoyed this story and how it slowly told the story of Abbey's past and how it affected the whole family. Lovely storytelling and couldn't put it down!

This is the third in the Drake Sisters series. This story is about Abigail. She studies dolphins. On a trip to Russia four years ago she met Aleksandr. They fell in love right away. He was a after a child killer and he needed help on his case. Abigail can use her voice to get the truth from people. She helped him, a suspect killed himself and she was taken into custody by a bad man that did not like Aleksandr. Once he realized that she was taken, he found her and had her released but two days ha ...more

This is the first book in the Drake sister series that I read. It was incredible enough to motivate me to look up the rest of the series. This one poignantly portrayed a woman's reaction to betrayal that, amazingly, didn't diminish her love. Abbey believed that Aleksandr, an Interpol agent, left her to be tortured at the hands of corrupted Russian agents. What she didn't know was that he was working tirelessly behind the scene to get her out as fast as he could. The part that broke my heart was ...more

I love the Drake Sisters.

My main thought with finishing it was.... what just happened? I found myself more interested in what happened to Ilya, the Russian guy with "powers".

There were too many characters to try to follow, although the Aunt was funny and quirky - but the whole scrap booking thing was annoying. The middle was weak, and if you hadn't read the other two books it was hard to figure out what was going on. The main character was too much of a pushover to really appeal to me, but she had possibilities I wish h

Christine Feehan’s Oceans of Fire is the 3rd book in her Drake Sisters series. It focuses on Abigail Drake and her romance with Russian spy Alexandr. All the Drake women have cool powers, and Abigail is no exception: she can force people to speak the truth and know when they’re lying. In fact, she used that skill to help Alexandr in the past. But it ended in disaster and split them apart, until their paths crossed again in Sea Haven.

Not only can Abigail work her truth-mojo, she can

Up until now, the Drake Sisters series has been a fairly light-hearted, sweet set of romances. Yes, Sarah and Kate both faced some potentially serious situations, but in neither case did the danger really feel all that imminent and real as the overall tone was cheerful and light. That changes with this book, and suddenly the danger to the sisters and those around them indeed feels quite real and serious. And the tone of serious danger is there pretty much from the start, when Abigail witnesses a ...more

This is the third book of the Drake sisters series though I'm sure that anyone reading this review already knows that!

I had read this book a few years ago but since I am making my way back through the series I've reached this one again.

I have vague memories of remembering that I found this book the hardest to get through all those years ago but I couldnt exactly remember why until I did finish it again.

I like the sister's relationship together and how they do their best to protect Abbey and I ce

Half way through this book I was dead set on giving it 4 stars. Why? Because the gun toting mafia rubbish is absolutely no interest to me, and certain scenes in the first half left me skipping pages. By the end though, I couldn't justify letting this book loose a star - I simply enjoyed it too much.

The story itself had definite flaws. I didn't enjoy reading about Abby as I did the other two sisters so far. Her emotions were scattered and I don't think Feehan did a great job of explaining why. I

I'm really struggling to get through this book. The other Drake sisters books that I've read have been quick and easy to get through because they were engrossing and I was swept away into romance and intrigue. But I feel like I'm slogging through way too much redundant dialogue, i.e. in conversations between the sisters, they often repeat the same thought multiple times making their exchanges WAY too long and wordy. The problem might be that, as this is the first full novel-length Drake sister s ...more

I’ve never hidden the fact that of all the Drake sisters Abbie is my least favourite; a fact that has made doing this re-read and review interesting. Possibly it was because I did this re-read in audiobook format but this time around she was less annoying than I remembered. Abbie still comes across as spoiled and very much views the world as me, me, me, I, I, I but it tones down to an almost bearable level.

Aleksandr is an interesting character. Trained at a very young age to become an operative

This is a Paranormal Romance Novel and compared to others I've read in this genre it is a pretty typical storyline. But it is a solid series with well written characters and good stories. Abigail (Abby) Drake is one of seven sisters, all of whom have elemental magic. Alexsandr (Sasha) Volstov is a Interpol Agent and also an old flame of Abby's. I like that the other sisters still play a good part in other books that they aren't a main character in. I enjoy being able to read more about character ...more

While not a 'knock my socks off' book, I thoroughly enjoyed this, reading it in little more than a day. I've found I really like the Drake Sisters books. All seven sisters are lovely and that mix of family warmth and magic is, for lack of a better word, magical. Their men are fairly typical of Feehan's heroes - strong, demanding and a little dark - but they are not nearly as alpha as her Carpathians, who seemed to have gone a little over the top even for them lately.

There was a bit of the "just

I read this out of order, after book 6 and it helped set the stage for Jolie's story. Book 3 introduces the Russian mafia to the Drake sisters. Even in a powerfully magical family egos, and personalities can cause self doubt. A marine biologist and human lie detector, Abi thinks of herself as a weak link. Not able to heal, or voice, her talent of forcing others to speak the truth has had serious repercussions in childhood and especially teenage years. Abi was almost shunned by her peers.

Libby and Tyson - the story of the middle sister and the healer. Feehan keeps the action going with near death for several of the characters - even bringing me to tears at one point. The chemistry is good but not as good as the other books. Unfortunately for me I figured out the bad guy early in the book and every time she threw in something as a diversion - I could see it as such. I enjoyed the book and would read it again but not quite as good as the first three.
Julia Brumfield
I really do like Christine Feehan as an author but this apparently wasn't one of her best books. The story in some cases seemed to take long and was more or less repetitive in its own way while there seemed to be just one actually really good adventure scene in it.

Another thing that concerned me about this book is with the plot. If you know the "prophecy" of the Drake sisters that they are to fall in love one after another, from oldest to youngest. If you go based along with this book Abigail an
