Oceans of Fire is the 3rd book in the enchanting Drake Sisters Series written by one of my most favorite PNR authors, Christine Feehan.

From the moment I read the first paragraph – I was hooked!!

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.

Oceans of Fire, book 3 in Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series, is about Abigail Drake and Alexsandr Volstov.

Quem ainda não se rendeu à magia da irmãs Drake? Se ainda não são fãs, ao lerem o terceiro volume da saga, "Oceanos de Fogo", tenho a certeza que se apaixonarão!
Depois de Sarah e Kate, é a vez de Abigail completar a sua parte na profecia centenária que assombra todas as sete filhas da sétima filha da família Drake.
Abbey, como é carinhosamente chamada, é atormentada pela seu dom, o dom da verdade. Sempre que pronuncia a dita palavra, os ouvintes são impelidos a confessarem todos os seus segredos.

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

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.

ler opinião completa:
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
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

Recommends it for: Everyone.
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

She also has the power to make people tell the truth, something that she hates. However she does enjoy the dolphins and loves to study them all over the world. This research takes her to Russia in which she finds herself falling in love with Aleksandr Volstov who is an agent. He ends up using Abigail for her gifts, and leaves her th ...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

This is Abigail book who studies sea life mostly dolphins in this story. Abbie has a dark secret that none of sister know but can feel something's wrong. It isn't till Aleksandr Volstov shows up saying he is Abigail fiancé. This book is a lot darker then the others in series. I like that CF has made it darker and more dangerous but also shown there's more to Jonas and Jackson then first shown.
Looking forward to Joley and Hannah's story.

Me gustó más que la dos, pero menos que la uno.

Tuvo mucha más acción que cualquiera de las otras dos, y no menos emotiva, pero tiene demasiados personajes pululando de aquí para allá y de allá para acá y al menos los dos novios de las otras hermanas no aparecieron más que en menciones quizá en dos renglones y pues... bueno, una les toma cariño a los personajes y no verlos ahí en las historias, no me agrada.

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

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.

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
