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

Make no mistake going into this story that you will find sweetness...this book is charge with high intensity of emotions and some subject matters not for the faint of heart...there is murder that heroine witnessed at the very beginning of the book and there is the betrayal of the Hero and what the heroine had to go through during that time...its raw and painful... the struggle the heroine was enduring on the daily basis from the damage caused by his actions was evident and real.

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.

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.

He bent over her, rubbing at what he hoped was a smudge and not a bruise forming between her eyes. She managed to bring up her hand to slap at his arm. He waited until she settled down and went right back to rubbing with the pad of his finger. Small, round caresses. Gentle. Stroking. Telling her with his touch that he wasn’t going anywhere. The faint mark wouldn’t go away. She had pale, almost alabaster skin and he remembered she bruised easily. It was a hell of a way to announce his return, but ...more

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

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

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 ...more

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

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

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.

Okay, so I really liked Sasha, but Abbey was annoying the heck out of me! And it felt a little too drawn out.... this was by far the hardest book of Feehan's to get through, usually I fly through them and can't put them down. this one... not so much. (honestly, I just want to skip to Hannah and Jonas! but I won't; I'm a good girl and will read in order.)

'Oceans of Fire' by Christine Feehan, the third novel in the Drake Sisters series, had a more adventurous plot line then the previous novels. Its mysteries did keep me captivated and with the novel only being 356 pages long it was a quick and easy book to read.
I am finding this series to be good for those who like books with magic involved in it, but its not to heavy and an easy plot to follow.

I think this was the author's first attempt in the series that showed her potential for writing a good story. The first two books were way too short and didn't really set the scene for this series. This book brought a lot more to the table and delivered on what I wanted to see. The storyline was much more easy to follow whereas the first one was just lightweight and the second one hard to understand and imagine what was going on with the fog at times. This one felt a lot more realistic and was ...more

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

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
