We return to the magical world of the Drake Sisters

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.

After a tragic incident four years ago that has lost her her love, and her self-esteem, Abigail "Abbey" Drake, the third of the seven Drake sisters doesn't trust her magic any longer. The traumatic experience has turned her into a loner, spending most of 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. ...more

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 (t ...more

It was OK, but it took a lot of patience for me to get through the first part of the book until it warmed up and became OK, it was never actively good and I kind of had to force myself to pick it up and keep going.

What I liked about it; Christine Feehan's writting, I just like her style, her descriptiveness, her obsession with Russian men makes me giggle and the action scenes she weaves around her Russian men are always engrossing. I find her concept of a magical, supportive women's collective t

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.

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

Abby is the third daughter born into the magical Drake bloodline. She uses her special connection with water and dolphins in her work as a marine biologist. Abby travels the world researching and swimming with her dolphins, until her peace is shattered when she witnesses a murder.

While trying to elude the killers, she runs right into the arms of Alexsandr Volstov, a Russian Interpol

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.

Well written! Plus the erotic scenes were written to perfection. I love how the characters were introduced and so were their homelands with such description you could feel their longing for home, but not so much that it was an overload of information.

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

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

Okay, I do not like the turn romance novels have been making lately with the whole obsession of bringing in the entire family as a cast of characters. I want the down and dirty rather than the bs about her sisters and aunt grilling her for information about her love life. There is only one way to describe Abby's family, nosy. It is not sexy or even a good writing form, it's just pointless filler on the author's part!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
Brindi Michele
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.)

Gripping

Abbey and Sasha's story was gripping with all the twists and turns that Christine Feehan writes to keep fans reading and coming back for more. This story has been my favorite of the Drake Sisters so far, and it's only the third book. I look forward to reading more about the magic they wield for truly selfless love of any and everyone in need. Also the sisters finding their hearts love in men that will be able to handle everything that comes with entering the Drake family. This series rem

Awesome Read

I loved he journey this story took me on. This third book can be read as a stand alone but I recommend the reading of the first two books in this series. Abbie and her Sasha have touched my heart with their story. I look forward to reading the next book and highly recommend this series to all.
