Christine Feehan's books are always well written with interesting characters and plot lines, and this book is no different. However, The multiple chapters of waaaaayyyyy too much detail on the lead female character's sadistic sexual slavery was TMI!

It was seriously unsettling and held no entertainment value, and the book could have been all the better for me had she simplified it somewhat. It was just too much for me, and left me unsettled for days. I didn't want to read any of my other books t

I can't put into words how much I hated this book...but I'm gonna try. Now, I'm not a Feehan fan (read one Carpathian before this series and...shudders) but I really liked the idea of magical sisters. To be honest, the other stories weren't toxic. The first four are solid stories but it seems that Feehan (at least in this series) had an absolute knack for making secondary characters utterly amazing but then didn't know what to do with them when they got their own book. This happened in the last ...more

Shelves: keepers
An outstanding read - with difficulties. In the first portion of the book the heroine is captured, tortured, and raped repeatedly with the intent to 'break' her. It takes a month before her friends and family manage to locate and rescue her. This would be uncomfortable reading about a relatively unknown character and is much worse when it is someone we have come to know and love through the previous books. The dynamics of Elle's struggle to overcome her physical, emotional and psychic trauma, in ...more

2 or 3 Stars?...I can't decide...

"Hidden Currents" was the last book in the Drake sisters series.

It includes very descriptive torture and rape scenes... If you normally shy away from novels with these storylines than this isn't a book you want to pick up.

I've never been a huge fan of this authors because her books are usually up and down...half the book is great and then the other half leaves you disappointed. That's how HC was. Half the book was great, the other...not so good. It's starts off v

This is probably the worst book I've ever read. The fact that it includes detailed rape/torture scenes in it bothered me only in the sense that it doesn't make an enjoyable story and I felt it was completely unnecessary. If I were reading a book about a war-torn 3rd world country where that happens and where the point of the book was to shed light on the horrid truth, then it wouldn't have bothered me. For this book, it felt contrived and shed no light on human trafficking.

Sometimes when I read a book quickly I get a reading "high" and think, Man this is one of the best books I've ever read, only to think about it for a few days and realize there were glaring flaws that I just didn't catch in my euphoria. This might be one of those cases, but I don't care. I loved this book, it's the book I've been waiting the whole series for.

Hidden Currents is the last book in the Drake Sisters series... I've really enjoyed the series so far and I must say that I think Feehan came up with a very different and definitely darker book than the others to close the series. While I had no problems with it the number of negative reviews on Amazon surely attests to the fact that a lot of readers do.

To begin with, Elle, who is an undercover cop is found out and tortured by the man she was investigating. Not only that but he wants to break he

If I could give this zero stars I would. The first six in this series were light, easy, romance paranormal with a little bit of danger and little bit of sexual dominance. This book spent five chapters with the main female character being tortured, raped, and eventually rescued. If that weren't bad enough, later she has the main male character who we already knew was tortured relive some of that torture. She has her main character who was demolished by her torturer have sex three days after she's ...more

Okay. As much as I looked forward for this one I stopped after chapter 7. I just read the last chapter to know how the end is but I knew that before I read it.

Sorry but this storyline in this book isn't working for me. It's ridiculous and for me it seems like the author wanted it to be the big-bang thing.

But honestly?
The start alone with this strange psychic sick perv who wanted Elle to do what he wanted being his sex slave? And Jackson being on her mind telling her she should do what that perv

Just love this series. The action. The alpha men. The strong women. The magic. I attempted 4 other books before starting this and settling right in. Even read all out of order this is a fantastic series.

Hidden Currents is the last book of the Drake Sisters series and I really enjoyed this instalment. In many ways, the order of this book seemed a little turned round with the kidnapping and then daring rescue happening at the beginning of the book and the rest of the book dealing with the aftermath and stopping the big bad.

In terms of just this book's story, I felt like we hadn't really seen to much of Elle before this book so we really only get to know post kidnapping Elle. I liked Elle and Jack

I really do not know how to respond to this book...It pulled me a lot of differents ways most more uncomfortable than pleasurable....I remember having to stop reading various books from Mrs. Feehan's Carpathians series because within the first like three chaps. I just thought that they were too visceral for my taste...I know she is known for being extremely explicit in her romance novels, that I can kinda handle, but, th

I had to give this out while I was cleaning out my bookshelf. This has been sadly on my back burner shelf for over a year and I couldn't gather up enough interest to pick it up and finish it. If I can't bother to finish a book in the first attempt then I most likely will not come back to it. This is the second book by Christine Feehan I've attempted to read and ended up DNFing.

I purchased this book from I got one of the first books in the series as a special deal, and thought it and the next few were good enough to purchase the rest of the series.

Boy, was I wrong.

The fifth and sixth books in the series were bad enough, but with a lot if fast-forwarding I got through them. I returned this one.

Yes, after 13 years as an Audible member and hundreds of books purchased, I finally returned one. It. Was. That. Bad. Maybe it's just me, but graphic descriptions
Another book by Christine Feehan about the rape and torture and then rescue and insta-love of a poor helpless woman (who is supposed to be strong and independent but isn't) by the aggressive strong relationships are all about sex man (but hey he has a whole depth of feelings, not). Tell me really who is tortured and sexually abused then is rescued only to have hot passionate loving sex with another man a day or two later like the previous days were just a nightmare and not reality?

This book would get 0 stars if that was possible.

I liked most of the others in this series but this was terrible!! I certainly didn't expect page after page of torture and rape scenes to start off the book, followed by totally ludicrous and offensive scenes where the heroine supposedly begins to recover. Wow, what was this author thinking?? I should have read the amazon reviews before reading this.
Hidden Currents is book 7 (the final installment, perhaps...) of Christine Feehan's enjoyable Drake Sisters series. In it, we find the story of the youngest sister Elle Drake, and the man destined to help her shoulder the intimidating Drake legacy, Jackson Deveau.

Years ago, as Jackson lay in enemy hands, tortured and broken, Elle filled his mind and shared her psychic energy and strength with him to save his soul. After his escape, Jackson moved to Sea Haven with his friend Jonas Harrington to
Well, I tried. I needed to because I’ve been going on the journey with the Drakes and I adore these characters. I've decided not to rate the book because I couldn't read it all & it wouldn't be an unbiased rating. I did notice from what I read that the writing flowed better here compared to some of the other books in the series.

Wow...what can I say about a book starting so powerful? Elle( the 7th daughter of a 7th daughter) is kidnapped and Brutalized by Stavros ( a very rich shipping magnet). He is psychic just like her. He wants her for his "mate" to make strong psychic babies. He is a monster...he dominates her and punishes her to get her to bend to his will. This was hard to read how beaten she was. Stavros was a "sick man." He kept telling her he loved her.....ha if thats love....NO THANKS!

I really like this series and have been looking forward to see how things turn out. I think what Elle went through and endured was horrific. It was great that with Jackson he was someone who could understand her and how her feelings could turn on a dime. As someone who went through a horrific exerience himself, he knew what it would take for Elle to start to heal. I was sad to see her pushing her sisters away, but understood her reasoning why.

My review didn't save because I wrote most of it half way through the book and the rest when I finished it. Unfortunately I was logged off but others expressed feelings that were just as upset as mine.


It sucked. In many ways including having a victim of rape/violence/ who was forced to give oral sex recover so quickly she gives a bj to her very dominant mate who sometimes love bites her. Elle also says she learned a lot of tricks (from her captor!) and might as well use them. REALLY!
