Air Bound
Sisters of the Heart (Sea Haven)- Book#3
by Christine Feehan
Release Date: May 27, 2014
Air BoundAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / The Book Depository

Description:
For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating ‘patterns’ in the air around her-whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered.

Airiana fled the program, but she couldn’t outrun the desperate members of a shadowy cabal who want her, who need her, who will kill to get her. Kidnapped and held aboard a ship bound for dangerous seas, her only chance for rescue is Maxim Prakenskii. He has his reasons for helping her, but he isn’t about to reveal them to Airiana. Not yet. Not as the two are drawn together as moth to flame. Not when there are so many secrets yet untold that could shatter the quaint community of Sea Haven and all who reside there…

 

Review:
Air Bound is the 3rd book in Christine Feehan’s Sisters of the Heart series, which is part of her Sea Haven series.  I loved the first arc of Sea Haven, the Drake Sisters, which is one of my favorite series.  Sisters of the Heart is different, though it does take place in the town the Drakes sisters live in. The sisters are not related, but have been brought together from a common bond, something terrible that happened to them in their earlier lives; they also have elemental powers, with each having something different.  The sisters live on a farm land, with each having their own homes on the land that is protected to keep them safe.  As we are in the third book, the first two sisters, Rikki and Judith are happily married to a Prakenskii; men who are former powerful Russian mercenaries/undercover agents, and whom will do everything to protect the land. We already know the other sisters will eventually find their mates within the remaining brothers. 

Air Bound belongs to Airiana who is an air elemental.  We spend a short time with the girls, as Airiana wakes up screaming from a bad dream.  If her dreams are beginning again, it is a bad omen, as something is going happen.  Not too long later, Airiana is kidnapped and taken on a ship.  We meet our hero, Maxim, who helps protect Airiana from the other men involved in the kidnapping.  He tells her she is being brought to meet her scientist father, whom she knows nothing about. 

What follows is an exciting story that begins from the start, and continues on a wild ride to the finish.  Maxim is all business, trying to protect Airiana.  But it doesn’t take long for both of them to feel their attraction, though Maxim will fight it a lot longer. He refuses to allow his feelings to put them in danger.  As I noted, it is a wild tension & action filled ride, with danger, fighting, death at each stop.  Along the way, Airiana does meet her father, but there are so many twists, betrayals, and bloodshed, that if you blink for a second, you will miss something.  We also get to meet some new permanent characters that are being added. 

We know Maxim is a killing machine, and at times I found it hard to believe he could get out of all those dangerous situations.  They worked well together, and Airiana learned how to help Maxim and fight back. 

With all the non-stop action and excitement, the romance between them built fairly quickly, and became sizzling. I loved Airiana, especially when she became surer of herself. Once again, another Prakenskii comes along and I fall in love all over again. Except for maybe Ilya, Maxim is now my favorite. There were a number of villains, and one who I’m sure will be part of the next book or thereafter.  The entire story was excitement every single moment, but it was great to see in the last quarter of the book, how the sisters used their elemental powers to team with the three Prakenskii men in a fantastic exciting climax.

Christine Feehan has given us another fabulous Sisters of the Heart story, witih Air Bound and I look forward to the next one.
