Book review: Water Bound by author Christine Feehan

Water Bound is a the latest release for Christine Feehan. This is book one i believe will be a series of 6 since there are 6 sisters. The series takes place is Sea Haven. If you follow Christine Feehan you might know that the Drake Sisters series took place there too so you will get to see more of the characters from that series in this new series.  I can't tell you how excited i was to hear that! Let's get start with a little piece from the back of Water Bound.

Christine Feehan’s #1 New York Times bestselling Hidden Currents may have closed the Drake Sisters saga—which “brought paranormal romance to a new high”*--but it has opened the door to an all~new series of startling magic, mystery, and the soul~stirring elements of nature….

The last thing Lev Prakenskii remembered was being lost in the swirling currents of the ocean and getting sucked deeper into the nothingness of a freezing black eddy off the coastal town of Sea Haven. Just as quickly, just a miraculously, he was saved—pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. But Lev has no memory of who he is—or why he seems to possess the violent instincts of a trained killer. All he knows is that he fears for his life, and for the life of his unexpected savior.

Her name is Rikki, a sea~urchin diver in Sea Haven. She has always felt an affinity for the ocean, and for the seductive pull of the tides. And now she feels drawn in the same way to the enigmatic man she rescued. But soon they will be bound by something even stronger, and their tantalizing secrets will engulf them both in a whirlpool of dizzying passion and inescapable danger.

Oh my gosh so if you followed the Drake sisters series you should remember Lev Prakenskii from Hidden Currents. This book kind of picks up from what happens to him at the end of that book. You get to see some of the characters from that series of course too. Since all the sisters for married at the end of Hidden Currents except Hannah cause her and Jonas already are married and she is expecting you do get to see them some. Jonas is the sheriff so of course he's there is there is trouble. The one amazing thing in this book is Rikki is autistic. High functioning but with sensory problems and she has to deal with her life in a different way than most people. Plus she's had this tragic past to deal with and then comes along Lev. Ah Lev. You think you don't like him to much in Hidden Currents but your not sure because he's kind of kept mysterious. In this book you just end up loving him. You really need to give this book a whirl. It's so well written and you get to see Rikki as a real person who is strong and capable of doing pretty much anything she thinks she needs to. Definitely a good start to Christine Feehan's new series which is called Sisters of the Heart. Six sisters bound by their hearts not blood. No surprise i give Water Bound 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars.

  1. I LOVE Christine Feehan's Dark Series, and am just starting to read the Drake sisters. This one sounds like a great one! Is she starting a new series with this book, do you think?

  2. Yes it's the first one in the series. Read the 7 Drake sisters books first then this one. the characters from the Drake sisters are in this new series. Lev is in at least one maybe 2 of the Drake sisters books. Something happens to him in the end of the Hidden Currents(book 7) and it picks up at the beginning of Water Bound. I kept wondering what happened to him and thought it was odd that we never found out. lol Turns out you had to wait for Water Bound to come out.
