I have been looking forward to this book for a year so I am pretty disappointed. I knew the story would be the usual Feehan story with lots of repetition, but I just love the Prakenskii brothers and the rest of the Sea Haven crowd. I was disappointed when the first book in this series, Water Bound, was narrated by a woman and the sample gave no examples of what her male voices would be, so I read the book instead of getting the audio. Books 2 and 3 both had great male narrators and I was very pleased with them. I was so happy to see that this narrator was male also, but he has been a big disappointment. First, he was miscast. His voice may be fine for some genres, but not for being a tough Russian. His voice is too high pitched and sounds more like a kindergarten teacher who speaks softly so that he doesn't frighten the kids. And there is virtually no Russian accent. This I blame on the editor. In addition, he pretty much just read the story. Due to the narration, I will be returning this book as I will never listen to it again.
As for the story, I've already mentioned that Feehan's books always have a lot of repetition, but I can live with that. Her men are always big alpha males and I like that. The women are a little more varied and usually very likable. I wish she would spend more time on the reunions between the brothers. So, in short, I would recommend this book, but in paper form, not audio. Again, like all Feehan books, there are explicit sex scenes. I'm happy with that but just want to mention it for those who aren't familiar with her work.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I am a big fan of Christine Feehan however this book not so much. It has a very slow start but the Worst part for me was the narration I can get beyond that man's voice . I didn't even get to finish the book because I just couldn't do it anymore , his character voices were not believable especially when it came to the women .
Would you be willing to try another book from Christine Feehan? Why or why not?
Yes it would be more than willing to try another book by this author however not by the same narrator .
How could the performance have been better?
Yes the performance could've been much better had it been maybe a female voice for another male narrator with the different tones .
