Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Air Bound returns to the mysterious coastal town of Sea Haven, where six sisters of the heart are bound by the elements, and one is stalked by an inescapable past.
After escaping from a cult, Lexi found refuge with her sisters on the farm that more than sustained her body - it nurtured her soul as well. But she never forgot the terror she left behind or the always present fear that the cult would find her again and claim her. Then her nightmare came true.
Lexi was discovered and threatened - only to be suddenly saved by a stranger. He is Gavriil Prakenskii, and he's awestruck by the woman he's rescued. She is destined for him. He can feel it in his soul. But how can Lexi find happiness with a man steeped in secrets and shadows, one intimately acquainted with violence and whose very love could be the death of them?

Usual story, terrible narration

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.

Excellent Story!! Horrible Narrator!!

I am so glad that I read this book first before listening to audible. I have been waiting a long time for Earth Bound and I was not disappointed. Lexi and Gavriil's story is inspiring. I just love those Prakenskii brothers.The Sea Haven Series is awesome.

I REALLY wish a different narrator had been chosen to read the story. Mike Chamberlain was horrible. He sounded stilted and the story did not flow. He did very little to distinguish between the various characters and soon everyone started to sound alike. His reading does not draw the listener in and actually makes it very difficult to finish listening to the story. Please do not let him read any more Sea Haven books.
