It’s mentioned many times that he has all of the gifts, like Elle, yet everyone is surprised when he admits to being the seventh son of a seventh son.
I guess another reason why I feel the way I feel is because we had new people. I feel like I should have had a connection with them but I couldn’t because this was the first time seeing the band. Maybe if the author had put little glimpses of the band in the other books it would have been better but I don’t know.
The writing just didn’t seem as good for this one as the other books. I’ve always felt like this, all the other books are great but this one just falls short of my expectations.
The cover is beautiful but when I look at it, I just get this feeling like it’s not that great of a book. I’m still going to read this when I re-read the series sometime in the future but I’m not really looking forward to it.
The pace is a little slow and then speeds up near the end. I’m not really sure how I should feel about the Nitkin situation being resolved, it just seemed anti-climactic and just there for shock value.
Joley is back on tour. She is still a bit worried about the reverend, RJ, but all in all the tour is going well. She is receiving hate mail and worries about a stalker. When the incidents start, Nikitin offers the services of Ilya Prakenskii. Joley is leery of her responses to Ilya and tries to keep him at a distance. But when real danger arrives she is glad to have him near.
Ilya is not what he seems. She already knows he has the gifts her family has and he has all of the gifts. He is not ready or willing to open his chamber of secrets to anyone. His life has been a very lonely one and he doesn't really know how to be with anyone. Never in his life has he even thought about a relationship. But Joley takes him apart, bit by bit, and he has found what completes him, he is not willing to let it go.
Someone seems to have it in for Joley, she can't figure why and can only think of a stalker. She has one man murdered, and he is the one she confronted about the underage girls, esspecially the one who is missing. Without her family she is closest to her band and instinctively turns to them for support during this period. However, when Ilya arrives, it is only in his presence she feels completely safe. Why, she can't figure out because she knows he is a cold blooded killer. But still he gives her a sense of safty she has only felt with her family.
I loved this book and I hope the next one will be as good.
Ilya Prakenskii has lived his life in isolation, cultivating his reputation as a ruthless hit man and bodyguard as he works to bring down his current employer. His existence had been cold, emotionless, until the first moment he heard Joley's voice. And after meeting Joley in person, he knows she is the one woman fated to be his. For Joley isn't the only one with magic in her blood, and Ilya is prepared to use every seductive trick he can to keep the songstress into his life, forever.
As danger explodes around the pair, Joley turns to one man she believes to keep her safe. But even as passion burns bright between the two, Joley has a decision to make. Should she play it safe or risk everything and give her heart to a man she isn't completely sure she can trust?
Prepare yourselves for a fiery, passionate romance which is, indeed, as turbulent as the sea. Christine Feehan has written yet another incredible installment in her Drake Sisters series. Ever since book three of the series, Oceans of Fire, I've waited for the dynamic pairing of Joley Drake and Ilya Prakenskii and Turbulent Sea lived up to my expectations. Ilya was dark, dominant, and completely endearing in his absolute certainty of his love for Joley and his determination to keep her safe. In Turbulent Sea, Ms. Feehan shows a more vulnerable side to Joley, who on the surface seems so strong and carefree, and the contrast only makes her more endearing. The desire brewing between Ilya and Joley was spellbinding and pulled me in from the start. The passionate draw between the two could have carried the story on its own. Yet Ms. Feehan drew me in further with the underlying tenderness between Joley and Ilya as I watched two souls learn to trust one another with their love.
So often I read books where the heroine, though likeable, is simply the mechanism for me to fall in love with the hero. Not so with the Drake sisters. Each sister is a fully-fleshed, realistic character I love for herself alone, and Joley is no exception. Where Ilya is dark and cold with hints of lightness in his soul, Joley is brilliant, vibrant, with just enough darkness to understand Ilya. The two compliment and complete one another, but even before I fell in love with their romance, I had connected to both Ilya and Joley for themselves alone.
If I could ask for one thing to be included in this book, it would be for Ilya to share more of his past with Joley. As it stands, however, the book was fantastic from beginning to end and both the characters and the story felt fully realized. Ms. Feehan does not disappoint - I Joyfully Recommend Turbulent Sea and cannot wait for the youngest Drake sister, Elle, to get her story. Simply fabulous!
