AirBound A sea Haven novel (A Sister’s of the Heart series) book 3 by Christine Feehan.
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 . . .
My Review …..
This is a hard hitting story, full of heartbreak and fast paced action.
Airiana is a genius, she has the ability to read the air around her, it warns her of danger, but she’s never really believed in her ability, she thinks she’s going mad, her brain won’t shut down, she’s going to end up like her mother,
Maxim is another Prakenskii brother. He’s come to take Airiana to see her father, but under the cover of darkness and over his shoulder?! That’s not the normal way to meet a parent you didn’t even know existed!
Together they fight to save their lives and the lives of the children they find aboard the boat. But this isn’t a normal boat, women and children come aboard, but the don’t get off it alive!! Rich men come aboard and play out their fantasies, they are disposable toys!!
Maxim is here to do a job, find the girl and take her to her father, that’s it!! But she gets under his skin, he has a job to do, he’s not here to rescue children, he’s not here to hold this woman and feel emotions, she’s dangerous, and when faced with danger, Maxim usually kills it!!
It’s the same with all the brothers. They are all trained killers. Separated from a young age, beaten and abused, unable to feel emotions, assassins with deadly accuracy. Until they find the only woman to bring them back from the edge of darkness.
Lots of fights, lots of scenes I wish I hadn’t read, but this series just keeps getting better. The interaction between Airiana and Maxim is great, first the animosity, awareness, trust and of course the passion.
