Review: Earth Bound (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart #4) by Christine Feehan (PNR)

Book Blurb

The #1 New York Times bestselling 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?



Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In this newest Sea Haven novel, Lexi is excited to add land to the farm. When she steps across the property line to gaze at it her past comes back with a vengeance. The man she has been hiding from has found her and is ready to kill her. Gavriil Prakenskii comes to her rescue. He has been watching her realizing that she is his. His plans and his life have changed in an instant as a result. He now has someone of his own.

When Lexi’s past comes knocking all her secrets are revealed. Graviil is determined to keep her safe. He wants to eliminate any threat aimed at her. He and his brothers will protect Lexi and her sisters with their lives if it comes to that. Lexi is unsure she can allow them to do that. She would rather leave the farm to keep everyone safe. Her guilt is overwhelming as is her fear. Gavriil is determined to keep her. Let the battle of wills begin.

I love this author and all her Sea Haven novels so far. I’ve read them all. These women have a violent past and have found each other. They’ve formed a family and support system. They each have special gifts tied to an element. Lexi is bound to the Earth and the farm is flourishing as a result. She also does well in her safe haven. She rarely leaves the farm. In former books you really don’t know much about Lexi except she runs the farm. This book reveals her story and digs into the fears she deals with on a daily basis.

Then you meet Gavriil, another Prakenskii brother. He is a silent killer trained as a child just like his younger brothers. His character is solitary and uncomfortable around people. He goes against everything he thinks he is for Lexi. It is a sweet love story unfolding among violence that tries to invade both lives. A great addition to the series. I give it a 4 out of 5.
