Book Review: The Guardian's Wildchild - Feather Stone

Synopsis - Sidney Davenport is known as Wildchild to her Guardian mentor, Greystone.  She rebels against rules.  Wildchild is gifted in the paranormal, but carefully conceals her powers from the world.  Even in the crises that threaten her life, she refuses to use her powers of telepathy, telekinesis, space/time travel.  If her enemies discovered the truth of who she is, her Guardian people would be destroyed.  She calls upon her spirit guides, Seamus and Celeste, to guide her through a minefield of the insane - Madame and Captain Butchart.

Sidney leaves her home on Hawk's Island to help the underground stop two people who are about to cause worldwide madness.  Unskilled in espionage, she is arrested and sentenced to death.  But, God help Sidney, she can't deny the attraction to the man who has the orders to perform her execution - the tall, dark eyed Captain Waterhouse.  He's meticulous , disciplined and lives by the strict rules expected of an officer of the American navy.

Captain Waterhouse is about to scrap his higher morals to bust out of his hell.  When a female prisoner is delivered to his ship, he has no idea she is capable of turning his disciplined life into a storm of unimaginable experiences.  His prisoners enemies, he discovers, are also the ones who hold his life in the palm of their hands.

Review - I won this book from a give-away sponsored by AToMR Tours  on What's Beyond Forks? blog earlier this year.  A lovely story full of intrigue, espionage, murder, romance and the military - the navy   What more could a reader ask?  Great storyline, the descriptions so vivid I could visualise the whole story.  Brilliant characterisations, I loved Sidney and Sam, and plenty of devious, dark and twisty characters such as Madame and Captain Frank Butchart.  I liked the concept of the crystal powers, they are known for healing properties, so the thought of their power is quite intriguing.  Although, in my world for the greater good.  The pace picked up towards the end of the book and my heart was in my mouth during the last few chapters.  4*
