Book Review: The Guardian's Wildchild by Feather Stone

Genre: Adult Fiction (Paranormal Romance)

Book Summary via Feather Stone's Website:
The Guardian's Wildchild is a story that's unlike anything you've read before. It's not a typical romance story of starry eyed lovers in the throws of passion. No, Sidney Davenport and Captain Samaru Waterhouse are adversaries, at first.

Sidney Davenport 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 at risk.  She calls upon her spirit guides, Seamus and Celeste, to guide her through a mine field of the insane - Madame and  Captain Butchart.

But, God help Sidney, she can't deny her attraction to the man who has orders to perform her execution - the tall, dark eyed Captain Waterhouse.  He's meticulous, disciplined and trusted by his ship's officers and naval seamen. Captain Waterhouse is walking a fine line between his mother's Buddhist influence and a dark destructive path.  He 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 prisoner's enemies, he discovers, are also the ones who hold his life in the palm of their hands.

The ending? Not a fairy tale ending here. But enough said.
The Guardian's Wildchild was definitely very different from anything I have read before. I'll be honest, the whole New Age vibe was a bit of a turn off for me. That's just not something that has ever kept my attention; however the story and the characters drew me in. I thought that the story was both plot and character driven. It was definitely an emotional read. It had moments that made me laugh, moments that made me furious, and moments that brought me to tears. The point of view shifts between Sidney and Sam as well as a couple other characters giving you different perspectives as to what is going on. I felt like I was a part of their world, and was glued to the book until the end. For me, the way a book ends greatly effects how I feel about it as a whole, no matter how good it was before the ending. I was warned it wouldn't be a fairytale ending, but I still had hope.
