I know this is going to sound totally cheesy, but truly, reading this book was a journey. Stone has a remarkable ability to draw readers into this world she's created. It's our world projected into a future that's lost the most beautiful part of being human. Really, what the protagonists are fighting for throughout the story is to bring this beauty back.

It's hard for me to say whether this story was more character driven or plot driven - both are so strong. And the setting - most of it on a Nav

I absolutely loved ‘The Guardian’s Wild Child by debut author Feather Stone. I love the author's name!

This is a book I wouldn’t normally read, and I am glad I did. Sometimes in life you get drawn towards things and I think this book was one of them.

This book had me in a bit of a reading trance, where I just wanted to keep reading and reading. It is set in the future and the first few chapters take us in leaps of years to get to where we meet Samura Wat

Taking place in a bleak future, The Guardian’s Wildchild is a mystical journey starring Guardian Sidney Davenport and US Navy Captain Sam Waterhouse. The Guardians are a powerful people who oversee and care for the planet and humanity. They secretly live among us, exerting their subtle influence. Some of us are “sleeping” Guardians who haven’t realized our power.

When the Guardians catch wind of an evil plot that will destroy life as we know it, they send Sidney to steal a com
A little bit of Pocahontas, with a hint of Pirates of the Caribbean, some post-apocalyptic mayhem and a whole lot of military dystopia and the result is this book. It is not a bad a book, but it is also not my kind of thing. At all. Too new agey for me.

The Guardian’s Witchchild was a fast paced read with a very interesting premise of power guardians who are trying to protect the earth from dangerous people. The concept was very original and the writing really kept me interested from beginning to end.

I was so excited when I got this book for the tour. I had been wanting to read it for a while and dove right in when it came in the mail. When I say dove right in, I mean that literally, this book draws you in and doesn't let go till you've read the very last word.

The characters are amazing and well developed and the plot, wow lets just say it is jam packed full of emotion. One minute I was laughing, one minute I was so mad, then I'd be crying my eyes out reading it. I love it when an author ca

I thought that THE GUARDIAN'S WILDCHILD was a very philosophical and mature Dystopian novel - full of moral righteousness and teachings. I'm not a big fan of Dystopian stories, but when the synopsis told of a love story amidst military disputes and harsh conditions, being the romance-junky that I was, I decided to give it a try.

Oh my god!! No way i was expecting the book to be that good! I loved it!

The book is written mainly with two first person POVs, of Sam and Sidney. It starts with a small introduction for both the characters and the stories, by showing you some important things in their past. While i usually i'm not fan of this method, it was written nicely and it actually fitted with the rest later. Another thing, that i really liked was how good the author had understand her ideas and what she wanted to

Her past is mysterious, as well as her mission on the ship and these both frustrate and enliven the captain who is responsible for her interrogation. In time, Sidney’s powerful abilities to manipulate objects with her mind and many other skills emerge, but Sam is disbelieving of her motives aboard the ship.

My review:

The Guardian's Wildchild by Feather Stone was a surprising book for me. It was well-written, the characters were likable and the plot was captivating.

Regarding the plot:

The very beginning of The Guardian's Wildchild caught my attention right away and that is always a good start. You get the picture of a very different Earth, where military runs almost everything. if you don't like ti you are punished. The setting was compelling and well-described, so the author did a very good job wit

The Guardian's Wildchild caught me off guard. The opening paragraph demanded my attention. When the story opens, Earth has been ravaged by natural disasters. Martial law is in effect. No mercy is shown to those perceived as a threat. Sam Waterhouse is a virtual captive to the military he is part of, there's no way out without risking his life or those of his children. Sidney Davenport is a Guardian, she was destined for greatness. When she is captured and sentenced to execution aboard Sam's ship ...more

Looking for a strong, brassy heroine? Sidney, one of the main characters, will appeal to the reader. She manages to stay strong and tough even through some of the most difficult times of her life. The reader will form an easy and instant connection to her.

Sam is more of a tough cookie. However, he is compassionate when it counts. The reader may take slightly longer to warm up to him, but he is not hard to like either.

The Guardian's Wild Child is a paranormal romance with so much more. It combines positive messages about love, compassion, and courage with adventure, espionage, and plot twists that kept me guessing right until the very end.

The backdrop was quite different than the romance stories I am used to reading. A rigid and orderly navy ship seems at first to be an odd place for two people to fall in love, especially when one is the other's prisoner. But as the story goes on the ship seems to soften into

Review on blog: Tumbling In Books

The Guardian’s WildChild got me sucked into its world the moment I started reading it. This was definitely a unique story.

Sidney was sent on a mission but the mission went haywire and she was captured and sent to the US Nonnah ship to (supposedly) be executed. Sam Waterhouse was the captain of that ship, but he wasn’t really in a rush to execute Sidney. Not with all the new information he’s finally getting out of her.

Sidney was an easy protagonist to follow. She’

This is a very well edited and put together story. It is captivatingly written with an intriguingly unique concept. Stone has created a history of these people that gives you the necessary background information. She also covers the key events in a long period of time quickly, but without the reader feeling left behind or rushed. Stone`s brilliant descriptions painted a mural for you, allowing you to see the scenes separately and as a whole.

OK, so this really did start off slow. I was intrigued by the description and thought it was a unique paranormal read, so was excited in picking it up.

There's a lot of intrigue, with military muckety-mucks who have personal agendas, blackmail, and of course the Guardians throw in that supernatural twist.

As far as the characters, I didn't care for Sidney all that much, to be honest. She's supposed to be carefree and wild, but to me her character was serious and philosophical. And when she giggles

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 betwee ...more

This such a sweet story, Stone does a fantastic job of enrapturing the reader into the world of Sidney, Sam and the Guardians. This book is full of love, fire, spirit and heart. Sidney is a spunky, compassionate character that through her many other lives are changed. The best part of this book for me are the scenes with Sidney and Sam because she is not guided by rules, and he is a walking rule book, so she is the perfect challenge for him, and he for her. Sam has courage and there is an intrig ...more

Actual Rating: DNF (Did Not Finish)

I used to feel bad about not finishing a book. About not giving it its best chance to thrill me, but with all the books out there that I want to read, I can't waste time on books that fail to interest me. The Guardian's Wildchild is one of those books. The writer's style and voice failed to grab me. The dialogue never rang true and, to be perfectly honest, I just found it boring.

Granted, I didn't even make it 100 pages in, but by that point, I'd had enough. I

I was totally enthralled with this story. At the end of every chapter you were left eager to turn the page to find out what happened next and how would it be possible for the heroine to survive through another page let alone another chapter.
The writer takes you on an incredible journey of good overcoming evil, the strength of will power and mind control. A story of unconditional love, that conquers all.

This book gives us a glimps into a dark future, with glimmers of hope and promise.The protagonist Sidney Davenport carries with her a message for all humamity and you won't want to miss it.The cover of this book suggests Young Adult but this is a great read,for any age. I highly recommend it!

Will Earth Become a Lifeless Planet in the Future? The Guardian's Wildchild by Feather Stone is a robust and complex fantasy filled with humans, Guardians, Guardian Elders and Spiritual guides with bad guys and spies at every turn.

Stone’s well-written and well-researched fantasy breathes of realism. I must admit it was a lot of information in the beginning to understand how the world was set up and where exactly I was, but once I did, the story was exciting. The Guardian’s Wildchild seems to me

So the first comment to make is if you were looking for a strong, strident and determined, female protagonist, look no further! Sidney as a main character is incredibly well characterised and appealed very strongly to me as a reader. She has a really sense of strength and flame and as a female reader I could not help but fall for her sass and grit. Even in the most difficult and stressful situations, she manages to not only ride the storm and stay tough and driven, but she also manages to fascin ...more

This book was far from what i expected.

Let's start with Sidney, although a lovely girl with a heart of gold she was pretty annoying (to me anyway -.-), i know a lot of the guardians spoke in poetry it's their world i get it, but it was really annoying sometimes. She's naive to the point she's (view spoiler)
