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 mine field 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 esponage, she is arrested and sentanced to death. 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 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 prisoner's enemies, he discovers, are also the ones who hold his life in the palm of their hands.
Through stunning imagery, an intricate and adventurous plot, and a strong cast of characters, Feather Stone gives readers a fast paced story woven with murder and magic.

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’s easy-going and all. Sam Waterhouse’s a soldier, a captain and he’s kind of uptight. But somehow Sidney got under his skin. I like the way their relationship develop throughout the story. But it was kind of weird at first though, since she’s a prisoner and he’s the captain of the ship and all. Not to mention, I have NO IDEA what age is Sidney. Maybe it did mention in the book and I missed it or forgot but whatever. This book was so enjoyable that I don't really care about it.
The Guardian’s WildChild was definitely an enjoyable and interesting read. I mean, it’s also filled with all those awesome elements. Romance, backstab, suspense, etc. Definitely an enjoyable read. I’d definitely read more books by Feather Stone J
