Guardians of Stone by Anita Clenney

Guardians of Stone (The Relic Seekers)Kendall Morgan is a human bloodhound. Spending her childhood hunting relics with her ambitious archeologist father, she knew the two of them shared a sixth sense for the history and location of objects—sometimes even people. What she didn’t know was that their paranormal gift could ultimately be their undoing.

After the tragic plane crash that killed her father as well as her childhood best friend, Kendall dedicated her life to finding and protecting relics. When mysterious, sexy billionaire Nathan Larraby hires her for his latest expedition—the search for four powerful relics —she’s thrown into a world of high-octane danger. He sends brooding mercenary Jake Stone to watch Kendall’s back, but he may have created danger of a different kind.

As the team chases down clues, a man called the Reaper makes a play for the artifacts and will stop at nothing to put them to his own sinister use. What’s worse is that Nathan hasn’t told the whole story, and the dark secrets he’s keeping could cost them the mission…and their lives.

My Review:
Having enjoyed the book immensely, I was rather surprised at the reviews that the book has garnered. I felt the book was very well written, the author’s vivid descriptions allowing the reader to become part of the book, part of the chase. The book had an eccentric cast of characters that kept you on your toes throughout the book.

I got caught up in the story as I pictured the hiking trail and swinging bridge as two of the characters traversed the hillside (to give more examples would give too much away). The author went into a lot of detail about the castle and the hidden passages, catacombs, etc. I was fascinated by this and felt she did an excellent job. The author also managed to disperse humor in conversations throughout the book.

I enjoyed the intrigue and the author brought about a cliffhanger that I didn’t see coming, leaving me breathlessly awaiting the next book in the series. I am giving .... the five stars I think it deserves.
