Review Guardians of Stone By Anita Clenney

Guardians of Stone By: Anita Clenney

Kendall Morgan is a human bloodhound. Spending her childhood hunting relics with her ambitious archaeologist 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

This is the first book I have read by Anita Clenney and I have to say I loved it. This is a very fast paced and action packed book with romantic tension interlaced. Little bit of TombRaider (yes Anita is a female relic detector) and DaVinci Code(follow the clues).

Kendell has a knack for not listening and going with her gut, that gut normally gets her into a situation that Jake has to save her from. I didn't like Jake at first because he was kind of an ass about going on a relic hunting mission with Kendell. Nathan is a very interesting character and I want to know so much more about him. He hides a lot of things which cause some issues with those involved, even though he is the boss I thought he should be upfront and honest with Kendell as it seems he really cares for her. 

The mystery of this book was very search for the holy grail like which i loved you don't know what the relic is till later and i have to say I loved the Sentry Guards, the ghost monk and the Italian setting... Very Cool.  There is also romantic tension between Kendall and Jake which I loved and there are parts which make you wonder how they can stay undercover with all the hiccups along the way. One side character will make you want to tell her to shut up and mind your own damn business lol. 

Anita Clenney wraps up this relic finding mission very nicely, I say mission because well there has to be another one with Kendell, Jake and Nathan and I can't wait to read it. I finished this book in a about 4 hours cause I couldn't put it down and I have read it twice more. There is some transaction issues and questions that are not answered but I loved the fast paced action mystery of the book that made me want to keep reading regardless of these issues. 

I rate this book a 4 out of 5

* I won this book and my review is honest and of my own opinion
