They thought finding each other would heal them both, but life in Saint Lakes doesn’t make it that simple.
Sage Rickman was in the wrong place at the wrong time. At least that’s what he think when the vampires kidnap him. Working through the mental anguish of all the vampires did to him is difficult to get through to say the very least. Peace of mind is an elusive creature though. He thought finding his mate would make things better, but trust doesn’t come easy.
Garridan Arach can’t remember anything about his past. He’s been in his dragon form far too long for a normal shifter to take. Being feral is the least of his worries though, especially when his memory starts coming back. Not that he cares about his past. All he wants is his mate. A mate that keeps rejecting him every time they’re together. His past has a way of catching up with him, and he discovers things that will make life in Saint Lakes less than peaceful.
Where To Buy:
This story was so good. It was some of the best work I’ve read by Ms. Kelley so far. It truly showed her potential as an author. The biggest problem in the story was the overabundance of telling instead of showing. There was so much emotion and feeling in this story. Ms. Kelley is able to write great emotion when she puts her mind to it and I hope to see more in the future.
I loved Sage and Garridan. Together these two were wonderful. Sage’s journey to heal was amazing to watch. He truly went about dealing with his problems in the best possible way. Sage was surrounded by so many friends and family. It was great to see him so supported. Seeing him realize that he’s not going to be the way he was “before” was a little sad. But his aha moment was so well written.
Garridan was so growly and sexy. He had his own healing journey to go on for completely different reasons. I loved how he made his own family as he came out of his shell. He was wonderfully written and I enjoyed the addition of him to Saint Lakes.
I liked how the storyline with the vampires and Stavros progressed in this book. You get to learn more of what’s going on and see how some of the characters are involved. I am so interested in what’s going to happen next in the overarching story for the series. Plus there are so many characters I want to see get happy endings or see how their story affects things. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. While I have a guess on who it might be, I desperately need Ladon and Magnus to get a story. Want want want!
