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.


Running Out of Moonlight is the second book in the Saint Lakes series by author April Kelley. I have not read the first book in this series, and this story was very easy for me to follow. There is enough back story and enough explanation of the world to make this a stand alone novel.
Sage is a snake shifter. He was kidnapped by vampires. They tortured him. He used to be carefree and not shy. Now he is withdrawn and easily scared. He has PSTD. He works mostly on instinct now. The flash backs can be debilitating for him.
Garridan cannot stand to see his mate in so much pain. He is a dragon shifter. He has a protective streak a mile wide for his mate. He is a good person and gives Sage time to get used to him. But dragons need their mates to stabilize them. He cannot wait for ever for his love.
Over all a really well paced story. I liked these two together. There is a real connection and you can feel their love almost jump off the pages. I would love to read more from this series in the future. I would like to see how things progress from here. There is at ton of story that is really fun to read about.
