Review: Dark Needs at Night’s Edge by Kresley Cole (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted April 26, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads: Bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her seductive Immortals After Dark series with this tale of a vampire shunned even by his own kind and a beautiful phantom, bound together by a passion they cannot resist.

Néomi Laress, a famous ballerina from a past century, became a phantom the night she was murdered. Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers — until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Néomi herself.

To prevent him from harming others, Conrad Wroth’s brothers imprison him in an abandoned manor. But there, a female only he can see seems determined to drive him further into madness. The exquisite creature torments him with desire, leaving his body racked with lust and his soul torn as he finds himself coveting her for his own.

Yet even if Conrad can win Néomi, evil still surrounds her. Once he returns to the brutality of his past to protect her, will he succumb to the dark needs seething inside him?

Bought for myself

What I Loved: This is a fantastic continuation of a series that I’m really beginning to dig. I read this one out of order by accident but that did not distract from the story. Conrad is another of the Wroth brothers and the one that took being turned into a Vampire the hardest because he was part of a society that hunted/killed Vampires before being turned. Neomi is a ghost who died a horrible death at the hands of an ex-lover and has been stuck in her house for over 80 years. Both are troubled, lonely, and in desperate need of being saved. I really liked that both of these characters needed each other equally and that made their story very enjoyable. I won’t give anything away but I did like the resolution of this story–especially what Nix said at the end. It made me giggle.

What I Liked: Seeing all of the characters that I know and love from the other stories. I am going back to read the book I accidentally skipped but this book really is making me look forward to the rest of the series. The small introductions and conflicts she introduces into the book that lead to the rest of the series is always really well done.

Complaints: None

Why I gave it a 4: This is a solid story and great addition to the series. I loved this book and felt a real connection to all the characters. I don’t think you have to read these in order but you should if you don’t want give-aways of who is hooking up with who.

Who I would recommend it too: PNR Fans
