Dark Needs at Night's Edge

Dark Needs at Night's Edge (Immortals After Dark, #5) Dark Needs at Night's Edge by Kresley Cole

My review
rating: 3 of 5 stars
Okay, aside from the fact that my future husband is on the front cover (just as soon as I find out who he is)...

I had a hard time getting into the book at first. There was some strange wording, the character dialogue was at odds with the "behind the scenes" thoughts, and my head spun a little bit as I tried to remember who was who.

About 60 pages in, the wording and character development straightened out. I loved the plot, it wasn't the usual ghost love story. KC constantly surprises me with the twists and turns that her stories take.

Pub. Date: April 2008

Series: Immortals After Dark Book 4

Synopsis: 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?
