Reflections on Dark Needs at Night's Edge

Dark Needs at Night's Edge by Kresley Cole

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

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.

Naomi 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
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 Naomi, 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?

My rating: Liked It

Néomi Laress is a ghost who lives in the same house she was brutally murdered in. Elancourt was a classic gothic estate but is now abandoned.

As a human she was a famous ballet dancer.

Conrad Wroth is a fallen vampire who kills for blood and whose eyes have turned red. Fallen vampires are hunted down by the forebearers because they are dangerous and because the memories of their victims make them crazy.

After Sebastian, Nikolai and Murdoch find their brother, they bring him to Elancourt bound and chained ensuring his safety. I thought it strange that Conrad was the only one who could see .....the beautiful female.

Néomi is a gentle ghost and the most sensual if ever there was such a thing. She could move things with her mind and scared unwanted guests if she had to, but she began having strong feelings for Conrad right from the start and she made him want to be a better person/vampire.

Néomi contacted Mariketa the witch to see about giving her a body. She might be a powerful witch but she could not bring Néomi back from the dead. However she was able to embody Néomi for awhile under the understanding that she would die again very soon . During that short period of time Conrad came back to life. He was blooded and claimed Néomi for himself and eventually got married yadda yadda yadda

I liked all the characters in this book particularly Nix. Who doesn't like her right? She's my favourite.


  1. Nyx sounds like a great character!

  2. I am beyond curious about the characters in this book. I have seen Kresley Cole books everywhere. Must read.
