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?

This book was a buddy read with Ruby @ Bookishly Ruby. You should check her review here. I was both exited and scared to read Dark Needs at Night’s Edge since the heroine is a ghost. I haven’t read many books featuring them.

“This is the first time I’ve really looked at my reflection in months. No wonder you love me. Could I be any cuter?”

It has been nice to see Wroth brothers meet their brides one by one. Conrad is a little mad when we meet him but it kinda made me like him even more. I really felt for Néomi. I could relate to her loneliness and it was so sad that she got murdered in her own home in her big night.

I feel like this series is getting better and better every book. This book reminded why I love reading paranormal romance so much. There were some angst since we had half mad vampire and a ghost which you’d think is a recipe for disaster and secrets but I just loved almost everything about this book. Conrad could have a temper but in a way both him and Neomi always fought for each other.

4.5 stars
