Dark Needs at Night’s Edge

I finally got back to reading Kresley Cole’s Immortals after Dark series. And, oh, how I have missed it! Dark Needs at Night’s Edge (book 4) is the story of Conrad Wroth, a vampire in the throes of blood lust, and his love Neomi, who just happens to be a ghost (formerly a ballerina).

Instead of doing my typical comments about the story – which rocked, by the way – I made some notes of sections that I found funny and endearing. Well, mostly funny. I hope that you agree and enjoy the snippets I’ve chosen.

We’ll start on page 114 with. . .

Cade shook his head. The fuckwit has no idea what he’s provoking.

“No,” Regin began, “making you wear your bulbous horns out of your ass wouldn’t be nice.”

Rydstrom asked, “Should we warn that demon?”

“Let them sort out the tosser,” Cade answered . . .

(after the fight)

Rydstrom’s battle-scarred face creased into a grin. “It’s never dull with Valkyrie around.”

Next, moving onto page 166 . . .

Neomi lived in the moment, laughed easily, flirted constantly . . . [her theory] “People think happiness will simply fall into their laps. You have to aspire to it. And sometimes you have to seize it when it’s kicking and screaming.”

My last sample is from page 186 (the Valkyrie are scheming) . . .

“Wait a second.” Myst narrowed her gaze. “What in the hell are we doing? We’re Valkyrie – we take what we want.”

“What do you mean?” Kaderin asked.

“Kristoff won’t let our men go? Then Kristoff needs to be taught a lesson. I say we capture the whole bloody castle.”

There was a dangerous light to Kaderin’s eyes. “Fucking A.”

[Conrad’s comment after hearing all of this] “They might be small, but either one of them could lift a train.” His tone absent, he said, “Kristoff’s sitting across the world – with no idea that hell has just been unleashed against him.”

These weren’t the only passages that made me chuckle or smile. Just a few to illustrate the writing style of Kresley Cole. She has crafted such a unique world with wonderful, endearing characters who have a range of personalities – all of which the reader will love. I definitely recommend this series and will continue to read it.
