New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her seductive and "devilishly passionate" (RT Book Reviews) Immortals After Dark series with this tale of a vampire shunned 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, vampire warrior 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?… (més)

Well I have to say this book as probably been the least problematic out of all the KResley books I have read.

The approach in this book was much better this time around. We actually got to see two people met and slowly learn who the other ways WAY before any kind of intimacy was forced into the beginning. You go through most of this book with both being being psychically unable to touch each other and it made it so much better because it forced them to actually talk and get to know one other its an organically grown relationship.

There was also a lot less "CLAIM" and "POSSESS" going on in this book. Sure the vampire dude made his comments here and there but it wasn't like how the other books where, he felt he needed her to keep himself sane and she was his escape from all the rage and anger going on in his head. But he also feared ever hurting her and wanted to distance himself from her.

Their relationship is actually one I find sweet, she didn't put up with his attitude, like breaking her house [which by the way was adorable how angry she got about that] and she didn't let him talk down to her. But she also encouraged him to be a better person and she always kept believing that there was a way for him to be better. I will say in the beginning she was a creep hahha, but slowly that changed and I guess being a ghost you can't really help but watch people haha.

Also the overall story is also getting better, Nix has her freaking hands in everything and another couple was hinted at and Im interested to know who that was, and now the next book is gonna tell me more about Cade. So Out side of the romance story I really love the characters who reappear and the new ones who come in. The connection from book to book is really great. ( )

I had reservations when I started this book since Neomi was a ghost. I'm not a big fan of ghost romances, but Ms. Cole did a great job getting me to care about Conrad and Neomi. I thought they had wonderful chemistry and I loved the slow buildup between the two. I liked how well matched they were and how both of them needed healing. I did wonder how they would have their HEA and while I was a tad bit disappointed, this was a great read and a wonderful addition to this series. ( )

Synopsis
Turned into a vampire against his will, Conrad Wroth has spent 300 years fighting the bloodlust and memories that have rendered him virtually insane. Sequestered in a haunted house with the ghost of Neomi Laress, a dancer murdered by former fiance, Conrad discovers that there are things with living for but it may be too late to save the only woman he has ever held dear.

Review
Gets off to a slow start but heats up halfway through.

Conrad and Neomi complement each other well - he is a sexually inexperienced and vengeful vampire aching for death while she is a brazen and feisty ghost with a zest for life. Their relationship builds slowly into an enchanting romance, and they have some seriously sexy scenes together.

The writing is entertaining as usual although Cole's use of present tense POV during Conrad's transition into sanity falls a little flat. The gothic atmosphere and haunted house setting are compelling as are the cameo appearances by Nix, who never ceases to crack me up, and Bowen and Mariketa, who have such a wonderful dynamic.

Despite its predictability, the plot has some entertaining elements such as Neomi's klepto tendencies (she reminds me of Anya in LOTR) and Conrad's slow recovery from bloodlust. There are, however, several underdeveloped and even confusing points. Conrad's encounter with the dream demon and his subsequent dream/nightmare curse is never fully explained nor is its effect completely apparent. Moreover, there are references to events in Cade and Murdoch's stories that seem disjointed and even had me feeling that I had missed out on a novella. These inconsistencies will apparently be explained further down the line but can be distracting.

One the whole, the story is good and the ending very satisfying. I enjoyed the original resolution to Neomi's mortality problem and look forward to the next book - it will be interesting to see how Cadeon handles things with his human mate. ( )

Con questo quarto romanzo la Cole si conferma quasi definitivamente come una delle migliori scrittrici paranormal romance attuali in quanto a originalità e stile. Anche se ancora non al livello della Regina, J.R.Ward, Kresley Cole con questo libro raggiunge una maturità stilistica e narrativa decisamente invidiabile dopo i primi "tentativi" - non per questo infruttuosi - rappresentati dai primi tre capitoli della serie.

Anche se non è presente tutta l'azione e il sense of humor a cui ci aveva abituati con i suoi precedenti lavori, in questo romanzo l'autrice ha preferito concentrarsi sull'evoluzione "giustificata" dei sentimenti amorosi fra i due protagonisti. Invece di scrivere "Si amano perché lei è la sua Sposa, punto e basta", questa volta la Cole ha giocato con l'incertezza, con la naturale evoluzione dei sentimenti e con le circostanze. I protagonisti arriverano a sviluppare una rapporto incredibilmente intenso a prescindere dalla loro fisicità, del Destino o quant'altro.

Lui: destesta i vampiri ed è stato addestrato fin da bambino a combatterli ed ucciderli. Lui è un vampiro.

Lei: ha combattutto contro il maschilismo del suo tempo, contro le privazioni e con orgoglio è arrivata a conquistare tutto ciò che ha sempre desiderato. Lei poi è morta.

Due persone che più diverse non potrebbero essere e le cui non-vite sembrano destinate a non sfiorarsi mai. Conrad è assetato di sangue, rigido, crudele e assetato di vendetta. Néomi è vivace, sensuale, sbarazzina e con un incredibile desiderio di "vita" che le scorre dentro. Entrambi sono prigionieri e contro ogni pronostico finiranno per entrare in contatto, per vedersi e parlarsi attraverso i veli della follia di Conrad e della solitudine di Néomi.

Il loro avvicinamento sarà una lunga impetuosa e rabbiosa danza che li spingerà l'una verso l'altro per poi respingersi in preda a furenti scoppi di d'ira e segreti celati.

Un rapporto molto complesso, profondo e maturo che catturerà l'attenzione del lettore, pagina dopo pagina, anche grazie allintervento di numerosi personaggi secondari, alcuni dei quali già noti e che aspettavamo con ansia.

Come sempre l'approfondimento psicologico dei personaggi, di tutti i personaggi, è notevole e la cura dell'autrice nel trattare l'aspetto sessuale della storia d'amore risulta essere più delicata (dal punto di vista dei termini, non certo del contenuto che rimane sempre molto... infuocato).

Il problema di questo romanzo, problema che ha contribuito a non attribuire la quinta stella (e che avrebbe potuto spingere la votazione anche sotto la quarta se non fosse per la fiducia) è la traduzione. I tempi verbali! I verbi "azzeccati" risultano essere, tristemente, in rapporto 2 a 6, se va bene. Il libro è tradotto male, decisamente, ed è un peccato visto che ultimamente il prodotto offerto dalla Leggereditore sembrava leggermente migliorato, se non altro in contronto alle prime edizioni della Ex Zorro Editore!

Oh, this was simply amazing. I can't get past the fact that this started as a love story between a condemned vampire and a ghost and they had one of the most sensual scenes I have ever read between two people. There were so many plot twists and curve balls that I didn't get a sense of where their story was going.

Again with the awesome writing, character development and world building. I am so I credibly excited to see where the bid picture leads. ( )
