Dark Needs at Night's Edge (Immortals After Dark, Bk 4) by Kresley Cole

I wasn't crazy about this book. In fact, I hated the first 200 or so pages of it. If the first 200 pages had been condensed to about 50 pages, it would have been a much better book.

Also, this book doesn't really take us any further into the Accession. The books so far have taken us on a journey. There is a long term plot, where you have to read all of the books to understand it and keep up with it. But this one didn't. We don't really know anything more about the various factions preparing for the Accession now than we did at the end of the last book. And there was no real plot in this book. Just the romance, nothing much else. And parts of the romance made me want to tear my hair out.

I loved the last book in the series and couldn't wait for the next one to arrive. But after reading this one I'm really disappointed.
