Guess what guys? Have you seen the new cover for J.R. Ward’s next Black Dagger Brotherhood release? (thank you Jacque!!) “The King: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood” is already up for pre-order, with an expected release date of March 25th 2014.

Wrath and the Brotherhood are locked in an epic battle over his throne and the very future of the vampire race.

*Squeeeeee*  We’re heading back to Wrath’s story and I couldn’t be happier. Okay maybe if it were “Z” I’d have squee’d myself into a faint ;) . Hehe. But as many of you know, my top three brothers include Wrath and to be able to spend a book pining for him (and hurting for him) again, thrills me to no end.

As I stalked the author’s Facebook page, I found a BIG post in regards to the future of BDB and her Fallen Angels. These sort of contain “spoilers” as she hints and what’s coming up next for certain characters, and I chose some of the tidbits that seem relevant to this upcoming book:

  • “Next book is about Wrath and Beth and is called the King – it will be about him having an heir…”
  • “Beth’s pregnancy may be more in line with humans given she’s a half breed”
  • “How will it work with Qhuinn and Blay, Layla, Xcor and the baby – KEEEEEP REEEADING!!”
  • “Will the SV be in The King? She doesn’t know but something will need to be done with her.”
  • “Wrath still owes the SV that favor…”
  • “There WILL be more about Jane and V – she’s also talking to her publisher about revisiting each couple in full book form.
  • “Will Havers be in The King and deliver Wrath and Beth’s baby – KEEP READING (but over the WARDen’s dead body!!!)”

Nice cover but it is nothing like Wrath had been described…Wheres his hair, can kinda see a ponytail? Shades? Eye Color? Tattoos? Or…is this someone else on the throne? Gahhhh….Why is March sooooo far away?

*screaming-squeeling-frantically-running-around-while-waving-my-hands-in-the-air* I have read this whole series and practically abused *teehee* my friends into reading them as well and they LOVELOVELOVE it! Haha…makes me feel proud. I CANT WAIT to read The King. I was in class when I saw the cover and I squeeled my head off. haha xx

Kubra June 19, 2013 at 8:46 PM

I also heard that she was thinking of dedicating another book to Rhage and Mary – My heart stopped when I heard that! *squeeeeeeeeee* xx

Oh my goodness! Hurry up *explative* up March!
Ummm….can anyone provide insight on SV? Who is that refering to? I’ve read all the books and can’t quite put my finger on it?

I don’t squee very often over books, but this one had me ready to jump up and down clapping, which wouldn’t be good since I”m currently sitting in my office supposedly working on some escalated issues. I might have to shut the door and do a little victory dance, then pull myself together. I love Wrath. I can’t wait until March!!!!! It seems SO far away! This was the 3rd vampire series I read after Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse. LOVE it!

Tashia June 21, 2013 at 7:57 PM

Love it! Please write faster JR Ward; you are killing me!!!

I Would Love New Series On Revisiting All The Couples Live Would Be Great.

Anne July 25, 2013 at 2:09 PM

Love this series. Cant wait. Till then can anybody suggest a good book to read after BDB ?

Latonia Clayton December 27, 2013 at 4:40 AM

Nice, but I think Wrath cover could have been better, example he is not that big and menacing looking and he should have LOOSE FLOWING BLACK HAIR, not in a pony tail and where’s the five o clock shadow? This just looks like a handsome bodybuilder or bouncer nothing extraordinary in my opinion.

Heather December 30, 2013 at 10:57 PM

Personally, I pictured Wrath to look like Peter Steel from the band Type O Negative

EricaV March 29, 2014 at 12:25 AM

Wrath should look like Jason Momoa!!
