At THE CHOSEN Signing J.R. Ward said one of the couples would be Assail and Sola but the synopsis only mentions Throe and the cover features Throe. I’m thinking the book description will be updated later. More info from J.R. Ward’s signing below. -Cori

Recovering from their most recent battle against the last of the lessers, the Brotherhood comes to realize that the fight against their enemies is far from over. Throe, Xcor’s former second in command, is using an ancient tome to summon a new army engineered by a force more dangerous and evil than the Omega.

Review: The Beast (Black Dagger Brotherhood #14) by J.R. Ward

The Beast (Black Dagger Brotherhood Series) by J.R. Ward

Publication Date: April 5, 2016

ADD TO GOODREADS

Synopsis

imageNothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…

For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…

And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world…and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from…

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I loved The Beast so much! I love everything about Rhage as a hero. He’s this perfect flawless looking guy but he’s also loyal, he’s funny and he has such a big heart. We get to see more of his qualities in this book. This new addition in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is one of my new favorites in the series. There were several scenes with Rhage and Bitty (I won’t go into who Bitty is to Rhage because I don’t want to give away anything) that just melted my heart and showed me again that there is just something honest and straightforward about Rhage that draws people in and it makes him one of my favorite brothers. So many new things happened in the storyline with existing characters and new characters were introduced. I can’t wait to see what happens next and how the new events will affect the Brotherhood. Gah! I’m already dying to get my hands on THE CHOSEN when it releases Spring 2017. The Warden has confirmed that THE CHOSEN will be Layla and Xcor’s book. BDB fans will love this new release and if you are one of the few people who haven’t heard about this paranormal series you should start at the beginning and devour them all in order. J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series is an epic paranormal romance series!

BDB Series Feature & DARK LOVER by J.R. Ward Giveaway

Let’s talk BDB! Donna and I LOVE this series! I originally discovered it after I bought the Twilight series on Amazon and Amazon suggested it as a series I would enjoy. I hope they weren’t sending that same suggestion to young teens because The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series is definitely an adult paranormal romance series. I bought a paperback copy of Dark Lover, devoured it, fell in love with the Brothers and then quickly bought the next few books that were available at the time. I also remember sitting in one of the Twilight movie premieres with my other paranormal obsessed friend, handing her my worn paperback copy of Dark Lover and telling her she needed to read about the hot adult vampires 🙂 She quickly devoured it and passed it off to her friend with same suggestion I gave her. I think that book got passed to a lot of people and the Twilight fans got converted to BDB fans. Now we all wait impatiently for the next release in the series!

#Shelfie of my BDB shelf

 

I recently loaned my hardback copy of Dark Lover to a family member who then lost it despite my pleas to be careful with it.  I frantically searched for a replacement copy and couldn’t find one anywhere. They’re now out of print in hardback. Luckily one was recently found and sent to me and now all is right with the world again. I bought a mass market paperback as a placeholder while I was searching soooo I have a new paperback copy to give away with the updated cover. Now that I have the hardback back on my shelf I thought I’d post a giveaway in case anyone hasn’t discovered this series or you’re a fan but don’t have the new cover version and want it. -Cori

Synopsis

imageThe legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues in a spin-off series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author…

Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. the Dhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.

And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated–and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! This book had it all and checked all my requirements plus a few more. I’ll be honest, the last few books in the BDB world just didn’t pull me in like the original stories. This book grabbed me by the neck and wouldn’t let go. I love the fun of a new romance with all the nerves and fumbling around, you add some hot sex and I’m hooked. The training program was perfect and had me tense and wondering how things would turn out but it honed some great new characters. Don’t worry, they aren’t all new, the brothers made it feel like I was coming home without getting bogged down in history. It all just worked with the danger, tension, romance and humor. I will also add that it didn’t get too convoluted and instead was a well thought out story that I plan to read again. Yep. I’m still in their world long after I closed the book.

Cori 5 Stars

The original BDB books are back! I love the BDB series but the first couple books are my favorites. Blood Kiss is the first book in J.R. Ward’s spinoff series, The Black Dagger Legacy. It focuses on the training center and the recruits. Blood Kiss started off with a bang and kept me glued to the pages. I loved the new characters and I loved the brothers leading the training. Butch and Marissa had large parts in the book and we got a lot of the fun banter between the guys. I fell in love with Craeg and I was routing for Paradise. I don’t want to say too much and spoil any of the story so I’ll just say if you’re a BDB fan you’re going to LOVE this new series! When I finished Blood Kiss I felt like I did when I finished Dark Lover. I wanted to read and experience the story again. I wanted to tell all my friends about it and make them read it so I could talk to them about it. It was just that special and epic. I can’t wait for the next book!

TRANSCRIPT FROM J.R. Ward’s Signing posted on her Facebook Page:

A huge THANK YOU!!!!! to everyone who came to the event in Cinci! As promised, we have the transcript from the Q&A. It is full of SPOILERS so if you don’t want to read SPOILERS, don’t read on.
Because there are SPOILERS!!!!!!!! Lots and lots of SPOILERS!!!!
If you are still reading, you must not mind the SPOILERS.

Also, a note from the transcriber: There is a lot going on during the Q&A session and several people are trying to help keep track of the questions, but it’s not always possible. So, if something go missed, it wasn’t intentional and it isn’t meant personally to the person who asked the question. It was just not possible to hear every single thing said. With that note, here is the transcript….

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!

Q: Who is the next book???
A: The title is “The Beast” ….I bet you know who that is about. We were going to do a short story, but there was too much to fit…he was too big to fit in a small….story. (crowd shouts: That’s what she said!)

Q: Can you elaborate on anything that’s going on with Rhage?
A: Ummmmm. He has some survivor’s guilt going on there, and there are some issues that he and Mary have to work out. There’s also one aspect of their life that will come to fruition. (crowd yells: BABY!!!)

Q: It’s more of a comment than a question. There were a lot of haters for The Shadows. For the way it had to happen, you did it perfectly.
A: Well, thank you! I totally understand people’s reactions.

Q: Are we going to see a lot more of s’Ex, the executioner?
A: Oh, yeah, I’m totally in love with s’Ex, too. (Crowd laughs at double entendre.) I want him to have his own book, his own love. I think he’s going to be protective of Trez, and s’Ex probably won’t be going back to the Territories, but I think iAm will definitely be going back and forth.

Q: What’s going on with Rhage? Is he going to be pardoned by the Scribe Virgin and have his curse repealed?
A: B**ch can’t get out of her own head long enough to fix anything. You’re going to have to KR on that.

Q: Can you or will you elaborate on how Xhex became an assassin?
A: I’m not sure what there is to elaborate on. She just came out that way.

Q: How do the Brother’s get the golden retriever hair off them?
A: Can you imagine the doggen? Just wrap one of them in duct tape and rolllllllll.

Q: With the demise of Mr. C., will Lash be coming back?
A: Yes, but we have to get through the next book and we have to get to Xcor and Layla. So, it just means getting to the point where he returns.

Q: With women coming in to the training program, will find out that women were already included, back in the day?
A: There is no back in the day for women (being involved). This is something new.

Q: When are humans finding out that there are vampires?
A: It’s coming. Remember when the sh*t was hitting the fan (Crowd: Which time?) So it’s going to come out that people have been videotaping and posting on Youtube. There was a scene, way back in one of the books, where the kid was videotaping, and it happens this time. So, yeah, that sh*t’s going to get posted.

Q: Back in the day, before they lived in the sanctuary, there were Chosen breeding with the Brothers. Could we find out that the Chosen had offspring by different Brothers?
A: Originally they were only to breed with the Primale. Eventually, they were serving the Brothers with blood and sometimes, they would fall in love and have children. The breeding program is no longer in progress. It is possible that the Chosen had children by more than one Brother.

Q: Have we met Assail’s sibling?
A: That’s a Keep Reading.

Q: Will we find out Craeg’s parentage and is it significant?
A: That’s a Keep Reading, too.

Q: After the introduction of the training program, will there be shellans who want to enter?
A: Probably not, because those who can and want to, like Xhex and Payne, already are.

Q: Are we going to hear more about Payne’s ability to heal?
A: We’re going to learn that her ability to heal costs her more each time she uses it. And, I’m not sure what the answer is, whether she needs to refresh by going to the Sanctuary. Or there’s other consequences.

Q: Are Adrian and Eddie going to be Lassiter’s next assignment?
A: Yes, and Lassiter will get his own book.

Q: I get the drift that Bloodletter is his calling and his handle, but is that his name?
A: Bloodletter is his handle but not his real name. Can you imagine that on his birth certificate? His driver’s license. Why, sir, perhaps you shouldn’t drive….

Q: Was Bloodletter one of the Brothers guarding Wrath the Fair, in The King?
A: Maybe….

Q: Is he related to the Original Brother, who had two lines: Wrath, and perhaps an aristocrat of whom The Bloodletter is of the line?
A: Yes, he was.

Q: Selena said that she would be waiting for Trez and whomever he falls in love with.
A: I think some day that Trez will find someone to love, but it will be a long way off. You have to remember that vampires live five or six hundred years. And Serena gives him permission, says to him that if you find someone, to fall in love and live his life.

Q: Will Devina be in Lassiter’s book?
A: I think she will be in Lash’s book. Even assholes deserve love.

Q: Is Throe the new Havers (as the most hated character)?
A: Oh yeah he has bad juju. There are definitely some things to work out with Throe.

Q: What happens when Throe runs into Xcor?
A: That’s a Keep Reading.

Q: Is Layla going to have both twins?
A: She needs to have those babies. We need to move along because there’s so much more to come after that.

Q: Will De La Cruz be part of the “humans finding out”?
A: Hmm, I think he needs to see Butch again.

Q: You always write about how the males bond and give out their scent, but can it be unrequited?
A: I’m sure that happens.

Q: Now that Selena talked with Luchas about being lucky to alive, does he have a better will to live?
A: I think he does. And I’m sure we’re going to be seeing more of him, I’m just not sure right now which series he’s going to track in, whether it will be the BDB or the Legacy Series.

Q: Since Rhage is all up in his estrogen-fueled feelings, why is not the Beast all, dude, there’s nothing wrong with us, calm the eff down…
A: The Beast is non-verbal. So, not like he can just say that. (crowd laughs at image)

Q: Why is it that the Brothers can’t scent Xcor on Layla and know she’s lying.
A: It’s because she’s pregnant, and it would be disrespectful of them to get close enough to scent her.

Q: About Saxton’s HEA (Happily Ever After), can you tell us the when and who and what book?
A: Cannot answer that. Keep Reading.

Q: If feeding from humans doesn’t give vamps enough strength, like when Z was trying to survive on just human blood, how does Payne keep going feeding from Manny?
A: Payne goes to the other side and that rejuvenates her.

Q: Do we know for sure that Butch and Manny are connected?
A: Yes, they have the same father, and that guy didn’t keep it in his pants, so there may be more of them out there.

Q: Will Murhder be coming back?
A: Yes. I thought he was showing up in this book, but then, he didn’t but I know he comes back. He has to come back. But when he does, the stuff about him and Xhex is going to come up and out, and that’s going to mess with John Matthew’s head. That’s going to be a lot for JM to take.

Q: I’m curious about the sympaths and if we will learn more about them?
A: Weird six finger things. If humans become aggressive toward the Shadows and sympaths, it may become a case of “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Because there is some serious sh*t coming. There is also a penal colony out west that may come into play. To keep the action going, more people have to come into the story. So, I think we’ll see all of those groups getting more involved.

Q: You had said that in honor of the tenth anniversary of Wrath’s release, there would be some sort of party or celebration?
A: With the release schedule for this year, we just couldn’t make it happen. But, maybe next March to celebrate Rhage and the Beast? We’re going to work on something.

Q: I love Godd*mn Cat. Will we find out more about Godd*mn Cat? (This is what iAm calls Boo.)
A: We will, yes.

Q: Will we see more of Fritz and his personal life?
A: He loves his job, but I can’t imagine writing his sex life. Nope….imagine a basset hound…nope…nope.

Q: Will there be a resolution to the death rate amongst females and births?
A: I don’t think so because it’s just part of nature.

Q: Throe went to Xcor to avenge his sister’s death, and the one who saved Tohr was shot in the head, so how can be Throe be Autumn’s brother? (This was a confusing question, and the transcriber may not have gotten the whole thing correct, but the answer is the same.)
A: Keep Reading.

Q: Will we see more of the next generation? (Little Wrath, Nalla, Aggie, etc.)
A: I would love to see what happens when Z finds out Nalla has a boyfriend. But I don’t know how that would work. Would they be set in the future? Not sure yet.

Q: Will there be weeding out of the Bastards?

A: Oh, yeah, there will be. Leaky, messy, with a weed eater weeding.

Q: What’s with all the twins?

A: There are a whole lot of twins. I’m interested in what’s going on. Just the other day, I was like, wow, there’s a whole lot of twins in here. I know, I know, I is slow.

Q: Can we get a pronunciation guide?

A: Maybe, we’ll have to think on that.

Q: I thought John Matthew knew about Butch and Xhex? (having slept together)

A: I think JM is going to have a hard time with it.

Q: Is JM a Brother?

A: Not yet but he will be; I just don’t know when.

Q: Is Wrath ever going to see his son?

A: No, he’s blind and there’s no fixing it.

Q: Layla is having twins. Will that be a problem with the birth and one won’t be ready?
A: Welll…(there was a lot of side chatter that ended with): But I promised I was finished killing people and that both would make it…

Q: Now that iAm and Boo are BFFs, now that iAm’s not at home as much, will Boo go Ninja cat?
A: Boo will have separation anxiety.

Q: Why did Qhuinn only see one twin? (In his vision)
A: I would answer that, but I can’t.

Q: The Scribe Virgin has been missing. Why did she decide to make herself known when she did? (In The Shadows)
A: I think because she knew the suffering Selena’s death was causing, and that she felt motivated which I find interesting. Someone said that if, as a deity, if no one is worshipping you, then you are as good as dead. So maybe she’s realizing that. And you know the most logical person for her to end up with?? (Crowd shouts: Lassiter) Right, so Vishous would be his stepson. That sh*t is hysterical. Call me Daddy! (crowd roars)

Q: Vampires usually have one mate, so when Tohr goes to the Fade is it going to be like Sister Wives?
A: Yep, just like Sister Wives. Tonight is your night, tomorrow’s yours. I’m gonna divorce you to give the fourth wife healthcare….(laughter)

Q: Saxton’s HEA, could it be one of the recruits?
A:You’re just trying to get me to say! I know who it is. Just not telling you.

Q: With Layla, Xcor, and the twins, will they break the kids up?
A: Hell no. The solution is there, it’s just going to take us a while to get there.

Q: Can you tell us if there is one boy one girl?
A: I’m not saying.

Q: What is going on with the Scribe Virgin? We saw her for a hot second but what’s going on with her?
A: She needs to get laid in the worst way. She needs to run off to the Bahamas with Lassiter and watch Beaches and Maury.

Q: About the Legacy series and opening with Blood Kiss. Will there be a signing event?
A: Yes.

Q: Did I hear that Phury and Cormia have a son?
A: Aggie is Phury and Cormia’s son, yes.

Q: Process question: Do you write scenes down as they come, if they’re for the future?
A: No, it stays in my head. I also have a research assistant who helps keep things straight. Occasionally, we make mistakes but I don’t write it down.

Q: We know Butch and Manny are brothers. Could they be related to Michael in the Story of Son?
A: It wouldn’t surprise me if Michael was related to Murhder, with the hair. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Clare and Michael’s kids come into the BDB stories sometime in the future.

Q: Does Layla make it through the pregnancy?
A: Yes, she does.

Q: Are Cormia and Phury ready to have a baby?
A: Yes, they are.

Q: Are we going to get more Brothers coming through the training program and how?
A: Chosen will fall in love and have more children.

Q: So about the V, Lassiter, Throe conflict?
A: I can’t say anything about that.

Q: Layla’s babies, could one be Xcor’s and one be Qhuinn’s?
A: No, that’s not possible.

Q: Does Butch get sick of V’s music?
A: You wouldn’t win an argument with V over the lint in your own bellybutton, so Butch has gotten over it. And is probably deaf now.

Q: Butch needs a vampire little sister.
A: He’s great with kids, but I don’t see a sister right now.

Q: So, in the Legacy Series, we’ll have basic training flashbacks?
A: Yep, basically.

Q: I was glad that Trez got closure (by getting to see Selena in the Fade).
A: I knew that Trez had to go through the Cleansing, but I didn’t realize the purpose when I saw the scene. I thought it was wonderful that Trez was talking to Selena, even after she was gone. And, Trez had to come back in order for iAm to have his moment with maichen.

Q: Will we see a cure for this genetic disease?
A: I don’t know but this is the problem with a breeding program that has a limited gene pool.

Q: Will we see Butch and Marissa in Blood Kiss?
A: Yes, but we won’t see them have kids yet.

Q: Will Paradise be the only female in the training program?
A: Nope.

Q: Will we ever get movies?
A: The rights have been purchased for The Bourbon Kings and the BDB is being looked at again.

Q: Will JM and Blay be inducted into the BDB?
A: Yes but I don’t know when.

Q: Would you build the mansion, based on the images in your head?
A: I would love to have a miniature model built someday.

Q: Could you do more Slices of Life?
A: I don’t know about that or another Insider’s Guide. There just isn’t time.

Q: There will be a signing for the Bourbon Kings, and for The Training Center Legacy Series?
A: Yes, end of July for The Bourbon Kings, possibly something in Nashville and sometime in December for Bloodkiss.

Q: They consulted with Havers about twins and that sometimes the second twin develops late. You slipped a line in about triplets being rare…is she going to have trips?
A: Nope.

Q: Will there be sisters inducted in BDB?
A: Yes.

Q: Back to Rhage’s mood issues. Could it be his dragon curse and the Chosen’s moods?
A: Nope, it’s survivor’s guilt. It’s almost impossible for him to get over the fact that Mary was saved and these other shellans weren’t. There is some sh*t for Mary and him to work out…but it will be fine. Women are really attracted to him. He sees no one but Mary, but if it were a matter of he’d been with another woman when they first got together, and for her there’s a kernel of insecurity, that’s going to have to come out.

Q: iAm is going to spend a lot of time in the Territory and Trez will be with the Brothers. Is it possible that Trez will become a Brother?
A: I think that might be a great solution for him. He’s definitely going to need something to focus on.

Q: You said that the Legacy series would be more focused, and you mentioned Butch and then Paradise and Craeg, so where’s the focus?
A: It would be split between Butch and then Paradise and Craeg. The Legacy series is a great opportunity for more traditional HEA (Happily Ever After) and to focus on the original Brothers and more details of their lives that I just can’t show in the bigger books.

Q: Do you have any advice for writers?
A: Runnnnn! Save yourself!!! Seriously, though, don’t listen to anyone. Write what’s in your head. I don’t believe in critique groups or creative writing classes. Don’t listen to anyone, including me. When in doubt write. Write even when you thinks its crap. Next piece of advice: educate yourself. Pick books you like and deconstruct them. Get a pad and pen and go through these books and decide what did you like. What worked? What did you like? What didn’t you like? This develops your inner editor, then apply that to your own work. The voices in your head and the pictures in your head will always be there. Don’t worry.

Q: How are Butch and Manny related?
A: They are half-brothers. They have the same father.

Thank you to everyone who came today!

TRANSCRIPT FROM J.R. Ward’s Signing posted on her Facebook Page:

A huge THANK YOU!!!!! to everyone who came to the event in Cinci! As promised, we have the transcript from the Q&A. It is full of SPOILERS so if you don’t want to read SPOILERS, don’t read on.
Because there are SPOILERS!!!!!!!! Lots and lots of SPOILERS!!!!
If you are still reading, you must not mind the SPOILERS.

Also, a note from the transcriber: There is a lot going on during the Q&A session and several people are trying to help keep track of the questions, but it’s not always possible. So, if something go missed, it wasn’t intentional and it isn’t meant personally to the person who asked the question. It was just not possible to hear every single thing said. With that note, here is the transcript….

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!

A: I think she will be in Lash’s book. Even assholes deserve love.

Q: Is Throe the new Havers (as the most hated character)?
A: Oh yeah he has bad juju. There are definitely some things to work out with Throe.

Q: What happens when Throe runs into Xcor?
A: That’s a Keep Reading.

A: She needs to have those babies. We need to move along because there’s so much more to come after that.

Q: Will De La Cruz be part of the “humans finding out”?
A: Hmm, I think he needs to see Butch again.

Q: You always write about how the males bond and give out their scent, but can it be unrequited?

A: I think he does. And I’m sure we’re going to be seeing more of him, I’m just not sure right now which series he’s going to track in, whether it will be the BDB or the Legacy Series.

Q: Since Rhage is all up in his estrogen-fueled feelings, why is not the Beast all, dude, there’s nothing wrong with us, calm the eff down…
A: The Beast is non-verbal. So, not like he can just say that. (crowd laughs at image)

Q: Why is it that the Brothers can’t scent Xcor on Layla and know she’s lying.
A: It’s because she’s pregnant, and it would be disrespectful of them to get close enough to scent her.

Q: About Saxton’s HEA (Happily Ever After), can you tell us the when and who and what book?
A: Cannot answer that. Keep Reading.

Q: If feeding from humans doesn’t give vamps enough strength, like when Z was trying to survive on just human blood, how does Payne keep going feeding from Manny?
A: Payne goes to the other side and that rejuvenates her.

Q: Do we know for sure that Butch and Manny are connected?
A: Yes, they have the same father, and that guy didn’t keep it in his pants, so there may be more of them out there.

Q: Will Murhder be coming back?
A: Yes. I thought he was showing up in this book, but then, he didn’t but I know he comes back. He has to come back. But when he does, the stuff about him and Xhex is going to come up and out, and that’s going to mess with John Matthew’s head. That’s going to be a lot for JM to take.

Q: I’m curious about the sympaths and if we will learn more about them?
A: Weird six finger things. If humans become aggressive toward the Shadows and sympaths, it may become a case of “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Because there is some serious sh*t coming. There is also a penal colony out west that may come into play. To keep the action going, more people have to come into the story. So, I think we’ll see all of those groups getting more involved.

Q: You had said that in honor of the tenth anniversary of Wrath’s release, there would be some sort of party or celebration?
A: With the release schedule for this year, we just couldn’t make it happen. But, maybe next March to celebrate Rhage and the Beast? We’re going to work on something.

Q: I love Godd*mn Cat. Will we find out more about Godd*mn Cat? (This is what iAm calls Boo.)
A: We will, yes.

Q: Will we see more of Fritz and his personal life?
A: He loves his job, but I can’t imagine writing his sex life. Nope….imagine a basset hound…nope…nope.

Q: Will there be a resolution to the death rate amongst females and births?
A: I don’t think so because it’s just part of nature.

Q: Throe went to Xcor to avenge his sister’s death, and the one who saved Tohr was shot in the head, so how can be Throe be Autumn’s brother? (This was a confusing question, and the transcriber may not have gotten the whole thing correct, but the answer is the same.)
A: Keep Reading.

Q: Will we see more of the next generation? (Little Wrath, Nalla, Aggie, etc.)
A: I would love to see what happens when Z finds out Nalla has a boyfriend. But I don’t know how that would work. Would they be set in the future? Not sure yet.

Q: Will there be weeding out of the Bastards?

A: Oh, yeah, there will be. Leaky, messy, with a weed eater weeding.

Q: What’s with all the twins?

A: There are a whole lot of twins. I’m interested in what’s going on. Just the other day, I was like, wow, there’s a whole lot of twins in here. I know, I know, I is slow.

Q: Can we get a pronunciation guide?

A: Maybe, we’ll have to think on that.

Q: I thought John Matthew knew about Butch and Xhex? (having slept together)

A: I think JM is going to have a hard time with it.

Q: Is JM a Brother?

A: Not yet but he will be; I just don’t know when.

Q: Is Wrath ever going to see his son?

A: No, he’s blind and there’s no fixing it.

Q: Layla is having twins. Will that be a problem with the birth and one won’t be ready?
A: Welll…(there was a lot of side chatter that ended with): But I promised I was finished killing people and that both would make it…

Q: Now that iAm and Boo are BFFs, now that iAm’s not at home as much, will Boo go Ninja cat?
A: Boo will have separation anxiety.

Q: Why did Qhuinn only see one twin? (In his vision)
A: I would answer that, but I can’t.

Q: The Scribe Virgin has been missing. Why did she decide to make herself known when she did? (In The Shadows)
A: I think because she knew the suffering Selena’s death was causing, and that she felt motivated which I find interesting. Someone said that if, as a deity, if no one is worshipping you, then you are as good as dead. So maybe she’s realizing that. And you know the most logical person for her to end up with?? (Crowd shouts: Lassiter) Right, so Vishous would be his stepson. That sh*t is hysterical. Call me Daddy! (crowd roars)

Q: Vampires usually have one mate, so when Tohr goes to the Fade is it going to be like Sister Wives?
A: Yep, just like Sister Wives. Tonight is your night, tomorrow’s yours. I’m gonna divorce you to give the fourth wife healthcare….(laughter)

Q: Saxton’s HEA, could it be one of the recruits?
A:You’re just trying to get me to say! I know who it is. Just not telling you.

Q: With Layla, Xcor, and the twins, will they break the kids up?
A: Hell no. The solution is there, it’s just going to take us a while to get there.

Q: Can you tell us if there is one boy one girl?
A: I’m not saying.

Q: What is going on with the Scribe Virgin? We saw her for a hot second but what’s going on with her?
A: She needs to get laid in the worst way. She needs to run off to the Bahamas with Lassiter and watch Beaches and Maury.

Q: About the Legacy series and opening with Blood Kiss. Will there be a signing event?
A: Yes.

Q: Did I hear that Phury and Cormia have a son?
A: Aggie is Phury and Cormia’s son, yes.

Q: Process question: Do you write scenes down as they come, if they’re for the future?
A: No, it stays in my head. I also have a research assistant who helps keep things straight. Occasionally, we make mistakes but I don’t write it down.

Q: We know Butch and Manny are brothers. Could they be related to Michael in the Story of Son?
A: It wouldn’t surprise me if Michael was related to Murhder, with the hair. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Clare and Michael’s kids come into the BDB stories sometime in the future.

Q: Does Layla make it through the pregnancy?
A: Yes, she does.

Q: Are Cormia and Phury ready to have a baby?
A: Yes, they are.

Q: Are we going to get more Brothers coming through the training program and how?
A: Chosen will fall in love and have more children.

Q: So about the V, Lassiter, Throe conflict?
A: I can’t say anything about that.

Q: Layla’s babies, could one be Xcor’s and one be Qhuinn’s?
A: No, that’s not possible.

Q: Does Butch get sick of V’s music?
A: You wouldn’t win an argument with V over the lint in your own bellybutton, so Butch has gotten over it. And is probably deaf now.

Q: Butch needs a vampire little sister.
A: He’s great with kids, but I don’t see a sister right now.

Q: So, in the Legacy Series, we’ll have basic training flashbacks?
A: Yep, basically.

Q: I was glad that Trez got closure (by getting to see Selena in the Fade).
A: I knew that Trez had to go through the Cleansing, but I didn’t realize the purpose when I saw the scene. I thought it was wonderful that Trez was talking to Selena, even after she was gone. And, Trez had to come back in order for iAm to have his moment with maichen.

Q: Will we see a cure for this genetic disease?
A: I don’t know but this is the problem with a breeding program that has a limited gene pool.

Q: Will we see Butch and Marissa in Blood Kiss?
A: Yes, but we won’t see them have kids yet.

Q: Will Paradise be the only female in the training program?
A: Nope.

Q: Will we ever get movies?
A: The rights have been purchased for The Bourbon Kings and the BDB is being looked at again.

Q: Will JM and Blay be inducted into the BDB?
A: Yes but I don’t know when.

Q: Would you build the mansion, based on the images in your head?
A: I would love to have a miniature model built someday.

Q: Could you do more Slices of Life?
A: I don’t know about that or another Insider’s Guide. There just isn’t time.

Q: There will be a signing for the Bourbon Kings, and for The Training Center Legacy Series?
A: Yes, end of July for The Bourbon Kings, possibly something in Nashville and sometime in December for Bloodkiss.

Q: They consulted with Havers about twins and that sometimes the second twin develops late. You slipped a line in about triplets being rare…is she going to have trips?
A: Nope.

Q: Will there be sisters inducted in BDB?
A: Yes.

Q: Back to Rhage’s mood issues. Could it be his dragon curse and the Chosen’s moods?
A: Nope, it’s survivor’s guilt. It’s almost impossible for him to get over the fact that Mary was saved and these other shellans weren’t. There is some sh*t for Mary and him to work out…but it will be fine. Women are really attracted to him. He sees no one but Mary, but if it were a matter of he’d been with another woman when they first got together, and for her there’s a kernel of insecurity, that’s going to have to come out.

Q: iAm is going to spend a lot of time in the Territory and Trez will be with the Brothers. Is it possible that Trez will become a Brother?
A: I think that might be a great solution for him. He’s definitely going to need something to focus on.

Q: You said that the Legacy series would be more focused, and you mentioned Butch and then Paradise and Craeg, so where’s the focus?
A: It would be split between Butch and then Paradise and Craeg. The Legacy series is a great opportunity for more traditional HEA (Happily Ever After) and to focus on the original Brothers and more details of their lives that I just can’t show in the bigger books.

Q: Do you have any advice for writers?
A: Runnnnn! Save yourself!!! Seriously, though, don’t listen to anyone. Write what’s in your head. I don’t believe in critique groups or creative writing classes. Don’t listen to anyone, including me. When in doubt write. Write even when you thinks its crap. Next piece of advice: educate yourself. Pick books you like and deconstruct them. Get a pad and pen and go through these books and decide what did you like. What worked? What did you like? What didn’t you like? This develops your inner editor, then apply that to your own work. The voices in your head and the pictures in your head will always be there. Don’t worry.

Q: How are Butch and Manny related?
A: They are half-brothers. They have the same father.

Thank you to everyone who came today!

The Shadows

A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood

SYNOPSIS

Two brothers bound by more than blood fight to change a brutal destiny in the heart-wrenching new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward.

Trez “Latimer” doesn’t really exist.  And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world.  Sold by his parents to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, Trez escaped the Territory and has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years- all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude.  He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on… except for his brother, iAm.

iAm’s sole goal has always been to keep his brother from self-destructing- and he knows he’s failed.  It’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around… but by then it’s too late.  The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating.

Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others- or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with.  But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything.  Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever.  And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice…

REVIEW

Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/Donna

Rated: 5 Stars

I wish I could score this higher than a 5 because I am still lost in this book and can’t let go.  It hit every one of my buttons and emotions so that I was laughing one minute and crying the next.  I had to get up and walk around a few times to get myself under control in order to continue.  All the BDB characters were there to back up the Shadows and deal with their own problems in true Brotherhood fashion.  I cannot be more specific on the story as it is something you must go through yourself.  All I will say is life isn’t always perfect, crap happens and even books should be realistic on showing that things don’t always work out the way we want and show the strength of character to face adversity. Suffice it to say, it is a book to remember and I loved it all.  The story wove several viewpoints seamlessly and opened the way to her new series which I think I’m going to like.  It also touched on Xcor and Layla’s ongoing struggles but none of that overshadowed Trez and iAm’s story.  I will be rereading this book and anxiously awaiting the next installment.

J.R. Ward’s # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?

20140410-081933.jpg
BDB fans wait impatiently all year for the next book in this incredible series and The King did not disappoint! I loved it! Without giving too much away because these books are best read spoiler free we got to hear Wrath’s parent’s story and I completely fell in love with his father. We also got the side stories of three other potential couples. I’m looking forward to all of them. J.R. Ward announced at her signing that the next book will be titled The Shadows and will include Trez and iAm’s stories. I loved this second look at Wrath and Beth’s relationship, all the hotness that comes with it and their struggle with whether to have a baby. This series is so incredibly addicting and I think it’s because it’s emotional, action packed, suspenseful and incredibly hot. They always leave me wanting more and The King was no exception. I can’t wait for the next book!

20140410-082016.jpg
I truly enjoyed the book and was unable to put it down. I don’t want to give too much away on the story but the intrigue and emotional situations had me tense one moment and relieved the next. Which is always a good thing. I loved Wrath’s father! I will however, go out on a limb and say that I almost wish she had written Wrath and Beth as a side story and focused on someone new. Or narrowed the number of side-stories down to just a few, so those stories could be told in greater detail. That being said, I laughed, cried and bit my lip on more than one occasion and I want to read it again soon. It’s a shame that we have to wait a year to see what happens to them all.
