*Warning: Spoilers if you are not current on the
series up until "Lover at Last."*
J.R. Ward had a book signing event in Ohio yesterday and, as she usually does right after a new release, she did a little Q&A session as well. The main question that everyone has been waiting to get answered... Who will the next book be about? Turns out that the next book will be about Wrath and Beth, titled "The King," which is expected to be released in the spring of 2014. Some people are very excited about getting more of this couple and their quest to have a child while others feel that we've "been there, done that" with this couple. What are your thoughts?
Butch will be getting another book and she is expecting others to as well. Sola, Assail's love interested, is completely human. Throe may have family alive. Saxton will play a key role in an upcoming plot line. Lash will be back. Quinn and Blay will be getting a mating ceremony but she's unsure of the time frame. Phury's future is tied up with the Scribe Virgin. We will be getting more of Trez and Selena's story. J.R. Ward also answered the question from Tohr's book about why there was no bonding scent. She basically said he had already bonded with Wellsie but maybe in the future it may happen. We will find out more in the future of how the Quinn/Blay/Layla/Xcor situation will work out. Layla will be considered fallen. BOB contact is Saxton's father. We may learn more about the 16 empty coffins in "The King." And finally, the rumor is that Layla will give the baby to Quinn and Blay.
Oh, and the best news of all (for me)... Rhage and Mary's baby story will be coming soon! She's 146 pages in at this point. He's my favorite :)
