Here are a few highlights from J.R. Ward's Q&A at today's Cincinnati signing.
Warning: There are a few spoilers if you haven't read "The King" yet.
We have not met iAm's mate yet.
There will be a new series. Not a spin-off of BDB. She did not say what it would be.
iAm will have sex in the next book.
Still only anticipating one book per year even though Fallen Angels is ending.
We will see more of Murhder and Aggie.
Lucas will end up with someone, not Abalone's daughter.
She wants there to be more for Z than where he is now but she doesn't know what it could be yet.
JM will become a brother.
She doesn't see JM figuring out that he's Darius.
Ward has next 3 books planned.
Something dire has to happen to bring Scribe Virgin back, but she will be back. Her role and world have changed for now.
Mary and Rhage are having a kid... probably.
The S'hile Queen is pregnant, by S'ex.
Selena has a disease of The Chosen, a genetic mutation from limited gene pool.
Lassiter will have his own book
Sola and Assail will get back together.
Assail's twin brothers will get mate's too.
The series is still open, no end in sight.
Best scene to come with Sola's grandmother will be her cooking with ghost peppers and the twins eating raw peppers... she'll know somethings not right.
Assail is selling drugs to the enemy which puts him in a difficult spot.
Lessers getting money banked up.
Manny will never be turned.
Butch and Jose will get closure... has to do with the lesser Xcor killed and left in alley which was then found by humans.
She has a feeling the BDB mansion could get raided.
Creator in the Fallen Angels series is the father of the Scribe Virgin and the Omega.
Payne can't fix Wrath's eyesight.
Still won't say what was in the lock box that was found when they rescued Lucas from the barrel.
Speculated if Wrath's blindness is due to inbreeding (small gene pool for glymera) or due to Anha's poisoning while pregnant.
Last scene of Immortal (Fallen Angels series) will show Lassiter's purpose.
Payne will still always be able to go up and recharge in sanctuary to keep Manny preserved.
Moors versus Shadows versus s'Hisbe are all the same, just different cultural names.
Something from Lover Reborn was single most important thing for Xcor.
Scene between Wrath and Thor that we don't see... she said was too personal to write, she didn't want to intrude.
Throe's sister is lynch pin about which two characters spin... they are linked to her.
Autumn (No 'One) is not Throe's sister.
Glymera not happy with their forced retirement.
Will see more of Rehv and Ehlena in the future.
Qhuinn and Blay will get their names on each other's backs.
No BDB movies in the works.
Xhex is one of her favorites.
Abalone's daughter will get a mate but doesn't know who yet. She will be adopted by the BDB like a little sister.
Payne's ability is going away, possibly permanent.
Assail is a pure vampire.
As Xcor is softening, Throe is building up and it's making her nervous.
The Chosen are fluctuating between the sanctuary and the camp.
If Wrath died, Butch would be next in line according to old laws.
Lash will be back. His girlfriend is Devina from Fallen Angels series!
We've already met Saxton's HEA and it's not iAm or Lassiter.
