And “at last” is right—for books now, Ward fans have been clamoring for the story of Qhuinn and Blaylock—aka Qhuay—and in late March, Ward announced the next book would, indeed, be that of Qhuinn and Blaylock.
Qhuinn has been the dominant voice in the couple (not that way—we’re talking story-wise!), so one can only presume that is Qhuinn’s image on the cover.
Lover At Last, if it follows other Black Dagger Brotherhood books, should be released in March 2013 in hardcover.
Do you like the cover? Are you one of the ardent Qhuay fans? Or are you more interested in Layla, Saxton, Lassiter, et al.?
