More Scoop on J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood’s Lover Reborn

This past weekend, J.R. Ward did a book signing in upstate New York, signing copies of Lover Unleashed and taking Black Dagger Brotherhood and Fallen Angels series questions.

Thanks to reporting from BDBObsessed and ObscuredVixen, we now have more than just Lover Reborn Speculation about Tohrment’s book. Here are some of the highlights; click through to the respective blogs to get all the details.

(Envy is released September 6, while we have to wait until the end of next March for Lover Reborn).

Ward still hasn’t revealed who Tohrment’s mate is, but did say this book takes place over the course of a year, rather than the shorter time periods of other books, because Tohr just wouldn’t fall head over heels in love within a few days because he still loves Wellsie.

She’s introducing a new “old school” (a la Wrath) vampire named Assail in Lover Reborn. According to Ward, “Assail is the shit!”

Qhuinn and Blay will not get a HEA in Tohr’s book. She said, instead, that there will be angst between then, and if you pay close attention three-quarters of the way through Lover Reborn, you’ll be able to figure out how things will be solved.

There’s going to be a threesome in Envy, and the BDB makes a cameo appearance in Envy, driving an Escalade 80 MPH on the highway while blasting hip-hop. Of course.

Rhage and Mary will be the focus of a future novella, which is about three-quarters written.

Lassiter will be getting his own book as part of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Megan - I'm a rabid BDB fan and these little sneak peaks/tid bits are driving me mad with the torture of waiting. At this point I'll take the BDB stopping by the 7Eleven for a coke in Envy just so I can get a fix.

I am so behind in my reading of the BDB - the last two books. WAAAAAA! Too many good books out there taking up my time and I've been distracted. Must catch up over the winter. Oh, and my daughters keep giving me grandchildren Six, all under the age of 5!!!!

Assail is the shit? Sometimes, just sometimes, I become weary, after six+ years, of the way things are described in this world. Don't get me wrong, I love the BDB heart and soul, but I ... gah.
