“Assail & Sola Are Going to Rock Your World!” in J.R. Ward’s The Thief

Black Dagger Brotherhood creator J.R. Ward has announced the title of the next installment of the popular paranormal series—The Thief—and also revealed the identity of the 2018 book's main couple—Sola (aka Marisol) and Assail! 

And now that book has a gorgeous cover! J.R. Ward revealed the cover over at PopSugar and author Lisa Renee Jones interviewed her to get the scoop on what's to come. Our favorite line “Assail and Sola are going to rock your world.” Ward went on to say that there's still plenty of drama and intrigue—we can't wait. 

Earlier this year at a release day signing for her new BDB book The Chosen in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ward dished out some spoilers about what the future holds. Watch the reveal for yourself in the video below:

Stay tuned for more scoop as we get it—we'll be back to update the post!

Back in 2013, H&H reviewer Chelsea Mueller speculated about Assail and Sola and if they'd get their own book, writing:

[And then there's] Old Country vampire and drug dealer Assail and his bounty hunter Sola. In Lover at Last these two play a cat-and-mouse game that turns up the heat. While I’m not invested in Assail personally yet, I’m positive there would be insane heat between these two. Even the kiss in Lover at Last was hot. Imagine if they got the 700-page treatment. Scorching.

Updated with more scoop: Wondering if Lassiter will ever get his own book? According to fan @Davies_Bets, who live-tweeted the event, when Ward is finally ready to see him naked! Oh, and Qhuinn's brother will probably get his own book in the Black Dagger Legacy spinoff series.

Plus: Not ready to talk about future books yet? Don't worry, we still have much to discuss about the wild events of The Chosen. Come share your review of the book and see what fellow fans are saying in our The Chosen discussion thread (warning: major spoilers in the comments).
