Impatiently Waiting For... The King by JR Ward

Are there any BDB lovers in the house????? I am a massive fan of JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood! I can't believe we're already on book 12 (twelve!) after almost 9 years (nine!!!), and still the Cellies remain strong! =D I have never seen a more rabid and dedicate fanbase than JR Ward's Cellies. In all honesty and without bias. If someone says something negative about a beloved character or the books in general, the fans would immediately and outspokenly defend their favorite series. People travel from all over the country and line up outside the venue from dawn whenever Ward goes on a signing. It's crazy, and I love it. =) I've met really cool people because of this series, and some have been my FB friends for around five years now! Gosh...

Now with book 12, it's a celebration for every Cellie out there in the world because we're going back full circle to the vampire whose story started it all in Dark Lover. The one and only King, Wrath, son of Wrath!

Release Date: April 1, 2014
The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #12)
The King
by J.R. Ward
Book 12 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series

J.R. Ward's # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

If you've been following the series all these years, just like me you'll have tons of questions you want answered...
  • Who's the dematerializing lesser?? (please don't say Lash...)
  • Will Wrath and Beth have a baby boy or baby girl?
  • Will the child be more human or more vampire?
  • How will a half-breed son of the King ascend to the throne when it has been their law that only pureblooded males can be the king of the species? (seriously, they need to amend this law already seeing as Wrath is the last with the purest blood in the entire race!)
  • Can Saxton find a solution for this problem in time to prevent any plots of uprising?
  • Will Assail rescue Sola before any harm can fall upon her?
  • What will become of Layla and Xcor?
  • How will Qhuinn, and I guess Blay too, react to Layla's apparent pairing with the Band of Bastards' ringleader?
  • Will the BOB remain enemies with the BDB, or will they finally join forces against the strengthening powers of the Omega and the lessers?
  • When will John Matthew be inducted into the brotherhood??? (I am a JM fan, lol so even though the Warden has stated he won't be inducted in this book, I'm crossing my fingers. Any ardent fan knows that anything can happen, and that things may change in the course of her writing =D)
  • What's up with the Moors?
  • What's up with Rehvenge and his kingdom of sympaths?
  • Will Muhrder finally make an appearance? And if he will, how will Xhex and JM react??? (shit would hit the fan, I'm sure!)
  • When will Rhage and Mary's baby novella be released??? (this one's quite overdue already, if you ask me...)
I could go on and on and on with questions like these. We might now be on book 12, but the series is showing no signs of stopping. If anything, it seems to be gearing up for even more action!

Just like with the questions, there are also so many things I wish to see in The King. Things like more interactions among the shellans (I'm particularly curious how warriors Xhex and Payne behave in the company of the more feminine Mary, Marissa, and Cormia),  more Fritz :), V and Butch making another potato launcher LOL, more interaction between Qhuinn, Blay and JM (I had expected JM to be more prominent in LAL because of his close friendship with these two, but I was sorely disappointed :( I want to be reassured they are still tight!), and of course, the Scribe Virgin! She's been MIA far too long. She's not the nicest character, but we cannot deny how cool she is when she's displaying her power and might!

Okay, this has gone on far too long, LOL! Suffice to say I'm really, really excited for The King! If any of you readers happen to be a Cellie, don't hesitate to leave a comment, please! Tell me what else are you excited for in this book, any questions you want answered. I'm curious what you guys also think!
