One good thing about J.R. Ward is that we get to see the covers of her books early. Really early. Her next Black Dagger Brotherhood book is called The Beast, and it is a return to Rhage’s story. It will be released on April 5th.
His name is Rhage—the deadliest fighter and most voracious lover of all the Brotherhood, whose inner beast could never be tamed. But Rhage found his eternal love in Mary Luce, a woman who once bore a life-threatening curse, while dreaming of eternity with her vampire warrior and protector.
They’ve made it to hell and back. Now their story continues in a new novel sure to draw fans back into the “frighteningly addictive” (Publishers Weekly) world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
I like. They brought the pretty with this one, and while I was a bit hesitant about a return to the original brothers, the idea is slowly growing on me. The “main” couple plays such a small role in the overall scheme of things that I don’t think it really matters who the story is officially considered to be about.
