All you fellow BDB fans out there are probably already on the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next Black Dagger Brotherhood novel!  Few details have been shared about this twelfth book, other than it’s about the danger to Wrath’s reign and his and Beth’s efforts to have a baby, so we still have plenty to look forward to. The rumor mill is already flying, so make sure to check back as we keep you posted on the latest fact reveals!

Here’s the newly unveiled cover for your viewing pleasure!  What do you think?

The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood #12) by J.R. Ward

Pre-Order on Amazon Now: Hardcover | Kindle

Does this do Wrath justice?  I definitely see some missing details.  What do you think should have been added to make this cover more “Wrath”?

What's your reaction?
Love it, have it!
Sounds fun
Thinkin' 'bout it
Bleh, no.

    It’s a gorgeous cover. I only wish they had him wear wrap around sunglasses because Wrath is never without them..

    I love the cover and can’t wait for the book, but I definitely think that while it’s beautiful and all, he could be more…”Wrath”. As Susan above said, needs the sunglasses, but also show the long hair. He’s usually got it down because Beth loves it so. And someone on Facebook made a reasonable comment, where’s George? That one I can live without because it would take away from the “edge”, you know?

    I still love it though! I’m such a Wrath fangirl that when a friend pointed out that the cover was revealed, I went all nerdy and couldn’t stop thinking about it all day 😛

    Oh wow. I’m excited for the new book, but definitely missing a real Wrath on the cover. You can’t have Wrath without the sunglasses. Beth is the only one who gets to see him that way! I can forgive the hair being pulled back, even though he does wear it down most of the time these days to please Beth. I think George could have been included without taking away from Wrath’s sexiness, too. Also, where are his tats? The Brotherhood brand on his chest? Lots of details missing that make Wrath so notable. I hope it is no indication of how the book’s content is going to be! Do we have a tentative release date for it yet? I haven’t seen it anywhere for pre-order.
