THE CHOSEN – A J.R. Ward Event: Highlights

VIP guests were treated to a cover cookie and BDB stadium cup alongside their autographed copies of THE CHOSEN.

The WARDen’s back! And this time she’s here to talk about another controversial storyline: Xcor and Layla!

On a sunny Saturday afternoon in downtown Cincinnati where we lay our scene…

Many questions are simmering behind the 650 pairs of eyes of the room.

But only one is the most asked question of ย all:

What is the next book?

THE THIEF!

And it will be Sola and Assail’s story! It will deal with the bloodslave that was found and it will affect Z greatly.

What the fuck is going on with V and Jane?

“If he hadn’t had only one ball, I would’ve taken it from him.”

Does he cheat? Physically or emotionally?

No, but it will get ugly.
V will show up in The Thief.

Why did Quinn have such a visceral reaction to Layla’s secret?

There needs to be lowest of the lows as well as the highs in these stories. There can’t always be middle ground.

Quinn and his reaction to Lyrics was Ward’s hardest part to write in The Chosen.

The Bastards are moving in!ย 

They will now be interwoven into the books and will eventually get their own books. Ward’s most excited for what she finds out about Sin!

The WARDen laughs as her faithful readers ask some outrageous questions!

Is Throe and his book and shadow friends related to Devina?ย 

YES! Devina is at the bottom of a well and she needs another vessel. We will see Eddie and Adrian as well!


Lassiter is now all powerful
and he brought in the Lessers knowing that the Brotherhood needed to be rid of them in order to be ready for what’s coming next: Devina.

Will there ever be another Insider Guide?

“It’s about time.” She is also going to speak with her publisher about getting a few novellas out for backstories, i.e. Scribe Virgin’s becoming.

Will the BDB ever end?

No! As long as it’s possible they will go on!

The WARDen’s swooping signature on the hundreds of copies handed out.

Will there ever be more small series like The Bourbon Kings?
Yes, but she can’t tell us yet!
Bourbon kings will wrap up in book 3. And EVERYTHING does get wrapped up.

Lassiter is bound to keep all of the promises The Scribe Virgin made.

Lassiter is getting a book!

Muhrder is coming back.

Novo, of the Legacy series, will be our next tough female heroine.

We will be seeing more of Harhm’s “extended family”.

Lassiter did have to sacrifice something in order to “bring back” Selena.


Will Terese know about Selena and her connection?

No, one other person besides Lassiter WILL find out.

The WARDen focusing on a reader’s question.

The Bastards will be inducted into the Brotherhood.

Lash will be coming back.

In regards to the Dehstroyer prophecy: due to The Scribe Virgin’s power shift to Lassiter, there will be a power shift in The Omega.

Luchas will be back; possibly in the Legacy series.

The coffins! Keep reading and we will find out what they mean. “It’s creepy as shit.”

WOLFEN! It’s someone we know!!!

Ideally, Ward would like to do a “focused, in the future” series on all of the children; including Nalla, L.W., Rhamp, and Lyric.

Is there a reason Nalla is having nightmares with shadows, especially now with Throe and his book?ย 

Keep reading…she has a special skill ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finally the secret of Boo is REVEALED!!

“BOO IS THE SCRIBE VIRGIN! She’s been with them all along and she’s with them still.”

RandomHouse, Ward’s publisher, raffled off prize bags at the end of the event.
