Enter the world of the Avengers’ iconic master spy…
Natasha Romanoff is one of the world’s most lethal assassins. Trained from a young age in the arts of death and deception, Natasha was given the title of Black Widow by Ivan Somodorov, her brutal teacher at the Red Room, Moscow’s infamous academy for operatives.
Ava Orlova is just trying to fit in as an average Brooklyn teenager, but her life has been anything but average.The daughter of a missing Russian quantum physicist, Ava was once subjected to a series of ruthless military experiments—until she was rescued by Black Widow and placed under S.H.I.E.L.D. protection. Ava has always longed to reconnect with her mysterious savior, but Black Widow isn’t really the big sister type.
When children all over Eastern Europe begin to go missing, and rumors of smuggled Red Room tech light up the dark net, Natasha suspects her old teacher has returned—and that Ava Orlova might be the only one who can stop him. To defeat the madman who threatens their future, Natasha and Ava must unravel their pasts. Only then will they discover the truth about the dark-eyed boy with an hourglass tattoo who haunts Ava’s dreams…
Black Widow: Forever Red features all the heart-pounding adventure readers expect from Marvel, written by #1 New York Times best-selling author Margaret Stohl. Uncover a new side of the Marvel Universe that will thrill loyal fans and newcomers alike, as Stohl reveals the untold story of Black Widow for the very first time.
Margaret Stohl brought life to the pages in this book. She throws you into action and you find yourself immersed in the book. You also find other emotions who sets your heart beating at a fast pace.
The story begins with how she saves a young Ava Orlova in a backdrop of how the famed Black Widow worked a case. This one being personal because it encompasses the man, Ivan Somodorov, who once trained her in a military experiment called the Red Room. She saves young Ava and then leaves. Not before she gives the child a message.
Back to present day, We see how Ava escapes the compound she was put in after her rescue in order to keep her safe and we find her in NY. She spends much time thinking of the Black Widow. Her savior she once considered her sister. Both being a product of the Red Room. Both being strong minded women with red hair. But Black Widow never came back for her…
Until Now. Ava and Natasha must navigate through the web of kidnappings that they both believe to be their old captor. Natasha, The Black Widow, suspects that Ava is the key to the investigation. All the while they unravel the past that made them who they are today. And ultimately leads them to the boy Ava has been seeing in her dream.
I enjoyed this book. The way it played out was interesting and the characters well developed. BUT really! Do you expect anything less from the woman who was the co-writer of the Beautiful Creatures series?? Nope.
5 Star Read! I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you!!
