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. Until now. 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 bestselling author Margaret Stohl.

Ok, this is one of those moments when my Fangirl starts showing and, trust me when I say this, I have no shame. I don't care what it is, if it's got Black Widow's name or logo on it, it's mine, all MINE. I don't have to tell you how much Black Widow kicks butt unless you've somehow managed to miss every Avenger related movie, comic, or even movie trailer in which she appears, and this book is no different. Yes, it's YA. Yes, I tend to steer away from YA, with very few exceptions. This is one of those exceptions, and I wasn't in any way disappointed.

I hadn't even bothered to read the synopsis before I bought the book or even before I started reading it. So, I was a bit surprised to discover that this wasn't exactly what I thought it was. I thought it was going to be a retelling of Black Widow's story, but with her as a teen. As you can tell from the synopsis above, that's not it at all, and, honestly, I was a bit relieved. I understand revamping Marvel's greatest to appeal to a new generation, but understanding doesn't mean I want Natasha's story changed. Please, Marvel, keep doing what you've done with this book and just leave my favorite assassin as she is, OK? Oh, and how about giving her her own video game? I'll give you all my monies.

Full of action, attitude, and shocking red hair, if you want a non-comic comic book story, look no further than Black Widow: Forever Red. ( )

Nice premise and good backstory, though I found myself wishing for more detail about the Red Room stuff and less teen romance/angst. It's an easy book to recommend, lots of action, quick moving plot, plenty of superhero fun times. That said, I want an adult Black Widow novel or, you know, a Black Widow movie where I could get more specific detail than this YA format allowed. I'm not much for superhero comics, primarily because I often find the people I ask about where to start aren't particularly welcoming to new readers. Also, the few superhero graphic novels I've read have such cartoonish drawings of women they can be painful to read. I kind of dance around the edges with the newer Ms. Marvel and the occasional Wonder Woman, and I'm not convinced I can find my way to Black Widow's comic backstory on my own, so the good part is that this book tries to fill that niche in an accessible way.

LOOK at that kick-ass cover! This young adult book is about the black widow, Natasha Romanoff, who you may know from Agents of Shield or the comic books. Even if you don’t – no worries – because you get to read about enough of her backstory at the Red Room spy-training program to keep up. Before reading this book, I was sceptic to how well a superhero novel could turn out, especially thow to write action scenes without making them sound either very unrealistic and childish or too detailed to be interesting. I’m happy to say that’s not a problem – they were written really well, with a good pace!

Another concern of mine was Natasha Romanoff and how she would be portrayed. I have to admit I don’t like Scarlett Johanson in the role, but this version definitely got her fierceness down. She is different of course (and I like her better), but stays true to the original character. Natasha Romanoff is kick-ass and blunt, but got her flaws and they’re used to add another aspect to the plot. There’s also two teenagers introduced; Ava Orlova and Alex(ei), and all three of them have their own pov’s, which works out really well.

What seems to make or break this book for most readers is how high their expectations were when they started the book, as well as how much they like Ava. Because- let me just tell you now; for the first half of this book, Ava is who it’s about. She’s the girl that was saved by Natasha, but their relationship ended there as she left her to fend for herself in a system of american beauraucrats that didn’t know what to do with her except keep her under lockdown. Even if their similarities is noted upon, both fierce girls with red hair, Ava reminds me more of Gotham’s version of Catwoman, an orphan running from everyone. And I liked her, even if she wasn’t what I expected.

The plot itself felt average. It started okay, got better from there, but towards the end I had enough of cheesy dialogue and one-liners. With movies on screen, you can at least cover your eyes and wait for it to be over, when I tried that while reading it didn’t really work out the same.

One last thing that annoyed me about this book; Alex. His whole character is not believable. He’s so stereotypical “boy” in a way I’ve never read before, fortunately. It was ... bad.

Other than that, it was an exciting, or at least enjoyable, read. Lots of action; loved the fencing-element, nice flow throughout the book. If this book had stayed on the path it was on before Natasha Romanoff and the teenagers collided, I would have loved it. The story of Ava seemed like an interesting one, the mission she was involved in; not so much. It seems like what they say – that the black widow is trouble – is true for this book too. Which is weird, since it was supposed to be her book. It got to the point where my favourite character was the DOD, as he basically roasted Natasha Romanoff; “You’re the last line of defense for citizens of the United States of America, not to mention the world. Act like it.»

The personality of the characters, as well as the book, just seemed to falter some places. But if you are interested in this book, definitely give it a try. I liked learning more about Natasha’s backstory and personality, as well as about Ava. It was new and interesting to read about superheroes in a novel form. Also, this book also got Coulson and Tony Stark. So there’s that. ( )

Extremely quick read. I'm not generally into comic book based characters/books, but this is fast paced and very well written, especially the blend of public hero/real world threat plot elements. Shocker, to me at least, at the end, making me want to read the rest of the series. ( )

*** 3 out of 5 stars
Review by: Mark Palm
The Black and the Red.

Every book deserves to be read and reviewed on it’s own merits, and I certainly intend to do that with Black Widow: Forever Red, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to say how thrilled I am that this book was even written. I have been a fan of Marvel Comics since I was a child, when comics cost a quarter. I am a fan of most of the films, though I have to say that I cannot for the life of understand why we have yet to be treated to a Black Widow film. Perhaps the new Netflix series Jessica Jones will help. Until then I will side with my daughter, who received an Avengers backpack, and will not use it because all of the heroes from the first film are on it; except for the Black Widow. If we are lucky Margaret Stohl’s novel, Black Widow: Forever Red, will help even more.

During a mission for S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Natasha Romanoff, AKA The Black Widow, discovers that her old trainer, Ivan Somodorov, master of the Red Room, the Soviet academy that trains girls to be assassins and spies, was conducting mysterious experiments on a little girl. Natasha wrecks the program, and saves the girl, Ana Orlova, but Somodorov escapes. Placed under S.H.I.E.L.D. protection Ana escapes, and we find her, years later, living on her own and trying to be just another teenage girl in Brooklyn; except that she keeps having vivid dreams about a teenage boy with a Widow’s Mark tattooed on his arm. Dreams so vivid that she makes detailed drawings of him and his life. Then one day she runs into him at a fencing match, and then all hell breaks loose, as bullets fly and Ava and Alex find themselves running for their lives as both the good guys and the bad guys are trying to find them. Oddly, in the midst of danger both find themselves acting and reacting to combat as if they had been trained for years. And when things look grim, the Black Widow shows up, and the plot kicks into high gear.

I’m not spoiling the plot, but Ms. Stohl dives into the past as the two teens and the Widow try to unfurl a passel of mysteries. This book got better and better as it went along, but there was one singular problem that I just could not overcome, and that is that the Black Widow is a secondary character in a book with her name and picture on the cover. Ava is a well-drawn, but Natasha, outside of a few surprise plot twists, is as unknowable as ever.

I can appreciate that the nature of the Black Widow’s character is that she is distant and aloof, but instead of this being her star turn she is stuck in the role of an understudy. It would be different if Alex were more compelling, but he is a YA love interest with the depth of a kiddie pool. The chapters are interspersed with faux excerpts from the transcripts of an enquiry into the events of the novel, as some nameless functionary interviews Natasha. It gives the book a bit of depth and gives Natasha a chance to dish out some good one-liners, but doesn't add much else.

Action is something that is deceptively difficult to write, and Ms. Stohl get it right for the most part, but never really lands a knock-out blow. I could see the battles in my head, but not in my gut. Ms. Stohl has delivered a solid YA novel, but I still feel like I’m waiting for the Black Widow's debut.
