    1. I know a lot of people don't like this series, but I enjoy it. In comparison to the first book, this one was much better. The plot was relatively simple which I liked. We got a lot more Natasha which is always nice. Plus we also got Captain Marvel! Overall, I enjoyed it and thought it was a lot of fun. I hope the series continues because the end sets up a sequel.


    2. Natasha Romanoff is the sovereign of my heart. She is my wife and the only character that truly matters to me.So, as someone who knows her and loves her I can’t give my approval to this book.Last year Forever Red was awesome: cool plot, badass Nat and yes, it was YA but it was fun. The way Ava and her friends were introduced to Nat’s world felt natural.Natasha’s characterisation had been spot on too, I remember a specific moment when I thought ‘damn you can tell Stohl did her job!’Red [...]



    3. I don't know why I made myself read this. I hated the first one, but I love Black Widow so much, I feel like I have to support anything with her as the lead. However, I regret reading this book. It was awful. It was predictable, boring, and extremely slow moving. The plot was a mess with random references and cameos by other characters thrown in without any real payoff or reason. Apparently Natasha is only actual friends with Tony Stark and Carol Danvers. The universe seems to be a weird mesh of [...]


    4. I wish I had more to say, considering this was a Netgalley copy. But it was predictable, ignored/forgot MCU canon at times, and just didn't have interesting action. I was not compelled to continue this book at all. If you've read the first one, you've read the second one imho.


    5. Everything about this book was quite flawless to me. As a long time marvel fan the comics have been vastly disappointing, so it was refreshing to see someone take Black Widow and gives us a damned good rich story (when so many people claimed you couldn't with widow).Stohl manages to seamlessly weave marvel 616, MCU, and the television universe to all make a very cohesive story. We find out that the avengers do know Coulson is alive (which the MCU has failed to mention in any movie), and we might [...]


    6. I had enjoyed the novel's predecessor, and imagined I would feel the same about its sequel. Unfortunately the storytelling fell flat, and I couldn't invest myself in the plot.


    7. Black Widow has a new partner in crime, Red Widow. The Widows are dealing with loosing Alexei, someone who was close to them both. And each grieving in their own ways. While trying to stay on top of their game while getting vengeance, it makes things a little bit messy.Stohl has done it again. She has taken you on a journey with one of your favorite Avengers'. And if Black Widow isn't your favorite avenger these books will make you love her. Getting inside her brain and seeing how Natasha reacts [...]


    8. 5 starsNice to see Natasha and Ava again. The mission was good. Glad to get more of a look inside their brains. Also glad Ava was able to see Oksana again. Wonder if we will be seeing Yelena Bolova. Can't wait to see if there will be another Black Widow book!!! Excited for Avengers: Infinity War!!!!



    9. This picks up months after book 1, with Ava a trainee at Shield, and both she and Natasha still grieving for Alexei. Natasha gets a lead on more Red Room stuff, and pulls Ava out of class to help Natasha in the field. Had some really good Natasha moments, some quite funny Natasha-Tony moments, and how great is it that Natasha, Maria Hill and Carol Danvers hang out every month?Oh yeah, and there's Ava, all contrary teen, but super powered and suffering from PTSD, which no one at SHIELD seems to w [...]


    10. 3.5Why were two normal-ish teens sitting on in an meeting about nukes? Also, all these mind alternating substances and even mention of Aliens just really brings a kind of ridiculousness to the whole novel, I'm in it for the high tech spying not some other world shit. I just feel the book was kind of a big step down from the first, I really enjoyed it despite confusion over some of the lingo at the start but I felt a disconnect to it, also the vengeance part kinda lacked emotion and the character [...]


    11. I won't rate this, but I can't stand the fact that fucking Alex is a ghost and he's still here.Can you just pls not hallucinate your instalove love interest? Kthxbye.


    12. *Source* Library*Genre* Comics-Superheroes*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*Red Vengeance is the second installment in author Margaret Stohl's Black Widow series. The last we saw of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, and her new partner Ava Orlova aka Red Widow, they had both lost someone, Alexei, that they each loved. Now they seek vengeance on those responsible for his death, and if in the process they take down anyone else who had anything to do with his death, more's the pity. But, who could stand toe [...]


    13. This book wasn't as tightly written as the first one, my other problem is that Black Widow feels like a side kick to the younger characters in the novel, where in the first one she was more in the driver's seat. I think these books do show a Black Widow movie is possible. I hope in the next book Black Widow takes more of the center stage than she got in this book. The new characters do feel shoehorned into the story at times.


    14. 4.25 ⭐️This is a second hit on the Black Widow series by Margaret Stohl! Action packed, this spy adventure continues to follow Natasha and Ava's lives, now that the youngest has been officially recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. - and has a mental connection with her dead boyfriend (and Natasha's brother) Alexei.The delivery was just as good as the first novel. Stohl has a way with words. She can follow a deeply emotional moment by an action scene without it feeling forced in any way. This was defini [...]


    15. If you liked the first one you'll probably like this one too. If, like me, you suffered through the first one then give this one a pass. Save yourself.Free at last. No longer can this book haunt my self like a vengeful ghost. Be gone foul demon, torment me no longer. I had at least some hope this one would be better that the first, but unsurprisingly I was disappointed again. Ava's still an angsty idiot, there's still no real character development to speak of, the villain's still completely forg [...]


    16. I thoroughly enjoy that Marvel is finding new ways to tell their heroine's stories. It's exciting to see Natasha, Carol, and Ava negotiating the world of SHIELD outside the adventures of the Avengers. They're incredible characters and I'm glad they're bringing them to a new audience in a new medium.My only complaint is that I would also love to see an adult novel featuring Natasha. She is a dangerous, sexy character and she is somewhat neutered keeping her stories appropriate for a YA audience. [...]


    17. DNF for now. Its pretty clear that I need to read the first book before this one. I'll come back to this once I do.


    18. To be honest, I gave up on this book. I love Black Widow and her whole character arc but I just couldn't get onto the whole storyline of the book.


    19. This book was a bit of a mess for me. I found the storyline difficult to follow, and the behavior of virtually all of the characters was frustrating, unrealistic, and unconvincing as far as Marvel canon. Also I'm pretty sure Stohl just decided to throw in a bunch of random teenagers simply to make this a YA novel, but it just didn't work. I wasn't impressed.


    20. Ugh I so wanted to like this book because the other one was a disappointment, but hey, call me a cock-eyed optimist because I was sure this one was gonna be better; all the story-building of the first one was out of the way, and with one member of the annoying insta-love couple dead, surely this one would focus more completely on Black Widow, right? RIGHT???Nope. Because GHOSTSSSSSS!!! (I wish I was kidding)Add in a slow plot-line and povs strung out between 3 different characters and it took me [...]


    21. Pretty review here thebookrook/2017I have made a huge mistake. I don’t remember what happened in the first book . . . I mean I remember the characters and all but that’s about it. Which is kind of ironic because I read the first Black Widow book because I wanted some Black Widow backstory (hint, hint marvel I’ve been asking really nicely). Anyways Natasha and her (baby avenger?) co-Widow Ava are going after everyone and everything to do with the Red Room. The place/thing/organization that [...]


    22. Everything that was wrong with the first book only got worse with the sequel. There was zero character development, the story got more complicated and ridiculous, and Natasha seems to be more of a rookie in training rather than a world class spy.


    23. There are a few things in the Marvel multiverse that I'm forever salty about. Like the fact that Andrew Garfield isn't playing Spider-Man anymore, but he'll always be Spidey for me, and always my number-one storytelling inspiration. Or the fact that we were introduced to Alexei in Forever Red, only to see him get killed off after only one book. (Yeah, Margaret Stohl, I'm still never forgiving you for that.)Or the fact that Stohl's Black Widow series is still the closest we've gotten to a Black W [...]


    24. Originally posted at Red House BooksLoved.Honestly, I didn't think I would enjoy this series as much as I am. I mean, I love the Marvel Universe and I loved the Avengers movies but there is only so much, witty banter, explosions and total mass destruction I can take before I get a little glassy eyed.Or so I thought.Ok, so the books have a little less explosions (thank you!) and the banter is mostly all Tony Stark's but wow this story is intense - and the details that went into Natasha's back sto [...]


    25. After finishing this book I only have two words to say: holy crap.Natasha Romanoff is my favorite Marvel character, and i have been clamoring for a solo movie for a while, and when Forever Red came out last year I devoured it whithin days. I absolutly fell in love with Ava, the Red Widow, and fell even more in love with Natasha, if that is possible. It was beautifully writen, and revealed so much of Natasha's background that we had no idea about. So, naturally, when I found out the there was goi [...]


    26. The user review by Victoria is one that really covers why I dislike this book so much, but I just need to add to it a little before I forget this one part that has really stuck with me throughout this whole time.lAt one point in the book, the widows are in the and decide to fake their death. In order to get blood what does the highly trained, very knowledgeable, assassin do in order to get blood? She cuts her palm.Really? I can understand why they make characters do that in movies, shows, and p [...]


    27. I read the first book in this series Black Widow: Forever Red 2 years ago and I enjoyed it, this sequel however was a big disappointment. I have a lot of thoughts so I'm going to try organize this as best as possible with no spoilers.Plot: -I feel like nothing happened in this book, the plot felt repetitive and I struggled to stay engaged in the story. -The "shocking" moments never seemed shocking, I predicted a lot. -I have no idea what universe this is set in, it didn't match up with MCU or 61 [...]


    28. There was so little action I wanted to jump in and start killing people myself. This book was basically just people traveling and having meetings about what was happening. Also why did Dante have a point of view? Like what was he doing that was so important that he needed to take up time with his dad being a police officer and why does shield just tell him and Oxana everything that's going on? It doesn't make any sense. It really annoyed me that black widow had nothing to do with how the end pla [...]
