VOYA, December 2016 (Vol. 39, No. 5) - Kimberly Barbour
The adventure continues for Natasha Romanova (Black Widow) and Ava Orlova (Red Widow). After defeating Ivan Somodorov, the ruthless instructor of the infamous Red Room, and suffering the loss of Alexei, the two must team up to defeat a new enemy while managing their quantum link. Black Widow is the victim of an “UNSUB” cyber-attack while on a reconnaissance mission in Rio de Janeiro with Red Widow. With help from fellow avenger Tony Stark (aka Iron Man), the Widows travel through Brazil to find the culprit behind the assault, whom they believe is connected (again) to the Red Room. The action peaks at the Christmas tree lighting in New York City where Natasha finds herself staring down the barrel of a pistol held by someone she believed was an ally. The sequel to Stohl’s Forever Red (Marvel Press, 2015/Voya October 2015), Red Vengeance is set in the Marvel universe, and told in alternating character perspectives interspersed with reports between Black Widow and S.H.I.E.L.D. The fast pace will easily draw in reluctant readers, and the action-packed, engaging plot and surprise ending will have readers on the edges of their seats. Fans will appreciate the cameos made by other Avengers and the references to the Avenger movies, as well as Stohl’s commitment to their authenticity. Reviewer: Kimberly Barbour; Ages 12 to Adult.

Gr 8 Up—Natasha Romanoff and Ava Orlova (aka Black Widow and Red Widow, respectively) may have defeated Ivan Somodorov in Black Widow: Forever Red, but Russia's Red Room is still thriving, threatening the Widows and the world. Natasha and Ava, who is now enrolled in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s training program, are grieving the death of Alex, Natasha's long-lost brother and Ava's boyfriend. When S.H.I.E.L.D.'s network is hacked and a new villain appears with a dangerous mind-control drug, the teens must once again save the world from the Red Room. This volume builds on the complex relationship between Natasha and Ava, who are not only connected by their love for Alex and their Red Room past but also by their quantum entanglement link. Despite their similarities, Ava, who has the ability to express emotion, contrasts with Natasha, who has been taught—and forced—to keep her emotions in check. Alex's presence in Ava's mind grows as the story progresses, though readers will hope that the reason for this plot point will be explained in the next series entry. Tony Stark continues to provide invaluable help to the Widows and is joined by Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel), who will be starring in her own upcoming young adult novel. Action-packed, with international travel, political intrigue, and strong female protagonists, this title will not disappoint fans and will leave readers eager for the next installment. VERDICT Purchase where the first novel and superhero prequels are popular.—Marissa Lieberman, East Orange Public Library, NJ
