Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.
I’m back with a new edition of a Waiting on Wednesday post! There are a bunch of October releases I’m looking forward to but I’m especially ready for this one!
I’m addicted to the comic world and superheroes these days and I’m all about Girl Power! What better way than Marvel releasing a novel about one of Avengers’ most bad-ass chicks than Natasha Romanoff’s story. Seriously she’s who I want to be when I grow up and I think Scarlett Johansson does a really great job being that heroic female in a powerhouse full of men. She brings it. Always. I’m ready to read her story.
Synopsis (via Goodreads):
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. . . .
