‘Beautiful Creatures’ Author Announces New MARVEL Black Widow Project!!!


There’s a new story in the Marvel universe, and this one focuses on the oft neglected Black Widow. Black Widow: Forever Red is a new audiobook that comes to us from #1 New York Times bestselling author Margaret Stohl, coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures series. And bringing the world of the Avenger’s iconic master spy to life for our listening pleasure is Julie Whelan, winner of the prestigious Earphones Award.

In Stohl’s Forever Red, 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…

Children all over Eastern Europe begin to go missing, and rumors of smuggled Red Room tech light up the dark net, and Natasha suspects her old teacher has returned. She believes 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. . . .

This new chapter in the Marvel universe features all the heart-pounding adventure readers expect from Marvel, written by #1 New York Times best-selling author Margaret Stohl. This addition will thrill loyal fans and newcomers alike, as Stohl reveals the untold story of Black Widow for the very first time.
