It’s here! The next Marvel book is here, and I couldn’t be more excited for it. Dark Avengers: The Patriot List is a bit of a long title – yet it is an evocative one for anybody paying attention. Written by David Guymer, it’s a quintessential Dark Avengers novel.

What happens to the world after S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers fall? Are they left to face the dangers of the universe without any heroes? Or does a new team step up? Naturally, in the Marvel universe, there’s always somebody ready to step up.

However, sometimes the person that steps up to the plate can bring quite the shock. Take the Dark Avengers. They’re Earth’s defenders now. Led by Normal Osborn, this is a team made up of villains, which begs the question? Just who (or what) are they trying to protect?

Dark Avengers: The Patriot List lives up to the name – this is a novel full of action, adventure, and just the right balance of dark humor. It’s perfect for any Marvel fan, especially the die-hard ones that can appreciate the nuance in the characters portrayed within these pages.

Okay, so you guys know that I’m a sucker for characters with sassy comebacks, right? Well, let’s just say that I absolutely adored how David Guymer wrote many of the characters in this book. Not only did they feel accurate to their comic book versions, but the sass! Oh, so much sass, and I loved every minute of it.

The action was extremely satisfying, which is excellent. I swear, half the reason I read Dark Avengers plots is to get a dose of action and carnage. So if that is what you’re looking for here, you will not be disappointed. Promise.

I should mention that you really need to have a basic understanding of these villains to appreciate their portrayal here. Guymer does not waste time holding hands, so I imagine it would be a bit difficult to dive right in knowing nothing. However, if you are a fan, you’re going to love what you find.

Thanks to Aconyte and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
