Yes! Marvel’s Black Cat fans should make a point of reading Cath Lauria’s Black Cat: Discord because it will not disappoint. This continues the trend of taking beloved Marvel heroines and giving them their very own novels.

Felicia Hardy is very good at what she does, namely stealing and putting her wants and needs above all else. The latest shiny to catch her eyes is a mythical golden apple in New York. The power it promises is enough to ensure that Felicia, aka Black Cat, won’t be the only one gunning for it.

Naturally, this potential heist is about to get very complicated for Felicia. Not that it’s going to stop her. How will she fare against the heroes and villains hunting for the same prize?

Can I just say that I adore the Marvel Heroines line? It gives some of my favorite characters (and side characters) a chance to shine. Next up on the list, we have Black Cat: Discord by Cath Lauria. If you’ve ever read a Spider-Man comic, the odds are good that you know precisely who Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat, is.

For the Marvel fans (or newbies) who adore a good heist novel, please, please, please pick up Black Cat: Discord because it will make all your dreams come true. Given that this is Black Cat we’re talking about, the heist elements should not be a surprise. Nor should it be surprising to hear how much fun this book was to read.

For those that don’t know, Black Cat, aka Felicia Hardy, is a morally gray character stemming from the Marvel Universe. She initially showed up in Spider-Man, though she recently had a series of her own (which was a blast to read – go check it out!). She’s a criminal who loves heists, shiny things, powerful tech, and sometimes magical items. In short, she appreciates items of high value and knows how to get her hands on them.

Thus we have the foundation of Black Cat: Discord, as Felicia sets out to snatch the mythical golden apple before anyone else does. Naturally, she goes up against many other players in this universe, as power has a way of attracting people.

Readers should prepare themselves for a lot of laughs, tension, and a shockingly tense and emotional conclusion. Oh! And the LGBTQ+ rep included in Black Cat: Discord was very much appreciated. Now, go read it!

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