The Husband pointed this book out to me on Netgalley, but I was kinda hesitant to request it. Mainly because that cover is Horrible. But I do have a weak for some Marvel ladies, and I was unfamiliar with Elsa so I went for it anyway. And I am really happy I did!

Elsa is described in the book as:

You move like a cat and fight like a wolverine, and you do it all in heels and toting more guns than most people can even name. You’re a stone cold badass, Elsa Bloodstone.

And that is pretty accurate. We a

Thank you Netgalley, Marvel Entertainment and Aconyte books for a review copy of this novel!

I loved the Marvel Heroines Rogue novel and was excited to read this one about Elsa Bloodstone. To be honest, while I’m a major Marvel fan (my daughters named after Marvel), I didn’t know anything about Elsa. But my goodness is she awesome! This is such a great novel for introducing the character to more people and open a gateway to more of the Marvel heroines we don’t hear about often.

Reminding me of V

4.5 This was super fun. I don't have much background on the character so that may enhance the story even more but even so it was a wild ride. ...more

I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Marvel Heroines book Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest by Cath Lauria, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

I am going to try my best to not let this

I received an electronic ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Elsa is living the best life a superpowered monster hunter can live. But when the half-sister she never knew she had shows up at Bloodstone Manor, everything comes to a screeching halt.

Elsa’s introduction to her half-sister, Mihaela Zamfir, is a rough one. Mihaela begs Elsa to help her retrieve her Bloodstone shard, the one memento she has left from their deceased father. Unfortunately, Elsa doesn’t have

Part of the Marvel: Heroines series from Aconyte Books, Cath Lauria’s Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest is a madcap thrill-ride full of monster battles, jet-setting and bickering siblings. Elsa Bloodstone – badass monster hunter, daughter of the famed Ulysses Bloodstone, definitely not a team player – is quite content with her life spent travelling the world, slaying assorted horrors for money. When a simple monster hunt is interrupted by mercenaries wanting her bloodstone shard, however, it seems as tho ...more

In my opinion, Elsa Bloodstone is criminally underrated.
This was a very fun read and Lauria's voice for Elsa was extremely entertaining and snarky, which is exactly what you would expect from a monster hunter who doesn't put up with anyone she doesn't have to. I was familiar with Elsa before reading this novel but she was very much underused in the Marvel universe and this provided her with wonderful depth that still felt familiar to the fact that I knew. For fans who are looking for more of El

Elsa Boodstone: Bequest was my first experience with the character of Elsa Bloodstone, and as such I had no idea what to expect from this book. Instead of the usual super hero fare readers get presented with a kick-ass action heroine fighting monsters and the creatures of the night in a story that feels more like Urban Fantasy than a Marvel story; and because of that it stands out as a truly unique and exciting addition the the Marvel Heroines line.

The story follows Elsa Bloodstone, daughter of
