Marvel's Black Widow is one of the more mysterious and complex characters in the publisher's large catalog of heroes and villains, and while Forever Red goes some ways to delving into her rich backstory, the book largely centers around a couple of teens with unexpected ties to Romanoff.

Author Margaret Stohl captures the essence of the character to perfection, so much so, that Forever Red could easily be a short cinematic experience with all the action and espionage trappings. Coupled with two new characters in Ava and Alex and a consistent frenetic pace, the story never looses traction.

My rating: A solid 3.5/5. I would've rated Forever Red much higher had the story been more Romanoff-centric, which in a way, it was, just not to the extent I had hoped. Definitely work checking out if you're a Marvel fan.
