Black Cat: Discord

A Marvel Heroines Novel

By Cath Lauria

Legendary super-thief Black Cat takes on some of Marvel’s most renowned heroes and mob secrets in this electrifying heist novel from Marvel Heroines

Felicia Hardy always puts her own interests first, but the appearance of a mythical golden apple in New York has everybody with a hint of power scrambling for it. And who’s everyone’s number one choice to nab it for them? The Black Cat, of course. Yet that isn’t the only job on Felicia’s radar. When a smart aleck kid turns up demanding her help, Felicia finds herself caught between the mob, her morals and some very insistent supervillains. It’ll take all nine lives to wriggle out of this one intact, but Felicia has more than one trick up her sleeve.

It isn’t easy being extraordinary. Superhuman powers can be both a gift and a curse in a world where those talents can be used for good or evil. A lucky few are taught how to control their abilities at the Charles Xavier Institute, while others must master their uniquely dangerous powers alone. Will they become true heroes and heroines when called upon to defend the world, or turn their fearsome abilities to conquering the world? Meanwhile, in a realm beyond Earth, mighty heroes do battle with monsters of myth and undertake quests to restore peace and honor to the legendary halls of Asgard and the Ten Realms.

Interviews and Articles

“She’s just…gah, she’s so cool. I’ve always had a soft spot for heist stories, and especially in a universe that’s crowded with superpowered people, it’s a fun challenge to write about someone who doesn’t have a lot of those abilities at her disposal. Felicia’s got to be more thoughtful about how she pulls off her jobs, and that means teamwork. Her team is the best. Also, she’s bi, which spoke to me on a personal level. I appreciate so much about her, and had to make a play to write her book.” – Cath Lauria
The Book Network

“In March, Black Cat takes center stage in Black Cat: Discord, written by Cath Lauria. Part of the Marvel Heroines line, Black Cat is faced with a moral dilemma when multiple parties wish to hire her for a dangerous job, one that will pay handsomely if she succeeds.”
Screen Rant


“There’s no question Black Cat: Discord is one of the most fun Marvel novels you can pick up. It takes a fantastic character and throws her a wildly fun original story that is jampacked with other beloved characters.”
Laughing Place

“I loved this book and you will too.”
Cosmic Circus

“No question, 5 out of 5 stars”

Laughing Place

“From the first page, Cath Lauria demonstrated her writing style with vivid descriptions, incredible puns, and in doing so, takes the well-loved, yet somewhat under-appreciated, character of Felicia Hardy, and puts her own spin on her narrative voice.”
Dorothy’s Bookshelf

“I think that it might be one of the best books that Aconyte and Marvel have done together. The book was filled with great character moments, exciting actions, and wonderfully delightful scenes that could only ever work for Black Cat. An absolute pleasure to read from start to finish.”

“In short this novel ticked nearly all my boxes, a strong arguably morally grey female lead who is sassy and can look after herself, brilliant bickering and banter between Felicia and her henchmen (although really they are more like family!), a young protégée who has her own tricks up her sleeve, fund and reunited family, epic team ups and fights and representation done in a natural way.”
What You Tolkien About

“Her story arc was so different from many of the Marvel ‘heroes’, and her methods so different. I liked her instantly. Overall I enjoyed the read, and will definitely be reading more Marvel novels in the future.”
John’s Bookshelf

“I gave Black Cat: Discord five stars. I enjoyed Black Cat’s character voice, the interactions among her team members, and multiple interactions with other heroes such as Iron Fist, Spider-Man, the Daredevil, and IronMan/Tony Stark. It’s a fun look at a character who walks the fine line between being a hero and being an anti-hero.”
Chris L. Owens

“Black Cat finds herself in the middle of not one but two interesting developments, and I enjoyed how the author was able to weave them together into an engaging narrative that has lots of action and heart.”
Martin’s View

Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest is a brilliant book, full of background, but done in such a way as to not overwhelm and crammed full of comic book style action.”
– Big Geordie Geek

“Elsa is hilarious. Snarky and sarcastic, she always has a witty comeback or quip ready, even when she’s in battle… Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest is a monstrously good time to read.”
