A Marvel Heroines Novel

By Cath Lauria

Smart-mouthed monster hunter extraordinaire, Elsa Bloodstone isn’t easily fazed, but a shocking family revelation sends her down a bloody path, in this witty and action-soaked Marvel Heroines adventure

Elsa Bloodstone just can’t catch a break. She’s barely finished shutting down a hive of ratmen when a special ops squad turns up guns blazing – and they’re shooting at her! It’s nothing a good grenade can’t sort out though. When Elsa returns home, she discovers an unexpected guest claiming to be her long-lost sister, seeking her own stolen Bloodstone shard. The Bloodstone is the secret to Elsa’s superhuman powers, and a shard in villainous hands is seriously bad news. Cue globetrotting adventures full of monster-smashing. But danger stays one step ahead of them as Elsa realizes her sister isn’t quite what she seems, and an old enemy with a secret about her family’s past could overturn everything Elsa’s ever believed.

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

“Elsa is a fabulous character who should be more of a recognisable hero in the Marvel Universe, because she combines badassery and hilarity in a way few others do.”
Trans-Scribe, Interview with Cath Lauria, author of Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest

“It was SO MUCH FUN figuring out who to bring into Elsa’s book. This was my first time working on a project in such a vast established universe, and while there were a few characters who were off-limits up front, I still had a fair number of people to work with when it came to the rest of the cast.”
Track of Words, Interview with Cath Lauria, author of Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest

“It’s a bright, fun story... while the pace, excitement and enjoyable world-building all combine to keep the pages turning.”
