Reign of the Devourer

A Marvel Untold Novel

By David Annandale

The notorious Doctor Doom’s endless craving for power unleashes a soul-destroying plague on the world, in the latest devastating Marvel Untold novel

Victor von Doom saw his future for an instant, and now he cannot rest. His obsession with regaining those memories leads him into the arcane science of geomancy. As he delves into the ancient memories that lie beneath his land, Doom discovers a tremendous concentration of power… one that should never be explored. Doom’s excavations and necromancy fracture the prison of something awful: the Devourer of Souls. Now free to roam Latveria, the Devourer spreads a plague of soul-hungry vampires. Doom must choose between seizing this power for himself or destroying it, before his realm is no more.

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.

     More about David Annandale

“This novel is a sequel to Annandale’s The Harrowing of Doom which came out in early 2021. While the rest of the Marvel world views him as a villain, to the people of Latveria he is a “hero”. And when his kingdom and subjects are treatened by a powerful, evil entity, he rises to the challenge as a protector. This is why Doom is one of my favorite Marvel villains – because he is so complex. Once again, the reader is treated to a wonderful portrayal of Doctor Doom; Annandale captures those multifacets perfectly. When Doom is advising those around him to push further, to challenge their own limits, he shows the redeemable qualities of his personality.”
Martin’s View

“As spectacular, characterful and downright entertaining as any Marvel movie. Doctor Doom might usually play the role of the bad guy, but with this fantastic exploration of his character and his relationship to Latveria it’s clear that there’s much more to him than just monomaniacal villainy. Annandale’s love for the character comes through strongly, and he’s undoubtedly done Doom justice.”
Track of Words

Curse of Honor is a well-told story that stands on its own, with little knowledge of Rokugan required to enjoy it. The horror is effectively done, managing to give you a strong sense of the perils whilst leaving the details evasive. The characters are interesting and for those who make it to the end alive, there should be plenty of interest in seeing what comes next for them in any sequel that might follow.”
Fistful of Meeples

Curse of Honor is a deftly crafted and inherently riveting read from first page to last. Clearly showcasing Annandale’s genuine flair for originality and the kind of narrative storytelling style that is as entertaining as it is compelling.”
Midwest Book Review

“A great novel about Doctor Doom influenced by strong comic lore knowledge, Gothic and Romance literature, horror cinema, and fantasy.”
– The Doom Archives
