Shadow Avengers

A Marvel Crisis Protocol Novel

By Carrie Harris

Earth is on course for a devastating invasion from the Dark Dimension, forcing the world’s mightiest heroes into unthinkable alliances, in this heart-stopping new novel in the Marvel: Crisis Protocol series.

Doctor Strange created the Shadow Avengers to save the world from Dormammu, but instead they’re on the verge of dissolution. When sudden weather anomalies across the world correspond with Asgardian heroes emerging from portals ripe with Dormammu’s magical signature, the Shadow Avengers realize the “Master” is making his move. Loki, Venom, and Green Goblin are behind a ceremony plotting to open a portal big enough to encompass Dormammu’s presence. From the Sanctum Sanctorum to the streets of NYC to beautiful Wakanda, the Shadow Avengers must stop Dormammu at any cost – but the Master, in all his cunning wisdom, has something greater in store that will doom the world once and for all.

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

“Rounding out the new releases is Shadow Avengers, written by Carrie Harris and part of the Crisis Protocol series. Doctor Strange’s Shadow Avengers, brought together earlier to stop Dormammu, are now falling apart—just as Dormammu returns, using Loki, Venom and Green Goblin as his pawns.”
Screen Rant


“I definitely recommend reading this fantastic edition to the crisis protocol series.”
Lady Reading 365

“I gave Shadow Avengers five stars. These Marvel prose novels continue to be among my favorites to read and review. I’m looking forward to future volumes in the series.”
Chris L. Owens

“Honestly Shadow Avengers is a pure delight. It will definitely be enjoyed by fans of the books and showcases the wonderful possibilities the Crisis Protocol tabletop game holds. Not to mention we have a wonderful cast of characters.”
What You Tolkien About

“This reminded me, in a very good way, of a 90’s Marvel comic series called Secret Defenders. It was a quick read that I would recommend to most Marvel fans (old or new).”
Martin’s View

“There’s a way Carrie writes, that brings the superheros and even Villains to life. Honestly I can’t explain it, but she didn’t miss in the personality department for each characters.”
Owls Reading Books

“Shadow Avengers is a good follow-up to Target Kree, a book that took the small hints and promises at the end of that book and gives readers something exciting as the pay-off. It manages to pack in the action, gives just enough mystery to keep readers guessing what might come next, and features some great depictions of some of Marvel’s biggest characters.”

“The plot is tight and well paced and thought out. We slowly learn what is happening for alternative perspectives and to see how it all fits together with the Master’s plan is fantastic.”
What You Tolkien About

“Carrie Harris has a good handle on each of the characters, and she ensures each one gets equal exposure: something which is not always easy in a multi-character story.”

“This reminded me, in a very good way, of a 90’s Marvel comic series called Secret Defenders. It was a quick read that I would recommend to most Marvel fans (old or new).”
