A Marvel: Crisis Protocol Novel

By Stuart Moore

The Avengers clash with the Guardians of the Galaxy in a desperate search for a planet-killer, in this action-packed novel set in the world of the Marvel: Crisis Protocol game

Following the destruction of their world, a group of Kree refugees come to Earth to work for Stark Enterprises. But the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive soon after, believing that the world-killer is actually one of those Kree, now hiding out on Earth. But there are others after the killer too, and the Avengers have no choice but to respond – and both Tony Stark and Ms Marvel have to choose between the fate of the Earth and the people they care about.

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

“Ninety percent of the novel is Rocket Raccoon flying into things, Gamora threatening to decapitate people, and Ms Marvel jumping off the outside of spaceships. Promise. There are surprise villains, too.”
Animate Stooge

“The opportunity to write a giant-scale clash between these two groups was irresistible. Structuring the story was tough, but lots of fun. I really wanted to make sure the characters drove the conflicts at every stage; that’s absolutely key to Marvel storytelling.”

– Stuart Moore


“This really does feel like a bold, brightly-coloured superhero movie… a flashy action story that’s tremendous fun while still maintaining some characterful depths.”
Track of Words

“An entertaining, page-turner of a novel that offers up plenty of huge super heroic moments worthy of the big screen – or the table top – as well as a sensibility that you don’t often get in this kind of book. And a great summer read.”

“If you love superheroes getting in fights with each other, if you like big team-ups against powerful foes, if you like stories where the stakes are the entire planet, and if you’re a fan of comics this is the kind of novel that will appeal to you. It throws so much at the reader that you’re constantly on your toes, excited to find out what’s going to happen next, or eager to see which hero might appear at the last minute to help save the day. A ton of fun that every geek is sure to love.”

“I particularly love books with a ton of crossover characters, and Target: Kree does not disappoint. It has cover-to-cover action that never gets dull. I gave Target: Kree ★★★★★. I have read several of the Marvel prose novel from Aconyte Books, and this was my favorite one yet.”
Chris Lowens

“A fun beat-em-up story”
Big Geordie Geek

“Fast-paced, action-filled superhero adventure.”
– School Library Journal

“A good novelization should make you think about the original in a new light – and this more than fulfils that requirement.”
– Sci-Fi Bulletin

“Fast-paced, action-filled superhero adventure.”
