When Latveria is beset by a rash of terrorist attacks, his suspicions are confirmed: the Red Skull is coming for Doom’s homeland.

Interviews and Articles

“The Tyrant Skies is an outstanding and highly entertaining novel”
The Unseen Library

“Tyrant Skies kept me on the edge of my seat. I love the mixture of science and mystic arts that Doom uses within his arsenal.”
What You Tolkien About

“You shouldn’t like Doom, but he might be the person that Latveria needs the most. It’s a complexity that you don’t often get with villains, and one that can be a lot of fun when you do.”

“There’s something perverse and exciting about wanting Doctor Doom to win.”
Cosmic Circus

“Annandale has done his homework as this novel feels like a natural extension of that long-established rivalry.”
Martin’s View

Praise for David Annandale’s Doctor Doom novels

“A deftly crafted and simply riveting read from first page to last, Reign of the Devourer by David Annandale is a ‘must’ for the legions of Marvel Universe fans in general, and Doctor Doom enthusiasts in particular. A part of the simply outstanding Aconyte Books ‘Marvel Untold’ series, and highly recommended for community library Science Fiction collections”
Midwest Book Review, on Reign of the Devourer

“As grand and epic a story as you can imagine… Annandale mixes gothic tragedy and daring cinematic action (plus a healthy dose of surreal occult antics) to create something powerful and exciting, and it turns out to be as spectacular, full of character and downright entertaining as any Marvel movie.”
Culture Vs News, on The Harrowing of Doom

“The novel is well paced, dialogue is well written, and the action scenes are exciting. But for me, The Harrowing of Doom’s best qualities are its horror elements. There were several passages in particular where his depiction of Hell was terrifying in a very classical way, reminding me of Edgar Allan Poe and early Black Sabbath albums. Not gruesome or gory, but still evoking otherworldliness and dread as our reality faded away and was replaced by a literal Hellscape.”

–  Grimdark Magazine, on The Harrowing of Doom

The Harrowing of Doom gives the reader a very intimate look at its eponymous protagonist, and whilst Doom’s iron will, and the implicit (or sometimes explicit) lack of freedom that this implies for his subjects never fully goes away, the figure he presents is a very interesting one nonetheless. ”
Fistful of Meeples, on The Harrowing of Doom

“A great novel about Doctor Doom influenced by strong comic lore knowledge, Gothic and Romance literature, horror cinema, and fantasy. If that sounds like something up your alley, definitely check it out. It gets a wholehearted recommendation from me. ”
The Doom Archives, on The Harrowing of Doom
