Marvel’s Midnight Suns: Infernal Rising – Book Review

Marvel’s Midnight Suns: Infernal Rising by S. D. Perry

Blade, Magik, Nico Minoru, and Ghost Rider have joined forces to form the Midnight Suns. Trained by the Caretaker at the Abbey, a gothic fortress in a pocket dimension, this brand-new team of supernatural heroes is the world’s first line of defense against the demonic forces of the underworld.

With a looming prophecy of magical upheaval that threatens to unleash apocalyptic danger, the Suns must learn to work together, and quickly. But they aren’t the only ones paying attention to the disruption of mystical forces.

Taking advantage of the growing disorder, a mysterious group called the Triumvirate has discovered the existence of a hidden relic that would give them control over Mephisto, and they will stop at nothing to exact revenge on their shared enemy. The Midnight Suns will face their biggest challenge yet to prevent the Triumvirate from unearthing this devastating power and throwing the world into chaos.

Infernal Rising is a prequel novel to Marvel’s Midnight Suns game. Although I’m not a gamer, I’m familiar with the characters and team from the comics. I wouldn’t say it’s completely necessary to know the characters well before reading this novel, but having a basic knowledge of them does help. This story is engaging and action-packed as the team hunts down this new villainous Triumvirate. I only wish there was a bit more backstory on how the team was formed. And the teasing of a fallout with Wanda and Agatha is never fully explained in the novel either. I enjoyed the team dynamic, as they are still learning to work together and trust each other. And each character has vastly different abilities. This was a fast-paced, quick read and a lot of fun. And when the team has a final showdown with the Triumvirate, it’s a thrilling and satisfying climactic ending.
