Publisher's Summary

Peter Parker's life has hit a peaceful stretch. No evildoers have tried to flatten him in weeks, his marriage to Mary Jane is stronger than ever, and he's enjoying his job as a high-school science teacher. Life is good. Naturally, that doesn't last. 

When Peter learns that his old enemy, the Rhino, is on a rampage in Times Square, he suits up as Spider-Man to stop the destructive villain in his tracks. But he's unexpectedly foiled in his attempts by the Black Cat, a former ally and old flame. The Cat informs Peter that the Rhino is just a distraction - the real threat comes from a group of Ancients, members of the same race as the being called Morlun, who Spidey defeated in battle years earlier. The Ancients are now looking to exact revenge - and hope to steal Spider-Man's life force in the process. 

To defeat such powerful beings, Spider-Man is going to need all the help he can get, especially from the Black Cat. But what will Mary Jane Parker have to say about that? Peter isn't sure which is worse - the Ancients trying to drain his life force or the wrath of a jealous wife....

For 90’s comics fans.

I had so much fun listening to this book. Jim Butcher is the perfect author for Spider-Man. This book is short and sweet and like I said. Fun. The most important thing to know is it’s before the reboot in comics. He’s married to MJ and a teacher. He’s no teenager in this. 10/10.

Jim Butcher is the best

I am not a big fan of Spiderman however I bought this book because Jim Butcher wrote it. He never disappoints he’s a master storyteller. Could you please write another Dresden novel?

Good book

I'm not a huge follower of Spider-Man but I am a Jim Butcher fan and with that being said I enjoyed the book alot and was able follow along with just the basic knowledge of the comic book s. So if you want a fun read about a superhero go ahead and get this book.

If Dresden has super powers.

The title says it all. I am a huge marvel fan and a huge Dresden fan. I decided this had to be good. It did not disappoint. First person story told by Butcher. If the characters were different, and James Marsters was behind the mic, we’d have a new Dresden story (come on Peace Talks!)

But, Jack Meloche is a GREAT Peter.

Don’t worry, I loved the story without the similarities to Dresden.

If you’re on the fence at all, get this book.

Jim Butcher's infamous Spider-Man story

I really did enjoy it. I am generally a big fan of Jim's work, but I don't love everything he does. So I think I can be unbias in my judgments. This was really fun for me. I have never listed to any marvel audiobooks prior to this. I am really ready to try some other ones now. Thank for everyone's efforts in bring this out.

Great For Fans!

I really liked this book. I've been slowly working my way through the Marvel novels and this one is probably my favorite so far. The story was engaging and fun to listen to, and I really enjoyed the narrator and his voice. He did a fantastic Peter Parker. Though, fair warning, the voice is similar to Peter's VA in Web of Shadows.

All in all, a great read/listen! Fully recommended!

Fantastic

This is better than expected. But I was hoping it to be little more darker, as indicated by the title: The Darkest Hours.

But the story and formation of characters and in-depth details of them really kept me on board all the way till the end.

Fun weekend with Spiderman

Jim Butcher is great at writing from the inside of character's heads. Anyone should be able to keep up with which version of Spidey this is. Good mix of known villains and allies along with a splash of Peter's job to round out a story that seemed like it was longer than it actually is.....in a good way.

Pretty good Spider-man novel

I am a big fan of Jim Butcher, and a big fan of the older Spider-man that Hollywood keeps depriving us of. This book was great, though throughout you can absolutely tell that Jim was still in a Dresden Files mindset when he was writing it. Not that that's a bad thing- just noticeable. Overall would recommend, even if it is pretty short.
