Publisher's Summary

Seeking to cure his rare blood disorder, Dr. Michael Morbius instead cursed himself with an insatiable lust for human blood. While trying to cure his horrific condition, he has become allied with Amanda Saint, whose sister, Catherine, is one of the leaders of the Demon-Fire Cult. Also known as Poison Lark, Catherine Saint has two goals above all else: to bring Satan to Earth, thus unleashing the powers of Hell, and to kill Morbius and Amanda. 

Morbius and Amanda follow the cult's trail to New York City, determined to stop Poison-Lark at any cost. But when they run afoul of an underground fight club that uses monsters as their pawns in the arena, Morbius becomes the star attraction, forced to kill or be killed....

Should be called…

Literally everyone but Morbius the Living Vampire.

The story followed Morbius for maybe 1/4 of the book. The rest was telling what happened to other people. It read like a textbook and I’m thrilled to be done with it.

Great book for teenage girls and ginger confused boys

I thought this book was going to be so much better. This is Morbius one of the best Spider-Man villains there was. This book however it’s nothing Bundt teenage girls reminiscing over their angst and basically drawing parallels to little confused boys wanted to come out of the closet but hating themselves for doing it. It’s pretty sad.
I guess it was too much to hope in today’s climate for this to just be a good superhero villain story.

I Don't get it

Look, I REALLY wanted to like this book. I LOVE Marvel comics,but this book... YUCK!
(1) IT'S NOT AN ORIGIN STORY - and it should have been (since it's the first audiobook ). I didn't know about Morbius and flet like I had walked into a movie half way through. (2) A "Demon Fire Cult" MIGHT have made sense in 1942...but come on. The red hooded robes, everyone carries a long knife, they live underground in an abandoned church UNDER the subways....Ugh! (3) THE ENDING was ridiculous. [A] Why did that last monster blood kill Morbius, none of the others did? Why would Morbious hold onto that ring? [B] why was the ring magical? [C] Why did the ring turn to dust after bringing Morbius back to life?!?? I just hope the movie that comes out on 2022 will be better.

lazy writing. predictable

I love morbius as a villain and character, but this is easily the worst marvel/DC/COMIC audio book i have ever heard. I have a desire to finish books despite being bad. I spent more time wanting it to end than wanting it to go on.

Worth A Try

Absolutely loved it! Fun story, though a little cheesy at times. This is a novel based on comic book characters so that's forgivable. Well written. The A and B plots come together for a satisfying finale. Narration was serviceable and overall does not harm or hinder the enjoyment of the story.

Absolutely terrible

I am a HUGE Marvel fan and I enjoy anything Marvel. I was excited to listen to this book, especially because the movie is coming out next year. I was so disappointed in the entire story plot as well as the voices of each of the characters. As I said, I’m a huge fan of Marvel and so I finished the book. I wish I could get my credit back and listen to something better.

Awesome Read!!

I am so happy that Morbius got an audiobook, it played very well and gave the characters a further life beyond the comics and TV shows.

Amazing Book!

This was a great listen from start to finish. I believe that this performance sets the bar high for the movie. Hopefully there are more stories for Morbius as well as other less known Marvel characters.

Great book

This was very well written, and enjoyable to listen to. It is very gory but if you’re able to get past that you’ll likely appreciate the character development. I haven’t listened or read a marvel comic or book before, but this was a fantastic read. Both the author and speaker helped to bring the story to life.

Great Story

overall this is an incredible book, the story is great and the gentleman reading it is amazing. However, men doing the voice of females is not easy on the ears. perhaps have a female do female voices in future.
