She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
Leigh Bardugo + Wonder Woman sounds pretty great right?? Well, believe me when I say, it’s even better than it sounds. This was easily one of the best books I’ve read this year. In fact, I think it’s my favorite Bardugo book yet. The characterization is incredible, the story is addictive from the kick-off, and the writing is exquisite. If you’ve read Six Of Crows or Crooked Kingdom, you won’t be surprised to hear that this book features a kick ass group dynamic. The relationships between the characters and their love for each other instantly creates a seamless and thorough insight to the characters as individuals.
In the beginning of the book, Diana finds herself drawn to save Alia, damn the consequences. But, as is life, the consequences still come and they might mean the end of the world.
Diana and Alia are thrown together in a whirlwind journey of peril as they fight to save the world. Immediately the audience is invested in their mission and immersed in the story of Wonder Woman and the Warbringer. The book is absolutely thrilling- from the beginning, when we’re introduced to Diana and her island of bad-ass superwoman, to the end, where we find ourselves attached to this eclectic group of teenagers and their mission to save the world.
