Princess 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 mortal. Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.
One thing you may not know about me is that I love DC. The Teen Titans animated show is one of my favorite shows. I love the characters, and Wonder Woman isn’t an exception. I prefer novels to comic books, so this entire DC Icon series was a blessing.
But, even if you aren’t a comic book fan, I recommend this book. It’s Leigh Bardugo! The writing is well-paced and delivers amazing descriptions based on the scene, be it the peaceful meadows of Themyscira or the gritty subway tunnels of New York City. Leigh Bardugo has an amazing skill with making the reader feel the scene, and the world on the page comes alive.
Things I loved:
- Diana’s innocent sass when it came to how men treated women.
- Alia’s comments/thoughts about race.
- The interactions between Diana and Alia – LOVED it.
What I didn’t care for:
- The plot – Yeah, this is kind of a big one. The plot is a huge part of any book. This one just didn’t grab me. I like Diana and Alia, but this books didn’t keep me reading into the night. There’s nothing wrong with the plot. It’s the same feelings I had toward Batman by Marie Lu. It was a good book, but it was a little boring at times.
So, overall, Wonder Woman: Warbringer gets four sparky bullets out of five.
