WONDER WOMAN: WARBRINGER by Leigh Bardugo
DC Icons Series (Book 1)
Random House Books for Young Readers
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: An action packed story steeped in mythology that has strong female characters kicking butt and taking names.
WONDER WOMAN: WARBRINGER is more than just a tale of superhero saving the day. By weaving together the action and adventure with the mythology and real-life issues so seamlessly, the author opens the book up to a much wider audience.
As you read, you will not only meet Diana as a younger version of herself, but there is also a full cast of other characters that balance out the story. At the end of it, I thought that Leigh Bardugo brought another dimension to Diana. She honored the character that we have all known while still keeping it fresh and entertaining.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received the audio book to review from the publisher.
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.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
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.
