Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:

So, first off I know nothing about most comic book characters, but Wonder Woman has always been interesting. Plus, Leigh Bardugo wrote the book, so it had to be a win, right? Well… This is no Six of Crows. At least to me. Her other books have made me fall in love with her characters. This one I didn’t connect with them, but I didn’t hate them either.

Diana is strong. Well of course she is, she is Wonder Woman, but I loved her humor even when she wasn’t trying to be funny. Her and Alia had some interesting scenes. If you are all about girl power, then this book is definitely for you.

I don’t know what it was, but I found myself kind of bored in parts. I did like the growth of Diana and Alia, though. I just wanted more from this book!!!!!!

  1. I’m sorry that it wasn’t what you expected😞, I’m looking forward to giving it a chance but not because it’s a Wonder Woman book, just because it’s Leigh Bardugo’s and I love her, so maybe I feel like you once I read it, but I’ll see 😊😊

  2. I have honestly been debating about reading this. I do like Wonder Woman, but I am more of a Marvel fan than a DC one. Probably the biggest draw for me is that Leigh Bardugo wrote it. And the summary sounds like it could be fun. I guess I’ll just have to see how my TBRs look over the next few months.
