Wonder Woman is my favorite superhero, so I was thrilled to see this novel come out in the DC Icons series and Leigh Bardugo did a first rate job in bringing her to life as a young woman. Diana's bond with Alia was touching and genuine and kept the two of them in the fight even through a MAJOR plot twist. I also enjoyed seeing Diana visit NYC and her tips to the guy and his friends on the subway made for one of my favorite scenes. Even readers who did not know they were into Wonder Woman will appreciate this novel with its Percy Jackson similarities. Looking forward to Catwoman!

It's teenage Wonder Woman in a "subverting classical mythology" YA read. It is definitely plot driven, but Bardugo does a great job with the writing as well. There were a couple of points where I wanted to check out because it started to feel like a typical YA Romance (which is not my particular favorite of Diana of Themyscira), but I'm glad I stuck with it - appearances in this book are not always what they seem.

I recommend for WW fans, YA fans, and explosion junkies alike.

Soooooo your mileage may vary, but I loved this story. Things that made it perfect for me:
1. It's about found family (MY FAVORITE)
2. Gals being pals (ALSO MY FAVORITE)
3. Super-powered fights (I like explosions in my stories)
4. Diverse cast of characters (I loved Alia and her friends)

Things that make it good for other readers too:
1. Fast paced and cinematic storytelling
2. Mixing new characters in with canon faves
3. Gals being pals (EVERYONE'S FAVORITE)

I think it does a good job of giving us iconic Wonder Woman stuff and blending that with a story that doesn't detract from canon and still provides really interesting new characters that could carry a story on their own. You should try it!
