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.


 

3 Reasons You Should Read…

Wonder Woman: Warbringer
by Leigh Bardugo

 

  • Let’s start this off by saying that we would read ANYTHING that Leigh writes. Anything. But add that to Wonder Woman and you have every ounce of our attention. We’ve been so excited to check this one out ever since we caught wind of it. It didn’t disappoint. At all.
  • It’s all about characters for us and while we knew we would love reading more about Diana, we didn’t realize how much we’d love the rest of this diverse crew. Alia, Theo, Nim, and Jason all kept us captivated and the dialogue/banter between them was one of our favorite parts of this read.
  • Warbringer at its core is a book about female empowerment and friendship, but it’s also more than that. It’s action, plot twists, humor, mythology, a tiny bit of romance, and plenty of action. Basically, it’s everything. Whether you’re already a Wonder Woman fan, or new to the DC Universe, you need to get this one in your hands today.

Sister in battle, I am shield and blade to you. As I breathe, your enemies will know no sanctuary. While I live, your cause is mine.
