The highly anticipated coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.

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.

I recently watched Wonder Woman last week so I still have a lot of feelings about the movie and the characters. I've been soothing my soul with fanfiction and listening to the soundtrack, but I would love to read this book and experience the characters more. I'm so excited to read about the young Diana, as much as I love the kickass adult Diana.

Also I'm super intrigued to read stories by Leigh Bardugo outside of the Grisha Universe. As much as I love the Six of Crows crew and the stories, I'm interested to see how Leigh's writing is outside of this universe. (Also off topic, but I'm highly interested in her next series after this one and The Language of Thorns.)

Happy Reading!
