Recommended for: Superheroes lovers

Genre: YA Fantasy
Type: Standalone Book 1 of 4 from DC Icons series
POV: Third Person

Growing up, all Diana ever wanted was to belong. As an Amazon princess, she had expectations to meet and it didn't help when her own people questioned her position. But when she came across a mortal, she knew she could be heading to a path of glory not realizing how it would change her future.

Alia Keralis wanted to break free. Coming from a family of scientists, she understood the glory in pursuing knowledge. However, she would have never thought it would lead her into a battle of survival.

I have to admit, Wonder Woman is not a superhero I'm familiar with. Still I was looking forward to this one and glad to say I really enjoyed it.

She did want glory. She did want the chance to prove herself, not just with a footrace or a wrestling match, but with a hero’s quest, something no one could deny.

This book is about Diana before she found her calling. I like how she was an underdog and had insecurities. And while she wanted personal glory, she wasn't selfish when it involved others.

Warbringer. Procatalysia. Haptandra. They could call it whatever they wanted. It sounded a lot like monster.

Alia was smart and rational. She had a tremendous burden resting on her shoulders, yet she didn't falter.

What I love the most about this book is how it emphasized on female empowerment. All female characters were strong/smart/independent or a combination of it. There's also the unwavering friendship no matter what the circumstances.

She swept the lasso out, hooked it over a boulder, snapped it tight, and swung the rock. Pinon tried to dart away, but the boulder caught the edge of her shoulder, knocking her backward with bone-shattering force.

The book started really good and I love Greek mythology so I enjoyed that element in the story. The middle part felt a little slow at time, but it quickly picked up once the ass kicking actions started. And I love that one literal ass kicking scene lol!

Wonder Woman: Warbringer is a story of a group of friends rising up to the occasion in a journey of finding their rightful place. It would appeal to readers who enjoy action packed fantasy.
