Wonder Woman: Warbringer
Diana was the only Amazon born on the island – all her sisters had earned their places by dying as warriors. She enters the footrace in order to prove her worth and even plans out a faster path to make victory hers and her mother proud. However, she is sidetracked by an explosion out at sea. She takes a detour into the water and saves a young girl, Alia, who Diana hides in a cave. Soon after, the island is affected by thunder, lightning, and earthquakes, the likes of which they have never seen. She knows it is due to the presence of Alia, who the Oracle calls the Warbringer, so Diana makes the difficult decision to take Alia off the island and attempt to save mankind from themselves.
The release of the movie has increased Wonder Woman’s popularity, and this book will only strengthen it. It is not a re-telling of the movie but another adventure to enjoy. While she is the focus, she is not the only one, and Bardugo does wonders with a story that doesn’t rely heavily on romance but features the special bonds between friends. It reads like a Rick Riordan adventure, appealing to both boys and girls.
