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 was sent an advance copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer back in May and I couldn't contain my happiness. It is one of my Most Anticipated Titles this year but I didn't devour it right away. I read it right after I watched Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and it was the perfect time to read it. I was still super hungover with the movie that I was hoping to cure it with another dose of awesomeness which is Leigh Bardugo but it only gotten worse. I NEED MORE. I. NEED. MORE.


I have everything I need in this book! I fell deeply inlove with the book not only because of Diana, the kickass plot or Queen Leigh but because of how diverse the characters are. And most importantly, they have been given equal amounts of 'airtime' (pagetime? exposure?) to really expound their parts in the story. It was amazing to see that this book didn't just revolve around Diana but with the rest of the crew. Also, I'm floored that we have a superb friendship in this book, Diana and Alia are the perfect BFFs! Leigh just knew how to empower women and that doesn't always need to have THAT romance in it. NIM IS MY FAVORITE!!


There's now way I could give justice to how hilarious and fabulous this book is. Leigh proved that she's not only an NYT Bestselling Author but she could be THE NYT Bestselling Author. Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave me what I hoped and more. This one speaks volumes. I cannot believe I'm this lucky to have read another bestseller in advance! Truly unputdownable, astounding, brilliant!!!!
