Title: Wonder Woman: Warbringer
By: Leigh Bardugo
Call #: YA Fiction Bardu.L
An updated origin story for Diana, princess of Themyscira by the author of the Grisha Trilogy and Six of Crows. Our story opens with Diana saving a drowning Alia and her subsequent adventure in man’s world to end an ancient line of Warbringers – descendants of Helen and catalysts for apocalyptic violence and bloodshed. This book is a refreshing change of pace for Diana and the time she spends in mans world. With a strong focus on female friendship and character development this book will make even the most passive fan fall in love. I will be honest with you, too. Wonder Woman is in my top three favorite fictional characters of all time and going into this book I was very, very wary but Bardugo does her justice. It’s clear she loves Diana as well. This book will appeal to anyone interested in mythology, the comics, or the movie.
