I love Wonder Woman…more specifically, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. When I had the opportunity to review Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, I jumped at it. After Christmas I finally was able to sit down and read it.
I was disappointed. The first 140 pages were interesting, but weren’t gripping me. I seriously was debating not finishing the book (too many other books to read), but powered through. I’m GLAD that I did! It picked up and flew through the last 160 pages.
The story follows a young Diana (pre-Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman movies), who saves the life of a teenage girl from our time. Having done so results in a series of cataclysmic events occurring that Diana and the young girl must prevent.
I really enjoyed the overall story line; how the characters and plot were developed over the course of the book. There were some plot twists that I wasn’t expecting, which were a nice surprise. By the end of the book I was cheering for the characters and fully invested in their survival.
Don’t get me wrong. This was not a life changing work of fiction, but it was an enjoyable read, that I wanted to pick back up.
