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’m sitting here right now, trying to write a review for this book and I literally just can’t think of a fitting first sentence because I’m still so overwhelmed by how amazing this book was. ‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ is one of the books you pretty much fly through, that absolutely absorbs you right from the beginning and then leaves you sitting there at the end of it, staring at the last page because you can’t believe that it’s already over. It’s definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year so far and my high expectations for it were definitely not disappointed.
‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ is a very gripping read and there wasn’t a single scene in this novel that bored me. It was full of plot twists that absolutely took me by surprise and left me sitting there with my mouth agape. The book was also very well written though that shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s read at least one of Leigh Bardugo’s novels prior to picking up this little masterpiece. I absolutely adore her writing style and she’s slowly but surely becoming one of my all-time favorite authors. She’s just amazing at writing fighting scenes that are realistic and varied so that you won’t feel like you’re reading the same thing over and over again even if there are several action-packed scenes in her books. Another thing she’s really good at is slipping in funny moments when you don’t expect anything like that to happen and my book is once again full of green sticky notes that I use to highlight funny things.
But one of the best things about ‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ were definitely the amazing characters Leigh Bardugo has created. Especially, the strong female characters were amazing and kicked butt which I absolutely loved.
All in all, ‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ is a book that definitely deserves 5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it and I’m probably going to guard it like gold. It’s a novel I would recommend to pretty much everyone and I absolutely can’t wait for Marie Lu’s book because I just love the idea of this entire series.
