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 just finished reading this last week, and I kind of love Leigh Bardugo's take on Diana's origin story. It's also got me very intrigued by the rest of the DC Icons' stories to come!

  3. I've always been a little more of a Marvel girl, and my favorite was Wolverine. I never actually had much interest in Wonder Woman until I saw the movie this year and I love it. I even did a painting of it! lol

  4. I'd have to say flying, as I have flying dreams a lot. Or is the ability to make your own money a superpower? I'd take that, lol! Great cover, and I'm excited to see the movie when it comes out on DVD.

  5. I'm so excited for this whole series and the authors they've brought on for them. I can't say I have a favorite superhero, but I've been loving all the Marvel and DC movies and think their teen selves are an awesome direction to explore!
