What is it about?
This story is a re-imagining of Wonder Woman. I had initially expected it to be very similar to the movie, but I was pleasantly surprised by how different it was.
Diana is a young Amazon on the Island of Themyscira. Only, she’s not really an Amazon, is she? Her mother sculpted her from clay and she’s not as fast or as strong as her sisters, and she doesn’t quite feel like she belongs. On an island where warriors were given a chance at new life, Diana is the only one who wasn’t “Battle Born”. She longs to earn her place among her sisters.
Was it good?
This story was brilliant. I really enjoyed reading it, and found myself obsessing over it even in my dreams.
I really don’t know what I can say, other than Leigh Bardugo did an amazon job. (Haha.)
Might does not make a hero. You can build a thousand soldiers, and not one will have a hero’s heart.
Has anyone read any of the other DC novels? Catwoman by Maas or Batman by Lu?
