Overview

Wonder Woman: Warbringer (Signed Book) by Leigh Bardugo

The highly anticipated, entirely new coming-of-age story for the world's greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.

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.

Act fast! The first printing includes a poster of Diana! Each first printing in the DC Icons series will have a limited-edition poster—collect them all to create the full image!

"Warbringer is straight-up dazzling, every sentence waking up your senses with a 'Yeah, that's right, this is BRAND-NEW, SUCKAS!' punch."
—LIBBA BRAY, New York Times bestselling author of The Diviners

"Will absolutely satisfy pre-existing fans of Wonder Woman, but it also readily stands alone for non-superhero fans."
Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Wonder Woman is the epitome of a kick-butt heroine, and Bardugo does her justice with aplomb."
The Bulletin

"Bardugo breathes zippy new life into the story with a twisty plot, whip-smart characters, and her trademark masterful writing."

***REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED ON WHAT A NERD GIRL SAYS*** This is the first time that I’ve read something by Leigh that isn’t part of the Grisha world and I gotta say…this lady can write anything. I shouldn’t be surprised about that at this point but damn, she took one of the most iconic badass female characters to ever exist and made her badass at just sixteen years old. I’ve never been a huge Wonder Woman fan, not because I didn’t like her, I just hadn’t really read or watch anything but as soon as that Wonder Woman movie came out, I had to see it. I had to! Female main character, female director. I want more movies like this made and I want more respect out there for women creators so I practically ran to the movie theater to see it. I spent the whole movie in tears, not because the movie was sad, but god it was so refreshing to see this kind of movie and to see it do so well. It made me feel so good to see a dynamic, badass, vulnerable, emotional, strong (I could go on with adjectives forever) woman on screen. I’ve been used to these amazing characters in books; its sort of one of the best parts of young adult literature. Seeing it on screen was sort of magical and while reading this book, I felt like I experienced that magic once again. Diana is an amazing character. She’s smart, witty, funny and strong as hell but she’s not perfect. She makes mistakes and she always believes the best in people, always believes in the truth, has a hard time believing that people can lie and it gets her into rough moments but I think that’s why I like her so much. She’s so perfect but also not. She’s smart but she can be kind of clueless and it cracks me up. I loved that the movie put Diana in the past, but that this book put her in the present. It was fun to watch her navigate the modern world. She knew some things about it, but watching her struggle with technology and lingo and all of that was just fun. I also just loved the story. It was so so good. It starts so fast, right away, which might be jolting for some people but I was so ready. Diana meets Alia almost immediately, saving her within the first pages of the novel, and the story jumps right in. Its immediately action and they’re on the move from the beginning all the way to the end and I loved every moment of it. There were twists and turns and surprises that I did NOT expect at all. I loved how Leigh intertwined modern day science with the fantasy and mythology of Greek goddesses and legends. She did it so well. I honestly could not have predicted the way the story went and that’s what made me love it so much. And even though the movie and book were done by two different people who never even spoke to each other, I could feel the magic that is Diana Prince in both of them. Lastly, I loved, as always in a Leigh book, all the side characters! So many authors create these side characters that just feel like filler, not standing on their own, but not Leigh. Nim and Theo become two of my favorite characters. They’re so human, more human than any of the other main players in the novel, and they’re AMAZING. They are funny and stand out and strong and I love them as much if not more than Diana herself. I always appreciate some seriously great secondary character and having just finished the book a couple hours ago, I am still so attached and in love with Nim and Theo. Fantastic characters. While this book was written with a purpose of extending the DC universe and to generate more buzz for

It's a sad Wonder Woman day for this book princess and now I need to go cry somewhere. I'm never having highly anticipated books again, but I must be the princess of too many high expectations, which make some of my most desperate to read books fall flat for me. Ugh, me. I've never been a huge Wonder Woman fan before. I mean, I liked her well enough. She's my dad's favorite superhero (I think Lynda Carter might have something to do with that), so I've seen a few episodes, heard a few of her stories over the years. I saw the movie when it came out with my best friend, but I still didn't really get into the huge craze or anything. However, when I heard one of my favorite authors of all time was writing a book on her, I, of course, got super excited and Wonder Woman became a love. So, this book was put on a giant pedestal for me...and well, perhaps that's why it didn't go over as well for me. So, what went wrong? For me, it was the characters. Odd, seeing as in Bardugo's last book, it was the characterization that made it for me. I loved each one of those characters with every fiber of a my book being. However, in this one, I only enjoyed Diana, and the rest were...so mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. And then I especially disliked one of them. Diana was easily the best part of this story. I loved her so much. She was AMAZING. She was so totally the perfect Wonder Woman and fit all the characterization I've seen of her. She's an Amazon girl that's different the rest, trying to prove herself to her those that matter - her family, her people, and those that she wishes their respect. Yet, she's filled with so much heart and soul. She just wants to save the day and be the hero, and when she does and it all goes wrong, she stays loyal, true, and so extremely fierce. She kicks some major butt, is hilarious in her own way, and lives for the sisterhood. She's simply amazing, and I just wanted a whole book focused solely on her, kicking butt and discovering the eccentricities of the World of Man. Alia was okay. I liked her well enough, but I never felt anything for her. Whenever she was in peril, I was just like, oh, okay....which is not how I should have been feeling for a lead character. Nim? Theo? Mehhhhhhhhhhhhh. I didn't feel anything for them either. They were just kind of there, and no offense, but I forgot Theo was even there for a long time. Then we have Jason. I detested Jason. I sat there sending -_- faces at him the entire time. He was too pushy, rubbed me the wrong way with a lot of what he did, and I did not like how he treated his sister at all. And the romance plot line he brought to the story? Nooooooooooooooo. I thought it was unnecessary and found him unnecessary as well. If we had just had Alia and Diana as our focus, I think this story would have been far stronger. The plot was...well, I really, really enjoyed the first part of it, but I found the second part oddly not as entertaining to me - which is odd because it was where the most action was. I loved seeing Themyseria and the Amazons. Gosh, I wish we had more time there. And Diana and Alia fighting to navigate the seas and NYC? Omigosh, so much love. When the actions picked up, I kind of faltered. Bardugo does bring some very interesting twists and turns, but I just felt disconnected. and with those twists and turns, I also just felt confused because I didn't fully understand the mythology and world building that was being introduced.

We’ve all heard of Wonder Woman and I was really excited that there was a young adult novel coming out that featured Wonder Woman as the main character. Not only that, but it’s Diana as a teenager! The beginning held a lot of promise as we are with Diana as she makes the extremely difficult decision to save a young human female’s life and anger the Gods, or forfeit that human’s life and save her people from peril. Little does she know that the young girl she saved in the shipwreck is the warbringer. While the story immediately grabbed my interest, I didn’t feel any connection to the extra characters the author brought in. I mean, Alia’s brother, Jason, is apparently the love interest (sort of) for Diana, but I don’t fully grasp the attraction there. Theo (Jason’s bff) just seems so blasé about everything and just goes with the flow. He’s always drinking and just shrugging things off. Nim seemed like she was there to be the snarky best friend. I just never felt a connection to them and I’m not overly sure why. I was really excited when the author brought them in because I knew it was going to make the story more interesting but I never fully embraced them for some reason. While I may not have necessarily loved the extra characters, I did love that this book has quite a bit of mythology to it. Apparently, there are Gods and Goddesses that do not want to see the warbringer harmed. They want the war and destruction to happen. So they do all that they can to interfere with Diana’s plans to get Alia to the location that will free her from the curse. Between Alia’s warbringer power causing chaos around her, the Gods interfering, and some crazy militia group out to kill the warbringer, there was a lot happening. Warbringer was a fun young adult look at Wonder Woman before she became a legend. I’m not overly familiar with her story so I can’t way whether or not this jives with her history, but it was entertaining all the same. It was great getting to see such an iconic character as a teenager and watching them as they try to discover who they are inside and follow their dreams.

Holy crap on a cracker, this book was freaking amazing! I am utterly speechless, floored, stupefied, and every other possible synonymous adjective. But am I surprised to be feeling this way after finishing this book? Of course not! I'm talking about Leigh freaking Bardugo here. My idol, my inspiration, and in my humble (and totally unbiased) opinion—the most awe-inspiring and talented author of our time. I also should mention that I have been a long-time Batman fan (so of course, I'm dying for Marie Lu's installment in this series), but . . . I never got into Wonder Woman. Then this book happened. Bardugo truly brings the fierce Amazon to life, and not only that! She also empowers the other female characters by highlighting all of their different forms of strength that they possess, while also emphasizing that none of those strengths are any less valuable or important than the brute physical strength Diana was born with. As a whole, Wonder Woman: Warbringer is a lesson in feminism, sisterhood, love, loss, and holy hell—it's a damn masterpiece. I will never be skilled enough to find the adequate words to describe what Bardugo's writing does to my soul, though I will keep endeavoring to try. However to Leigh herself, I can only say thank you. You continue to raise the bar higher and higher, and it's truly special. Honestly, there is no other author that can move me the way Leigh does. She absolutely never ceases to impress. Definitely as soon as you are able—but especially if you are a Wonder Woman fan—you must get your hands on this outstanding book!

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo Book One of the DC Icons series Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers Publication Date: August 29, 2017 Rating: 4 stars Source: ARC sent by the publisher Summary (from Goodreads): She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN.

If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war. What I Liked: I expected to enjoy this book, but it is always so satisfying when that comes to pass. Leigh Bardugo has written a wonderful. thrilling story, with strong friendships, fierce girls, and high stakes. I don't know much about the DC Icons, or Wonder Woman, but I really loved this story. Before she became Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons. Diana has always been different compared to her Amazonian sisters, because of her origin. She was born of the island, whereas all of the other women came to the island as warriors. Diana has always wanted to leave the island, or at the very least, prove herself to her sisters in arms. When a ship wrecks at the coast, Diana knows better than to save humans and bring them to the island - but she tries anyway. A girl, Alia Keralis, is the only survivor. Diana learns from the island's oracle that Alia is the Warbringer, a harbinger of death and war, descended from Helen of Troy. Diana must bring Alia to the resting place of Helen, in Greece, or war will consume the World of Man, and Themyscira too. This story starts at a quick pace and never lets up. Within the first chapter, the conflict begins, with the shipwreck and Diana saving Alia. Alia is of the modern world, and she thinks Diana is part of a cult on a very strange but very beautiful island. When Diana takes Alia away from the island, they end up in New York, which is Alia's home. From there, the real battle begins, as there are many who want to kill the Warbringer. I love the pacing of this story - there was never a dull moment, but it wasn't too fast either. The story is told in third person, but not entirely from Diana's POV. Some chapters are told from Alia's POV. I liked that this story was told in third person and from both girls' POV. Diana is a complete stranger to the World of Man, though she has read many books available to her on the island.

This book is perfection! Between all the Wonder Woman hype this year and the fact that this book is written by LEIGH BARDUGO, it's impossible to go into this one without incredibly high expectations. Rest assured, my friends, this does not disappoint. First of all, Diana's character was phenomenal. She was so well-developed and an absolute pleasure to read. She was so true to the original Wonder Woman but even wittier and more relatable. This Diana actually reads very similarly to the way that Gal Gadot portrayed Wonder Woman in the movie, so if you're a massive fan of that movie like I am, you will definitely love Bardugo's take on this iconic character. No one writes a squad like Leigh Bardugo writes a squad, and she has certainly done it here again! This cast of characters is charming and dynamic, and I fell absolutely in love with them. Their dialogue is witty, real, and so entertaining. These characters have Leigh Bardugo written all over them. As a huge fan of Bardugo's myself, I was so happy to be able to see her writing shine through in this story, and I'm certain her other fans will be equally thrilled. I don't want to say too much more about this book, because I feel like reading this book is a very special experience for readers, and I don't want my words to influence anyone else's experience too much. But I will conclude by saying that I LOVED the ending. It was badass, feminist perfection and, in my opinion, everything that it should have been for this story.

Oh, how I loved this book!! Diana, Princess of the Amazons longs to prove herself to her mother and their people.  She knows she is capable and worthy of being an amazon, even though others might disagree with that assessment.  When she saves the life of the girl Alia, Diana realizes she’s set in motion a chain of events that could destroy Themyscira and the modern world.  For Alia is a Warbringer–a descendent of Helen of Troy–destined to be the catalyst to start a great world war.  Now, Diana and Alia are in a race against time to reach a mythical spring to end the curse of the Warbringers for good. But with enemies closing in, they might not make it out with their lives. I just.  Wow.  I—SO GOOD!! This book was everything you wanted Wonder Woman to be–just, courageous, kind, beautiful, strong, and kick ass. I loved this version of Wonder Woman before she became Wonder Woman.  Leigh did such a great job of balancing the character that we know and love while still adding her own personal touch to her as well.  In fact, all the characters were great.  This is no surprise since Leigh is Queen of writing strong, complex characters.  Alia was really dynamic and I loved that the story is told in her point of view as well.  Her interactions with Diana were great and they’re able to bring out the best in one another, while still learning about themselves in the process. The secondary characters were just as interesting in Theo, Jason, and Nim.  They all brought something different to the table and were diverse, but not for the sake of being diverse (which is not an easy thing to accomplish).  It just made sense with who they were.  I feel like everybody can identify with parts of all of them at least once throughout the novel.  Each one was strong in itself and could hold their own when put next to Diana, who is such a monumental character. The plot was filled with action, romance, Greek history, twists, drama, death, and retribution.  I loved every minute of it.  What I loved the best were the action sequences.  Leigh is able to write in a way where I could picture the scene in my head playing out like a movie.  Now I’m just waiting for the announcement that they’re making a film adaptation of this because I want to see Diana kicking ass in real time with some of these scenes. The book also focuses a lot on friendship, especially female friendship, and doing the right thing even when it’s not the easy decision.  Which is what Wonder Woman is ALL ABOUT.  The ending was perfect and not necessarily what you expected.  We see a glimpse of what is in store for Diana and what she’ll become, but nothing spoilery. Pick this one up.  Like, the day it comes out.  I promise you, it’ll inspire you to go and kick some ass (in the best possible way).

I have never really been drawn to Wonder Woman, but I will read anything from Leigh, so that's why I picked it up. And I'm so happy I did. I love love loved Diana. She's more than just strong. She's smart and blunt and a serious BAMF. I loved seeing her navigate the modern world. Alia was awesome, but it was really Nim and Theo who stole the show. The action pretty much starts at page one and doesn't let go until the end. There are fights and banter and cars getting thrown and gods and myths and some things I didn't expect. The imagery is creepy and fantastic and I'm sort of hoping we'll get more. **Huge thanks to Random House for handing these out at YallWest**

I was really excited to read Warbringer but I also not sure what to expect. I loved Wonder Woman since I was a kid and watched the Linda Carter series so I wasn’t sure if I could wrap my head around Wonder Woman being a young adult. Of course as always, Leigh Bardugo delivered an awesome novel. I love Leigh’s writing in her fantasy series and the Grishaverse she created. I was really curious about how it would be to have her write something a little more contemporary. Although Wonder Woman is obviously Superhero realm, it still occurs in the real world. I felt like she did not miss a beat. Her writing was flawless and I love the way that she can keep a story moving. The continuity and pacing flowed very easily. I thought the way this story was slipped into the Wonder Woman cannon was extremely clever. It fit into the universe but also managed to be it’s own standalone story. I loved the plot and the inclusion of the character of Warbringer. I felt invested in the cast of characters, which of course caused more emotional damage to me when anything happened to them. It definitely had the action and adventure you would expect from something involving a Superhero. I don’t want to give anything away on it because I loved going into it not knowing what to expect and coming out the other side completely in love with the book. We also had some great settings and lore to add to my overall image of the world. It was great to spend some time on Themyscira. Getting to know other Amazons besides Diana. Also having a little bit of her own origin story. It gave so much more to knowing about Diana and her character. So as a Wonder Woman fan, I loved the book. I would definitely recommend it to other Wonder Woman fans. It doesn’t matter if you have been following her from the beginning or just recently fell into her story. I think this is a book to be enjoyed by everyone.
