Overview

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."
—Booklist

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Cinematic battles and a race against time keep the excitement high, but the focus on girls looking out for each other is what makes this tie-in shine."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review (for Wonder Woman: Warbringer)

"Bardugo's set up is shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for." New York Times Book Review (for Shadow and Bone)

"The darker it gets for the good guys, the better." Entertainment Weekly (for Shadow and Bone)

"Cracking page-turner with a multiethnic, band of misfits."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review (for Six of Crows)

"A delicious blend of masterfully executed elements . . . Bardugo outdoes herself."Booklist (for Crooked Kingdom)

★ 2017-05-10
DC Comics opens its new line of media tie-in novels with this Wonder Woman origin story.Bardugo introduces readers to Wonder Woman with two alternating perspectives: Diana, princess of Themyscira, and Alia, a 17-year-old New Yorker. While most Amazons are women warriors rewarded with new lives after death, Diana alone is untested, molded from clay, eager to prove herself worthy. Diana's rescue of Alia from a shipwreck forces the princess into exile in order to prevent a foreordained global catastrophe. Alia wonders if her unusually dressed, oddly naïve rescuer is in a cult. Nerdy, orphaned, biracial, and identifying as black, Alia is awkward and mostly friendless despite her family's massive wealth. Rescued from disaster by this bronze-skinned white girl who looks "like a supermodel who moonlighted as a cage fighter," Alia learns her very existence might cause the deaths of millions. With the help of her brother and their two best friends (snarky Brazilian Theo and Indian Nim, who's queer, fat, fashionable, and fabulous), Alia accompanies Diana on a quest to end the cycle of death. This will absolutely satisfy pre-existing fans of Wonder Woman, but it also readily stands alone for non-superhero fans (although with the first live-action Wonder Woman film opening two months before the novel's launch, it's likely to contribute to a new fan base for Diana). Cinematic battles and a race against time keep the excitement high, but the focus on girls looking out for each other is what makes this tie-in shine. Crossed fingers for a sequel. (Superhero fantasy. 12-16)
