Diana is desperate to prove herself to her warrior sisters. But when the opportunity comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law to save a mere mortal, Alia Keralis. With this single heroic act, Diana may just doomed the world.
Alia is a warbringer – a descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery. Dina and Alia will face an army of enemies, mortal and divine, determined to destroy or possess the Warbringer.
To save the world, they must stand side by side against the tide of war.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer is a tale of destiny whether it be defying, fulfilling or forging one’s own. It is also riddled with surprises for both the characters and the readers.
Why it orked for me:
- We had strong female characters whose strength wasn’t or wasn’t limited to physical strength.
- The relationships and interactions between the characters were deep and realistic.
- While we didn’t get paragraphs upon paragraphs of descriptions, we were given just enough details to form the scenes and settings in our minds.
- Reading Diana learn and speculate about human beings was hilarious.
- The surprises kept coming. They weren’t too far out that they seemed to come from no where but they weren’t obvious.
