~Waiting on Wednesday~ Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons #1)

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons #1) by Leigh Bardugo
Out:  8/29

From Goodreads:
                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.

Why I’m Waiting:
                I love my superhero movies and I’m excited for the Wonder Woman movie.  Now I see a book coming out from and author I love…..count me in!


                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.  Also don't forget to check out my giveaway for a SIGNED copy of Blacksouls (Blackhearts #2) by Nicole Castroman open until Saturday evening!

  3. I'm seeing a lot of Wonder Woman stuff around right now. I'll probably get round to seeing the film eventually as I did enjoy the tv series as a kid.
