Stole my soul

Catwoman soulstealer

What a refreshing story for catwoman! I really found myself invested in this story and found it really original and entertaining. I would recommend this story to any and all book lovers, DC fans, and just open minded people that are not quick to judge negatively now or days with what you see with most common reviewers.

I found the story to be really good and a great end game that made it all worth listening to. Makes me wish why there are not more books out there for catwoman, I mean not in comic form.

beautifully read, complex, endearing story

I love the complexity of this catwoman, she has real heart and a truly beautiful motive for her crimes.
it made a rather shallow character (depending on which depiction) a much more fleshed out storyline that made her relatable and made you cheer her own...she is definitely an anti-hero in this version and a bonified bad ass with a heart of gold.

Written like a bad Tumblr fan-fiction

While occasionally fun and exciting, Catwoman: Soulstealer feels more like a Tumblr fan-fiction rather than an honest portrayal of the IP it bases itself on. The characters feel more like props to service a plot that takes way too long to surface.

If you want to read a book with kickass female characters, topics of social justice, and characters based off the rich pantheon of the DC Universe, read Wonder Woman: Warbringer instead.

Cativating!

I wasn't sure I would be so enthralled by this tale except that I love Sarah J Maas. She did not disappoint. I have always enjoyed the Batman movies, but had never read any books. I loved the delicately woven story of relationships between each of the characters.

Catwoman gets a starring role and a new origin

Selina Kyle is the star of this book and you cannot help but cheer her on. This is a new take on the origin of the Catwoman, and it does a good job. In the world of Gotham City and the DC universe, it all makes perfectly logical sense. The author wisely choosing to not co-star Batman, who could easily overshadow the star here. Instead we have Batwing representing the Batman family. That turned out to be a good choice. He can act more freely than Batman with his more rigid personality.

There is a lot of heart and humor here along with large doses of action. Recommended to fans of the DC universe, action novels, and strong female characters. Well worth the the time and money.

MEH.

Okay. I can look past that is, in a different DC universe and things are really different. I found at times that the only reason I was still listing was because the voice talent really was good. The story on the other hand 75% okay and 25% pure trash. This book was more written for a person that thinks even a billionaire black guy is oppressed by society, and a female is always a sex symbol and has to fight off this stereotype. The story itself fell really flat, I found myself wondering how batwing could do anything with such a crippling problem , and all he did all book long was get his butt kicked ( he did not win 1 fight). Some will love it but I think more for the stellar vocal performance than the story itself.

The lady

This story is full of twists and turns that I didn't expect. It was completely different from what I had anticipated when I had first seen the title of the book and it outright surprised me at how good it was. To the Lady of Gotham, Cheers.

Catwoman as she should be portrayed.

If you’re a fan of the character like I am you’ll love it. If you aren’t a fan of the character it might turn you into one. Selina is one of the best characters in DC Comics and she’s well represented here, despite some minor reinventions.
