Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated coming-of-age story for the world's greatest super hero: Wonder Woman. By the number one New York Times best-selling 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.

A whole lot of fun

I thought that this would be a a nice child/teenage type genre. I was wrong. A very entertaining, sometimes quite funny adventure story. I can't wait for the next installment in the series. FYI: I never got into comic books growing up & even now.

Good narration, but flat characters

What would have made Wonder Woman: Warbringer better?

The characters just didn't do it for me, not even Diana. And if I don't care about the characters, it's tough to care about the plot.

What about Mozhan Marno’s performance did you like?

The narration is very good. Mozhan does a great job differentiating the voices of the characters while never feeling like she is putting on a voice.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadly pretty disappointed in this one. Been getting back into super hero prose lately, and was hoping this would be good. If you want a better super hero book check out Spider-man Miles Morales by Jason Reynolds.

We are all Wonder Woman!!!!

I'm a huge Wonder Woman fan I read the comics watch the animated movies and was the 1st in line to see the 1st motion picture of Wonder Woman. my opinion of this book is fair. Trust me when I say it was great. Diana, Alia, Nim, and Theo are the best. You can see and hear the hero young Diana is to become. And what's even better is Nim and Alia are not as strong as Diana, but they are just as much a hero as she is, and there love and friendship for each other is what makes them really powerful. I can not recommend this book enough for fans of the character or even if you are a casual fan. you will love it.

I hope there are more to come

I am a life long fan and am going to look for more books from this author. This is a story that will hook you from the very beginning and not let you go. It’s everything a super hero story should be.

Leigh Bardugo a Warrior of Words

As usual, Bardugo has crafted a story with all the elements that makes her writing so mesmerizing. Her visuals and clear depictions of the actions and thoughts of her characters is enough to draw any reader or listener deep into her world. I'm not a huge comic geek, more like a geek in training, but the background story and all of the explanations of Diana's upbringing was so in depth, the rest of the story was just icing on the cake. I recommend this tale to all my middle school and high school female students ( and boys) for it's empowering statement for women everywhere.

Truly Wonderful

I have loved Wonder Woman since early childhood. I am even proud to admit I still read her monthly comic despite my 47 years! I almost did not buy Ms. Bardugo's story for fear of disappointment...and that would have been a shame. What a wonderful, truly epic, yet touchingly human coming of age story for my favorite hero (sometimes demi goddess). Not only is 17yo Diana's character beautifully rendered, but the rest of the characters are also so fully fleshed out that I came to care for them. I loved the humor in this story and I did shed some tears. Ms. Marno's performance was gorgeous! I am lazy and tend not to write reviews even when I really like a book...this review is proof that this story is special and touched me beyond immediate reading/listening enjoyment. So highly recommended.

Loves it!

Story is based on current times and it was great! Loved the time spent in Themyscira and the description of life there. Couldn't help but think and mix the story lines of previous Wonder Woman stories but this story is a standalone tale that holds its own. Ready for the next WW adventure from Ms Bardugo! Wonder Woman ❤️

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

This was even better than I thought it would be, not than I expected something less than incredible from Leigh Bardugo. She's one of my favorites, but there are so many superhero remakes, that it often worries me.

I guess I feel like sometimes there's a limit when it comes to superhero stories, a point at which they start to seem repetitive or like there's too much of the same, which is why I liked this so much. This entire story is pre-Wonder Woman. It's just about Diana when she's young, and it includes some fascinating characters and enjoyable friendships.

There's plenty of intrigue and action scenes to keep things exciting, and the side characters are quirky, diverse, and lovable. The villain is well-developed. I listened to the audiobook, which was very good and narrated by Mozhan Marno.

This story only increased my fascination with Wonder Woman, and I continue to feel very sorry for myself that I can't live on Themyscira.
