Waiting on Wednesday- Wonder Woman: Warbringer

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. (goodreads summery)

Why I Am Waiting

I am waiting because of two hardcore awesome women. Leigh Bardugo and  Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman. I’ve never been much into DC heroes, I’m a Marvel girl and Black Widow has my heart. But after seeing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman this summer I just want, no NEED, more Wonder Woman! I pre ordered this book before I even left the theater I kid you not. I can not wait, AND it’s being written by LEIGH BARDUGO herself, aka the genius behind Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom! Thats a good enough reason alone to be waiting. Warbring is also the first in the DC Icons series with sequels being written by more of my favorite authors like Marie Lu and Sarah J. Maas! Bring it on!
