The highly anticipated coming-of-age story for the world's greatest super hero- Wonder Woman by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo.
She will become a legend but first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning . . .
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 have 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. Diana 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.

Review by Tanaya Lowden
Kicking off the first of the DC Icons series, Wonder Woman Warbringer is a fast-paced and action-packed novel from one of the biggest names in YA.
Leigh Bardugo is one of my favourite authors, and I love how easy it is to get captivated by her writing. Her words flow across the page, and she is incredibly talented at writing interesting, strong and fun characters. This was no different in Wonder Woman Warbringer, which featured a diverse cast of characters that I loved.
My favourite thing about this book was the friendships, and how Diana (Wonder Woman) wasn’t the only character that mattered. The theme of female empowerment shone through, with strong female friendships and girls sticking up for one another taking prominence. I also enjoyed that the romance was not the major focus, allowing the strong theme of friendship to shine brightly.
With the incredible success and popularity of the Wonder Woman film earlier this year, this is the perfect book for fans of the movie. This is not the same story as the film, nor is it a continuation, so you won’t be confused if you haven’t seen it. This is a must read for superhero fans, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the books in the DC Icons series pan out!
