Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"Wonder Woman is the epitome of a kick-butt heroine, and Bardugo does her justice with aplomb. The Bulletin
Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer not only synthesizes a coherent origin and mission statement for Diana, but also makes the Amazon princess feel so fresh that she could have been created yesterday. . . . One of the best Wonder Woman stories ever. Tor.com
"Warbringer is straight-up dazzling, every sentence waking up your senses with a 'Yeah, that's right, this is BRAND-NEW, SUCKAS!' punch. LIBBA BRAY, New York Times bestselling author of The Diviners
Bardugo breathes zippy new life into the story with a twisty plot, whip-smart characters, and her trademark masterful writing. Booklist
A hero's journey times two. Alia taps into her own bravery and Diana learns about sexism, racism and something the Amazons have always dismissed: the courage, resilience and ingenuity of mere mortals. The New York Times Book Review
Cinematic battles and a race against time keep the excitement high, but the focus on girls looking out for each other is what makes this tie-in shine. Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
All readers will definitely be delighted by Bardugo’s cinematic delivery and long for more stories about this epic, ass-kicking heroine. VOYA, STARRED REVIEW
