I give it - 5/5
My review - One of the best books I have read. I adore Wonder Woman and was so excited to see that Leigh was writing a book based on her. We all know that Wonder Woman is a strong, fierce woman. She is kick-ass, caring and all around an amazing woman we can all look up to and I really felt that Leigh was able to compel this into her book.
Diana is such an interesting character to read about and oh my did I feel empowered after reading this. It was all about girl power and female friendship. Those are two of my favourite things to read about in a book.
On the island where Diana and her Amazonian sisters live, there is a ship near by when a bomb detonates. On that ship we find Alia. She is a warbringer. Determined to end Alia's destiny they go on an adventure. They travel different places and meet loads of new characters that you instantly just fall in love with.
Each character was important. The theme of female friendship is very important. The action scenes where amazing and brilliant. I am hoping for more because I really enjoyed reading about Diana, Alia and the rest. They are all very interesting characters and I wasn't bored once waiting for something to happen. I felt like I was on this journey with them. I really enjoyed Leigh's take on Wonder Woman and where she went with the story. I can't recommend it enough.
