Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (Shortest review ever!)

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 

One of the shortest reviews to what I thought would be a long review of one of my favorite comic book characters.

Wonder Woman and the Hulk were my favorite characters of all time when I was growing up. I watched and own the shows. I just love them still. Superman followed shortly after and then several more as I got older. Soooooo, I was really disappointed that this book didn't blow me away. I thought it would have all of the stars. I love old school Diana.

All the stars goes to Wonder Woman and I liked Alia well enough but it just didn't hit me the right way. I didn't care for anyone else in the book. Don't get me wrong, I love Leigh Bardugo and her Six of Crows duology but I just didn't love this one.

I don't understand why books have to be changed around to some weird different stuff and I don't even know how to explain what I mean. Lol

I'm glad so many loved it to death because this is the way of the new world. I'm hoping that someone will write a more adult Wonder Woman book down the road and have it more to the real story line then bending to the world all young adult books are taking. I'm glad that Diana wasn't seen as stupid at least. It wasn't great, it wasn't bad, it was okay.
