"Diana, Princess of the Amazons, journeys to the World of Man in this coming-of-age young adult story"--
Diana, Princess of the Amazons, longs to prove herself to her warrior sisters. When the opportunity comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law to save a mere mortal. Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued 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. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, Diana and Alia will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

Blind Date with a Book 2020 comment by borrower: "It was a one-night stand - didn't stop reading until it was done! Not familiar with all the mythological creatures named."

I liked this book. the ending was unexpected and the details were awesome. the book was really interesting and intriguing, and it kind of ended on a cliff-hanger, so I would like to find out what happens next.

Compared to the other books in this series it wasn't as interesting. It didn't get me hooked right away and there was a lot of details in the beginning. Hopefully, as I get more into the book it will become more interesting.

Plot. For devoted fans and newcomers to the DC Universe, this novel's plot is driven by its female characters.

This story will keep you on your toes. A strong female character packed full of action, adventure and suspense! You will enjoy the modern take on a classic story.

This book had everything! Action, adventure, romance, heroes, goddesses, friendship, and a fancy dress party. I was very surprised and impressed with how it all came together.

The best thing about this book was the cast of developed, deep characters. I loved their backstories, strengths, struggles, and flaws—everything about them was so real to me. However, I typically do not like it when authors make characters homosexual (it presses political views which I do not share), and this was no exception. Nim could have been my favourite character. Could have. Would have, if Bardugo hadn't made her lesbian. Alas, I'll have to live with it. Most books aren't perfect.
Speaking of imperfections, there was a point in the plot somewhere around the middle that made me roll my eyes with its predictability, but once I got through it I was fine. The twist at the end was unexpected, and I really wish there was a sequel.
Overall, this book was pretty good. There were some elements I didn't like, but as I said before—it's hard to find a perfect book. And sometimes I feel like I ask too much of literature and end up disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a new twist on the classic character and it was well done!

Finally got around to reading this book, and if you can get the audiobook, it will be even better! Fans of Wonder Woman, if you loved the movie then you will love this backstory. If you have not seen the movie read this anyways. Great elements in the story that shows the growth of Diana as she goes through her journey to prove herself to her sisters. Worth a read! Check it out now!

The book Wonder Woman Warbringer is about Wonder Woman aka Diana, who has superior abilities than a normal human. Diana sees a plane crash on her island and saves a girl names Alia who she finds out is a warbringer. She goes to the oracle for guidance and finds out that if she takes Alia to the spring and cleanses her that she will be stripped of her power to bring war and no one else will bare it either, but she must go through many obstacles, like people wanting to kill Alia because of her power and even the gods are trying to stop her, well the bad ones anyways. Will she make it or will war havoc among the humans?
I really enjoyed this book, it was very interesting and even though it was a serious plot there was a lot of humor in it, like my favorite part of Diana being clueless and when Alia shouts “shotgun” Diana throws her to the ground to protect her because she doesn't know that “shotgun” is a figure of speech. I haven’t read other books by this author but I would want to because she did an amazing job with this book.
I think anyone would enjoy this book but mostly young adults I believe because of the humor and the fact that the characters are all young adults also so the reader can relate to them. If you like superhero books, you would enjoy this because Wonder Woman is a superhero. So I HIGHLY recommend this book it's such a good read.
