Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies-mortal and divine-determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer.

"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 "Will absolutely satisfy pre-existing fans of Wonder Woman, but it also readily stands alone for non-superhero fans." -Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW "Wonder Woman is the epitome of a kick-butt heroine, and Bardugo does her justice with aplomb." -The Bulletin "Bardugo breathes zippy new life into the story with a twisty plot, whip-smart characters, and her trademark masterful writing." -Booklist

Leigh Bardugo just became my queen and I'll read anything she writes from now on. I absolutely adore her writing style; she surely knows how to write a gripping story about friendship and with perfect amount of jokes and action.
