Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave life to the character of Princess Diana! Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is but this story made her come alive for me. I found it just magnificent the amount of thought that was put into describing the Amazons and how they came to be. The world building was very detailed and I could clearly imagine the island of Themyscira and the warrior women who inhabited it. […]
