When the teenage Diana (she is never called Wonder Woman) rescues a young girl from a floundering boat she breaks one of the cardinal rules of Themyscira: no humans allowed on the island or face permanent exile. But there is something about the girl, Alia, that prevents Diana from letting her die before she is discovered. Then, events on the island lead Diana to consult the Oracle and what it tells her about Alia forces Diana to leave Themyscira and face the human world.
But, the girls don't end up where they had originally planned; they end up in New York, Alia's hometown. This is where the book gets really interesting, and fun. Just because the Amazons are an isolated people does not mean they do not know about the world beyond their island. They study it in school and even though there is no Internet or cars or planes on Themyscira, Diana at least knows what they are. Her knowledge, though, is book-based and in New York she gets to feel, smell, taste and experience the modern world. She rides an elevator, swims in the Hudson, buys junk food, parachutes, sleeps in a roach motel and meets Alia's amusing friends and her uptight brother, Jason.
Warbringer is well written and full of twists and excitement and never takes itself seriously. As she is a die-hard and lifelong WW fan, it definitely comes out and it is apparent that Bardugo had fun writing this. There are some pretty fanciful scenes that stretch the reader's ability to suspend disbelief, but, you know, the novel is inspired by a comic book character and written by a woman who created the Grishaverse, it's going to be fantastical.
This is the sixth Leigh Bardugo's YA fantasy novel that I have read and I feel this book is more young young adult than either The Grisha Trilogy or Crooked Kingdom series. Crooked Kingdom was gritty and dark with characters with dubious intentions and some of Bardugo's best dialogue. The Grisha Trilogy was loaded with fantasy and magic and sexy evil creatures. Warbringer is just plain fun. The characters are young and they read young. I read the entire Crooked Kingdom series imagining Kaz was in his twenties. Diana and Alia and her friends are teenagers and they act like it.
It's a great book and perfect for any Wonder Woman fan over the age of ten (no swearing, no sex, some bisexual innuendo but definitely tamer that what you find on the TV). I loved it.
