Why Grisha Fans Will Obsess Over Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo!

We’re obsessed with the Grishaverse! From Shadow and Bone to Six of Crows to the upcoming Language of Thorns, Leigh Bardugo’s fantasy novels offer everything a reader could want.

So when we found out she was joining the DC Icons team of powerhouse authors (with Marie Lu, Sarah J. Maas, and Matt de la Peña), we knew that Wonder Woman: Warbringer would be just as incredible. Here are some reasons we think this book will win the hearts of Grisha fans everywhere!

1. All the Girl Power

Wonder Woman: Warbringer is a tribute to strong women, from superheroines to mortals who aren’t six feet tall and bulletproof. Every woman in this book is smart, determined, and ready to fight for what she believes in.

2. Out-of-This-World World-Building

The book honors Wonder Woman’s Themysciran roots while telling a brand-new story about a line of powerful women that stretches back to ancient times. Full of magic and Greek mythology, it’s a blend that will more than satisfy die-hard Leigh Bardugo fans.

3. Hidden Powers

Do you dream of finding your secret superpower? Just as Alina discovered some new talents in the Shadow and Bone trilogy, there are characters in Wonder Woman: Warbringer who find out they have some show-stopping abilities, too.

4. A Swoon-Worthy Cover

The right cover = everything. While the Grisha covers convey the beauty and danger of the Grishaverse, the cover of Wonder Woman: Warbringer captures all Diana’s power and strength. They are both so pretty you could just kiss them!

5. Diverse, Relatable Characters

We love that Warbringer isn’t a one-woman show. Diana is part of a diverse group that brings different backgrounds, perspectives, and strengths to the important job of saving the world. Dregs fans know a thing or two about that.

6. A Twisty Plot

Our lips are zipped on the specifics, but let’s just say that if you were on the edge of your seat reading the Grishaverse books, buckle up that seat belt before you open Wonder Woman: Warbringer.

7. Unexpected Humor

We can’t get enough of characters whose motto in a crisis is “keep calm and banter on.” If you laughed at the hilarious exchanges between Sturmhond and Alina or Kaz and his crew, you’ll fall hard for the wisecracking gang in this book.

8. Tried-and-True Friendship

We love reading about friends with an ironclad I’ll-be-there-for-you policy. Wonder Woman: Warbringer features a found family that knows how to stick together when things get rough.
