Daughter of immortals.

Princess Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mortal. Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.

Daughter of death.

Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted by people who think her very existence could spark a world war. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength 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.


Two girls will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. Tested beyond the bounds of their abilities, Diana and Alia must find a way to unleash hidden strengths and forge an unlikely alliance. Because if they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

So firstly, I have to confess something. I have seen parts of the Wonder Woman movie to know enough but I have barely seen a Marvel/ DC movie. I have watched a few of them but I am no where caught up.

I don’t know what it was about this book but I just couldn’t get into it. Even though I didn’t watch the full movie, reading this book just made me feel like I was back watching that movie with a lot of things changed.

I think that is what annoyed me, it was too much like the film. I got the feeling that the Author was trying to pull as far away from the movie but failed miserably.

The character changes between the movie and this book we’re noticeable and I was quite impressed with that.

Leigh, wrote about strong feminine characters more then anything else and that was good. This book was mainly and I say mainly because not all of them we’re female; was an all round female book characters and not a lot of authors do that.

Overall, it was an okay book but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped I would and I am not sure if I will carry on with the series.
