kareila: hidden between stacks of books (books)

I only picked this up because I love everything else Leigh Bardugo has written, but I wasn't sure how her writing talents would fit with a well-known character in our world. Although the plot is fairly predictable, there are many fun moments that make this a worthwhile read. This Diana is very similar to the one from the recent film, except that instead of following Steve Trevor into World War I, she rescues a teenage girl named Alia and is drawn into our modern times. But her basic mission of preventing massive bloodshed and saving innocent life is unchanged, as is the difficulty of getting her allies to believe that ancient Greek legends are the true root of all their problems.

This appears to be the first of a series of DC YA stories penned by a diverse group of authors. I'll also be interested to see what Marie Lu does with Batman.
