The latest DC Icons title to be released is Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas. And it’s a terrific nonstop ride from start to finish.
When Selina Kyle is first introduced, she’s a 17-year-old petty thief and enforcer (“Leopard”) for the Mob in Gotham City. But after getting an offer involving the health of her critically ill young sister Maggie, Selina allows herself to be trained by the infamous League of Assassins. Three years later she returns to Gotham in the guise of a wealthy heiress with a mysterious plan to bring down the city. Can Batman’s protege, Luke Fox A.K.A. Batwing, stop her? It’s already no comfort that Luke and Selina are already next door neighbors (neither knowing the other’s real identity), or that Selina makes the acquaintance of two well known female criminals, or that one of Batman’s deadliest arch foes is watching from the sidelines. Catwoman: Soulstealer is an exhilarating and action-packed novel that doesn’t slow down. There’s action, suspense, humor, and romance all mixed in. Even the small character bits, like Selina and Luke’s first date, have an undercurrent of high energy. And the book has one of the most exciting climaxes of any recent YA novel!
Catwoman: Soulstealer is very highly recommended.
