Oh my God, guys this book is so good. It made me laugh, and it was the first book in ages that has actually made me cry a little bit.
As I said in my last review, I’m going to go through the Pros and Cons, then if I would recommend it or not, followed by my Goodreads rating.
When the Bat’s away, the Cat will play. It’s time to see how many lives this cat really has. . .
Two years after escaping Gotham City’s slums, Selina Kyle returns as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees. She quickly discovers that with Batman off on a vital mission, Batwing is left to hold back the tide of notorious criminals. Gotham City is ripe for the taking.
Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove he has what it takes to help people in his role as Batwing. He targets a new thief on the prowl who seems cleverer than most. She has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and together they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman may be Batwing’s undoing. (Goodreads)
Who would have thought that a Catwoman story written by Sarah J. Maas, would be so awesome. I loved this book so much. Sarah really captured the character of Selina Kyle perfectly, Catwoman has always been portrayed as a villain, but in this book I found myself routing for her, even when she was robbing people. I think Sarah’s writing give her character many layers, so you didn’t see her as evil, but as a young woman trying her best with the life she has.
I adored the relationship between Selina and her younger sister, she would do anything for her, and she looked after her. It hit me because me and my sister are best friends, and if I was in their situation, I would act the same way.
I really liked the bits about Selina’s training, when the character who trains her showed up, I mentally fist pumped. I was like “Oh Shit.”
Now my favourite character in this, happened to be Poison Ivy. I honestly wish that she had her own book, she is fabulous. Ivy had a real soft side to her, she also really just wanted to make a difference to the world. I also liked that Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn have a relationship, in this book Harley has broken up with the Joker who is in Arkham.
Luke Fox was an interesting character, he suffered from mental health issues from being in a war, it was interesting seeing how he reacts in some of situations he got into. I like the relationship he ended up having with Selina even thou I thought it was a bit fast.
The only problem I sort of had with this book, was because it was told in two perspectives, I preferred Catwomans over Batwings. Thats not to say his parts were bad, they weren’t, I just like Selina’s point of view more.
Also Harley was a little annoying, but I just think thats her character, she just likes blowing stuff up.
Recommend or Not
I would highly recommend this book, its so much fun and so interesting, I love seeing the different authors point of views of the characters in the DC universe. The next one out is going to be Superman, I cannot wait.
