Waiting on Wednesday - Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Summary (by Goodreads)

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

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 mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. 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.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

OMG. Did you see Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman??  And now DC has LEIGH BARDUGO writing her story??!!  WOWOWOW!! I am so excited about this. When I was little (ages ago), I used to sit in my Wonder Woman costume (my mother was an excellent seamstress) and watch Wonder Woman every week in front of the the TV.  (Yep. That's a long time ago. Linda Carter was her real name).  I can't wait for this to come out and with such as stellar author to pen it!!
