Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas
Updated: Mar 20, 2019
This series keeps getting cooler and cooler. Being a huge superheroes fan, I fell for each book in the #DCIcons series; Maas' being the top of that list of course.
“Selina Kyle blew out a long breath as she lifted her chin and stepped into the sound and the light and the wrath. Let the bloodying begin.”
The third installment in the #DCIcons series is an amazing spin-off for Catwoman’s story by the one and only queen of bad-ass things Sarah J. Maas. There is a reason for why Maas’s books are swathed with hype and love, she can damn write a story. And trust me, whatever this woman writes it’s going to be good.
I’d like to Thank Penguin Random House International for my free copy.
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.
Catwoman: Soulstealer, Sarah J. Maas, Penguin Random House, August 7th 2018, Paperback, ISBN: 9780141386898, Rating: ★★★★★, 361 pages.
From the very first line you can tell it’s Maas writing the story. You’re immediately engulfed in it, wrapped into the story and swept off your feet to a new world. Yes it takes place in the urban time, the city of Gotham we all grew up learning about from all the Batman and the Joker fights but this time we learn about Catwoman , what made her who she is and why she became the vigilante taking from the rich and giving the poor?
I loved every bit of the story, the scenarios, the pace and the plot. Simple, easy to read with no big complications and as usual our main character. Selina is a total badass. I find that there’s not a lot to say about this book, but it’s definitely one to get you back in the mood for reading. Perfect choice if you’re in a slump and what a really gripping story to pull you back in the game. And as usual, Maas never disappoint.
