Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.
The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
One by one, the city's elites are being executed as their mansions' security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family's fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he's forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city's most brutal criminals.
Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce's only hope.
In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.
I seriously never ever thought I’d be at all interested in reading a Batman book. Ever. But after finishing the Wonder Woman book by Leigh Bardugo and Warcross by Marie Lu, I actually started to get excited about this one! I hope it’ll be interesting. If the synopsis is any sort of indication, it seems like it will be unputdownable! I love books that have some mystery and danger and I really hope it’s all done well and keeps us on the edge of my seat! Either way, the publishers and authors have done a great job getting me interested in a subject I really never thought I’d be interested in. Great job to everyone and let’s hope the hype for this one is just as deserved as the hype for WW!
What are you waiting on this week?
