Catwoman will steal your heart
Selina Kyle is a teen who desperately wants to protect her sister. To do this, she has to part from her sister and accept an offer from Talia Al Ghul to become a member of the League of Assassins, where she is honed into a weapon.
After years of training at the League, Selina returns to Gotham as a thief, posing as rich socialite, Holly Vanderhees.
Batwing is running the show while Batman is away, making sure Gotham’s thugs remain behind bars. To his surprise a new thief has made their way into the midst of the rich and famous, and he sets out to find out who this new reprobate is.
Catwoman ends up making friends with the likes of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, while she sets out to thieve and plan a heist.
Selena’s character is taken through many ups and downs, and the reader is led into the beginnings of her self-discovery years, and the reasons that caused her to choose the path of a sly villain. The characters of Batwing, Quinn and Ivy are also interesting as their storylines develop alongside Selena’s.
The story will definitely lead you into a deeper and more complex background of Selena’s past, and it will give the reader a better understanding why she is who she has become.
You can’t just say that she’s a badass girl without a moral compass, because some of her intentions are for the good, even if it is misguided. She does, however, portray courage and fierce strength as a woman, which is certainly admirable.
There is also the strong connection between Catwoman and Batwing, and her mysterious neighbor Luke Fox, which is undeniable, and finishes off a well-rounded storyline. You have action, a strong female character, tension and romance.
Catwoman: Soulstealer is one of my least favourite books of Sarah J. Maas, however, that does not mean it’s a bad book. When it comes to Maas, her book writing standard is extremely high. In actual fact, this book is a delicious read.
