“Cat-woman was a good way to describe her. The ears on the dark helmet, the oversized lenses, the claws that she’d just retracted after that spectacular jump… Even her steps toward him oozed feline grace.”
🌟 I want to start with the cover, I personally like it and it almost matches the other covers so that is good.
🌟 To give you a quick idea about this book in this series, then Wonderwoman was my favorite, this is second and Batman is the least favorite one. I believe Superman will be good and I hope so. Speaking of those authors, they are all big names in the industry and they all were below their average in this series.
🌟 The characters: Now this may be the most controversial thing here. Selina was cool and I like that Catwoman was kind of a morally gray character. She was not all good or all devil which reminds me of both the side characters Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn which were both shown in a new light and I understood their backstories and sympathized with them. SJM kept them as LGBT characters, for those who hate Sarah for not including this type of characters, well she finally did. And notice that I said she kept them and not made them because she was following the comics. She didn’t add LGBT characters for the sake of selling books or being relevant which many authors do and are praised for.
🌟 But there was also mention of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) which was good, I saw some cases as someone in the medical field and it was good enough for this book. But there were futuristic features in the book and many scientific advancements but no cure for CF. Probably this book was written before 2018 were a new drug was approved by the FDA and it treats the underlying cause, not only the symptoms. It is for only 4% of the patients now but she kept writing that it was incurable an that is not 100% accurate.
🌟 So as you can see -I salute you if you have read the whole thing- this is not a perfect book but it is also not the worst. I liked many parts of the stories and that Sarah is trying to improve her writing. All in all I gave this 3.25 stars.
