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.

  1. My personal Wonder Woman is definitely my mom. She had me when she was barely 16 and my brother when she was almost 35... 4 decades of raising two kids either alone or with either of our abusive fathers. And even in some pretty bad conditions she always came through as a mom and managed to hide a lot of the bad that surrounded us. She doesn't think she's strong, but she is. And she's finally in a good place with a NICE husband.
    Would love to win Leigh's book; thanks for the chance! :)

  2. "Who is your own personal Wonder Woman?" Mom's okay.

  3. My personal wonder woman is my friend Maggie who has gone through a painful divorce, had to raise her kids by herself, has to work long hours everyday to support herself even though most women her age enjoying retirement, and has chronic back pain, but still exercises despite the pain.

  4. My own personal Wonder Woman? I don't think that I have one in my life, which is kind of sad. There are women that I admire, though. Women who persevere and make me think, "Wow, I wish I were as strong as her" or "I wish I had her tenacity." Women who I know have been through the wringer but keep on keeping on. They're my favorite and true inspirations. :)

  5. I'll just say my mom cause she is the first woman that came to my mind when I read the question.

  7. My grandmothers. They grew up in a a very small town (although Sarah Jessica Parker is from there too) and had hard lives. It is sad to see them both in their mid 90s reduced to only being able to sit but I still remember how they were when I was younger. My Nan had her own beauty shop called the Cut & Curl and my Grandma had a small farm.

  8. My wife is my wonder woman, do not know how she does all she does. She is my Beautiful and makes my world Wonderful.
