Book Review – Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J Maas

catwomanWhen 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.

It did take me a little while to get into the story but I was really enjoying it by the time we got to the reasons why Selina was doing it all (the early bits, not the full thing). Her back story at the beginning is needed but hard to start off with.

I love her courage and determination though, and her love for her sister. And that she’s trying to do the right thing. I also enjoyed her friendship with Ivy, and it really made me want to read more about her – I’ve never been big into DC, and so I didn’t know much about her and now I feel like I’ve missed out. I adored her back story.

I also liked getting to know Luke, and see some of his perspective. Their relationship was sort of off to me though, a little forced plus going from disdain to interest overnight. But overall it was handled well and not too in your face.

Overall, I give Catwoman 3.5 stars, and would definitely recommend it if you enjoy superhero type books. Plus who doesn’t like an anti hero?
