This is a serie of four books, each written by a different author and focusing on four different DC character. First up, we will discover Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman this august.

Next January, Marie Lu will introduce us to her Batman with Batman: Nightwalker, for which we now have a cover and a synopsis.

Here’s the synopsis : “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.

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.

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.”

 Well that’s pretty much it for the reading news this month. Let me know if there’s anything else I might have missed !
