Good morning all today I have a book that I actually was really excited to read .  It is actually part of the DC icons series . CATWOMAN (Soul stealer ) by Sarah J Maas

                             BOOK BLURB 

Sizzling with action and suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author SARAH J. MAAS delivers a coming-of-age Selina Kyle who will steal readers' hearts in a new, highly anticipated YA blockbuster: CATWOMAN!

When 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, Gotham City looks ripe for the taking.

Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove that as Batwing he has what it takes to help people. He targets a new thief on the prowl who has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Together, they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman is clever--she may be Batwing's undoing.

In this third DC Icons book, Selina is playing a desperate game of cat and mouse, forming unexpected friendships and entangling herself with Batwing by night and her devilishly handsome neighbor Luke Fox by day. But with a dangerous threat from the past on her tail, will she be able to pull off the heist that's closest to her heart?

                          MY REVIEW 
  What is a cat to do when the bat is away . Two years after escaping the slums of Gotham our feline , Selina Kyle comes back as the wealthy but mysterious Holly Vanderhees. When she realizes that Batman is not in Gotham she hatches a plan to pick Gotham clean .  With the help of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn they start wreaking havoc in Gotham. Luke Fox aka Batwing wants to prove to the people of Gotham that he has what it takes to help protect the people . When he runs into Cat woman , she just maybe the Batwings undoing . Will they be able to keep love out of the picture and will Cat woman be able to save herself from a threat from the past and keep her heart intact . 

    I have always loved the character of Cat Woman , she has intrigued me and I must say that this character is well written and complex. Selina is so complex she has come through so much and she is tough and well really kind of snarky . She doesn't let anyone or anything put her down .  There is actually a sadness to her also, you know all she wants is love and to be loved . She has been pushed into the life she had all to protect her younger sister and get her the medical help she needed .  You will actually care for Selina when you read her back story and cheer for her through out the book . Now lets talk Luke aka Bat Wing . He is cool and sexy and probably the only super hero that can keep Gotham safe but really we don't get to get to know him. He is basically put in there for a love interest for Selina . He is sexy and sweet and yes you will swoon but I wish we got to get to know him a little more .  Over all I did love these characters and yes I even loved Harley Quin and Poison Ivy as Selina's friends and confidantes . 

     I was so excited when I got this book in a book box I ordered . I have always loved super hero stories but I am truly a villain girl at heart . I love Cat Woman so much , she has always had a place in my heart. The author takes her story and ramps it up ten fold . She takes us on such an emotional roller coaster ride.  I was sucked in by page 10 ,  I cried and laughed all the way through this book .   So if you want a great story that will captivate you and keep you reading check it out . I can't wait to dive into the other books in the series . So if you are a comic fan check out the book you will not be disappointed . Add this book to your summer reading list .
