Title: Batman: Nightwalker
Author: Marie Lu
Publisher: Random House
Publication Date: January 2, 2018
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.
The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
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.
Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.
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.
Why am I excited?
DUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH BATMAN! When I first heard that popular DC superheroes were getting YA adaptions I squealed a little inside because the concept sounded epic. Now that it’s all actually happening I’m dying to collect them all. I have yet to read Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, but I started readding some of her other books and they are SUPERB. I’m sure Marie Lu’s take on Batman will be super exciting to read. Plus, the COVER. It’s so epic and I love to just stare at it. Teenage Bruce Wayne is probably going to be super angsty and all broody and I’m going to love every minute of it. I still have to catch up on Gotham (the TV show) for crying out loud! What is wrong with me?
