Synopsis

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, 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.

Review

I loved this book, not only does it talk about Catwoman, it’s written by Sarah J Maas but if you follow the Arrow series a little bit, we find Talia and Nissah Al’ghul. We also find Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. What more could you ask for?

We discover the youth of Catwoman and especially how she became this interesting young woman. She doesn’t have a bad heart, what she’s doing is to save her sister. She will have to deal with Batwing, Batman’s friend, who will try to stop her, but she is smart enough not to get caught and make him understand that a greater danger is coming to Gotham.

I loved Catwoman, she is a force of nature, even during her teenage years she had an impressive strength of character. She is a character that I found very interesting from every point of view, she is intelligent, charming and efficient.

I loved Luke too, he’s adorable, he tries to get Catwoman arrested but she’s always stronger than him, yet she doesn’t hurt him. The only small flaw I find in him is his reaction time, he takes far too long to make the connection between Holly and Catwoman.

I loved Poison ivy and Harley Quinn, they both have a very interesting relationship and even if Harley is a little crazy and doesn’t despair of getting The Joker out of Arkham, she’s a very complex character. She deserves to have a book telling her story, but I don’t know who could write her story.

Sarah J Maas managed to convince me with this story about the villains of Gotham and I look forward to Matt de la Pena’s Superman. I would like the series not to stop at four characters because so many others deserve their story, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Nyssah Al’Ghul too.

Quick word: A story I loved and that you can’t miss.

Chronique

J’ai adoré ce livre, non seulement il parle de Catwoman, il est écrit par Sarah J Maas mais en plus si vous suivez un peu la série Arrow, on retrouve Talia et Nissah Al’ghul. On retrouve aussi Poison Ivy et Harley Quinn. Que demander de plus ?

On découvre la jeunesse de catwoman et surtout comment elle est devenue cette jeune femme intéressante. Elle n’a pas un mauvais fond, ce qu’elle fait c’est pour sauver sa sœur. Elle aura à faire à Batwing, l’ami de batman, qui essaiera de l’arrêter mais elle est assez intelligente pour ne pas se faire prendre et lui faire comprendre qu’un danger plus important arrive à Gotham.

J’ai adoré Catwoman, elle est une force de la nature, même durant son adolescence elle avait une force de caractère impressionnante. C’est un personnage que j’ai trouvé très intéressante à tout point de vue, elle est intelligente, charmante et efficace.

J’ai aimé Luke aussi, il est adorable, il essaie de faire arrêter Catwoman mais elle toujours plus forte que lui, pourtant elle ne lui fait aucun mal. Le seul petit défaut que je lui trouve est son temps de réaction, il met beaucoup trop de temps à faire le lien entre Holly et Catwoman.

J’ai adoré Poison ivy et Harley Quinn, elles ont une relation très interessante toutes les deux et même si Harley est un peu folle et ne désespère pas de faire sortir Le Joker d’Arkham, c’est un personnage très complexe. Elle mériterait d’avoir un livre racontant son histoire mais je ne sais pas qui pourrait écrire son histoire.

Sarah J Maas a réussi à me convaincre avec cette histoire rassemblant les vilaines de Gotham et j’attends le Superman de Matt de la Pena avec impatience. J’aimerais que la série ne s’arrête pas à quatres personnages car tellement d’autres méritent leur histoire, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Nyssah Al’Ghul aussi.

En bref : Une histoire que j’ai adoré et que vous ne pouvez pas rater.
