Catwoman: Soulstealer, by Sarah J. Maas
This one is out TODAY, the latest in the blockbuster DC Icons series. On the one hand… CATWOMAN! On the other… Batwing? As our resident DC fan, Erin would rather see her pitted against the Bat himself, but being of two minds is purrfectly appropriate for this iconic super-villain we love to love.
By coincidence, Erin was a special effects technician out in L. A. for about a minute and a half, making rockets and rocket harnesses for the penguins in Batman Returns, with Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, who totally rocked the part. Erin never got to meet Michelle Pfeiffer, but she loved walking around the movie sets, knowing she had even the tiniest role to play in one of her all-time favorite superhero canons.
From the publisher:
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?
“Maas has a gift for crafting fierce female protagonists. . . . An epic shoutout to all the bad girls who know how to have fun.”
