Waiting on Wednesday: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Batman: Nightwalker
(DC Icons #2)
Publication Date: January 2, 2018
Hardcover, 272 pages, Random House Books
Genres: YA, Sci-Fi, Superhero

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.

My Thoughts

Leigh Bardugo’s YA Wonder Woman book just released, and I haven’t read it yet. *sigh* I’ll get to it. I just need more money in the bank before I go on a book spending spree. (I say after I buy books for an author signing. Oh, the irony.)

Anywho, I’m not sure how I feel about this Batman book. I really enjoyed Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy, so I’m not worried about her writing style. I’m actually more worried about how short it is. It’s less than 300 pages! That doesn’t seem like enough to me.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. Yaass!! I sooo cannot wait to read this one! I always liked Batman growing up! I grew up on the Michael Keaton movies, plus the original(?) animated series where Bruce's chin was very square like! Lol! Excited for this one and Catwoman because again, LOOOOVED Michelle Pfeiffer;s role of Catwoman! So definitely can't wait to see how Sarah tackles that one too! Great pick!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Ah, yes. The square chin. Ha ha. Have you read the Wonder Woman book yet?

  2. I haven't seen this one yet. How have I not seen it?!? I am on the wait list on the library for Wonder Woman so I will see how that goes before deciding on this one. Great pick!

    1. This one hasn't been getting as much attention as WW. I guess it'll blow up more now that WW is released...?

  3. I'm also so excited about this one!! Can't wait for it to be released :D Great pick!


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
