Are you ready for the adventures of Batman as a young boy? No, we’re not talking about that show on FOX. This is Batman: Nightwalker, a new YA book by Marie Lu.
If you’ve read Warcross or the Young Elites series, you’re familiar with Lu’s work, and now the New York Times bestselling author has set her sights on Gotham City and an almost-18-year-old boy named Bruce Wayne.
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.
The city’s elites are being taken out one by one as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is about to become eighteen and inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Industries and all the tech gadgetry that he loves. But on the way home from his birthday party, he makes an impulsive choice and is sentenced to community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most nefarious criminals.
Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope. The most intriguing inmate in Arkham is Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. A girl who will only speak to Bruce. She is the mystery he must unravel, but is he convincing her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees?
Batman: Nightwalker is the second book in the new DC Icons series, following in the Amazon footsteps of Wonder Woman: Warbringer.
Just like with that book, the first printing of this one includes a limited-edition poster that can be joined with the others to create a full image.
