Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah Maas

Sarah J. Maas writes young adult fantasy.

She got asked to write one book in a series called DC Icons.

This book kept me going. But it’s more of a cartoon than a novel. Action. Action. Action. No real plot.

Catwoman (Selina Kyle) debuted as “the Cat” in Batman #1 (spring 1940), she is one of the Dark Knight’s most enduring enemies.

She’s is a Gotham City burglar who typically wears a tight, one-piece outfit and uses a bullwhip for a weapon.

Eartha Kitt played the role in the 1960s Batman TV series.

Though mostly an antihero, Selina and Bruce Wayne are frequently depicted as having a romantic relationship. In one version, they eventually marry.

This book is Catwoman’s origin story

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, the city looks ripe for the taking.

She teams up with Harley Quinn — the Joker’s former girlfriend — and Poison Ivy, her new girlfriend.

As Batman is out of town, their nemesis is Batwing (Luke Fox).
