Damn. This didn’t work for me at all.

The problem I found myself most bothered with was the medium, if you can believe it. I always thought some comic books could benefit from being given a full novel treatment, and wow was I wrong.

I kept waiting to be swept off my feet with the story, and I knew it would take Sarah J. Maas awhile to do that, I was willing to wait. But then half the book was through, two thirds, and still not a thing captured my attention. It was monotone and it was gloomy as the DC movies tend to be (before the last two came out). I caught myself thinking that if this was a movie – it would probably work just fine (I had Ann Hathaway in my head the whole time), the atmosphere, the mood, the whole shebang. As a book though, I was desperate to get out of it.

Anothing thing that bothered me was Batwing and Catwoman having a thing for each other. I always rooted for Batman/Catwoman pairing, so this felt like cheating. Not cool. Granted I am not a big comic book reader, for all I know somewhere in that pile of stories Catwoman and Batwing might have had a thing, but not in my universe.

Over and out
