Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

Catwoman: Soulstealer (DC Icons, #3)4 stars

I like Sarah J. Maas. I was so excited to see that she was writing one of the DC icon books. She didn’t blow me away but I enjoyed the book. Wonder Woman is still my favorite one though! This one was much better than Batman, I did not care for that one.

My absolute favorite part of this book is Selina. She’s tough, witty, complex and will do anything for the people she loves. I loved how she was in such a grey area. Was she a hero or villain? Both? I feel like I kept trying to answer this question throughout this book.

I also loved the addition of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. I’m a huge fan of Harley Quinn. The relationship between Harley and Ivy was a surprise and I never really know where they stood. I don’t think they really know either. I liked to see a different side of them though.

All three of the girls together was a treat. I really liked the dynamic and the witty banter they all had. There was a lot of action and a lot of fighting. I like how they formed a squad but then became friends.

It was fast paced and full of action. I loved the last 1/3 of the book. Things really picked up and you could see all Selina’s ground work come together. The writing isn’t perfect but I did enjoy myself.

Now.. some thing that I didn’t like…

I kind of felt like Batwing (Luke) was in this book just to serve as a love interest. Otherwise, he was a terrible “hero.” He never caught any of them and just was kind of all over the place. I thought it was weird to bring in the Batman convos too. I did like that she tried to talk about PTSD but I don’t think she pulled it off. There could have been so much more there.

Also, I think this book was a bit too political at times. I see so much all over social media, the news and people in my daily life. I don’t really care to read about it too. It just felt like she was trying a bit hard to make some political moves/points in this book.

Overall, I did enjoy the story but I still think that Wonder Woman is the best of the series, so far!

    • Thank you!!
      Yes! Every time he was like, “I got it under control.” I rolled my eyes! He ever had it under control. Chaos happens and he still didn’t do anything, Selina did. 😂
      Yeah, I agree. I don’t know if my expectations were too high but it has been underwhelming.

  3. I’m glad that even though this book wasn’t amazing, you still enjoyed it 🙂 I haven’t read any of Maas’ books, but from what I can tell this is a pretty big depart for the stuff she usually writes. I am super interested now in reading this so I can see if I agree with your thoughts or not! Anyways, thanks for the lovely review 🙂
