Waiting on Wednesday: Batman: Nightwalker



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming books we're excited about. Formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine until her site went quiet. The meme is still followed today by dedicated bloggers who have a need to share their anticipation of upcoming reads.



There's no doubt that in many countries Halloween fever is in the air. Jamaica doesn't celebrate Halloween as heavily as others but there are festivities around the exact date or week of. I personally think it's great and hope to one day don a costume and go do some real fun. Until then let's look at a book with a character whose future will make every day seem like Halloween.


Title: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu (DC Icons #2)

Release Date: January 2, 2018

Pre-Order: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Summary on GoodreadsBefore 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.

So what do you think? Personally, I'm excited to see what YA authors do with these updated stories about popular DC heroes and villains. Catwoman's supposed to be Icon #3. Of course, my favourite hero is Batman so I'm here for Batman: Nightwalker. Wow me, Marie Lu. Thanks for stopping by and is there an upcoming book that you're excited about?

  2. My publisher did Bardugo's Wonder Woman this summer and I was supposed to translate this one, but I'm no longer working for them so I won't be working on this one nor on Warcross :) I'm working on Laini Taylor over at another publisher right now.

  3. This looks and sounds great. I knew about the Wonder Woman story but not this one. Nice!

  4. Australia doesn't do a big Halloween thing either, but kids are often out trick-or-treating. And as a teen (almost an adult really ;) ) my friends and I went out trick-or-treating. The cheek of it! :P
