Book Review : Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas (DC Icons, #3)

This cat has definitely more life to her. When I picked up the book i didn’t had much expectation since i am not that ardent fan of the comic series and Gotham city. When i say i am not ardent fan, i mean that even though i know the characters, plot and nuisances, i am not so big of a fan, that i would be offended with the tiniest details being right or wrongly portrayed. May be that is why i found the book absolutely to my liking. For me it was not a revisiting of a popular character. For me , Catwoman was a fresh new story of a strong female character.

Catwoman Official Synopsis

When the Bat’s away, the Cat will play. It’s time to see how many lives this cat really has. . . .

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, Batwing is left to hold back the tide of notorious criminals. Gotham City is ripe for the taking.

Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove he has what it takes to help people in his role as Batwing. He targets a new thief on the prowl who seems cleverer than most. She has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and together they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman may be Batwing’s undoing.

Catwoman RWAT Take

Sarah J mass is a master story teller and she proves her skill yet again in this book. I love her simplistic writing and absorbing narrative style. It makes sure that one is able to retain their attention and inquisitiveness for the plot. To be honest, this is different storyline from what was being shown in the Halle Berry movie from 2004 and even the one shown in the Gotham series. So that is why i started my review by saying that i am not an ardent fan to be offended by track deviations

The book moves with a good pace and it was fun to watch all those characters from Gotham City come together to tell this amazing story of girl power and girl gang. The book is interesting because of the narration style and the way the story moves from each events to the next with a smoothness. It has an easy flow and makes for an amazing read. The book do come with a lot of emotional analysis and outpours so you better watch out for that.


You need to approach this book with a new perspective to enjoy it at the best. Pick this book to learn about the character Selena and what happens to her eventually. Otherwise you would end up comparing and checking your knowledge of catwoman against the book plot which would only ruin your experience. So its best to approach it with a fresh eye and you will able to enjoy a fast yet smooth paced book at its best
