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

I love almost anything Marie Lu writes, but this one didn’t feel quite like her style. I liked the story and even though I am not a huge DC person, I think it did a good job of setting up a story that everyone knows. I liked the way that despite knowing about Bruce Wayne’s parents and most of his story, elements still came as a surprise and Marie Lu took it down a path that was not entirely predictable. Something that I always love about the characters that Marie Lu writes is their depth and their relationships to other characters, but in this book Bruce Wayne felt like the only three dimensional character. He had friends and even an enemy (of a sort) but it felt that I never really got to know them. When I finished the book, it felt as if Bruce was alone in this version of Gotham City. Overall it was a slow read, up until the very end I had a hard time picking it up, Bruce was a good character, but there didn’t seem to be any drive to him, which leads to no drive in the plot.
