    Yes, I am complete Batman trash. I'd go as far as to say that Bats is probably the most interesting character ever - and the only male Superhero I like. Make of that what you will.

    I must share this.

    Yes!!! I loved it!

    This is about Bruce who is about to turn 18. He's going to be rich. He has his team that are building things. He takes martial arts. He has Alfred. He has friends. And he's starting to have a purpose in life.

    When Bruce helps out the police stopping one of the villains in the Nightwalkers gang, well he has to do community service for helping by crashing his car and what not. A simple thank you would suffice!

    He ends up cleaning floors at Arkham Asylum. This is where he meets Madeline who is actually with the Nightwalkers prior to Bruce's fiasco. But things are not all they seen with Madeline. They have a sort of friendship.

    Bruce is still trying to find out information about the Nightwalkers.

    I would actually like to see a second book but I don't think they are doing one.

    Anyway, Happy Reading!

    A teenage Bruce Wayne must deal with:

    A) the family fortune

    B) his blooming company

    C) friendships falling out

    D) the cell of Nightwalkers terrorizing the city

    Due to a little tousle with the law (due to his hero tendencies), Bruce is forced to

    time in Arkham Asylum - part mental hospital, part insane jailhouse -

    Who may (or may not) be the ring leader of the Nightwalkers.

    Bruce always thought he was pretty good at reading people but this girl is

    And as he circles closer to her web, he can't help but wonder,

    Wow. Seriously, wow.

    Marie Lu, you absolutely

    with this one.

    I did not think I would ever enjoy a retelling of Batman so much.

    She absolutely humanized such a

    man for me.

    I went in there expecting a

    complex but she did such an excellent job with his story. Truly.

    The only thing that bugged me was that not once does he refer to himself as Batman.

    You'd think

    (titled Batman: Nightwalker) that there'd be

    sort of mention of....ya'know, Batman?

    That and (like most renditions), we never get a concrete answer why Bruce would rather invest in violence and weapons....rather than after-school care, adult education classes, local kids clubs...things that bring together communities and helps prevent further violence.

    But who knows, maybe getting new tires for the batmobile is more important....

    Kidding aside, I did really enjoy this story -

    It is reasonably well-written, as we would expect from Marie Lu, but I would point new readers towards her

    or

    before urging them to read this one. This new stream of superhero fiction - and we can expect more in 2018 - caters to current market trends, but it's difficult to write a new story in these almost exhausted universes. In my opinion, Bardugo managed it with

    . Lu not so much.

    Here, Bruce Wayne is a teenager who finds himself caught up in a criminal case that the police can't solve. When his interference in a crime lands him doing community service in Arkham Asylum, he gets up close and personal with some of Gotham's worst criminals. In particular, Madeleine, who is somehow linked to a gang who call themselves Nightwalkers - and are currently picking off Gotham's most powerful and wealthy citizens one by one.

    Maybe this book will work for readers completely unfamiliar with Bruce Wayne and the

    story - though it contains just enough nods to the canon to make me wonder if it will - but for anyone who's seen a few movies or read a few comics,

    .

    It's a short book and there are a number of pacing issues. Lu lingers on Bruce's dream sequences and spends too little time building suspense before the action scenes, which are also over too quickly.

    Teen Bruce, himself, is too bland, uninteresting, and lacking in common sense. It is a shame that the reader can spot when this teen mastermind is being fooled long before he can. He solves and saves very little,

    .

    Normally, Bruce Wayne's blandness can be forgiven because it is balanced out by an outrageous and exciting villain, but the Nightwalkers and Madeleine lacked the necessary charisma or delicious villainy to counter a forgettable protagonist. They're not bad but, let's face it, they're not the Joker, or Two-Face, or Catwoman.

    This definitely all sounds more negative than positive, but I stand by my decision to give it three stars. It is a super quick, easy read, with just another Alfred to save it from being too dull. Plus, to give credit where it's due, I did not have the teeniest tiniest clue about that twist. Nicely played.

    Batman, as we all know, is

    Practically every incarnation of the Caped Crusader inevitably ends up knee-deep in a moral dilemma, struggling to define justice, wrestling with his inner demons, or likely all three at once. Gotham City doesn't have a prison; it has Arkham Asylum, representative of Batman's internal turmoil. Plus, he literally dresses in black and grey.

    Then we have Nightwalker's Bruce Wayne, who's considerate and fair-minded and pure... and basically everything Batman isn't supposed to be. (#NotMyChristianGrey #NotMyBruceWayne)

    The DC Icons series is intended to show readers what their favorite superheroes were like before they became full-time superheroes. Their teen years. Bruce may not have been as jaded at sixteen, but some brooding would be nice. A splash of the dark, hairline cracks in the psyche. Instead the Bruce here is a run-of-the-mill Hollywood lead who just wants to do the right thing and gets his flirt on with a mysterious gorgeous criminal, who's just vanilla enough to avoid disapproving tongue-tasks from the moms that drove their sons to the theater and decided to buy an extra ticket.

    What I'm trying to say is—

    The entire narrative is akin to dragging a spoon across a bowl of porridge. Whenever I tried to focus and read instead of skim (which I confess to already doing very early on) I could feel my attention slipping away like grappling with a wet bar of soap.

    Maybe it's me. All I know is I felt like I was reading a

    Things happen, but nothing lands; there's no personal emotional impact.

    Madeline, I have nothing to say about her. She's generic, a cut-along-the-lines doll.

    Writing has the same issue as

    . Descriptions are delivered as though lifted straight from a comic panel. I want to read a book, not a novelization of another medium.

    If it were anyone except Marie Lu, I would've DNF-ed this book. But I persevered. My reward is the sour tang of disappointment and the bitter hope for something more.
