Catwoman: Soulsteaker by Sarah J. Maas, review by Vanshika Agrawal

Catwoman: Soulstealer written by the author, Sarah J. Maas focuses on a character named Selina Kyle. It shows her struggles financially and physically throughout the novel at various events and also demonstrates of how she overcomes those obstacles. At the beginning, she is a fighter who is trying to earn money for her sister's operation. She has bruises all over her body and limps but still risks her life for her only family member's happiness. Her will makes her win everytime and she pursues this illegal way of income because of her sister's disease's operation. As the book progresses, a lot of interesting twists and turns take place. She meets the character Luke Fox who accompanies her on her adventures. She fights Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn with Luke to free Gotham City from horrible leaders when Batman was away.
  
This book was good but wasn't an attention grabber right at the beginning. It was slow to the plot but when it got there, it became interesting. I was lost a few times during the novel but the characters acted certain ways because of their helplessness which can be related to society. I have not watched any Batman series but this book was informative enough and I felt like I knew everything already. It was an exciting adventure to be a part of and how things unravel the way they do in this book.

I would give this book a 4/5 because of it's slow way through the plot. The novel did a fantastic job of introducing the characters as well as the setting. I would recommend this book to a person who loves action, suspense and a hint of the romance genre.
