“Batman: Nightwalker” puts a new twist on Bruce Wayne’s origin story

“Batman: Nightwalker” by #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu is the latest in the DC Icons Series (“Wonder Woman: Warbringer” by Leigh Bardugo, the first of the series, came out last August and was an instant New York Times bestseller). “Batman: Nightwalker” is available now wherever books are sold.

The young adult novel is a brand-new origin story for Bruce Wayne. In “Batman: Nightwalker”, Wayne is Gotham City’s most underrated detective, willing to risk everything to help a girl who may be his worst enemy. Here’s the full synopsis:

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, taking out the city’s elites one by one. Meanwhile, Bruce is about to become eighteen and inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Industries and all the tech gadgetry that comes with it. But on the way home one night, he makes an impulsive choice and is sentenced to community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most nefarious criminals. The most intriguing inmate in Arkham is Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. A girl who will only speak to Bruce. He’s getting further with her than any of the police have, but is she giving him the clues he needs to track down and stop the Nightwalkers, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees?
