Book Review: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu


Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.

Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.

In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

I was so excited to read this book, it is an honor to be part of this blog tour. I’ve been a fan of Batman ever since and he’s really my chosen hero in DC Comics. I promise this won’t affect my review, I’ll try my best for that. LOL. Moving on, below is my book review;

Batman: Nightwalker, I’ve heard lots of versions of Batman but I am still looking forward to every story that comes out. To be honest, I enjoyed this book, there were some slow parts on the first few pages of the book but when I got the one I wanted I just can’t stop reading. I end up finishing it at 3am in the morning LOL. I’d love to know what will happen to Bruce and Madeleine. I’d love to know who’s Madeleine. What made me read this slow on the few pages was, I am really hoping for more action but then I realized he’s still Bruce Wayne here. He’s just a newly graduated student, that was totally understandable. I enjoyed the part when he started to dig more about Madeleine. His curiosity is very Batman way. I loved how the author wrote about Bruce Wayne, it feels like watching a tv show or a movie because this reminds me of “Gotham” tv show. The book was carefully written and it was different from the usual Batman story. I liked how the author described Bruce Wayne here. And to be honest I am hoping there will be another Batman story like this one. I’d love to know how Bruce Wayne will turn in to the real Batman. 

I am really looking for more books like this. I haven’t read the other DC Icons book but I am pretty sure I will start reading them now. I really had a hard time to put this book down when I was reading it the other night. I almost forgot to have my dinner LOL. I enjoyed reading it. I’d love to recommend this book to other readers, I’m sure they will enjoy this as well. 

Bruce Wayne and Madeleine Wallace? I am rooting for those two. I am looking forward for more stories about them. Hope there will be someday. 

My Ratings

I write young adult novels, and have a special love for dystopian books. Ironically, I was born in 1984. Before becoming a full-time writer, I was an Art Director at a video game company. Now I shuffle around at home and talk to myself a lot. 🙂

I graduated from the University of Southern California in ’06 and currently live in LA, where I spend my time stuck on the freeways.
