Marie Lu Brings Batman to Life
(Cue theme music) Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh. Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh. Batman! Come on. You have to know the original cartoon theme song to Batman, right? Well, if you didn’t, I won’t judge you and your lack of knowledge of everything DC Icons. But, no worries. Because Batman is back and in young adult form. That is, novel form.

After meeting with Madeleine, a very intelligent young woman who happens to be an inmate at Arkham Asylum and a central figure in the Nightwalkers, Bruce has to decide if he has what it takes to save the city and himself.
