This is probably the book to start with if you're going to try the "World of Flashpoint" series as it explains why the world is basically entering World War 3 with the Atlanteans on one side and the Amazonians on the other. Mirroring WW1, the war begins with an assassination of a royal figure, Wonder Woman's mum, and from there quickly progresses to all out warfare with Britain being sunk by Aquaman. But rather than being exciting the book is more frustrating as the style of the narration is highly irritating as are the characters' actions.
Wonder Woman especially comes off as an incredibly stupid person. From initially coming off as forward thinking and intelligent, she quickly becomes reactionary, myopic, and makes foolish and rash decisions on the fly leading to all out warfare. Then, when she and Aquaman finally twig that they're being manipulated (which if they'd thought for a moment they would've known from the start) Aquaman then becomes stupid and begins making bad decisions. It's hard to care about either character when they're far too concerned with being the toughest kid on the block.
And for anyone thinking WW isn't stupid, how can she go months occupying Britain without knowing that the Amazonians had built massive prison ships and concentration camps?! Is she blind as well as stupid? And why are there concentration camps to start with!?
There are also very "novelistic" devices put into the story to conveniently explain the situation, such as when the two traitors on both sides are caught kissing in the midst of an attack. WW walks in and sees this (very Telemundo), immediately realising that she's being used and acts.Read more ›
I highly recommend the other books in the series also.
