This book was a beautiful blend of heroic action along with personal moments and really solid characterizations of Clark and Diana. The art by Tony Daniel is to die for. The action moments are big and bombastic as befitting powerful godlike heroes and yet the moments when Clark and Diana are together, they are so vulnerable and humanized as simply man and woman in a blossoming relationship.
One of my favorites is the balcony scene where we see how these two contrast together. Soule keeps them truly individual, we see how different they are but then we see how there are many things to connect them. Clark is still very restrained while Diana is confident and both are strong willed. It makes for an intriguing set- up. I can't wait to see Diana teach Clark a thing or two when it comes to martial training. ( I always have them sparring in my fics.)
My next fave scene is where Diana battles Doomsday. The girl is such a badass. I love how the intimate scenes are juxtaposed with the battle scenes.
Also thumbs up for connecting this book to the DCU and the creation of a female Amazon in Hessia who is a positive role model of femininity for Diana and Diana expressing her anger and hurt at her loss of her family. Unlike her own title where the Amazons have been cut out of the narrative while being tarred as killers of men and slavers of male children and Diana rarely seems to mourn them.
