Wayne of Gotham: A Novel by Tracy Hickman book review

Two men separated by murder: Thomas, the rebellious doctor and heir to the vast Wayne empire, and Bruce, his son, whose life is forever altered by witnessing his parents' murder. The slaying of Thomas and Martha Wayne is the torturous point on which Bruce turns to become Batman.
The Dark Knight's file on the case has long been closed, the foundations of Bruce Wayne's secret life secure in the simple genesis of a mugging gone horribly wrong.
These foundations are shaken, however, when an unexpected guest invades the grounds of Wayne Manor, raising questions about the event that ended the lives of the mother he loved and the father he worshipped, and sparked his unquenchable drive to protect and avenge.
To discover his real family history, Batman must face down old foes, his only confidant, and the evil heart of Arkham Asylum, and shoulder the new burden of a dark legacy.


I haven't read many batman books and I was a really had no expectations about this book since I have never read any other books by this author.
I was pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed this book. I read this last night and ended up staying up late and really wanted to finish it all last night but unfortunately I was so tired but as soon as I got up I continued reading until the end.  I am not sure if big Batman comic book fans will love this but personally I very much enjoyed it very much and I think I will most likely be reading it again in the future.

I give this 4 out of 5
