Summary from Goodreads

Dr. Harleen Quinzel grew up in an abusive household with a criminal and became a psychologist to deal with her own broken family. At Arkham Asylum, she attempted to treat the Joker and instead fell hopelessly in love with him, helping him escape and becoming a member of his organization. Quinzel became Harley Quinn, a bizarre contradiction of violence and mercy. She blames Batman for her inability to maintain a stable relationship with the arch-villain, and that causes her to have an abiding hatred for the hero, who she seeks to kill. Upon capture she becomes a violent inmate at Belle Reve Penitentiary, and is assigned to the group of government-maintained super villains known as the Suicide Squad.

My Thoughts

5 out of 5 Stars

This was fantastic, I adored this book so much. Harley Quinn is one of my favourite villains so when I was offered this book from the publisher I immediately said yes. Also this cover is simply gorgeous.

This story is the origins of Harley Quinn. The story begins when Harleen Quinzel is seven and then we follow the events that led to her meeting the Joker and becoming Harley Quinn.

I adored Harley Quinn in this story, she was such a strong character. I couldn’t put this book down and I had to keep reading.

As usual I’m not going into too much detail about the plot so I don’t spoil it, I will say however it is very well written.

This book is a must read for any fans of Harley and DC Comics, and I must read the others in the series aswell.
