Circe the super-sorceress has managed to get her hands on an enchanted statue imprisoning an ancient, magical monster. When Circe unleashes the mystical beast, it overpowers her mind—and steals her powers! Only Wonder Woman can stand up to their combined strength and save her mortal enemy--and the world--from certain doom.
Sorceress Circe hates Wonder Woman, and would do anything to destroy her. So when a magic mirror in her Hall of Doom reveals the location of Pandora’s Box, she immediately teleports there, where she finds Dr. Leo Roberts, a tomb raider. In exchange for his life, Dr. Roberts offers the location of the Trinity Beast, which Circe believes could destroy Wonder Woman for good. Using her power to transform Dr. Roberts into a winged beast, Circe flies to Mt. Vesuvius to find the Hydra, the first part of the Trinity Beast. But her flight through Vesuvius causes an eruption, and Wonder Woman has to take action to save Pompeii from the lava. Meanwhile, Circe is led by the Hydra to the next two parts of the Trinity Beast, the Griffin and the Gorgon. But once all the pieces are together, Circe finds that the Beast is controlling her, rather than the other way around. Only Wonder Woman’s Amazon strength can save Circe from the evil Beast, though Circe is anything but grateful. Like the other books in this series for reluctant readers, this book’s design features large print and ample white space, as well as large, colorful letters used to illustrate sound effects in the story. The author’s descriptions of both Wonder Woman’s and Circe’s powers are in easy to understand language for younger readers. Young superhero fans will be satisfied with the action, and they will even learn a bit about Greek mythology as well. Reviewer: Magi Evans; Ages 8 to 11.
