This was fantastic! Better than Wonder Woman, almost as good as Cat Woman. I loved really young Batman and would love to continue reading about him. Marie Lu did a great job with this interpretation.

While this isn't my favourite Batman story, I really did appreciate the author's approach to the character. I really enjoyed the mystery and I think that anyone who's always wandered about how Bruce Wayne would be like as a crime-solving teen detective, this is the novel for you.

After reading the fantastic 'Wonder Woman: Warbringer', I had high hopes for this. But I found Batman's story to be too sanitized, too clean and idealized. Bruce Wayne does not act like Batman at all. He's too nice and not brooding, too trusting and not clever. Madeleine was an interesting character but not logical enough to be realistic. I did like Bruce as a character, but he wasn't Batman. Alfred was amazing but all other character sort of faded into the background. Dianne and Harvey aren't interesting enough for me to even talk about them.
This book didn't delve deep enough into its characters, plot, and, most importantly, Batman. It doesn't stand out. It's just another piece of superhero YA.
'Batman: Nightwalker' was entertaining enough, but it was flawed and too convenient.

I really liked Marie Lu's version of how Bruce Wayne became Batman, but not my favorite. I kinda wished that there was more actual Batman action. ):

While I am more of a Marvel person, these DC-author compilations are quite the read. Batman was a superhero I knew little about, and reading this was a nice take on the "teenage" millionaire who watched over Gotham City. I have always loved Marie Lu's style/writing, and I'm glad to say she did not disappoint here! The plot was written amazingly, with great detailed action sequences and enough comic relief to relieve tension. I would definitely recommend this - to any superhero fan or not. @Siri of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

(Dun uh dun uh dun uh dun uh BATMAAAAAN!!) This was so cool! This book really shows how “good” billionaire Bruce Wayne was in his urge to save Gotham City. Maybe it was his youth, maybe it was his great friends, or maybe it was his parent’s beliefs that pushed him to take action in his “Batmobile”. This book really made Bruce more real, not just some super hero. Ok, AWESOME super hero. Still, I loved Marie Lu’s great depiction of The Great Batman’s past.

This is Batman's story before he became Batman by one of my favorite young adult author's, Marie Lu. Batman: Nightwalker is basically the action-packed origin story of Batman when he was just young Bruce Wayne. I enjoyed reading about Marie Lu's take on what caused Bruce Wayne to create his alter-ego, Batman.
