THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES! DC Icons continues with the first-ever YA origin story of superhero Black Canary, from the internationally bestselling author Alexandra Monir. In this thrilling novel, Dinah Lance's voice is her weapon. And in a near-future world where women have no rights, she won't hesitate to use everything she has--including her song--to fight back.
Dinah Lance was eight years old when she overheard the impossible: the sound of a girlsinging. It was something she was never meant to hear--not since Gotham City was taken over by the vicious, patriarchal Court of Owls, who have stripped women of everything--their right to work, to make music, to learn, to be free.
Now seventeen, Dinah's beginning to discover that her own voice is just as powerful as that unforgettable memory... But singing is forbidden. Fighting to balance her safety, a blossoming romance with new student Oliver Queen, and her own need to help other women and girls rise up, Dinah wonders if her song will finally be heard. And will her voice be powerful enough to destroy the Court of Owls once and for all?
