What to expect

The official novelization of the highly anticipated film

From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), comes Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment.

When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories.

But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past—she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family, and the world she’s grown to love.

Critics Review

  • “A female cyborg is birthed anew after her head and upper body are discovered and reassembled by a friendly scientist. Despite suffering from amnesia, the newly named Alita realizes she can thoroughly whup the ass of anyone who crosses her path—the power of martial arts transcends time and space, truly—and she’s soon recruited as an agent to kill off criminals in this dystopian world. She might even find out her true identity in due time, too.”
