Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are.
But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona’s powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.
All I have to say is: This is now my favourite graphic novel OF ALL TIME!
I’m no expert in graphic novels, but this is such a fun story that I fell instantly in love with it (Yes, a textbook case of insta-love!). I so wish this was a series! My bank account would curse me forever, but I would definitely buy all the books in the series, no matter how long it was!
The characters are unique and quirky, in the best possible way. We follow them on a lighthearted adventure, where we meet shape-shifters, crazy scientists, magical elements and a growing friendship.
This action-packed story will have you laughing out loud with its witty dialogues and lovable characters!
Nimona sure lived up to the hype around it! 😀
