Description: 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.
Nimona is a wonderful story about a shapeshifter who wants to be a villain. The whole story is complete and the characters are all amazing and well thought out. Each mishap that follows Nimona and Lord Blackheart is funnier and wilder than the last. I read this back when it was online and jumped at the opportunity to own it. (Imagine my surprise when I found this review sitting in my drafts and never published, what was I thinking?)
I have been waiting for the printed version of this web comic since its birth. I started following Noelle early on tumblr and instantly fell in love with her style.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK?
Yes YES YES! I love Noelle’s artwork and can’t get enough!
