Monday, 18 July 2016

Rating: 4/5

"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"



I am becoming a real big fan of Noelle Stevensons' work! From reading The Lumberjanes graphic novels and now this, you can see some of the themes have transferred over to what is Stevensons unique writing 'stamp'!

Nimona tells the tale of a young, and somewhat unpredictable, evil sidekick with a knack for shapeshifting. Set in a universe where knights joust but still communicate using Skype, Nimona is a tale of forgiveness, bravery and facing your demons.

I loved the characters within this book and loved how Nimona's appearance isn't the usual 'female-lead' look; it varys within the book and I think this is important for people to see. The illustrations in this books are lovely and detailed, accompanied by a daring story-line which includes dragons, chemical warfare and love.

This book is definitely suitable for anyone and everyone and is an enchanting read! I only wish it was longer!

Let me know if you have read any of Noelle Stevenson's work and coment what you thought!

Love, K :)
