“You can’t just go round murdering people. There are rules, Nimona.”
Nimona, a wild young shapeshifter, finds a new talent… when it comes to being evil.
“In the meantime…how would you feel about robbing a bank? “
“Positively! I feel positively about robbing a bank!”
She teams up with Lord Ballister Blackheart – the villain who is trying to take down the local Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics.
Blackheart is sure that the Institute is up to something and with Nimona by his side, he finally has a chance to ruin them.
“You thought I was crazy?”
“No, no, crazy in a GOOD way! Evil mad scientist kind of thing!”
Oh. My. Gosh.
I really don’t normally go for comic books.
But something about this (okay, I’ll admit it – it was seeing all those glowing Goodreads reviews) made me pick this odd little duck up. And I’m so happy that I did.
In just a few small lines and short phrases – I have fallen completely in love with this punk Nimona.
She was just so…pureheartedly evil in such a charming way! I instantly connected with this little lost girl and was so invested in this storyline.
I also adored the battle between Blackheart and his arch rival – Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin – it was so much fun!
All in all, this was a super-fast read but it was TOTALLY worth it!
“Aw yeah, let’s make some evil plans!”
