Nimona. “We’re Villains! Villains kill people sometimes!”

Nimona  by Noelle Stevenson

Nimona has been on my to-read list for quite some time. I’d been hearing great things about it and I really liked the artwork. So, while I was noodling at the library the other day, I saw it as a featured read and I quickly grabbed it.

I absolutely loved it. The artwork is wonderful, the dynamics between all the characters are so well developed, and it’s a story/plot that I’ve never read before..truly refreshing.

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.

My favorite quote?

We’re Villains! Villains kill people sometimes! ~Nimona

It’s such a boss quote and Nimona is so boss!
